More on the Company Obama Keeps: Anti-Semitic Hatred From Key Obama Supporter Shocks Naive Jewish Liberal Donor

By Debbie Schlussel
Many people have sent me this letter, below, and it now appears on many sites. It is an important read to remind people that anti-Semitism is all over, and that far too many key Barack Hussein Obama supporters openly hate Jews, and want you to know it. And that Obama is far too lax in looking the other way.
But the letter is also confirmation of another thing I and many of my readers and friends have known all of our lives: Foolish Jewish liberals continue to throw money at our enemies, and then they are shocked–shocked!–that those enemies tell them, “Hey, we hate Jews.” Hello . . .?


Carly Simon Look-Alike/Uber-Naive Jewish Liberal Daphna Ziman Shocked

About Eric Lee’s Anti-Semitism

While I live and grew up in a Black city, in a Black neighborhood, and graduated from a Black high school; And while I know that there are many philo-Semitic Black Americans (we have many such readers on this site and I have many such friends with whom I grew up and whom I’ve known most of my life), the fact is that the Black community has far too much tolerance for anti-Semitism. And it’s not just Farrakhan, Jackson, Sharpton, and Wright–though their popularity in Black America is symbolic, as their anti-Semitism is never rejected by the collective Black community.
In fact, regardless of the history of Jews going out of their way for Blacks and Black civil rights–several literally gave their lives and were shot as they marched for Blacks–and helped found the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Blacks comprise the only ethnic group in America (Muslims are not an ethnic group) where anti-Semitism remains high. They are also the only ethnic group in America–in poll after poll–where anti-Semitism goes up as socio-economic status (earnings, education, etc.) goes up. I have a tremendous love for Black Americans–who helped build this country–and I deplore racism. But I deplore all forms of racism, including Black-on-White racism, and I do not love the collective, tolerated hatred of Jews that is far too rampant in Black America.
That toleration and embrace of anti-Semitism is not new. That’s why, as I read this letter by Daphna Ziman–and as I watch plenty of naive, guilt-ridden Jews embrace Barack Obama despite his close ties to Wright and Farrakhan–I believe that they get what they deserve. Ms. Ziman had no business giving money to this group in the first place. She should have known this was their sentiment. It only reminds me of philantropist Mort Zuckerman buying and donating greenhouses in Gaza for HAMASniks and not easily predicting the greenhouses’ quick destruction and non-appreciation for the Jewish favor in 2005.
So, here is the letter by this very naive Jewish philanthropist Daphna Ziman, who now is shocked–shocked!–by the anti-Semitism towards her, a Jew, despite her donation to those she should have known–from a litany of media reports throughout her life about “Hymietown” and “Zionist interlopers” and “gutter religion” comments–do not wish her well:

by Daphna Ziman
April 8, 2008
I have to tell you of an experience I had last night that was so anti Semitic and frightening:
Last night I was honored by Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, for my work with Children Uniting nations with African American children who are living out of home care. I have dedicated my life to saving these children from abuse, neglect and a life of crime. We created ‘adoption day’ and “Day of the child” determined to recruit caring adults to be mentors and life savers for our at risk children in the inner cities.
The mayor was present and City council member Bernard parks, Assemblyman Mike Davis, Senator Mark Ridely Thomas etc. I was introduced as a children advocate and a leader in the Jewish community. I began my speech by talking about how I woke up in the morning and listened to Hillary Clinton’s speech, in the spirit of Dr. King from Memphis that moved me so deeply. I expressed to the crowd how grateful I was to listen to Sen. McCain apologize to the community for mistakes he has made in the past. I acknowledged Sen. Obama’s speech from the campaign trail about Dr. King’s mentorship.
After I spoke and thanked the fraternity and their members, Rev. Eric Lee, pres. and CEO of Southern Christian Leadership Conference of greater Los Angeles, was introduced as the key note speaker.
He began his speech by thanking Jesus for Obama, who is going to be the leader of the world. He continued by referring to other leaders Like Dr. King, being that this was the moment of celebrating Dr. King’s spirit on the anniversary of his death, and Malcolm X.
It was right after the mention of Malcolm X that he looked right at me and started talking about the African American children who are suffering because of the JEWS that have featured them as rapists and murderers. He spoke of a Jewish Rabbi, and then corrected himself to say “What other kind of Rabbis are there, but JEWS”. He told how this Rabbi came to him to say that he would like to bring the AA community and the Jewish community together. ” NO, NO, NO,!!!!” he shouted into the crowd, we are not going to come together. “The Jews have made money on us in the music business and we are the entertainers, and they are economically enslaving us.”
He continued as to how now the salvation has come and the gates have open for African Americans to come together behind Barack Obama, because now is the time to show them.(meaning the Jews).

He continued to speak about ‘ White supremacy’ vs the talents and visionaries in the core of African Americans. He demeaned being given freedom, by saying “To what?” to a country that kills women and children.
I could no longer be polite and sit in front of the crowd, so I walked out.
Members of the fraternity ran after me as did my staff, I was not able to contain my tears and I cried.
I cried for me and my family, who have tried so hard to help the African American community, because we adopted children from the same realities and wanted to give back to other children and people. We have been completely color blind, for us it was only helping those children in need. I cried for our beloved country and the division that Barack Obama has caused with his Rev. Wright opening the gates to ‘hate’ against the Jews and whites. I grew up so looking at America as the land of Freedom. I was honored to receive my citizenship accompanied by members of the Kennedy family. Now, I’m afraid for Israel because Barack sat there for 20 years listening and not standing up for what’s right, why would he standup for Israel?
I cried for the Jewish community who are so blind that they can’t see that there’s a movement here that will destroy us. I cried because for the first time in my life I was afraid of the future.
I cried for our world that is moving backwards and not forward. Everyday, I see children so lost, and so deserving of hope and love. I look into their eyes, knowing that it is their lives that are in our hands.
I’m crying now, so I’m going to stop writing because it is so painful. I just had to share this experience with you.

Well, I’m glad Ms. Ziman is crying now. But what took her so long? Unlike Ms. Ziman, I don’t cry at this old hat “news” that for her is a sudden, shocking revelation. I cry that there are so many extremely naive Jewish liberals like her, who look the other way at the wholesale anti-Semitism of the Black community. And constantly throw money at–and enable–them.
And continue to refuse to wake up. Why the heck was she giving them a dime in the first place?
And that’s not all to which she’s giving her dimes. Ms. Ziman claims she’s worried about Israel and anti-Semitism. Yet, she continues to give oodles of money to the anti-Israel UNICEF and to donate to the Muslim “refugees” of Kosovo, who are rife with anti-Semitism. (Check out this page detailing where her money goes.) She’s clearly quite ignorant, but for her April 8th “epiphany.”
She is the enabler of the kind of hatred which she now decries, and she seriously needs to look in the mirror.
We are going through a modern-day Dreyfus Trial all over the world. But people like Daphna Ziman are clueless and won’t face the fact that court is in session.

The Jewish liberals just won’t learn; first the anti-Semitism was directed against Jewish merchants who had stores in the black ghettoes; liberals excused anti-Semitism by saying that the blacks were just resentful against Jews who were trying to exploit them economically. Then there was anti-Semitism against Jewish teachers, e.g. Ocean-Hill Brownsville, since these teachers did not ‘respect’ blacks. Since most young Jewish college graduates now have enough awareness not to teach in black communities (if they teach at all), now I guess it is Jews in the music business who are supposedly exploiting blacks. Just like in European history; even when the Jews are not there, they will remain as the target of anti-Semitism in one way or another. And then these liberals attack those people like Pastor Hagee who are going out of their way to support Israel and the Jewish people. I’ve given up trying to understand it.

c f on April 10, 2008 at 3:55 pm

Sorry to say but it is built into the genes of the Jewish people, in general, to be liberal AND trusting. A little more suspicion regarding the popular secular culture of Germany and Europe in the 1930s might have resulted in fewer Holocaust deaths. Black Americans are their own worst enemy. They should stop foaming at the mouth about “jews” and start a serious self-evaluation. News flash race demogogues: the Latinos won’t put up with this crap. And they think they have problems now…. When there are no Jews or whites to hate, who will they choose to vent on?

J-Lin on April 10, 2008 at 4:34 pm

At least her opinion changed. Some morons let the venom slide on by with out being offended and make excuses for the venom.

samurai on April 10, 2008 at 5:06 pm

Debbie; I know your heart’s in the right place but your brain isn’t keeping company with it. I have spent the past twenty or more years working in environments with a huge portion of blacks. I had two stints where I was the only white in the place.
So here’s the deal. Blacks are the most racist and bigoted part of our society and culture. They hate Jews and you think it stops there, you only feel sorry for yourselves. They hate Asians more than they hate Jews. They may hate Mexicans more than they hate white people. A person who hates does not stop at the first truck stop and go to sleep. Hate may be the only thing that really lasts.
It’s no accident that Wright speaks in a church where his words stay inside. There are black preachers all over this county that are far worse than he. Black “religion” is racist religion in far too many churches.
So it’s the poor Jews who are victims? Wake up Debbie, it’s everybody other than Blacks who are hated. And I think hate usually indicates that the hater hates himself worse than anyone.
BTW, Black males hate women more than anything you can imagine. The men are sexist to an extreme that has never existed anywhere else. Casual rape is the name of the game. They routinely corner girls and women and literally force themselves upon them….and Black women take it. White girls take it too.
Understand it? They hate because it has approval among their peers as white racism had approval among whites a century ago. Until we all stand up and lock them out, this is going to get worse.

Howard on April 10, 2008 at 5:38 pm

Racism and anti-Semitism is a HUGE PROBLEM in the black community.

Freudianslippers on April 10, 2008 at 6:44 pm

Sad to say, much of what Howard relates is true–certain exceptions notwithstanding.

Red Ryder on April 10, 2008 at 7:03 pm

I might have sympathy for a self-hating Jew pre-Holocaust. Post-Holocaust, no. This woman is a stupid idiot. And that is not an ad hominem–it’s simply the truth. Now the hand wringing will begin. Why do they hate us? Can we have a dialogue? Barf.
There’s nothing more disgusting than a Jew groveling to anti-Semitic Blacks and Arabs/Muslims.

So well said Debbie. Like in proverbs–a word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. You are spot on sister!

BB on April 10, 2008 at 11:54 pm

It sounds scary at first glance but Howard has a point or 5. I’ve worked in the public sector for 29 years and agree with most of it totally. It is ok for them to be horribly racist but say nappy and you should be cast out.

samurai on April 11, 2008 at 12:30 am

There’s one thing here that sticks out. Jews have got to get tougher with their haters. Israel is hated and maligned because Jews, for the first time in 3000 years, decided to take a stand and fight for their right to exist. Elsewhere, Jews should be doing the same…constantly standing up to and exposing hate mongers like the above mentioned characters like Lee in the black community. They should be defied and humiliated privately and publicly for their views and every opportunity should be taken to throw light on Jew hatred in the media, politics and the churches. Antisemitism is relentless and so should be the just indignant response to it. These black leaders constantly betray their hero Martin Luther King, who said that anti Zionism and hatred of Israel was nothing else but antsemitism. They do not deserve to be associated with him just because of the colour of their skin.

johndoe on April 11, 2008 at 1:31 am

I think this idiocy is mainstream in Black America and may be the cause of the epidemic of Black hate crimes through out America.

Pat on April 11, 2008 at 3:38 am

I find it amusing that it is the inner city black community that harbors all this hate and disillusionment. Are these not the people who have been the benificiary or the Liberal “Welfare” programs? This is the Demarxacrat party at is finest and this is what it breeds. With all due respect to the Jewish community what I find the scariest in her letter is when Rev Lee thanked Jesus for Obama who is ” Going to LEAD THE WORLD ” That is what should really scare everyone. Picture the world under his ideas… World Wide Welfare, entire nations looking like inner city Chicago with the attitude to match.

mfee01 on April 11, 2008 at 6:44 am

I purposely changed political parties to vote against Obama in my state’s primary for this very reason. Obama is like like company he keeps. His disavowal of the racist comments of his pastor is a ruse to get elected. Most blacks are haters and blame everyone else for the state of their community. Yet we never see black leaders railing against black on black crime, children being shot in gang crossfire, or drug dealing and related murders and crime in the inner city. Somehow it always get blamed on others. I for one am tired of throwing my tax dollars at problems I now consider theirs to deal with. It’s about changing the mentality and no amount of money can do that, especially with the race pimp leaders who continue to blame everyone else for their woes. I have gone from ultra-liberal quasi-communist in my college years to how I feel now simply because of the hypocrisy I have seen flourish in the black community. I’m sick and tired of being blamed for something that I had nothing to do with.

Makk on April 11, 2008 at 8:09 am

Carly Simon look-alike? More like the Joker in drag!

1shot1kill on April 11, 2008 at 8:45 am

This morning i regurgitated an old Asian stereotype—the reason they can’t drive is because their eyes are slanted and they can’t see straight—and my girlfriend looked at me like i was some kind of racist klansman…but later as we drove by a Hebrew elementary school she damn near SPAT “That’s why traffic’s moving so slowly, because of that JEW school!”
Blacks don’t even realise their anti-Semitism…and Google just enforces it—google Israel and you have to go pass about five pages of pro-Palestinian propaganda before you hit anything even remotely connected to Israel.
My first book addressed the problem of Blacks being alienated from their Jewish history…YES, Jews HAVE played a major role in helping uplift the Black race—more so than any other whitey…and “we” seem to have forgotten that!!!
My second book, which is now being shopped around, continues with the same liet motif…and even shows that Jeremiah Wright is not unique as a preacher…but everyone seems to be forgetting the unwritten commandment that Dostoevsky revealed over 100 years ago—Love thy neighbours but HATE the Jews.
Google and most of Amerikkka seems to have mastered THAT commandment.

EminemsRevenge on April 11, 2008 at 9:07 am

Right on Debbie!
But even more right on is the analysis of Howard. The Jews have always been there to help any ethnic group. They have been seemingly the opportunists when it came to financing and promoting Blacks in the Music and Apparel Industries. It was the Jew who made the Film industry happen! Historical fact! Old clothing merchants from New York who saw the potential of film and invested heavily into it.
Jews have always found a way to help a new talent in any industry and turn it into a thriving business. Yes, for profit! BUT…. How about the people who benefited from it who are not Jewish? Because of their Jewish financial and marketing leadership, you now have Multi-millionaires like Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Sean Combs etc. etc. The apparel industry is FULL of Black successful people because the Jewish business community supported them. How quickly these ignorant ìBlack Leadersî, a term loosely given to bigoted, loud mouth, self centered, hatred filled people, seem to forget where the money comes from that helped their causes and developed their talent and made many of their own race wealthy. Do you think it was all the Black community that made Oprah so rich? Think again!
Like any entrepreneur in the business world the Jews are rewarded for their foresight and persistence in financing and creating wealth for many others. Tremendous wealth that exceeds overall that of the Jews themselves. Oprah is a PRIME example.
Many actors, producers, writers, designers, etc know that in the film industry the Jew is the one group they have had to deal with and work with in order for them to succeed. But these many talented people have also become millionaires because of it. The difference is that these people APPRECIATE IT! Unlike the ignorant Black leaders who perceive the Jew as taking advantage of them instead of helping them.
We certainly donít need an ignorant Black leader in the White House. I am now extremely mad at Colin Powell for his refusal to run for President as I am Condoleeza Rice for turning down the Vice President ticket with McCain. These are the Black leaders we need to promote, not some slick talking, half Muslim, half Black, politician.
A final note to this blog is the fact that these bigoted Black leaders are hurting their own racesí cause. There are millions of fine outstanding Blacks in the country who are civic leaders, businessmen, educators and Christian preachers who should NOT be put into this category of ìBlack Hatredî that plagues the African-American race.
I applaud those that openly stand against this movement. They recognize that it is not about ALL Black African-Americans but moreover about a Black African-American sub-culture that tries to pull in the rest of them. They wonít fall for such negative, demeaning and fruitless politics. Unfortunately, many are currently being mesmerized by this Black Hitler and the Black hatred leaders who support him.

LAMadDog on April 11, 2008 at 9:53 am

Well this will make you want to vomit!
The road to the White House evidentially passes through Tel Aviv, at least according to Senator Barack Obama. The Democratic presidential hopeful is vigorously wooing the State of Israel in an effort to win the hearts of Jewish voters in the United States.
Read the full aritcle, http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3530458,00.html
The blind ignorance of the Jewish community are willfully helping to put a man who will see to their distruction into office.

wolf2012 on April 11, 2008 at 12:09 pm

Obama is a divider.He has polorized the country.
If he wants to bring the races together,he can start in his own church.
Maybe he can change the hate and anti white, anti American black theology there.
Next he can clean up the rest of the black churches.
Then he can come back in 10 or 15 years and have a record that we can look at and decide on for president.
Right now Obama is plenty scarry.

Rick on April 11, 2008 at 4:33 pm

“The blind ignorance of the Jewish community are willfully helping to put a man who will see to their distruction into office.”
Yikes! Obama’s out to destruct the Jewish community now! How do you suppose he’ll do it, Wolf?

Audacious on April 11, 2008 at 4:36 pm

Gee, it’s like the black humor that my husband and I share about all of the “machers” and big shots, doing the job of the enemy. “For your own good”, they tell us as they help us into the boxcars and padlock the doors, ” for your safety”, they intone with a self dprecating smile.
But I agree with Howard.It isn’t just about “useful idiots” or those who are corrupted and cowardly. This is also about a culture that hates. We Jews are just the canary sent into the mineshaft.

jewishpatriot on April 11, 2008 at 5:41 pm

One of these days, I hope you’ll condense some of the better notes in this blog column into a nice essay. There are a lot of excellent points.
Now that I’ve said that, let me offer a little critique:
1. Hispanics are also quite anti-Semitic. This is especially true of recent immigrants. The subsequent generations of Hispanic immigrants tend to assimilate and lose their anti-Semitic attitudes.
2. I know several Bosnians who are not anti-Semitic. I fully understand that those Bosnians going to the Mosque are getting the “Saudi treatment” and becoming radicalized. That’s a problem and I’m glad you’re calling it out. However, there are a lot of Bosnians who are hard-working American immigrants and LIKE Jews because they understand us. Time doesn’t allow me to elaborate on what I mean by “understand us”, but I’d like to think that you know what I’m talking about.
There are a lot of good Bosnian-Americans here in Michigan who have not been radicalized by the Wahabbi-funded Mosques. While I understand what you’re talking about, I hope that you will take just a little time to recognize that there are Bosnian-Americans who reject anti-Semtiism and are greatful for things which Jews in America and Israel did to help them.

“So here’s the deal. Blacks are the most racist and bigoted part of our society and culture. They hate Jews and you think it stops there, you only feel sorry for yourselves. They hate Asians more than they hate Jews. They may hate Mexicans more than they hate white people. A person who hates does not stop at the first truck stop and go to sleep. Hate may be the only thing that really lasts.”
I live in a suburb of Cleveland. The city of Cleveland is basically Africa. Your statements about the endemic racism among blacks is as true as it gets. You forgot one thing, though. Blacks are virulently bigoted and hateful against black skinned immigrants from Africa and the West Indies, who outperform them based on the fact they don’t have the Great Society inspired collective victimhood mentality. If you notice many of the successful blacks in this country, many are immigrants or first generation (i.e. Colin Powell – his parents were from Jamaica).

JasonBourne81 on April 12, 2008 at 2:18 pm

Debbie, back in the mid 1990’s I worked as a volunteer with a private, Church lead social services agency.
The agency took on the job of assisting, first, the Bosnian Muslims coming to our town, from Germany where they originally headed during the civil war in Yugoslavia.
I was assigned to help three related families who had arrived together. All sixteen of them. From the Grandpa to the smallest child.
Something about them shocked me to me to my core!! The first thing the main “man” of the family wanted to know about me, WAS MY RELIGION. He was not the oldest man but was the one who appeared to be the best educated. He said he owned a business before the war and several cars. I guess car ownership is a big deal there too.
I had just met them all as they came from the airport to their new, fully furnished apartments. Completely filled, right down to the dishes for the kitchens and hand soap and toilet paper in the bathrooms. Their new digs were financed by my agency, me and other donors, and they wanted to know, WHAT RELIGION WAS I???
Was I a “JUDEN” ??? He actually used a word that sounded like that. And he made a gesture toward his own nose, you know like something BIG!! Their English was poor but they KNEW how to ask about religion!!
Oh and they knew how to ask me to give them MONEY for their cigarettes. See the card given by the “food Stamps” folks cannot be used for cigs!! They knew that right away. Before they came to America they were given lectures in their own langauge about what it would be like in America and what kinds of benefits they could expect. Like a year of food stamps, free medical care at the public hospitals and so forth. They all said Germany was better but the German government had to send them away.
Later we found out that each adult family member was given alot of money to assist them in leaving Germany.
I have NEVER since met a more anti-semitic and self serving group of refugees.
These Bosnian Muslims actually bragged to me, AFTER I told them I was a BAPTIST CHRISTIAN, that their fore-fathers assisted the NAZIS during WWII in trying to make Bosnia JEW-FREE!! One old guy said his Father was Nazi SS!!! Hey, they thought because I was helping Muslims that I was a JEW hater like them.
WRONG!! I am not a hater but I am MUCH wiser now when it comes to Bosnian Muslims. I never went back to see those folks again. I told my agency friends about the comments and I said “Get back to me, when you have some non-Muslims refugees”.
My Step-Dad was Jewish, a Holocaust surviver and a great and generous guy who taught me that charity was a worthy endeavor and one that could help to make you a better human and the world a better place . I miss him everyday since he passed away in 2000.
Well I read some poster here saying Bosnian Muslims are NOT Jew Haters. I beg to differ. They are some and I had the misfortune of crossing their paths.
The Spring after 9/11, my husband and I went to a wedding and a reception at a local Church for a young lady whose mother I had known for years while volunteering with another group.
And who do I see at that reception, NOT at the wedding though ??
The Bosnian man, who asked if I was a Jew and his wife!!
And guess where they came, right away, to sit at the reception? Right across the table from my husband and I. Oh, I was “thrilled”. But it was a wonderful event for my friend’s daughter. So PEACE should reign!!
It seems that the young Bride had invited her co-workers and their spouses. Since it was a small office there were about 20 of them. The Bosnian woman was a clerk of some kind.
Wel the Bosnians acted glad to see me, But then, as IF it was required, the man came rushing around to our side of the table and leaned in between my husband and I and said softly but intensely, “YOU know I am so sorry about 9/11. But it WAS NOT MUSLIMS who did that thing, it was JEWS. THEY WERE WARNED AND THEY STAYED HOME FROM THE BUILDING!!”
Oh no…self-control needed here by me and my hubby.
Since my husband has a brother-in-law and nephew who are Jews and a sister who converted at marriage. AND, he is a native New Yorker from the Bronx, whose own Roman Catholic Dad often attended Synagogue with his “best friend for life”, I consider his reponse to the Muslim idiot, to be VERY GALLANT.
My husband is so old school and would never want to cause a scene to “ruin” a blessed event like a wedding, even though he was so angry that he was shaking a little.
He told the man, very quietly to: “Please go sit down. You are very, very wrong. This conversation is over.”
We then moved IMMEDIATELY to another table and met up with other friends.
Yes, there may be other Bosnian Muslims who are NOT bigots, but I doubt it seriously.

sewsalot on April 13, 2008 at 3:34 pm

You’re right, Debbie. I was too charitable. I think you’re right on about being “enablers.”
I guess I missed that because I have focused too much on all the other symptoms of co-dependence we are unfortunately seeing.

Ben-Yehudah on April 13, 2008 at 5:10 pm

That’s the problem with nowadays Jews, you are too
easy on your enemies.
Remember when the Muslim Brothers staged
an uprising in Hama, Syria?
A week later, Rifaat al Assad bragged of killing 80,000 of the sewer rats…then, magic,
no problems from the Sewer Rat Brotherhood!!!
When you are dealing with a bunch of cannibals
ready to sacrifice their own children at the
drop of a hat, Israel surrender policy is
a guarantee of doom…
I wish Israel the best, but with the present spineless leadership, the future is very bleak
not only for Jews, but for all civilization!!!

Ming the Merciless on April 14, 2008 at 12:12 am

It is difficult to know if you should take these people serious or not; after all, Reverend Wright lives in an all white gated community – no Brothers anywhere nearby.

Burt on April 14, 2008 at 12:35 pm

The most disturbing part of this story is the fact that Ms. Ziman evidently cried and ran away. This is never an appropriate response to fascism and bigotry. She (and other right minded individuals) should have stood up and taken the microphone away from the hater.
Having said that, it is likely that her response was born out of a Jimmy Carter-like naivete. (you mean the Soviet Union is evil enough to invade Afghanastan???..I didn’t know that!)
