well pretty often
On the lighter side: So, I did my perpetually late brother a favor and drove like a madwoman to try to help him catch a train. Naturally he got to the platform in just enough time to have the automatic doors slide shut right in his face. He storms back to the car muttering in his best tongue-in-cheek yiddish accent, "Mamesh an AntiSemit!" This is obviousl;y a "Woody." But on the darker side, also known as reality, this so-called pranoia is, as they say in Brooklyn, "Not for nothin." HOw many thousands of years has it been now? Of betrayal and persecution by our so-called neighbors? And to remind you , these earstwhile friendly neighbors- always from cultures considered advanced in societal norms, civility and culture no matter what the actual year was - had nothing but goodwill in mind...but this included before, during and also after their attitude would change and the cruelty would set in. THis is sadly what our Galus minds have been conditioned to understand and expect from our host cultures. While for certain there are so many heroes and true friends that pull through for us from the gentile world, individually and nationally, the principle stated by Shlomo Hamelech (King Solomon) remains too true:"There is nothing new under the sun." History repeats itself. Therefore, the dictum from the Tlmud: "Kabdeihu Vechashdeihu" (Respect him but suspect him") remains good advice.

Suspicious no, create opportunities
While I do list AH as one of my all time favorite moves, in your home neighborhood...create opportunities to help others learn about you, your beliefs, etc. Suspicion suggests threat. Openness creates opportunities.
