What can we call this attitude?


.
chosen-ness“, “exceptionality“, “elitism” “superiority“, “specialness“, “distinctiveness“, “uniqueness“, “exceptional suffering“, “much smarter-ness“, and all that arrogant, presumptuous and delusional attitudes flood cyberspace, both by the religious and secular alike; yet we are not supposed to even discuss these issues and pretend we don’t even notice!
I am sorry, but that does not work for me, honesty demands calling the spade a spade. Thus, I have no other option but to keep poking into this bubble until it pops or I die trying.

“We were raised with two Yiddish concepts about Christians: kopf and punim. Yiddishe kopf and Goyishe kopf. To say that someone had a Yiddishe kopf (A Jewish mind) was to say admiringly that he was a genius, that he was analytical and conceptual and an original thinker. To say that someone had a goyishe kopf was to say that he was dull-witted, conformist and slow” (p. 2).Sarah Schulman, of Queer Internationalhttp://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/israelpalestine-and-the-queer-international-a-book-review-by.html

“What makes Jews so smart?”To start with writing such a question which is loaded with presumptuous claims, arrogance and falsification is a form of hasbara and perception management to give the impression that “Jews are smarter” as a matter of fact! all they need to know is why, goodness me, the arrogance!

“Of course, like many Jews, I do think of myself in biological terms, despite how convenient that is for anti-Semitism. There is after all, a genetic component, since Jewish Identityfrom the Jewish point of view is biologically essentialist, dependent on having a Jewish mother” (p. 10).Sarah Schulman, of Queer Internationalhttp://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/israelpalestine-and-the-queer-international-a-book-review-by.html
