Can't They Just Die?

Israel, Disarmed - Charles Krauthammer - National Review Online

Nazi was "National Socialism" -- the Nazis nationalized industries, pushed government control into all areas of life -- I'm not sure they got as far as politicizing the weather, as we have here, but at least close. Oh, and they were experts at demonizing their opposition as well as having scapegoats. Here it is banks, oil companies, the religious right, Fox News, Republicans. There it was the Bolsheviks, opposition parties, the signers of the WWI armistice -- certainly COMPLETELY different. Oh wait, except for those pesky Jews.

Somehow, they are a people for whom evil seems to have an insatialble appetite -- it is almost biblical, in fact, it IS Biblical. The forces of evil hate the Jews -- be they Jihadists, backwater 3rd world pagans, the bulk of the liberal elite (except for the Jewish ones -- and even many of them seem to be up for a bit of self-loathing), or our own version of evil incarnate, BO, seething at the Jewish menace. As Charles puts it:

The world is tired of these troublesome Jews, six million — that number again — hard by the Mediterranean, refusing every invitation to national suicide. For which they are relentlessly demonized, ghettoized, and constrained from defending themselves, even as the more committed anti-Zionists — Iranian in particular — openly prepare a more final solution.
Why? I like to think because Lucifer himself would like to see the end of the "chosen people", but even in a secular world, their existence, against all odds after thousands of years is a thorn in the side of moderninity. They "ought to go away". There is no Buddhist, Hindu or Muslim equivalent of a "nation / race / religion" all rolled into one. What in the world are they? Their very existence is a spot on the orthodoxy of atheism. Can't they see that it is "not adaptive" to be a Jew? Can't they be gone already?

The intelligentsia around the world and of course "citizen of the world" BO himself can barely contain his animosity. That "stiff necked people" ... like some oil well in the gulf or tea partiers in the US. Why will they just not bend to his will? Ah, the mysteries of life to those that would be king!
