What is Israel even supposed to stand to gain from “provoking a conflict?” Such transparent antisemitism.

Already seeing people blame Israel for “trying to provoke a conflict” by manufacturing the news coming out of Donetsk. Obviously propaganda because Ynetnews broke the story.

I would like a better explanation of what is occurring in Donetsk than “pro-Russians/Russian proxies are threatening the Jewish community of Donetsk” or the “anti-Russians/Western proxies are attempting to demonize the pro-Russians by threatening the local Jewish community in the name of the pro-Russians.” Certainly it is nerve-wracking to look in from outside and not quite know what is happening, not know quite the scale of danger, but it is also unsettling that between the two strains of explanation, neither seems to be all that concerned for the safety of Jews in Donetsk, but with scoring points against their respective Russian or Western political opponents.

My father buys one kid. Cat kills kid. Dog kills cat. Stick kills dog. Fire burns stick. Water consumes fire. Ox drinks up water. The butcher slaughters ox. Angel of death slays butcher. And God, the Holy One, kills the angel of death. That’s what we teach our children. It doesn’t get any better? Probably not.

yes we sang this to the hybridized melody of three blind mice and i know an old lady who swallowed a fly last night what do you want from me?

YES BECAUSE MODERNISM 

it’s a goddamn modernist haggadah from ’20s Berlin

I am tired and distracted. There is a maintenance guy in my shoebox apartment scraping away old grout, it is freezing cold for some reason, did I already mention that I’m tired? You can’t blame me if I don’t pick up on these things right away. 1919, Modernism, Germany, Jewish Modernism. Got it. This is indeed relevant to my interests. Important to show that modern citizenship is possible without compromising one’s Jewishness, to show that we made important contributions to modernity, to making the world we all live in. We did a terrible job of singing this song last night.

I feel awful that some of the stuff I’ve written lately is making Jewish kids scared. I’d feel awful if I didn’t say it, though. I feel awful that the sense of security many American Jewish kids had has been so severely damaged. I feel awful that so many of us were, while appalled, not surprised.

So, when I write about antisemitism, it’s as an American Ashkie in America. I would advise against extrapolating it to the rest of the world. When reading about antisemitism in, say, Ukraine, you might give the greatest weight to what Jews from Ukraine have to say about antisemitism in Ukraine.

That said, I just got back from a seder, I would like to enjoy a bit of time out of the house of bondage. No more talking about antisemitism from me.

I have come forth from Mitzrayim. I am thirsty.
