Not trying to be controversial at all here, but I seriously think that (American) Jews have a strong subconscious death wish. I've felt this way for a decade or so.
What other explanation is there for Spielberg (appeasement factor) and so many other Jewish higher-ups in the left/socialist/Marxist media, government, entertainment, and academia? Simply, they seem to feel a great internal guilt, and they seem to want to destroy themselves.
The problem with that is they are going to take all the rest of us with them.
Don't you mean leftist American Jews?
(Or perhaps a subset of that group? Not all leftist Jews have really thought this thing out. Many are reacting reflexively.)
Only the liberal self hating variety.
The term I use for these "Jewish" left-wing, self-haters is "Oven Jews".
Many of my relatives fall into this category, and I have no aversion to calling them this to their faces.
How did Schlemielberg go from Schindler's List to THIS travesty? I think the retaliations were like this NSA wiretapping situation. At the time, anybody with a lick of compassion was all for it and only sorry that things went wrong with the one hit. This was before revenge had been redefined as a hate crime. This was when it was remembered that through turning the other cheek Hister was allowed to carry out his diabolical scheme to rid European Jews of their rightful places in Euro society. This was when "Never Again" still meant something.
I remember Munich. I remember sitting in my Eigth grade classroom and hearing the news on a hot Indian Summer day in Springfield, IL. I remember the sick feeling in my stomach, and the loathing for the palestinian terrorists I felt, that felt like it would never leave. Unsurprisingly, it has never left, and I have never seen anything out of anyone that calls themself palestinian to change my mind. Never. Not once.
