Skip to comments.40% of US Jews: G-d Gave Israel to Jews

ews in the United States are overwhelmingly proud to be Jewish, yet nearly one in five of them describe themselves as having no religion, according to a Pew Research Center survey published Tuesday.
The gap is generational, with 32 percent of Jews born after 1980 identifying as Jewish on the basis of ancestry, ethnicity or culture compared with 93 percent of Jews born in 1914-27 who identified on the basis of their faith.
"This shift in Jewish self-identification reflects broader changes in the US public," said Pew's Religion and Public Life Project in a summary of its 210-page report.
"Americans as a whole not just Jews increasingly eschew any religious affiliation," with 22 percent of all Americans identifying with no particular faith, it said.
Nevertheless, 94 percent of respondents said they were proud to be Jewish, while seven out of 10 felt either very attached or somewhat attached to Israel, a proportion essentially unchanged since the turn of the 21st century, Pew said.
Forty percent believe that the land of Israel was given to the Jewish people by God, ....

How many Jews (or anyone else, for that matter) born from 1914 to 1927 are still with us?
Poor Arabs. Only 99.995% of the territory in the Middle-East, and so little place to find shelter.
I don’t know. None at my house...
And 100% of liberals want to give it away.
It’s not enough. We want Israel, Spain and Southern France back, and reparations from Richard Couer de Lion’s descendants.
Sad but true...
I thought Israel was a man who had 12 sons (tribes) and were given land wherein the southern end was give to Son Judah and Son Benjamin. The 10 other brothers were given the “northern” area after a split between the brothers.
I think they all were called Israelites.
Now I have heard of a new jerUSAlem that became as a harlot who will be judged because she went whoring after other gods.
What happened to Judah and Benjamin? Babylonian captivity.
10 other brothers? Assyrian captivity.
All scattered to the four corners of the earth?
That this number isn’t at least twice this, at 80%, is shameful.
What is the connection? My mom was born in 1925 and thank G-d she is still kicking, still driving too!
AND WELL OVER 50% OF AMERICAN JEWS GAVE AMERICA TO THE FASCIST DEMOCRATS.....
If the Erf is round, as so many claim, how can there be corners? And where, exactly, are these corners?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
G_d will forget those who forget Him.
I don’t have real figures for this, but it seems that 80% of the Jews I know voted for zero. How does that happen?
Jews ought to be proud of being Jewish. Jews have had a greater positive impact on the world than any other ethnic group period followed by English-speakers.
Interesting recounting, but didn’t that contract contain punishment clauses and a perpetuity agreement by and between the parties, their heirs, etc.
I never understood why a Jew who is an agnostic, an atheist, a Buddhist in belief and practice, or even a Canaanite religionist or even a Gaia devotee, can immigrate to Israel as a Jew; but if he is a baptized believer in Jesus Christ, then -—poof -— he’s not a Jew and cannot immigrate.
Could somebody explain that to me?
He is a Jew, no matter what religion he decides he believes in, even Islam or Satanism (there is a difference, I think). If that’s the way the State of Israel views it, they’re at variance with halacha.
That stereotype about Jews being smart? Don’t believe it.
The Menashites are back, having lived for 2,700 years around India and China. The Tribe of Dan is partially back from Ethiopia. The Bucharans are from the Tribe of Naftali. Levites and Cohanim are mixed with all the other tribes, including Judah and Benjamin. As for the remaining tribes, they’ll be along. I’ve heard that the fanatically Islamic Pashtuns might be from Efraim, and hope that’s just a bogus claim, very common in Afghanistan.
Thank you for this answer. I really don’t know much about it. I thought that the immigration rules in Israel were made by a board of Orthodox Rabbis, who (it seems to me) would be guided exclusively by halacha. But perhaps they themselves are in violation? It seems strange.
Rabbis have nothing to do with the running of the state, which is by a cabal of anti-religious socialistic liars, no matter who gets elected. And the religious parties have never had a majority. This year, they’re not even in the government, other than Bennett’s semi-religious party.
"I quite realized", said Columbus,
"That the Earth is not a rhombus;
But I am more than a little annoyed,
To find it an oblate spheroid!"
Not as much a religion thing as a persecution thing. I don't think Rabbis are involved at all.
The Reich, I think, didn’t care if you took a different faith. They believed Jewishness was a genetic disease that had to be eradicated by killing all carriers of the gene.
Thanks for your answer, SJackson. I guess I'll have to look into this further when I get a chance, because it's complicated. For instance, consider that many thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of people of Jewish ancestry were killed in WWII, even though they were baptized Christians, because to the Nazis they were racially Jews. It was a race thing, a race-euthanasia.
This is how a Catholic saint, Edith Stein, was killed, even though she was a Carmelite nun: she and her sister Rosa were arrested in the convent which was their home, put on a train to Auschwitz, and gassed the day they arrived.
At the time of her canonization as St. Benedicta, just a few years ago, there was a spate of controversy because the question was tossed about, "But was she killed as a Jew or as a Catholic? And, if as a Jew, can the Catholic Church claim her as a martyr?"
It's fairly clear from the record that Sr. Benedicta/Edith would have said "Yes, both.' But sometimes the person's own self-understanding is not taken as the last word.
Anti Christ sentiment.
That’s what supporting the left is, at its core.
Sorry, I didn’t quite get what you are trying to say.
The reason that [liberal] American Jews vote for the left is the same as the reason they crucified Him - they reject Him as the Savior, and position themselves against His people today.
Ironic, though, because those people are the biggest supporters of God’s original people that you could find.
