I had a pretty good buzz going on at this point and decided to let it all hang out. “Do you get money from Israel?” I asked. “I think a lot of goyim resent the fact that we send so much money to Israel and they send it back to you.”
“The Jews in Israel hate us and many here hate them back,” he replied. Apparently, moving to the Holy Land before the Messiah returns is bad form. It’s like opening your presents on December 24th, or in their case, celebrating Christmas at all. A lot of anti-Semitism is based on the assumption that Jews are a unified front, but talking to this guy made the entire religion sound more fractured than the skinhead scene of the 80s.
