Dear Mr. Finkelstein,
In preparation for my research on the subject of “self-hatred” I would like to interview you about this abnormal human phenomena.   For instance, Wikipedia defines self-hatred as “The term self-hatred can refer to either a strong dislike for oneself, one’s actions, or a strong dislike or hatred of one’s own race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, species or any other corporate group of which one may be a member. When used in the latter context it is generally defined as hatred of one’s identity based on the demographic in question, as well as a desire to distance oneself from this identity.” 

Also from Wikipedia: “Self-hatred, self-loathing, also sometimes autophobia refers to an extreme dislike of oneself, or being angry at oneself. The term is also used to designate a dislike or hatred of a group to which one belongs. For instance, “ethnic self-hatred” is the extreme dislike of one’s ethnic group. The term “self-hatred” is used infrequently by psychologists and psychiatrists, who would usually describe people who hate themselves as “persons with low self-esteem“. Self-hatred and shame are important factors in some or many mental disorders, especially disorders that involve a perceived defect of oneself (e.g. body dysmorphic disorder). Self-hatred is also a prime feature of many personality disorders.

You, a Jew and a son of Holocaust survivors, who hates so much his fellow Jews in Israel and would like to see the Arabs finish the job that the Nazis started and is cheered by Jew haters all around the world is the perfect person to shed light on my research.
Thank you for your answer.

I would love to participate.  I should alert you however that I also have homicidal tendencies towards imbecilic email correspondents.

Thank you, but it appears you are too sick for this. Joseph Goebbels is very proud of you.
