Guilt Part 2

After doing a bit of research on Anti-Semitism in Italy, I've noticed that use of swastiskas by Anti-Israel groups epitomizes, dangerously, what I'm talking about. The Holocaust, perhaps the Jews' greatest weapon in defending action (read: war, military retaliation, lobbying) has in the last 20 or so years, been stripped away, disappeared, and ironically, used by their enemies. The most recent and horrific act of genocide is so FAR REMOVED from the modern Jew and the world entire, it has ceased to be relevant and effectual in any way. Jews' don't have any ownership of the Holocaust anymore; Anti-Israel activists are now paralleling the Jewish State to fascism and even the Nazis. Jews = Nazis..Incredible.

What happens when what you believe in is no longer threatened? Can Judaism survive and succeed if nothing is trying to stop it? Or will it eventually lose its image of struggle and triumph over evil, and then finally disappear?

just a random thought...i went to the spy museum yesterday with the imma and they talked about what it takes to be a spy and yada yada yada...the interesting thing was that when giving the reason of patriotism, the israeli flag came on the screen, and being the only other country shown in this little video (besides the US)was very well, curious. i dont know why, well, i just felt the message being sent to viewers was odd. also, did you know that russia's secret intelligence crest has the bat signal on it? i shit you not. they have the batman symbol as part of their country's freakin symbol of intelligence. since when do they get to claim batman?
