I’m on OkCupid. Trying to find love and all that jazz. This is not what this post is about though. I got a message from a 51 year old man from Australia. Here it is:
I hope one day to see Israel respecting other countries cultural heritage,borders and culture. Why can’t you just leave the Palestinian people alone,and go back to Poland?
Why do people do that on a DATING site? Also, any sentence that starts with I hope one day or I wish.. is so damn preachy, come on! And on top of that, it is the stupidest statement ever – it’s something I expect from a child. I am not responsible for everything wrong with Israel – Just like a Palestinian is not responsible for all suicide bombings – I can tell the difference – Nazis do not equal the German people or Germany.
Why can’t I go back to Poland? I can’t speak for all Jews, but the Nazis took my grandmother’s home and murdered her family. Besides, us Jews came from all over the place, we can’t ALL go back to Poland.
I’m getting worked up over nothing, but what else is there to do on a Saturday afternoon?
