    No, but that doesn't take away from the fact that anti-Semitism still exists.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    true and yet somehow the Jews don't constantly play victim and blame all their problems on antisemitism.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    A lot of Israel's problems are based on anti-Semitism.

    Personally, I think the whole pc thing is stupid. Whatever happened to people using better judgement by not using a word or phrase? What are we two? It's ridiculous. It's as tho' everyone is terrified the pc police are going to come and drag them to the town square to be tarred and feathered. Anyway, it's an ugly word used to invoke ugliness. And it certainly makes no sense for blacks to throw it out at their buddies either. Using it shows what a jackass someone can be. And acting like it's banned just makes people want to use it all the more. It's all about having some common sense.

    They do "cry about it." In this very forum, even. And they are completely justified in doing so, as are black people when pointing out that racism still exists. If prejudice and discrimination still exist, then people are entirely justified in "crying about it" and pointing it out.

    wrongo boyo. most of the people crying about antisemitism are not jews, just like most of the people pissing themselves about racism in this forum are not black.

    point is, Jews got over it and are successful (hell to hear the antisemites tell it, Jew control damn near everything in the country), many blacks are still bitching about slavery and waiting for reparations

    the Jewish people, like black people, are not a homogenous group. There are plenty of examples of peopel who play the victim in both groups. Just like there are plenty of W.A.S.P.S and other christian whites who llay the victim as well.

    Race and ethnicity are not what lead to playing the "victim card". Nor is there any real connection to political orientation. I mean, look at how many white conservatives play the victim in your average thread concerning bias in the media or affirmative action.

    Some groups play the victim more than others. Unfortunately, the group that has the biigest chip on their shoulders, are blacks, especially American blacks.
