Unlike the assimilated, self-doubting, young American leftist Jews who just can't identify with Israel, we bring you Marilyn Monroe as an example of the righteous convert, someone who wasn't afraid to stand by her people. After all, as Marilyn told Susan Strasberg: "I can identify with the Jews. Everybody's always out to get them no matter what they do, like me."
Why is everybody always out to get Israel, Marilyn, and Charlie Brown? Just because everyone's always picking on us doesn't make us wrong.
