We need a strong Israel now more than ever.


And with that, I'm off to get ready for Seder.
I'm late. Happy Pesach. All of what you have described is from the right, "using the Holocaust", no evidence of gas chambers, etc... . That stuff is not from the left. It's from the right. And they know it. Blessings to you Rachel.

THIS makes you an idiot. Not because you don't know. But because you've pretended to know about Judaism in your posts.

I think you have a reading comprehension problem. Why would I pretend to know about something that I neither know about or care about?

I have had posts discussing WWII, the holocaust and some areas of the aftermath. History. Not cults or their rules.

You're right. There are lots of people who don't care/learn about other people's traditions. You don't know what Seder is, and that you made rude comments during this Holy celebration. You asked what it is. Look it up. If you are a Christian (I don't know) then you should know because the celebration of Easter comes afterwards. If you don't care about the religious holidays (even as someone who not religious) you'll never understand Western history.

Talking of starvation, 20 million Ukrainians were starved to death by the Soviets in the 1930s in what was called the holomodor. This never gets taught in schools nor the fact that the Soviets killed 100 million people since 1917. There is a reason the Germans went to war against the Soviet Union.

I don't care what it is. Rude comments/holy celebration pfffff.

I'm not religious. There is no afterlife to me.

Our time on Earth is whatever combination of heaven and hell we can make it.

I am Western history. Down to the bone marrow.

It's probably nice to hide behind crosses and symbols.
I wouldn't know. Life without a shield is a *****.

Thank you! And same to you! (You're Jewish? You don't look Jewish!)

As far as the source of the antisemitism, I've noticed that the worst of it has come from self-described libertarians. Then, it's fairly divided between the left and the right, although the expressions take different forms. I think that could make for another good thread - how antisemitism reveals itself on the left and right, and the differences - although it's NOT a good topic to start on the first day of Passover*. G-d knows it would attract the antisemites like moths to a flame, and it's not the thing to do at the start of such a wonderful holiday. Maybe next week.....

(*obviously, I'm not strictly observant, since I'm on the computer on the 1st day of Passover (and Shabbos - a double Oye), but I don't need to energize the antisemites today either!

Antisemitism this, antisemitism that. Blah blah blah.

Somewhere the world's smallest violin is playing just for you.

I don't care that 6 million Jews died in WWII. 18 MILLION Soviet noncombatants died because of war related causes. When war broke out the city of Kharkov had a population of 3 million. In 1943 when the Red Army took the city back for the last time the population was 150,000 starving Nazi slaves. A lot of the people fled at the first signs of fighting, about 1/3rd of the population. A lot were shipped off to Germany and into slavery in the war factories there. The rest died of starvation and disease.

This was a cycle repeated all over the territories occupied by the Nazis. Whole villages with the women and children that lived there burned to the ground.

6 million Jews are all we need to hear about? Please people.
