Empathy vs Compassion

Having empathy or compassion for another human being is your ability to feel their emotions, their pain or struggle from their perspective.

Having compassion is when you feel what they feel & want to do something about it to help them.

Most of these words and phrases are going to sound ridiculous but...

"Annudda Shoah" – used to mock Jews who (supposedly) use every slight against them to express concern that another Shoah, or Holocaust, could be around the corner. Alt-right website The Right Stuff defines it as simply a “displeasing situation.” See Shoah
