Angry Jew is angry

OK, I didn't want to say anything about any of them. I wanted to hide under the bed like a cat in a thunderstorm until this whole thing was over. But McCain said it last week and Palin said it last night, that we have to protect Israel from Iran or there will be a "second Holocaust."

Excuse me? Besides Jew-hating, what is the similarity? The Holocaust took place in a different part of the world and involved millions of people in concentration camps, many of them citizens of the nation that put them there, not nuclear weapons aimed at another country. You don't get to invoke the Holocaust just because Jews are involved. In fact, especially not when Jews are involved, because I don't know if you've heard, but we're kind of sensitive about it.

But hey, while we're ringing the Holocaust bell, I get to mention that I have an uncle who was in Auschwitz. He told us not to vote for Obama because a black man can't get elected. He wanted us to support Giuliani because he would be strong on terrorism. We said Yaacov, you're nuts, Giuliani is a lisping megalomaniac and we wouldn't vote for him to head the Flatbush Historic Homes walking tour. What relevance does this have to anything? Absolutely none! But since we're making noises with our mouths about the Holocaust, I thought I'd throw it in.
