I guess all the people here with the different variations of El Al nicknames are Jewish.

I was more interested of those that are not Israeli.
Are you Jewish Hepkat?

Sam.

Hepkat, there aren't that many Jews here. Just a lot of support for Israel.


Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

Many users on here have tried to demonize Jews, which honestly is just sick. There just as bad as the Nazi's and personally, I think they should all be deleted from here for good, even though Im not Jewish. I still have a respect for Jews and have many Jewish friends with a wonderful culture I'd be proud to be part of. I don't know how many there are on there though, not to many I think.

Honest, I don't think they have. There IS a difference between Israel and being Jewish. I don't think anyone (no, not even SAS23) has insulted Jews simply because they're Jewish. In all honesty, there's a lot more angst against other religions (see Matt D's current thread) and in those cases it IS solely because of their religion. Critism at Israel shouldn't be confused with anti-Semitism.

However.....

...some people here try to make out that critism against Israel IS anti-Semitism. After all, Israel is a Jewish state. Critise Israel and you critise Jews, right? I think that's wrong. There is a distinction between Israel and Jews but certain people, mainly pro-Israel, like to keep the link. It makes anyone anti-Israel seem anti-Semetic and racist.

I'm Jewish. I try to respect other relligions and cultures.

I do feel a lot of anti semetic sentimen on A.net

I recall a certain user, calling Jews "cheap arses"

Isreal as a goverment may or may not have it comming to them.... but to agree with attacks on Jewish citizens of Israel (and not Military targets) is, IMHO, amti-semetic.

I fast, celebrate the holidays, overall keep the faith. however, I must admit that since moving away from the family, we don't celebrate as much or as grandly as we used to.

Back before 1996 (when we moved) Passover and Hanukkah were grand affairs within my family. my grandmother would be cooking for a week before the celebrations. Passover was always the grandest one, where about 20 of us would gather at her house and enjoy a feast. Lemme see, there'd be drinks and snacks before including crackers, several kinds of cheese, pate, and vegetable dips. appetizer would be gefilte fish (never liked the stuff) and matzo ball soup. Main course would include stuffing, roast tongue, roast brisket, cornish hens, sweet potatoes and apricots, gravy, ground liver, and vegetables. dessert would include a strawberry mousse, ice cream and several kind of cakes. all made by my grandmother, and the leftovers would last for 2 weeks. sure its not all kosher, but its sooooo good.

The best things about being Jewish: 1) The food. 2) Family. 3) Traditions

Hey Russ, just as a side note...
Michal is more pronounced like... Mi-chal...

And for those of you who may think its a man's name, its not..
Michal in English would be Michele... In Hebrew it sounds different.

Just like Michael in English does not sound the same as in Hebrew (or in German for instance..) although you write it in the same way.

Anyhow, its a very popular name in Hebrew/Israel... (it also appears in the bible, as Michal was the wife of king David, she was also the daughter of king Shaul...)

Btw, Sam does have a sister named Michal..!  Smile

Michael
