Group Description

Jewish-American Killer Girls

"While teaching English in Turkey, Baltzer first learned the extent of the conflict when she traveled to other countries in the Middle East. She said at first she was shocked and angered by propaganda from the displaced Palestinian families, but Baltzer decided to see for herself if the stories were true."

"The question of Jewish identity in art is often not a clear-cut one. Felstiner shelves O Taste and See, a book of poems by Denise Levertov, in the Jewish bookcase, he confided, even though he doubts his former colleague would approve. It is his "secret" way of answering the question, Is there really such a thing as American Jewish content in American poetry?"

"Madeleine Albright, John Kerry, Barry Goldwater, Wesley Clark, Casper Weinberger, William Cohen, and, apparently, George Allen. All prominent non-Jewish politicians with recent Jewish heritage. This makes me wonder about how many Americans there are who have at least one Jewish grandparent, but who aren't Jewish, and about how many of these Jewish parents or grandparents hid their origins from their families, as did Albright's parents, John Kerry's grandparents, and perhaps Allen's mom."
