Why I don't feel at home

This post at Davids Medienkritik, an absolutely fabulous blog, really underlines why I, as a European Jew, feel uncomfortable here.
It boggles the mind that so many Germans don't think that equating the IDF with the Nazis is beyond the pale, let alone subscribe to such a view. From personal experience I can say that I think the situation is not as extreme in Italy, where I live. However, I will soon be moving to Brussels (Belgium) and quite frankly I am somewhat scared. I think I will avoid letting people know that I am Jewish, and I resent being forced to do so to feel secure.
