Re: Yiddish?

Yes. Associated with a tiny subset of Middle-European fundamentalist Jews of the kind who wear long black coats in places like Stamford Hill ( and a noble literary tradition that died with the Shoah). Not Israel. Racist because of this stereotype which was never relevant to either Israel or the wider Jewish population.

It's no different to assuming that all of New York's Irish-Americans speak Gaelic and carry a pig under their arm.
