What Do Anti-Semites Have to Offer?

Anti-Semitism is a powerful, negative, thoroughly unholy phenomenon. Stripped of its negativity, however, its raw power can be used in the service of holiness.

Lieber Herr Rabbiner,

Du bist Mensch *und* Dynamit.

Mit Ausdrücken vorzüglichster Hochachtung für Ihr Werk und Judahism,

It;s a creative way of exploring the dynamics of hatred which is quite interesting as the basic values of privacy and modesty which occur in the mitzvahs lay the foundation of blessings. Reply

You really succeeded in entertaining and conveying your message...I would not have gotten it from a stuffy lecture. Reply

This is a superficial understanding of Nietzsche and German anti=semitism. Wagner does not belong in discussion. Go back to why the Egyptians enslaved the Jews and Laban Reply

in response to Lloyd A Cohen:

How Wagner very much belongs to the discussion at hand might begin with a reading of his 1869 treatise "Das Judenthum in der Musik." As for Nietzsche's relationship to Wagner, his 1889 book, "Nietzsche contra Wagner," is essential reading. But also highly pertinent to the discussion is Nietzsche's letter to his sister, Elisabeth Förster, of December 1887. Reply

Bravo und danke schone! Your Nietzsche portrayal was really as one would have pictured him.
Love the "old film" look as well. Always get a good laugh w/your combination German/Latin/Hebrew intonations. Keep it com'in! Yasher Koach and Hatzlacha!
