    I guess most people of most ethnic origins find it difficult at times to keep under control the embarrassing aspects of their ethnicity ! Most of us Greeks feel the compulsion to behave most of the time like Zorbas the Greeks so the world does not stop thinking we are so cute and virile. Of course in acting this way we make asses of ourselves. You Jews sometime forget that you are the Chosen People and start behaving as if you were Lebanese Maronite "Christians", in the process losing your dignity. This counting of how many Jews are in the new American Senate and House of Representatives is, as I have said in another blog of mine, PATHETIC, PAROCHIAL, TRIBAL, AND DUMB. And also, mark my words, this is something that will piss off a lot of Americans of other ethnic origins. Is it smart to do this as we are approaching the day that Iran will be attacked to destroy its nuclear facilities ?

    from the article: First thought on most Jewish Congress ever: Wow. Second thought: Oy
