"The Kagan appointment means that we have entered a period in which Jews are equal members, if not actually predominant members, of the American Establishment... We're the new WASPs." Phillip Weiss continues, "No longer can Jews tell themselves, as my parents told me, that we are outsiders. We're principals in American society. We cannot claim the traditional privileges of a minority, to look out for one another. We have great responsibility for the whole society."
