    “And he lost so stand with Trump to defeat Hillary otherwise you are supporting her.”

    Many of us warned you that Trump could not beat Clinton in the general. You voted for him anyway just to spite the Republican party. Well, you got what you asked for. Now you need to convince people that voting for trump is worth their time. Romney lost even though Obama was the alternative. Just saying that Clinton will win if we don’t support trump isn’t going to win you the election. Oh sure you’ll get some of those who make sure to vote every election, but they won’t be enough. You need the people who are inclined to stay home, the ones for whom Washington is just some city miles away. Fear of Clinton will keep them from her camp. It won’t win them to yours.

    Jews don’t even permit autopsies on their deceased. Whenever a mass grave is disturbed, the remains need to be buried again immediately. I don’t see why your need for pictures is more important.
    Besides, if you don’t believe “stories” at all, how can you believe in anything? Let’s go back to my Lincoln example. How can you trust the story of the Lincoln assassination? After all, can you even be sure Lincoln ever existed? Oh sure there are plenty of records, but we only have people’s word that those records are genuine. Oh sure there’s artifacts and physical evidence, but again we have to trust the stories that were passed down conveying the origins of those items.
    You accept stories as true all the time. You are choosing to not believe these stories because they’re inconvenient to you for some reason.
    So let me ask you. Let’s start with the assumption that the holocaust did happen. Why is this fact si inconvenient to you? Why are you so adamant on this single issue when there are so many other historical events with less evidence that you accept blindly? How much difference does it make for you whether it happened or not?
    I can tell you right now that for me as a Jew the difference is minimal. It’s there obviously but at the end of the day it changes little. People still hate Jews and even many of those who don’t see us as misguided in our faith. I still believe in my faith regardless.

    Reasonable? What you ask is equivalent to me asking you to prove Lincoln was shot with a Derringer by exhuming his corpse, examining the damage to his skull, and comparing it to a simulated wound from the same gun. After all, I don’t recall ever seeing a picture of Lincoln after he was shot.

    You asked for photos of the inside of a collapsed tunnel and for photographers to disturb the graves of the dead. And why? What reason have you to doubt the testimony of those who survived?

    Besides, we both know that even if I gave you your pictures you’d still not be satisfied. If I showed you the tunnel, you’d either ask me to prove it was dug by Jews escaping or question how it survived so many years without collapsing. If I showed you a mass grave, you’d want proof they were Jews, want proof they were murdered, ask where the rest of the dead were, and want proof they weren’t dumped there after the fact.

    There’s a difference between asking questions to learn more details and asking questions to cast doubt on known facts. You aren’t interested in answers.

    Romney didn’t lose because people stayed home, he lost because he couldn’t get people to leave their homes long enough to cast a simple vote.

    It’s the candidates job to get people to come out. If trump can’t do that he’ll end up the same as Romney, a failed candidate.

    Been to Auschwitz and Majdanek. The former was depressing and horrifying. The latter disgusting beyond words.

    “Can we see some pictures of all these bones on location?”
    To see them, you’d have to dig them up. To digg them up you’d have to know where there’d been buried. And if you knew where they’re buried, you’d still need permission to disturb the burial site, which to Jews is considered a sacrilegious act, and would in Amy cade require the consent of both local government and relatives of the deceased. ALL OF THEM.
    As for the tunnel, why would you expect a tunnel dug with spoons with no internal supports to still be open. Even if them did manage to get some wood for it, exposure would have rotted it by now. The tunnel’s gone. I’d find it far stranger if there were pictures of the tunnel (as, I’m sure, would holocaust deniers).
    Asking for impossible evidence instead of dealing with the existing evidence is cowardly. I expected better from you.

    What’s surprising about this. Trump has made a living off of damaging economic policies. You can be sure he’d profit greatly under such policies, regardless of whether the rest of the country prospers.

    @father
    True enough. Strangely though, many of those groups get along with and learn from each other.

  • [4] June 29, 2016 at 10:22am

    You’re absolutely right. It is foolproof. Now, if only terrorists were fools.

    @4 truth
    Jesus’s description of the pharisees may seem innocent enough to Christians, but to Jews nothing could be worse. Of all the sects them in existence, it is the teachings of the Pharisees that are the basis for rabbinic Judaism today. You might as well call every orthodox rabbi a liar and a hypocrite.

    You say the new testament is written by Jews, and yet much of it openly contradicts the Jewish faith. Paul, who authored much of the collection, renounced all aspects of Jewish law that he found inconvenient. Most of the other books the authors are at best unknown or disputed.

    In any case, Jews authoring antisemitic lies is not such a rate thing among those who rejected Judaism. The most famous would be Karl Marx, who openly called for the elimination of Judaism, which he saw as the source of all things that communism was to do away with.

    It doesn’t matter of she personally refused him or not. We know he made the request. We know that request went through the state department. And we know that the request was never granted. That alone shows a lack of judgement and leadership to disqualify her from office.

    Saying they can’t survive outside of the womb is like saying a grown adult can’t survive underwater. Left alone in a hospitable environment, the fetus will grow into and adult given time. Put it in a inhospitable environment, and it dies.

    Similarly, if I put an adult in a room with cyanide gas, it’s my fault for putting him in there, not his fault for not bring able to survive under such circumstances.

    How’s this one?

    Having some aspects of modern law hardly excuses the proceedings. Using torture to induce a confession was considered just, and such forced confessions also frequently included the naming of others who had “collaborated”.

    Luther published a treatise (not sure if that’s the right word) titled “On the Jews and Their Lies”. The work could have easily served as the nazi handbook. And like I said, the ideas weren’t newly conceived by Luther. Hatred of Jews being encouraged by church leaders and prominent Christians goes back over 1500 years. Jews were frequently described as worshipers of Satan, as being demonic by nature, and being inherent liars. Where do you think the rumor of Jews having horns comes from?

    Some of these ideas go ask the way back to “new testament” itself, which on more than one occasion calls Jews hypocrites, liars, or worshipers of the devil.

    If that’s not the true church, then the true church is a highly recent development. For example, nearly every lie used by antisemites against Jews today was either inherited or at the very least based on something that was said by leaders of the church. Even Martin Luther, the great reformer, was a virulent hater of Jews who openly called for their annihilation.

    The ten commandments don’t appear in Genesis. Not once. The ten commandments appear once in Exodus and once in Deuteronomy.

    Well public money was used trying to influence Israeli elections to remove Netanyahu from power.

    @heisen

    And what unites that group? Race. What unites Jews other than that they are Jews, a specific race?

    What unites any group? The founders of America unified over ideology. Political parties unite over political issues. Alliances form in the face of shared enemies.

    Why must it be about race? After all, your concept of race is an incredibly recent development. Judaism and the nation of Israel predate such concepts.

    If you are to visit Israel today, you see black Jews. That’s right, there are Jews from Africa who are fully accepted by all religious authorities and are recognized as Jewish by Israel. Unified by race? Hardly.
