I gatherered so much from his post

1) it works for an Israeli company ? { why does he refer to himself as "it" }

2) You can find a lot of Israelis in an Israeli company. {you don't need to be Einstein to figure that out }

3) Next statement "If you are hired in US, u are somewhat on your own" is either a statement about labour protection laws in the US or it's some kind of lament of lonelines. Perhaps the self-same song that found a path through the sad heart of Ruth when sick for home she stood in tears among the alien corn ?

4) Then he goes on to say he absolves the world from any blame.


I am unmoved by the locking of the thread. But my curiosity is aroused by it's interpretation as anti-semitic. It seems more drivel to me than spleen. Or am I missing something here ?

Sometimes things should be deleted instead of closed. Let's just say that this was not the first version of this post and the poster had been asked to find something else to discuss.

Probably it is an overreaction, but there is a reason for it. Unfortunately people become defensive, sensitive and insecure when injustice happens. Same with gays, blacks, and any other minority group who happened to be abused in the past.

Just to be clear: this post is not the anti-semitic one. The anti-semitic one has already been deleted.
