I have a theory, it is 100% conjectural though; and a after thought of sorts.
I never met her in person, as well.
Perhaps, it has to do with socialism. Maybe, they have some socialists, or communists belief cultural belief systems, and it is the way they communicate, within their tribe, as a atheistic socialist Jewish world of sorts.
I’m not a socialist or a communist, or a atheistic. My father was a Jewish agnostic or atheistic, who had ancestors from the same area of Russia, as those in the Russian community I was in while in Israel. I. for a time lived in that community while in Israel.
I lived in a Russian Jewish house of a atheistic Russian Jewish, culture, with other Russian Jews… but I don’t know if they were atheistic too.
I seen the same arrogance, even among themselves when they would talk to each other. One time, they were drink and directed the arrogance at me, but I think it was not a genuine arrogance just a cultural thing.
It would be interesting to know if any of the writers here have a drinking problem.
They, for example, while in public would speak, Hebrew, but when they returned home…. I was living in their home… they spoke Russian.
So, in many ways I felt like I was living in a Russian world community within Israel. When, they got angry it was the same arrogance as a husband, and wife in a bitter fight, that could be heard for three blocks away. In a way, I would after time find it all to be humorous… the way they would fight day in and day out screaming at each other at the top of their lungs, in Russian, completely oblivious that all their neighbors could hear them.
