David Mamet Quote

A few weeks ago, David Mamet was interviewed by the NYTimes Magazine. It seems, in his old age, he is identifying with his people more.

This part is interesting:  

NYT: Sometimes in the book I thought you were just trying to anger some of your liberal friends, like when you wrote the West sees the Middle East conflict as “entertainment.”
 
Mamet: No, I think that it’s true. There has always been a different standard for the Jews. We’re like “honorary Aryans,” as Hitler said of the Japanese. That means that we’re human beings only when it suits the world to treat us as human beings. There’s a pretty good book on the subject — the Torah.
