Are you a Jew?

When I got into a fruitless political debate with a leftist German individual regarding the war on terrorism, radical Islam, Israeli-Palestinian conflict and president Bush's policies in Iraq, I was shocked to hear this question at the end of the argument:

Are you Jewish?

Well, if being against the assholes and idiots of this world means to be a Jew, then I am very well proud to be one. No question asked! But it runs deeper than what you and I think. Back in Iran, I could also be considered an agent of Zionists if I disagreed with the theocratic regime and therefore they would label me with "You are a Jew" tag as well.

It is ironic, I'd say!

Winston, I get called a Jew all the time on Arab blogs and it drives me crazy. You're handling it a lot better than I do!

I've been called a jew over the internet.... both as an insult and a compliment.

It *is* amazing that one is atuomatically pegged as Jewish if one believes in the right of Israel to exist. Usually it's said in a derogatory manner.
People are idiots.

If you hang out on "progressive" forums like....Babble (appropriately named) then in order to be a Jew you have to sell out by proclaiming that you are not like the "others" and are anti-Zionist.Otherwise you are constantly subjected to abuse, especially by the "progressive" moderators.
