Shver tzu zayn a yid

Meaning: it's hard to be a Jew (I know you don't believe it, but it's true)
1. The article about the Hassidic principal of a troubled Bronx high school (I see movie coming with Seth Rogen in the title role). When she heard that they were going to have a Jewish principal, one of the mothers of the students said: "so now the children are going to have to pay for lunch?"
And there you have it in a nutshell: this is what comes to mind when people think of Jews. The brains of people have been polluted for so many years with this crap, it just comes naturally.

2. In Italy there is a brouhaha because they have a book fair and there are protests because Israel is invited as a guest of honor. And as we all know, Israel is really the only truly evil state in the world; the only state that deserves condemnation and reprobation in the entire community of nations. Everybody else gets a free pass from the arbiters of moral statehood, the usual contingent of lefty Israel haters and Arabs. But this is a book fair, and the writers represented are artists, not members of the Knesset. Apparently, there are also protests at a book fair soon to happen in Paris. So what else is new?
