In today's Haaretz English edition - an interview with Lantzman:
"Lanzmann noted that Jean Paul Sartre once said, "anti-Semitism is not an opinion; it is a crime" - and was right. "Today, however, anti-Semitism is an opinion. Just as there are people who don't like meat or a certain fabric, there are people that don't like Jews."
I would rather say anti-semitism is a generalization, racist, masked as an opinion.
Rationalizing insanity is the hallmark of all racists responses to the complexities of life.
The challenge life poses to every human being is, has always been, to avoid the crowd, to stand up to the maddening crowd.
