    Just like the old Russian Czars who hated Jews with a passion, today's haters want to impose the New Pale of Settlement again. They won't allow Jews to live beyond some "Green Line", nor to travel on "Holy Islamic Soil" (tm), nor to pray on the Jews' own holiest site, the Jewish Temple Mount in Jerusalem, nor to build apartments in the capital city of the Jewish state. And just like back then, there are now Jewish Jew-haters and "Best Friends of the Jews" who support the Jew-haters in their quest for an ethnically pure space, free of Jews, Judenrein. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it!
