I'd say something snarky but the fact that these people sustained their faith in the face of social asimilation is interesting. Much like the Jewish tribes in Northern Africa. But then, there's a reason third world nations remain third world nations.

What a scam:

Wikipedia: "The claim appeared after a Pentecostalist dreamt in 1951 that his people's pre-Christian religion was Judaism and that their original homeland was Israel. Linguistically, Bnei Menashe are Tibeto-Burmans and belong to the Mizo, Kuki and Chin peoples.[4] They are called Chin in Burma. Prior to their conversion to Christianity in the 19th Century, the Chin, Kuki, and Mizo were headhunters and animists[5]"

What a scam.

For some reason I thought the subby was referring to Native Americans who were supposedly of Israeli descent (i.e., the Lamanites and Nephites - neither of which have any archeological record).

Nor do these guys. These guys believe they're Jewish because some Pentacostal preacher had a dream that they're Jewish.

Well... it's a religion. Can someone look.... Catholic?

You could call it a culture... but even describing it as an ethnicity is a stretch. Even in the main main main stream sense modern Jews are distributed pretty broadly amongst white, black, Spanish or Russian background. At this point I have 2nd cousins who are Ethiopian Jews, black as night and all that. While relations between the various sects and colors of judaism are not perfect, it's pretty powerfully post-racial.

It'd be like seeing a picture of... I don't know, any Bishop, Archbishop or what have you of the RCC in Africa and wondering why they don't look Italian.

The idea of Jews as a race is myopic and misguided - whether it be from within or without - as it has nothing to do with the creed or the beliefs of the religion itself.

"Israel is my heritage and religion. Israel is everything to me," said Ben Asher, 23, who arrived with his family. "We are very happy. We've been waiting for this moment for hundreds of years."


How can they have been waiting for it for hundreds of years if the country isn't even 80 years old? And why didn't anyone move sooner than after hundreds of years? If your ancestors just kept moving to the next village over every decade you'd practically be there already.

What a scam.


Zionists are desperate to get the Jewish head count up, anybody with any remote claim, even specious, to Judaism is welcome nowadays--unless they are Palestinian.

About that:

The Ma'alot massacre

the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, or the DFLP seized the school- 25 hostages, including 22 children, were killed and 68 more were injured.

Mercaz HaRav Massacre
Eight students killed. Eleven more were wounded, five of them placed in serious to critical condition

As long as you let schizophrenics have guns this will happen.
I define a schizophrenic as someone who believes in someone I can't see.
Occasionally, they do what the little voices in their heads tell them to do.
You can lock them all up, you can drug them all. or you can kill them all.
Over the years, all three solutions have been tried.

You can't stop them as long as you let them vote.

Really? Post racial? LMFAO. Judaism is defined by the fact that you are a Jew if you have a Jewish mother.

This is not a claim about Israel.
This is a claim about Jews.

So this is not somehow merely anti-Zionist. This is anti-semitism.

/reads the article...

It is Russia's response to the Magnitsky Act, a law signed by U.S. President Barack Obama earlier this month to bar Russians accused of human rights violations from entering the United States and to freeze any assets they hold there.


Oh, so its the Russians using children as a thin excuse to be assholes to us for no good reason? everyone carry on then...

A Jewish couple from The Bronx embark on a year-long journey through China. One day, in a very small village in a remote Northern area they see, to their surprise, a synagogue!
They rush in and sit down, as services were just starting.
After the service they ran up to one of the congregants and asked/exclaimed "Hey - you're Jewish?!?" and the man replied "Yes, we are all Jews here."
Excited by this revelation they blurt out "We're from NY - and we're Jewish, too!"
The old man looks at them askance and says "Funny, you don't look Jewish."

On a serious note, there is a very small but active Jewish community in parts of China, especially Shanghai. This is due at least in part because Shanghai was, during WWII, one of the few sanctuary cities who took in Jewish refugees from Europe.
 
2012-12-26 12:11:46 PM  
re Shanghai: Yes, I've seen the documentary.
I think that most of the Jews who went during WWII didn't stay when the war was over.
