Bruce in Vancouver,
I’m writing this feeling considerable stress, since I have other even more pressing matters to attend to.
Please feel free to continue this discussion but in a courteous manner and let it not be hard against hard because if we both maintain forum decorum, neither of us will get into trouble even if it’s possible that only one of us is a master of popular or not so popular invective or not willing to be constrained by the laws of Lashon Hara
You ask three loaded questions, of the type “Have you stopped beating your wife?” and in each of which is hidden a logical fallacy. You say that you could go on all day, in the same vein, and so I thank you most sincerely that you don’t. I’m familiar with the usual catalogue of crap, the long list of anti-Semitic discontent – and I know how to easily dispense with them.
Your three questions are interlinked, thematically – of course you are talking about Jewish people, not about Muslims or Angels or Mormons or Catholics and I patiently await your own answers to the questions that you yourself have asked.
About question one – well, you could also ask how is it that Africa- America is 13% of the US population and yet, has a president of the US of A in the White House. (I’m waiting for your answer. We can discuss that, and by then I’ll have enough time to suggest some answers of my own.
With regard to your question 2, “Why are 75% of the professors at Harvard, Jews?” – is that a fact? I have older editions of the The Jewish Almanac which state by state give accurate figures for the number of Jewish students enrolled in the major universities of the United States. Given your 2%, the numbers of Jewish students in the sixties and seventies (I met a few everywhere, even research students in Africa) and you too must admit that the number of those students is quite impressive – and in most places accounted for something like 5- 15 % of the student populations – You must agree that’s a lot of educated people. It must be that the Jewish people in America set a high premium on education, and not just in playing the violin, for many obvious reasons. Some of these and those who went to school after them must now be working in the various administrations, in the large numbers that you are griping about.
Of course there’s also something that’s legally known as the Jewish Lobby.
Considering that the Jewish People account for approximately 0.2% of the world population ,you could well ask this corollary to your second question: How come that Jews are overrepresented in winning the Nobel Prize?
Perhaps a major cause of jealousy, envy, frustration (and instead of rejoicing about some of these blessings to mankind) anti-Semitism in some quarters:
As to your third question, “Why is ALL THE MEDIA owned and controlled by Jews?”
C’mon man, WHO told you that all the media is owned and controlled by Jews?????????
I was in Britain during the Monica Lewinsky scandal which the equally moralizing British press took up without abruption with Sunday morning spreads running to over half a dozen pages in the major British papers (The Times, Independent, Telegraph, etc) Do you know that some 300 of the top, most influential US opinion- building papers IN THE USA are owned and controlled by the House of Windsor?
Some say that America never formally ceased being a colony – just as many still maintain that Great Britain is the brain and USA is the muscle.
You can have it your way, Canada…
No I haven’t watched past the first 20 minutes of ”Defamation” last night, but have seen all of “Bruce Almighty” which is quite funny. I won’t have time to continue with the viewing of this film now, as I am cleaning up most thoroughly for Pesach which starts tomorrow evening. WE wish that we could also clean out the chametz and some of the other dross that habitually resides in minds.
Now why are you being so unkind to Mr. Foxman whose Anti-Defamation League is there to defend the Jewish people against anti-Semitism, bigotry, and extremism leaning on terrorism and terror activities; Mr. Foxman who has never done you any harm?
I’m not saying that he is above criticism – our democracies permit that ( criticism, but not vile anti-Semitism) and here one of my favourite (chosen) journalists Mark Steyn takes him to task without being an anti- Semite…
There are people like Shlomo Sands who must be laughing his head off and making a fortune in the Arab and Muslim world in particular, having assembled some “ evidence” to serve up what they would like to hear. I saw him smiling on BBC Hardtalk. He and his publisher must be smiling all the way to the bank, raking in more and more petro-dollars.
Well here’s something that you could take a good look at: reflections on one more term that’s used to accuse
You are somewhere talking about the B’nai B’rith whilst I’m in somewhere else talking about Malmö. So what’s happening in Gaza and Vancouver?
I should like to add this profound opinion
for our consideration.
With kind feelings, but not the kind you harbour against Abe Foxman,
