On the Matter of defining “Jewish”
Posted by Henric C. Jensen on February 14, 2009
Silly Old Bear, may I ask what defines you as a Jew? I believe there is a certain amount of dissension as to whether your heritage is carried via the mother or the father or both. Can a proselyte become a Jew? I am in no way anti-semetic but isn’t the Jewish faith and/or race as exclusive as any religion – perhaps more so?
“I am in no way…anti-semitic….but…” That’s what they all say. When you read or hear “I am not….but” you know, it’s a dead give-away that there’s something treif (non-kosher) about that person’s thought process. Non-Jewish people who wish to define Jewishness wish to do so because they want to profile someone.
This guy is not interested in the answers to his question – if he really was, he could just as well Wikipedia the answer – Who is a Jew? – No, he just has to target the only openly Jewish guy in the discussion and demand answers to insensire question – question born out of his antisemitism
About two years ago I wrote this:
“The Jews control the media…”
“The Jews control the diamond trade…”
“The Jews created those Muhammad cartoons…”
“The Jews control the world’s banks…”
“The Jews controlled the Slave trade…”
“The Jews cause the Black Plague…”
“The Jews control the UN…”
“The Jews control the movie industry…”
Why is defining someone as “Jewish” important? What does someone being Jewish have to do with the media, the diamond trade, the Muhammad Cartoons, the Slave Trade, the Black Plague, the UN, the movie industry?
Why is that all other peoples in the world are defined as the country they live in, but a resident of Sweden or America or any other country, who also happens to be Jewish, is defined as “Jewish”?
One guy actually came in and responded to the question with “to show bias” – and probably thought that he was only saying that he wants to show the “Jewish bias” – well, it turns out that he also shows his own bias – against anything “Jewish” – and so does anyone insisting on defining things as Jewish, where “Jewish” is completely irrelevant.
