I'm not Jewish but I have a great respect for the Jews as a nation and Israel as a state. What say Jewish Freepers to this guy? Would you say his points represent what most American Jews most notably the 80% of Jews who voted for NObama have been brainwashed to believe?
Jews for Hitler.

I am a hardcore orthodox zionist Jew. And here we go......another dumb thread about secular Jews and throwing Obama into it as well. Why do you want Jews to discuss this video? We know what it is about. Do you?
The endless, “Jewish people are so stupid” threads are bizarre, and I wonder if there is not some sort of misdirected antisemtism going on.
Jewish voters make up 1.7% of the electorate, about half of which are in NY State.
If every Jewish voter voted for McCain, Obama would still have won.
It’s disproportionate concern for our piddly tribe.
How did the Amish vote? I bet there are more Amish than Jewish people in PA. They could have swung the state!
Our family are faithful and strong Christians and my husband and I raised our children in our faith.
One year our son's violin teacher invited us to her family's Passover seder. We were extremely honored to attend and my husband and I spent many days preparing our children, researching, and reading the stories to them from the bible concerning Moses and the great and wonderful Exodus from Egypt.
As it turns out, our son's teacher was married to non-Jew who was likely an atheist or ( at best) a secularist. This father's attitude was, “We do this to humor my wife.” ( Wink wink!) While the mother was doing her best to teach the story of the Passover, the father was sitting with one leg thrown over the arm of his chair, rolling his eyes, and emitting bored sighs on occasion. Their two girls ( taking their cue from their father) slumped in their chairs. If strongly prompted by their mother, they answered in grunts and monosyllables.
In contrast, our children eagerly participated, and I was so proud of them as they knew many of the answers and asked relevant questions.
This Passover became and important teaching example for our family. When we wanted to stress how important it was to marry within our faith, all we had to say was, “Do you remember the father with his leg thrown over his chair? Is this what you want in a husband or wife?”
Honestly, as a Christian, this was a painful video to watch. I attended professional school in Philadelphia and earned a doctorate in one of the most competitive health professions. My school was predominantly Jewish, and sadly, nearly all of my many Jewish friends had as much allegiance to their Jewish faith as the character in this video. I dated a Jewish man whose commitment to his Jewish faith was a millimeter deep, and he, too, could have been reading the video script.
Again,...It is my prayer that the Jews in this nation will rediscover their faith. Everyone in this nation ( especially the Jews) would reap great blessings if this were to happen.
Couldn’t have said it better.
I would think the percentage is a bit larger and most Jewish voters reside in LA not NY.
Liberal Jews may be dumb, but some FReepers are giving them a run for their money.
Well, I didn’t watch the video.
I know it’s a parody. That’s the point. He’s mocking liberal jews who voted for NObama.
Can’t you see that this is satire,
I got the satire...but...It saddens me that satire is both possible and necessary.
Again, as a Christian, it is my sincerest prayer that inactive Jews will return to the faith of their fathers and grow deep spiritual roots within their faith. All of us in our nation ( and the world), Jews and gentiles alike, would be spiritually and temporally greatly blessed if they did.
I did hear any references to politics or voting. It was entirely a spiritual message.
Oops! My mistake that should be:
I did **NOT**hear any references to politics or voting. It was entirely a spiritual message.
Not sure if it’s my place to say it, but how many American Jews especially liberal-voting Jews actually practice their Faith? It seems like most liberal Jews don’t even believe in God anymore and only celebrate the holidays.
Since you are not a Jew, maybe your blood doesn’t boil as fast as ours when it comes to the constant:
1) Jews are damned: We do not believe in their man-G-d
2) All Jews are stupid because they voted for Obama
3) Jews, Jews, Jews...they are totally preoccupied with us
But I will say this Z: No matter how conservative or libreal or whatever a Jew is, he is my brother....flesh and blood. I will support him, take care of him, teach him, whatever I have to do to help him....I will not throw him under the bus as other “beliefs” do to theirs. Just as ANY Jew will tell you, when you say the Shema you feel that surge in your vains that only a Jew can feel. That is what connects us....WE WERE THERE!
Librals Jews are some of the smartest and brightest people in this country. So DO NOT call them stupid. They just have some issues :)
Thank you. That was what I am all steamed-up about. It was a total spiritual get-back-to-the-torah message. Nothing to do about Obama or Jews voting habits....geez
“It seems like most liberal Jews dont even believe in God anymore and only celebrate the holidays.”
Can you please back this up or is this just your qualified opinion?
This is just my opinion or observation....I think most people especially Christian Conservatives feel if more Jews who hapepn to be secular or moderatley liberal would speak up on conservatism, it would be a force to be reckoned with...
Hollywood is mainly run by Jewish liberals, if they would embrace conservative principles that are the core of American life and Judeo/ Christian values, it could proably change the entire mindset of American Life...
I do not think it has anything to do with Anti-Semitism which is growing by leeps and bounds in Europe and the Middle East, but not here in the USA.....We have a growing population of secularism and atheism and they might have a Anti-Semite view, but that has more to do with religion as they hate Christians proably more than Jews because Christians are more vocal on societal issues like Gay Marraige and Abortion.
Anyway’s that just my opinion.....
But I will say this Z: No matter how conservative or libreal or whatever a Jew is, he is my brother...SO is your fellow human beings..GOD is a GOD of Love...He created all human beings in his image...
We are all brothers and sisters and children of GOD, no matter how much human beings want to seperate us..GOD does not..
The Shekinah Glory of GOD is Love, and if we deny our fellow human beings due to religion GOD will reject you.
In addition the fellow you call G-d Man was a Jew so it does seem you do reject at least 1 Jew my friend.
“Hollywood is mainly run by Jewish liberals”
You know better than that, Tara
I am just saying if Conservatives were the majority in Hollywood both Jews and I assume Secularists Gentiles, I think there are some Christians but they are far and few between...(I assume because many think who needs G-d when I have all this fame and money)
It would be a powerful message to the world who is enthralled with *Celebrity*
It is happening! Remember with the jews it is always a Holy Remnant. It has been estimated that 80% of Jews stayed in Babylon. So, it will most likely be with the USA.
But right now, there is more Torah learning going on in Israel than possibly ever! Within a generation, religious Jewish in Israel will be the majority and a majority in the IDF!
Liberal reform Jews or secular Jews are JINO's....Jews in name only and unless some tragedy befalls US Jewry....which it may!...it is unlikely to change. This is life in the galut (exile). Jews have always gotten to comfy in the galut.
The guy in the video is Elyokim Cohen. He is a person who has websites trying to convince nominal Jews to be baal teshuvas or returnees to the faith. He uses Absurdity a lot to make his points. Which in this case was effective!
Even though I'm not Jewish I must agree. For example take a look at a liberal "Jewish" college like Brandeis. From what I've heard "Students for justice in "Palestine" is one of the most popular clubs AMONGST Jewish students. I wouldn't be surprised if more Jews then Muslims are joining the pro-terror anti-israel clubs at their schools. Two months ago I was visiting my cousin who is a student at Swarthmore (another liberal college that supposedly has a large Jewish student body) and all I saw was anti-Israel and socialist propaganda walking down the halls. You can say this is the result of the liberal socialist education system all you want but I ask what are these liberal "Jewish" students learning at home? I am a Christian and if I came home from school with a copy of the communist manifesto my parents would've let me have it. Obviously the liberal Jewish students who support anti-semitic socialism (remember that many of socialism's founding philosophers like Marx and Proudhon called for the death of Jews) and the destruction of Israel aren't being told the truth by their families or community. Eliyokim's video is a good example of this.
On the same note, a little bird once told me that the number of Jews in America is heavily decreasing, not b/c of American Jews making aliyah but b/c most American Jews don't believe in God anymore and are marrying outside the faith and are choosing to raise their kids in secular homes. Is this true?
Hate to say this, but are you serious? Anti-semitism is growing in America more and more as the country drifts towards socialism. Like I said go on any liberal college campus and every hallway will be chocked full of anti-Israel propaganda from every end. And like I've said on here 9348242 times allready anti-semitism was part of socialism from the beginning. Jews threaten socialists b/c they work hard and are proud Americans and take personal responsibility. What's saddening is when Jews abandon their values and turn to the philosophies written by the very people who wanted to destroy them and now they vote for politicians who think the same way and want the destruction of Israel.
Yes it is true...there is a wake-up call going on but it remains to be seen if it will work. It may be too late. Who knows but G-d. This could be G-ds way of seperating the Wheat from the chaff or as Jews call it the "erev rav", which are remnants of the mixed multitude.
