Count Me As Non-Offended

I notice Jews getting up in arms about John Kerry’s statements on Holocaust Memorial Day. I don’t see why the non-Jewish majority, even John Kerry, need to modify their behavior to accommodate any Jewish holiday or observance, including Holocaust Memorial Day, which traditional Orthodox Jews don’t observe anyway. So count me as non-offended.

I also don’t care about the statement that Israel is becoming an apartheid state. I don’t think it is an accurate charge, but I saw nothing evil in apartheid. It allowed for the most prosperous state in all of Africa.

It’s time the goyim buck up and stop worrying about minority sensibilities and instead pursue their group interest as passionately as Jews, blacks, Chinese and others tribesmen do. Jews, without shame, run a Jewish state of Israel and the goyim can lump it if they don’t like it. I think that’s great. I love Jewish nationalism.

I wish South Africans whites were as devoted to maintaining their white society as Jews are in carving out a Jewish state. I believe in nationalism for everyone.

From the Daily Beast:

Exclusive: Kerry Warns Israel Could Become ‘An Apartheid State’
The secretary of state said that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become ‘an apartheid state,’ like the old South Africa. Jewish leaders are fuming over the comparison.
If there’s no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon, Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state,” Secretary of State John Kerry told a room of influential world leaders in a closed-door meeting Friday.
Senior American officials have rarely, if ever, used the term “apartheid” in reference to Israel, and President Obama has previously rejected the idea that the word should apply to the Jewish state. Kerry’s use of the loaded term is already rankling Jewish leaders in America—and it could attract unwanted attention in Israel, as well.
