Gary Rosenblatt on Sidney Zion's aversion to the hand-wringery of American Jews:

"They're so shreklich, so afraid," he told me. "That fear in them is always there. Always. It's terrible. They worry about anti-Semitism. They worry about what the goyim will think of them. Maybe Jews really believe they're not as good as the next guy. But I sure as hell don't feel that way. Jews shouldn't be scared anymore. Never scared. They should be mad."
