Judaism is a religion, like Christianity. There is no skin colour attached to religion.

The only ones who even benefit are the Jewish lawyers but that's another conversation. We don't want or need that stuff.
Wow! Ignorant, butthurt, xenophobic, anti-American, anti-Semitic and profoundly arrogant! With all of those characteristics, you should be hosting a primetime show on the CBC!

The response to your horridly bigoted post from all your other so-called "tolerant, progressive" Canadians (except for Acajack, who seems to be the only one with a spine): *crickets*

Do not waste your time....the user "canada number one" is a deranged individual, a well known presence on this forum, just ignore him...I also suspect, from the tone of his writing, a huge inferiority complex towards the evil US.

That is true. I was in Israel last month, while most Jews appear white, there are black and mixed ones as well. But most Jews are white, just like most Arabs are white.

However, in western media, the Jews are always singled out as a different group of people, as if it were a race or ethnicity. I don't know why. It is nothing but a religion people can choose to to have or abandon.

That's because they are (i.e. an ethnic group).

A Jew might stop believing in "Judaism", but they can't abandon their Jewish ethnicity.

They are playing you well. You bought the idea they are Canadian. Proof?

Frankly, I do not care....I just ignore what he says (that was my advice to the other poster), troll or not....if he is real, it's sad.... simply I do not waste my time debating this individual.

It's weird that some people view Judaism as a race - not sure how people get so mixed up.
I never really viewed Arabic people as caucasian because they are so dark haired and dark skinned, but I've never really thought about it before.

That doesn't mean European-descended Americans are a more multicultural group than European-descended Canadians.

You need to compare the first and second-generation European populations (%). I doubt most third-generation people have retained their "culture".
