    First of all, I condemn the murder of six million Jews, Bundists, Zionists, Orthodox Jews, six million Ukrainians that we hardly mention, the homosexuals, and gypsies. We haven't learned the lesson because we don't remember enough about the other victims like the homosexuals, Ukrainians, 2 million Poles, and we put an ideology with the holocaust dead. They had no real ideology. They were massacred out of hate. I must ask what about the Palestinians and Lebanese civilians who have died while people turned a blind eye, while many brave Jews said it was immoral. What about the pain of those people. There is no Arab holocaust in Palestine or Lebanon, but the suffering is deeply real, and they feel the wounds 100%. Think of their pain, too. I know the horrors of the camps. I've seen the pictures. We are all people.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
