When in Doubt...Blame a Jew!: A Personal and People's Memoir of Anti-Semitism

AuthorHouse, 8 Μαρ 2004 - 384 σελίδες

An associate editor at Jeremy Tarcher, a division of Penguin Putnam, Inc., wrote this: When In Doubt--Blame A Jew! Is a tremendous piece of work intelligent, engaging, and personal. What makes this book unique is that it comprises a mlange of historic fact interspersed with endemic Jewish humor. It is the authors hope that it will provide factual information to counteract myriad myths, distortions, and false perceptions about who the Jews are, and their place in the world.

Starting with Mary, and why she had to be a virgin (based on the ancient Jewish custom of banishing women to the hills during their menstrual cycle); through the Blood Libel and other unfounded accusations: to Henry Fords fatherhood of the Tin Lizzie and worldwide hate; to famous Jews, followed by famous Jew-haters. There are also light moments such as: The Joke Is On Us, Jewish Alphabet Soup, and Prophecy. The book applauds the Righteous Gentiles of World War II; acknowledges the revisionists; and steps into the Palestinian0Israeli crisis, offering a solution.

With only 14 million extant today, the book ends with a question A World Without Jews, What Would It Be Like?

Arnold Abbott has been described as a realistic idealist, an eclectic iconoclast, and a rebel with many causes. Published at age 9, when he took umbrage at Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay On Self Reliance, he wrote a poetic reply titled: “Yes Ralph, These Are Your Poor!”

A proud liberal, he fought fiercely in the Civil Rights movement of the 60’s including going to Jackson, Mississippi to help register Negroes to vote. A Pennsylvania delegate to the 1964 Democratic National Convention, he gained notoriety, nationally covered, sitting with the Mississippi Freedom Delegation to protest the injustice of bypassing them in favor of an unelected all-white group.

Today, he works to better the lives of the homeless, through teaching culinary skills.
