No Israeli apology is required. You can’t go through life apologizing. The Mavi Marmara and its pasengers were no angels and deserve no special considertion. When you play with fire, expect to get burned. The major problem in Israel and its foreign relations is the failure of much of the world to understand that they are dealing with non ghettoized Jews who are no longer dependent on the tolerance of some gentile authority to decide issues of life and death for Jews. Apologizing is a one way ticket back to the ghetto and a fifth class existence based on the tolerance of others. The Europeans much prefer the pre 1945 psycholgy of Jews. Well, Europeans should understand, as should Israeli leftists, that those days are gone foprever.

Curb Your Enthusiasm’s episode last night tackled a multitude of Jewish anxieties last night, from geopolitics, domestic politics and the perils of dessert! Awesome and hilarious.
