I am Jewish myself, so many of your comments are simply not appropriate.
Having a Jewish heritage myself (although raised non Jew), in and of itself qualifies me as a direct connection to this topic. Having read a number of books on Judaism, adds to my qualifications. Addtionally, I have gone through countless records searching for some trace of the family which was destroyed in Lwów (known as Lemberg when my grandfather was born there), as well as researching and reading about others who were obliterated during the holocaust of the early 20th century.
If that were not enough to place me as one who can speak and write on this subject, I've additionally read about the history of the Jews (as opposed to Judaism in and of itself which is the religious aspect, rather than historical).
Further, the mere fact that you happen to be Jewish, whether by birth or conversion, does not give you sole right to dictate which direction a discussion must go or which comments are appropriate or not.
I am more than above the ready line to discuss this topic. With you however there is little sense to doing so as you have already formed your own ideas of what is, what isn't and the why for each and the how for each. Discussion with you cannot be done unless you are willing to hear other takes on these matters.
The point I made is that nowhere in the Old Testament does God promise to keep the Jews safe from all harm.If some Jews reject Him because He did not always protect them, it is only because of a personal notion of their own that He owes them complete safety.Such a concept is not part of Jewish scripture.
His function according to Judaism is is to make the laws by which Jews live
and judge Jews by their level of compliance with His law.He is our Lord and Master, not our friend.That friendship idea for God is a Christian notion and not part of Judaism.
It appears your knowledge of Judaism is extremely limited.
Yours isn't any better, although you pretend it is.
You have attempted to impart your own personal notions to a religion that existed for 3,000 years before you were born.
Which is exactly what you have done. You push your personal ideas regarding a religion which began centuries before your birth.
This particular Jew categorically rejects your submissions.Even ordinary Jews have no power or authority to change Jewish law or the concepts of Judaism itself.That authority rests with God, whose word is conveyed to us through his
Tanakh and His prophets.
You can reject whatever you wish, I can choose to do the same towards your submits.
Not sure what you are attempting to say with "ordinary Jews..." Are you proclaiming yourself to be above other Jews? Must be mighty lonely in your temple. Anyway, I never said I was attempting to change Jewish law or concepts. What I offered was my thoughts upon the matter. You inquired as to why people turned from God at the time of the holocaust but not before. My response was detailed, including statements to the effect that many had turned from God at earlier times, just as some did not turn from God even with the holocaust.
My last sentence before, was "If you wish to know why a person turns from God, then you need to ask that person."
One last thing, to quote you (since you wrote it up) "This is an open discussion forum without a moderator.I can post anything I damn well please without being solicited or asked for it.
The rules for this forum specify no context requirement at all.
I do not need your approval of my material before or after I post it[/i]."
Lastly, and here I am taking your quote and aiming it back towards you,
"Why don't you take your opinions and stick them where the sun don't shine?"
