    If porn can serve as a substitute for starting a family and sharing your life with someone else, then perhaps these men aren’t marriage material.

    You claim they kill them “by the thousands”. I read that as thousands dying each day. It took nearly a month to reach those numbers. Meanwhile, in Syria there are days where hundreds die at a time.

    The fact that Israel, with its level of technology, causes fatalities with less than 5% of its air strikes, is entirely relevant. Israel’s weapons are accurate enough to kill minimum 3 people per strike, which would easily cause deaths in the tens or hundreds of thousands. Moreover, the majority of those killed were enemy combatants, something not even the USA achieves very often.

    The simplest reason is that they were different and insisted on remaining different. Very few cultures prior to recent history have found the capacity to accept that which is unfamiliar. Many literally could not comprehend how anyone could choose to be different.

    For example, Martin Luther, a man who needs no introduction, believed that the only reason Jews didn’t accept Christianity was due to the Catholic Church, and that by reforming the church Jews would have no more reason not to convert immediately. When this didn’t happen, Martin Luther went on to author a series of proposed actions against the Jews that closely echo what the Nazis later did, such as the burning of synagogues.

    “Israel slaughters their neighbors by the thousands.”

    Factually false. Israel averages less than one civilian killed for every 50 airstrikes.

    Parasites living off US tax payers? Not even close. Israel doesn’t receive so much of a penny of economic aid, which means they’re on their own. Palestinians meanwhile receive quite a bit of both economic and humanitarian aid from the US, aid that they could not survive without.

    “Doesn’t the Talmud say unspeakable things of +JESUS+GOD+”

    Many have claimed as such. Most of those claims are based on distortion of the Talmud or taking passages out of context.

    I beg you, never say that again.

    Who’s offended? Besides you that is over the fact this story dared to appear in front of your eyes.

    All this story says is how indelicately ignorant one politician was. Biden says worse than this on a daily basis.

    I doubt Israel even has this technology.

    Cinco de Mayo celebrates a national military victory by Mexico, which is why most Americans ignore it. Hanukkah celebrates a religious victory, as the Seleucid Greeks had outlawed the Jewish faith and desecrated the Temple. Jews celebrate it because without that victory there would be no Jews left today, as all would have assimilated into Greek culture.

    Incidentally, it just occurred to me, but had the Seleucid Greeks been victorious, there probably wouldn’t be any Christians either, so far from being an attack on Christmas, one could say that without Hanukkah there would be no Christmas.

    Having read the Talmud and researched many of the accusations about Jesus in it, I have found no conclusive evidence that the Talmud so much as mentioned him.

    Besides, you neglected his mother, who was also of Judean ancestry. Moreover, as a Jew, I would contend that Joseph was Jesus’s true father, though that is beside the point. After all, if we’re talking about parentage, you would claim that his father was neither Judean nor Galilean.

    And what “mistake” are you referring to. I’ve reviewed my entire comment and see only statements of fact. Esther 2:5 calls Mordechai a Jew/Judean of the tribe of Benjamin. Matthew writes that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, which is in Judea.

    Moreover, Matthew also cites Joseph among Jesus’s lineage because the prophets had indicated that the Messiah would be the descendant of David.

    The Bible calls Mordechai a Jew/Judean despite his living in Persia. Besides, according to your own sources, Jesus was born in Bethlehem, which is in Judea. The fact he was also Galilean doesn’t change the fact that his ancestors were Judean

    “Further, why is a CITY COUNCIL doing this at all”

    Most likely nil, they weren’t doing it. They simply permitted Jewish residents of the city to do a public lighting on public property. Jews do pay taxes you know. So why can’t they get permission to use public land that they help pay for for 1 day out of 365.

    Jews for Jesus, to the best of my knowledge, was actually a Christian proselytizing movement targeted at Jews. Many people confuse it with Messianic Jews, a Christian (i.e. they believe Jesus was the Messiah) sect that practices Jewish holidays and traditions and claims to be Jewish.

  • [5] December 18, 2014 at 11:10am

    So in summary you became what people call a Messianic Jew (which most Jews still consider to be a Christian sect).

    And yet you would never be caught dead complaining about any other “FOREIGN holiday”. Ramadan is fine despite being from Arabia. St. Patrick’s Day is okay despite it being from Ireland. St. Valentine’s Day is probably from somewhere in Europe. Christmas and Easter commemorate events said to have happened in modern day Israel.

    Hypocrisy. If you were truly against “foreign holidays”, you’d oppose any holiday that celebrates anything prior to the 16th century. You call for American-only holidays like 4th of July and Thanksgiving.

    But of course, this has nothing to do with them being foreign.

    So a holiday which predates Christianity by over 2 centuries is somehow anti-Christian? You can go through every single prayer and song for this holiday and not find Christians ever mentioned.

    Next you’ll tell me that Passover is an attack on Easter when Passover predates Easter by over 1000 years.

    As a religious Jew, I fail to see how one man’s ignorance is a threat. Biden makes comments like this almost every time he opens his mouth. Besides, many of the Jews who voted for Obama don’t even celebrate Hanukkah at all.

  • [5] December 17, 2014 at 7:17pm

    And this is the man who’s got Israel’s back, right?

  • [1] December 17, 2014 at 5:28pm

    You actually believe that what happened to Clinton and Sebelius had anything to do with their gender? What evidence do you have of that? Conservatives went after Holder as well you know. But I suppose you say that was about race.
