When everything fails to find a reason for anti-Semitism, the thirst for a reason overrides logic. Thus you'll always find Jews who will find relief in blaming themselves. For some, anything is better than confronting an evil that is so old, irrational and devastating, that it becomes metaphysical. So, of course, there will be those who will blame ourselves for Goldstone, for Arab lies and incitement over the Temple Mount, or go as far as blame ourselves for the butchered children that Hamas has bombed in buses and markets, streets and markets. And anything goes like that. Plus, when Jews fall prey of this neurosis, anti-Semites applaud: "Yes ! Yes! It's You who are to blame for Hamas and Hezballah's rockets !" It's better to find oneself to blame, than having to deal with something as abstract as Jewish fate. So both Goldstone and Herzog. Please Haaretz, don't swallow up my post.
