    Catering to the politically stupid, arrogant young leftist Jews immersed in today’s academe is just trying to play catch up in a lost cause. Time will cure most of them when they run out of other people’s money.

    Is it alienation or vacuity?

    And here I thought it was only the Christian youth that were stupid.
    It makes me feel kind of good to know that Jews have the same problem.

      We do and I refer to them as the stupid Jews.

    Same old, same old. This kind of thing has been going on for centuries. Why do you think there are so few Jews in the world? Because we keep assimilating. Always have, probably always will. It takes guts to be a Jew.

    • WalterBannon

      well, who do you thing the early Christians were…

      Christianity is only sect of Judaism

      • Waffle

        Well, you’re only partially right. It started out that way, but Paul had other ideas.

        • Shebel

          I know your post was not directed at me —Waffle -but my point was that it is sooo easy to become a Muslim and sooo dificult to become a Jew . Hence— so few Jews and sooo many Muslims.

          • Waffle

            You raise a very valid point: who is a Jew? Some of us are born into the tribe and are considered “Jewish” by the rabbis even though we may not be observant (like myself) Others choose to become Jewish and observe key tenets of the religion (keeping the sabbath, keeping kosher).

    • Shebel

      Is that a fact? I can become a Muslim if I want. It is really easy. I could probably be a Muslim by tomorrow if I really tried.

      Do you think that I could become a Jew ,by next week, if I tried really hard?

      • k1962

        You could be Muslim in about 10 seconds by reciting the whatever they call it (shahada?). It would take at least 1 year to become Jewish. You would need to study and learn about the religion and live it first.

        • Shebel

          Just checking

      Hitlers murder of 1/3 of our population didn’t help.

    How many young Jews have become alienated from their people? I suspect that it is fewer than the media triumphantly proclaim it to be.
