Scaramouche smacks around the cliche-spouting Farber here.
Speaking of the “official Jews,” Laura Rosen Cohen has some thoughts on the front page National Post article about their internecine battles:
First of all-there is prestige. There is a Yiddish/Hebrew word called “yichus”. That loosely means “standing”, but it’s also kind of like a measure of your all over prestige. It can be familial, or career related. It also refers to lineage-like for marriage purposes-what your background is.
There are a lot of people who are obsessed with yichus in the Jewish community. They want to be the voice of the community. Some people even get to the point where their entire identities are as Professional Jews. That is to say that they can spend their entire “professional” lives in the bubble of the Jewish community. (…)
The other thing that is notable in my view, is that all the Big Fancy Executive President Hot Shots of the Official Jews quoted in this article are men. Don’t you think that’s weird? And it’s always the same guys, year after year after year ZZZZZZZZZZZ.
There is very little “diversity” in the Official Jewish establishment and most of the establishment tilts left or moderately to the right but thrives on the non-existent antisemitism industry in Canada and misunderstands completely the idea of free speech.
