|4. Find an Even Bigger Gladiator
to Fight Your Battles
"My big brother can lick your big brother!", is another of those fantasies engaged in regularly by children. Even the strongest champion Israel ever had - the United States - is exhibiting unmistakable signs of its fatigue and possible annoyance at its earlier commitment to the "special relationship" that has existed between them until now. Meanwhile, not one other country in the world has given indication that it is willing to be more than perfunctorily proper to Israel, at very best.
5. Resolve to Fight to the Death
An Israeli physician, Baruch Goldstein, recently went berserk and murdered forty Arabs at prayer in a mosque in Hebron. All he succeeded in doing was to ensure his own death, and to advance and escalate the intensity of the next round of retaliation against those whose life and ideals he piously professed to value. Likewise, the cretin who "resolved" the problems of his people by assassinating Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. Neither of these acts seem to be a particularly sensible choice for anyone who does not harbor a death wish for himself and for all his descendants.
Those who became crypto-Jews during the Spanish Inquisition, hoping thereby to conceal their identity behind the protective coloration of the majority, were always singled out for special torture when apprehended. The crushing stress of being Marranos (in Spanish: "The Damned") and of covertly clinging to one's Jewishness while pretending to be otherwise, only gives deeper meaning to the familiar Yiddish dictum, "Es ist schwer zu sein ein Jud!" - "It's tough to be a Jew!" (a phrase probably more familiar to most Jews than are their most sacred rituals).
7. Just Disappear
Of course, the problem of Anti-Semitism would disappear in one generation with the agreement by all Jews to stop reproducing themselves, thus depriving the Pecking Order of its supply of Designated Victims. Naturally this would require the selection of some other group of unfortunates for that signal honor, because once there were no Jews to fill that position, they would simply have to be reinvented.
The idea of bloodlessly creating a world that is "Judenrein" (in German: "Cleansed of Jews") in such a manner, stands no realistic chance of attainment, given the procreative instincts that are also imprinted on our genes. This does not negate the perverse but unstated attractiveness of handing over exclusive rights to our perpetual victimhood to someone else, even though that would be a patently unsportsmanlike thing to do.
If the world were suddenly to be deprived of all Jews, who would be the worse off for it? Only two groups - Professional Jews, including the rabbinate, who would then be obliged to seek another line of gainful work; and any other poor souls naive enough to volunteer for that position at the bottom of the Pecking Order.
This brings us to a consideration of the greatest taboo of them all - assimilation. Spontaneous assimilation has always been the response to even a temporary removal of the extrinsic pressures provided by Anti-Semitism. In fact, whenever there has been a brief respite from persecution, Jews have always responded by leaving their religious and cultural roots, in droves. According to the latest figures from the Anti-Defamation League, over 100,000 American Jews have converted to other religions and cults in the past twenty years alone!
