    I thought the answer was obvious. It made perfect sense in my head. For goodness sake, Harry even explains it in the book, calling Snape “The bravest man I’ve ever known” of something.

    I think the fact that this was such a pressing question says more about the people asking it than anything else.

    Hebrew and Arabic sounds similar yes, but the Hebrew equivalent of Barack is Baruch, meaning blessed, not Barak.

    Barak is Hebrew for lightning. Obama’s name is from Arabic and is completely unrelated.

    You do realize that the Bible minces no words in criticism of the ancient Israelite fascination with idolatry, right? Why then is it so surprising when it turns out to have archeological support.

    It probably varies by campus. I know fire a fact that the rutgers hillel is very active in opposing things like this. If a pro-Palestine exhibit were to be set up, hillel would have one right next door and the chabad would do another.

    The article gave a specific example of a Jew who was stabbed in France. Besides, the article itself is an advertisement for a documentary. You have questions? Then watch the documentary. Don’t complain that the article doesn’t answer every question. Imagine if a movie ad included a complete synopsis.

    Did you read the article? Have you been paying attention to recent events in Europe? France has seen a mass exodus of Jews due to the rise in antisemitism. Or did you forget about how people were taking shots at synagogues not too long ago. Amazing how short-term your memory is when it comes to things that contradict you.

    Back at you? Why should Israel return land to the Palestinians that was captured in a defensive war? Besides, my response was to your claim that Jews had no claim, which is false. Having been contradicted, you merely shifted the argument.

  • [4] November 22, 2015 at 1:55pm

    True or false? Were Jews living in what is today Israel 2000 years ago?

  • [10] November 22, 2015 at 1:43pm

    So what about all the Jews who are getting killed in tel Aviv? What about west Jerusalem? Jews get attacked there frequently.

    I see both posts. Maybe you need to be more patient in waiting for them to show up.

    Putting aside my general opposition to tattoos, I can’t help but feel trepidation over this. For some reason it reminds of the nazis using human skin for book bindings.

    You know, I’ve long waited for a legitimate explanation as to why the liberty was in an active war zone. I’ve yet to hear anyone who holds the attack against Israel come up with a good explanation.

    Similarly, I’ve yet to hear from anyone like you a reasonable motive for the attack.

    Besides, Israel paid reparations for the attack to the victims and their families. That’s more than Iran did when they attacked our embassy.

    Your history is debatable at best. It was not unheard of for members of the clergy to expose anti-Jewish hatred. It wasn’t just pogroms. There were forced conversions, blood libels, disputations, expulsions, and more. There are cathedrals to this day that show Moses with horns. And then of course we have Martin Luther, a virulent antisemite.

    Christianity has a bloody history. Fortunately they’ve gotten past it for the most part but unfortunately antisemitism didn’t go away at that time.

    You do realize that the final solution was something that came along years after Hitler came to power, right?

  • November 20, 2015 at 10:55am

    Huh? The entire story rests on his testimony? How on earth do you figure that? There were hundreds of eye witnesses, mountains of documents, dozens of photographs, and other physical evidence. We have the blueprints for the gas chambers. We have the deportation records of who was sent there. We have photos of the victims. How can you say that no other evidence exists.

    So when you question history its being thoughtful but when I ask for a source it’s me refusing to see the truth? Talk about double standards. So only you are allowed to ask questions now?

    In any case, you have proven that there were cases of torture. Congratulation. You still have yet to disprove that the Holocaust occurred, that nearly 6 million Jews were murdered, and have provided no convincing evidence that Zionists were behind it. Proving that some Nazis were forced to give confessions doesn’t discredit all the evidence that was not acquired through such means.

  • November 19, 2015 at 8:04pm

    You failed to provide evidence of such torture so I deem that argument irrelevant.

    Besides, you never explained why Israel shouldn’t use is entire arsenal to defeat a sworn enemy. Should police officers only use knives because that’s what their attackers use?

    How was the 6 million calculated? Answer, it was an approximation based on prewar numbers compared with postwar numbers. How was auschwitz calculated? By comparing the number of people deported there with the number of people who were relocated from auschwitz, the number who survived, and the number of recorded escapes.

    At no point was the 6 million figure determined by adding up the deaths. That estimate was made before we knew how many died where. That’s why, even though initial estimates went from 6.1 to 6.5 million, the current figure used is 5.9 million.

    In short, you cannot disprove the 6 million figure with your approach because it wasn’t calculated that way to begin with.

    As for the Russian issue, why is that relevant? The two numbers are mutually exclusive.

    Where’s the scientific proof of anything you claim?
