"Granted, it is very difficult to learn the forty centuries of history of a people such as the Jews; but one initial thing I do know is that certainly no other people in the whole world have complained so much about their fate, complained constantly, at their every step and every word, about their oppression, their suffering, their martyrdom. One would think that it is not they who rule in Europe, not they who at least control the stock exchanges there and, accordingly, the policy, the internal affairs, and the morality of the states."

—Dostoevsky, A Writer's Diary, pg. 904
