Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Why don't they publish it?
Hmm... it seems there was made a study in Europe about Anti-semitism. Now some US politicians want this study to be published. Maybe it's because the French seem to have the highest numbers of it?
I find this disturbing for two reasons.
1 - I must admit, anti-semitism doesn't move me soo much, because I see it as a part of a bigger picture. It's the anti-foreigner-ism (I know, there is not such a word, don't panic), that scares me.
2 - Why do the French have such high numbers of anti-semitic incidents? Because they have a high Muslim percentage. And many Muslims are causing anti-smitic incidents, period.
Europe and the whole western world (including the US) should better work on general acceptance of differences, be it colour of skin, religion, sexual orientation or lifestyle, but instead of doing that they wonder how a bigot society causes such crimes and problems.
Anti semitic things draw more attention, because they're strictly religion-based, but is it a kind of better discrimination when I discriminate someone because of the colour of his skin than because of his religion? Sometimes people seem to think that. I don't.
