Foofie, you sound just like David Duke (if you replace the word "Jew" with "White" and the word "shiksa" with "Jew")
I am a half-Jew, and I am rather proud of that.
Not correct. The difference is that David Duke seems to see Jews as the essential ingredient of what will be the dissolution of white America, they supposedly being the owners of the media. I recently heard a radio interview with him, so I know, if I understood him, I am correct. I am not claiming Gentiles have any collective agenda against Jews. Just that interfaith dating will ultimately be the cause for dissolution of Jews outside of Israel.
I know you are from a mixed marriage. And, being proud of your mixed ethnicity is just adorable. And Bill Clinton is one quarter Cherokee. That too is adorable. It's just so American to be of mixed parentage. And, may I ask, how do you celebrate your mixed ancestry? A Star of David ornament from one's Christmas tree? In other words, one can be whatever they want in America; however, one usually identifies with one group only, a la Obama, or a host of other personalities from mixed marriages.
Now that we're done with the pandering, you might need to see that many Jews want to remain Jews, as a viable identity, and that is not really possible with the rate of Jewish intermarriage, since children are usually brought up in the faith of their mothers, and more Shiksas marry Jewish males, than vice versa. Even if the children of a mixed marriage are secular, they tend to marry out, so one's Jewish identity is lost FOREVER. Not important to you? Fine. No one is trying to proselytize; however, please accept the reality that not everyone who has a Jewish identity wants to lose it in a generation or two via children, or grandchildren. One can almost think that your position is trivializing Jewishness as a viable identity outside of Israel?
You are a product of America. You are not a product of Israel, where intermarriage is verboten. Blame the Final Solution for such thinking.
