    I wonder if the human race will ever evolve enough to make stories like this one seem quaint and archaic?

    "Shaken by his own discovery, Pawel said he spent weeks of cloistered and tortured reflection but was finally overcome by a strong desire to become Jewish, even Orthodox. He acknowledged that he was drawn to extremes. He said his transformation was arduous, akin to being reborn. He even forced himself to reread “Mein Kampf” but could not get to the end because he felt physically repulsed.
    “When I asked a rabbi, ‘Why do I feel this way?’ he replied, ‘The sleeping souls of your ancestors are calling out to you.’ ”
    At age 24, he was circumcised. Two years later, he decided to become an ultra-Orthodox Jew. He and his wife are raising their two children in a Jewish home.
    Pawel noted that he was still singled out by the same anti-Semites who once counted him among their ranks. “When younger people see me on the street with my top hat and side curls they sometimes laugh at me,” he said. “But it is the old ladies who are the meanest. Sometimes, they use the language I used when I was a skinhead and say, ‘Get out and go back to your country’ or ‘Jew go home!’ ”
    And now he is studying to become a shochet, a person charged with killing animals according to Jewish dietary laws. “I am good with knives,” he explained."


    It's good that he's no longer a Nazi skinhead but by joining a fundamentalist sect he shows that he's still an extremist. I think his conversion has less to do with religion than it does with his need to identify with groups on the fringes of society and to show himself to be apart from the mainstream.

    Countries like Denmark don't make it easier. I don't understand how come their politics haven't made more fuss internationally

    We believed that Poland should only be for Poles.

    And now he believes Israel is only for Jews.

    We should be impressed by this?
