Balance of awe

One of my extended family (over dinner): We (Israel) should create a balance of awe with them (the Palestinians in Gaza). For every rocket they shoot at Israel we should kill 100 of them

One of my extended family (they are all catholic) over Christmas lunch in Bassano del Grappa, Italy): «you, Livio, are less Italian than we are, because your mother belongs to a different race» [my mother was a jew from East Prussia, my father was Italian catholic, I have no religion).

Note that there is a joke in Italy: "every family has its own cross" [in the sense of 'problem', pain]

my identity: Livio Sirovich (Trieste, Italy)
