Hate And War

From Donald Clarke's review of the movie Defiance in today's Irish Times:

'Still, given recent events in Gaza, it's hard not to wince at the scene in which a cowed peasant, surprised by the Bielskis' bellicosity, declares: "Jews do not fight." There's one myth that no longer requires deflation.'

Jesus - there's so much wrong with that you don't know where to begin. Is it beyond the gumption of people like Clarke to realise that it's precisely because of what happened those 'cowed peasants', that would not fight then, that Jews now fight so hard against those that hate them, those who would annihilate them given the chance?
