It's Not "Chinese" to The Chinese, or "Greek" to the Greeks

It's perfectly clear to me why China is the perfect place for the hasbara, information campaign Dry Bones is involved with.

Israel’s enemies try to erase the pre-1948 history of the Jews in the Land of Israel. But China has not yet been infected with this denial of Jewish History.

We propose to inoculate the 1.3 billion Chinese against this modern libel with exciting, popular, online, and free to download apps and eBooks …in a form and with content that will appeal to both the Chinese establishment and Chinese university students alike.

Yup! A unique project to bring China and the Jews closer together through educational, digital, Chinese-language, graphic works written and drawn by award-winning Dry Bones cartoonist, scholar, and political analyst Yaakov Kirschen (me)
There aren't too many peoples, cultures, societies that have existed for thousands of years.  There are the Jews and there are the Chinese and probably a couple of others.  But that's it!  Other countries, peoples, cultures, religions, etc are just in their infancy in comparison.  And just like babies don't comprehend things the way adults do, the rest of the world can't get it into their heads that we're not the same.

Jewish History, well-documented in writing and science, archeology, is thousands of years old.  This is beyond the comprehension of younger nations. Just like no matter how clever my grandchildren are, I wouldn't dare say that they can read and write on the level of an adult.

Even the European countries, which are much older than the American ones, haven't reached their adolescence compared to the Jewish Nation.

The Jewish religion, Judaism, predates Christianity and Islam.  Both of those tried to replace us, aka identity theft.  They may have more believers, but we're still alive and kicking.   And unlike any other religion, we're also a People and Nation.

This may not make much sense to others, just like I don't understand Chinese and Greek, but it's the truth.  There is one Jewish People/nation/religion and we're the only ones who have a right to our Land and History.  I wish Ya'akov Kirschen aka Dry Bones a lot of luck on his project.
