There have been a lot of comparisons between us and the Jews. There are, of course, the obvious points--a people persecuted; .a people misunderstood grossly; a people haunted by the specter of diaspora; a people upon whom genocide has been visited. There are other points, quite apparent too but not often mentioned- very hard-working people and a people deeply religious. I do not know which comes ӿrst, whether it is religion itself or the persecution that brings about the religion, but there are these similarities. We travel alot; so do the Jews; the Jews move around to places and assimilate quite a lot without themselves being assimilated. I think we are the same. And the ӿnal point is that the Jews crown all their efforts with success. Now, this applies equally to the Biafran. The Jews get persecuted as a result, basically out of jealousy. That again is true in Biafra.
