Dear Mrs. Kagan

I have just heard your answers to the confirmation Committee where you used your Jewishness as an explanation of your deep feelings towards Israel and also your dining in Chinese restaurant during Christmas. You referred to that as something obvious for a Jewish person. I would like to state that:

1. Not all Jews by origin have great feelings towards Israel. Some of us don't care. Some of us really do not like it. Some like it but surely they have much deeper feelings towards USA. In fact, if you want to be a judge in the US you better have proper feelings towards the US first.

2. Not all Jews spend Christmas in Chinese restaurant. Many of us are atheists and just... have a Christmas tree. Many of us are Christians. Jewishness is just an origin, you know. Many of us are Moslems too as a matter of fact.

3. It would be good for all of us, Mrs. Kagan if you drop that Jewish issue and concentrate on the simple thing that you as many other SCOTUS people had never tried a criminal case. You are as unqualified as Roberts or Alito or Sotomayor- you all are hopeless and I would really prefer to see you all in Chinese restaurant. As waiters ( no offense to the real waiters, obviously).

Take it from the Jew.
