American Jewish news on Canadian Jewish news

It never ceases to amaze me how wrong the Americans can be when it comes to anything Canadian. http://www.forward.com/articles/121602/

Well Gus, unless it's just a coincidence, I believe the author of that article is:

1. A Canadian from Toronto.

2. A member of babble (at least an ex-member - he used to post here under that very name).

3. Filing this same story with various newspapers [url=http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1137409.html]around the world[/url], so it's hard to know where it originated.

Having said that, I think he's wrong as well. It never ceases to amaze me how wrong Canadians can be when it comes to anything.

And do we really need to read that crap? Puke.

Double puke. From one of the commentors:

 

Well it certainly isn't hard to conjure up an American connection. Choose in the states, slowly, are beginning to to understand that yesterday's "liberals" are more friendly to the Palestinian terrorist than they are to the Israeli victims. It's so fashionable among the progresives to champion the so-called downtrodden, even though they are the root cause of their own problems Those schlobs (the 70% who voted like their forefathers in Germany during the 30s). I'm told is beginning to get the wake-up call put out by Obama. Has anybody noticed the resemblance to the Neutrality Act passed in the 30s that so delayed the defeat of Hitler. It's pretty clear that Obama would have voted for that act, and I'm glad to see that at least in Canada, they are waking up to the danger caused by the unintended consequences of liberals who have lost their sense of history. Like so many others. I used to be one.

Gus, no offense, but, really, we know and understand their narrative far better than our own or anyone else's. There is really nothing to be learned from that other than to acknowledge the echo chamber . Although I suppose I could also suggest that it seems the conservative heartland has adopted Zionism as both an imperial battering ram and as a prop to claim, "we're not racist. See! We love all these nice white Jewish folk now that we've finally let them into the country clubs."

I couldn't agree with you more, Gus, and the hell of it is I'm exactly 1/2 American.  Deer Lodge, Montana.  Home of the state prison. 

The highway sign actually reads "Home of the [blah, blah, blah] Prison" and their sports team is The Wardens.

If you got it, you flaunt, I suppose.

Worried about a friend who hasn't been at work and hasn't been reachable at home.  What should I do?
