Assimilated Jews then and now

Naomi Ragen's email today offers this Food for Thought:

"In 1940, we knew who we were, we knew who the enemy was, we knew the dangers and the issues.. It is different today. We don't know who we are. We don't know the issues, and we still do not understand the nature of the enemy."
Bernard Lewis

I strongly disagree. The assimilated German and European Jews forgot who they were so God sent Hitler to forcibly remind them and Jabotinsky to warn them, exposed the American Jewish establishment as cowards and appeasers, punished the hypocrisyof the religious ghetto Jews who failed to follow the secular Zionists to the Promised Land of Israel (seeing it wasn't necessary for a messiah to do for us what we could do for ourselves), preferring a self-imposed exile rather than return and help hasten the process of redemption they prayed for but failed to act upon... I see nothing new under the sun.
