Dear Elaine Nugent , you wrote

>When are these fools going to learn that we Jews always outlive our tormentors?...the ancient Greeks, Romans, Hitites, communists, nazis and the list is endless...even the europeans, especially France..it seems young Moslems are rioting in the suburbs of France by burning cars and synagogues..Methinks that the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is turning his wrath on Jew-Haters...Am Yisroel Chai!

I wish I shared your optimism . Jews I appreciate so much were once so widespread in my country (Poland) ... seventy years ago. Yddish was as common in my country as Polish...Where are these people now? Why have they not outlived their tormentors? Why is it so hard today to find a single Jewish cemetary here ?

Where are once so flourishing Jewish communities of Arabia ? Where are the Banu Quraisa? ...Why have they not outlived their Muslim tormentors?...

These Islamic barbarians want to complete what the previous tormentors and exterminators of Jews have left unfinished . I'll share your optimism the moment Islam stops existing.
