Deborah Lipstadt, self-hating Jew.

Donald Trump’s "Inadvertent Anti-Semitism"
Trump may abhor anti-Semitism, but, however unconsciously, he instrumentalizes it and spreads it. Then he doubles down to defend doing so.
I thought I'd posted these before, but maybe not.

"The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies.
We want to emigrate as a respected people"

See previous discussion of Jason Stanley, with a mention of Lipstadt at the bottom, and links to Amos Schocken and Sara Lipton.

We're back to ressentiment again (a link to the previous post). European Jews identifying with their torturers and abusing their own closest relatives, Palestinians, but also Mizrahi.

I've said a few times that  Muslims are the new Jews, the new bookish intellectual outsiders. But I ignored the corollary, that they're the new urban elite and hated by the peasants. The Brexit mess woke me up a bit. And Sadiq Khan's smiling Blairism.

Jews, Muslims, and the ethnic Chinese in Malaysia.

A Bulgarian waiter I know explained to me that Muslims and Jews don't do physical work; they're in business and management. If they work in restaurants they work in their own restaurants. Leaving 10 minutes later I said goodnight to his North African coworker and we had a laugh.
