Shana Tova

Not that my Jewish readers (I have quite a few) will read this until after the event, of course.

But have you noticed how the Congress of the supposedly secular United States has this festival off? Yet there are a million more Arabs (by no means all of them Muslims, of course) than Jews in America. There are far, far more Catholics, who might wish to keep, say, the Assumption, or Corpus Christi. As a proportion of the population, there are not really all that many more Jews in America than in Britain.

So why? I am not trying to make a point here. I am just wondering why.

I'm Jewish, and I've already read it. Thank you.

Isn't it because America is controlled by a sinister cabal of Zio-Nazis?

I wouldn't have thought so, no. Why does your blog link to David Irving?

Anonymous, it's a pleasure.
