Jews in the "trnc"

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

So, not Jewish by birth or religious allegence; and this brings up a point; so often I see on CF confusion between the use of the word 'Jew' and the word 'Israeli'. I assume we are discussing Israelis here; we do not describe (GC) Cypriots as 'Christians', we describe them as 'Cypriots' - and why wouldn't we, so why describe 'Israelis' as 'Jews'?

Anyway, i digress, Jewish sympathiser, not really - but I have lived in Jewish communities and have visited Israel on more than one occasion, so perhaps know the history and culture of the Jewish (and Israeli!) people quite well, which is why, so often, I am aghast at the sheer ignorance and narrow minded racism I see.

For those interested, there is also a Synagogue in Larnaca, details at www.jewishcyprus.com.

But surely the state that was created in Palestine was a Jewish Homeland or State. Other races were moved out to make way for the Jews - not Israelis. I image anyone other than a Jewish immigrant would find it difficult (impossible?) to become a citizen of that country even if he was born there - ask a Palestinian. Perhaps the narrow minded racism to the east of Cyprus has rubbed of on some CF contributors.

Palestinians who live in Israel are, to the best of my knowledge, referred to as Israeli Arabs, not simply Israeli.

Hi Jerry

Not for one moment would I suggest that many Israelis/Jewish people are not racist in their views, nor that there is not a great deal of injustice in Israel to minorities - my point is, it is still disappointing find anti semitism alive and well on CF. Perhaps my wish for universal enlightenment is unrealistic.

That's Nouveau Cuisine - a style of food presentation that leaves one both hungry and skint!

I once ordered spare ribs in the Hard Rock Cafe in Tel Aviv - not a Kosher joint!

Oy Vay! Am I having an identity crises, my Boy. - I am not sure if I am a lapsed Jew, or descended from a load of Krauts who called themselves Angle Saxons or Jutes - so many people trying to tell me what my Genos is.

Well if I have a DNA test I might tell you the answer.

In the meantime just Fuck off and help your mates beat up another Pensioner.
