"Measuring Distance in Kilograms"
This is from Those Who Forget the Past: The Question of Anti-Semitism quoting Ali Salem, an Egyptian playwright, on hatred:
It's very difficult to understand the machinery of hatred, because you wind up resorting to logic, but trying to understand this with logic is like measuring distance in kilograms.I highly recommend this book, an anthology of essays about contemporary anti-Semitism. The next time you're in a bookstore, get a cup of coffee and just read the introduction. It's easily worth a twenty minutes of your time.
