Alphakronik: It seems that Jews are the most thin-skinned people in the world.  And, no...that's not an anti-semitic statement.


You realize that it actually is though...right?

8 inches: wistfulparanoia: inclemency: It doesn't actively convert people because it has ingrained racist xenophobic tendencies

That's absolutely and patently false. You're farking just making up reasons on the spot out of your personal anti-Semitism!. At least make an attempt to do research on the subject.

On the Orthodox side of Judaism, it's difficult to convert because there are a ton of obligations (holidays, prayers before and after food, other strict rules). For one to want to take on these obligations, they would need to be very committed.

The difficult process also weeds out those who are converting for ulterior motives: e.g.- to marry into the faith, as opposed to for the pure reasons of believing in the tenets.

RE: your friend. As a typical anti-Semite (see also Hitler), you justify your "axe to grind" with an entire religion because of the experience of your friend. You call your friend's becoming more religious "indoctrination" out of your personal biases. I know many who have turned to faith after a death in the family. Saying Mourners Kaddish (prayers mourning for the dead) for a family member who passed away is a Jewish tradition. Your friend probably took that on, and other traditions on his own. Nobody FORCES anybody to do what they are not comfortable doing.

Please educate yourself: being agnostic does not justify your anti-Semitism.

This.



Meh. Be a whiny, self absorbed, victimized people all you want.

I'll just continue to not respect your self righteous and arrogant zealots. Like you and mister 'if you disagree with me you're a racist'  you're aligning yourself with. Enjoy your echo chamber.

I am happy at this point to have you paint me as you like.

I don't feel I'm hateful in my heart or actions towards your people. At least not because of their or your faith/race. I will not cowtow however and deny my misgivings which I feel are reasonable.

You go on and feel righteous, I don't desire taking that from you. You feel comfortable painting me as a racist, that is your hateful choice. Just because I haven't fully explained the story of my friend and you are disturbingly defensive doesn't mean I'm wrong or a racist.

wistfulparanoia: inclemency: Nah.

Also, don't annoint themselves the chosen people and are less xenophobic. farked up by the militant opportunists, but the core message of Islam is much less self-aggrandizing and selfish than Judaism. Lot of ego in that faith.

Your comments make you sound like a regular anti-Semite. You're stereotyping an entire religion, you realize that?

Also, the "chosen people' moniker isn't meant to be arrogant or a superiority complex. It's meant to signify that the Jewish people were chosen to fulfill mitzvot and commandments to G-d. It's meant much more to signify an obligation than to imply other nationalities are inferior.

If Judaism considered itself so superior, it would logically try to convert others into it actively. However, it's not easy to convert into Judasim. It seeks people who truly want to become Jewish, and people who demonstrate an actual desire to commit to the tenets of the faith.

So tell me, how can you claim a tenet of Judaism is to be arrogant and self-aggrandizing, and then claim you're not an anti-Semite. Please educate yourself. Your attitude is poisonous to this world.


It doesn't actively convert people because it has ingrained racist xenophobic tendencies. As a group of people, in my personal and second hand achieved experience, Jews suffer from a pretty justifiable but also annoying persecution complex which ill-befits (however justified) such a prosperous people.

I have a bit of Axe to grind because a close secular Jewish friend was indoctrinated into a cultish orthodoxy after his father died and he spent many hours telling me how much better than me he was before I broke off contact, but I don't have a general hatred of Jewish folks. I do feel comfortable generalizing and mentally (or, in theory, verbally or with written word) apologizing to those I misjudge.

Stereotypes exist for a reason but don't paint all they encompass fairly.

As for your last paragraph, disliking some traits doesn't mean I'm filled with hate. I think it's an arrogant religion, if you want I can tell you what I find annoying about other religions. I suspect that wouldn't interest you however. But if I'm not in awe it isn't an indication I have a KKK membership.

Can you point to another sect of people who are more easily offended by criticism to back up your statement?


Challenging him to out-racist you doesn't make your statement not racist.

Also, to answer your question, college students.

So who were the space Jews in Star Trek: the Ferengi or Bajorans?

You know what, given his messages of tolerance elsewhere, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. A wig, fake beard, and fake nose are standard "ridiculous disguise" materials.
