More information on this subject please.

I have not heard of this group "FEAR". I was asked once by a Rabbi, "What kind of Jew are you...?" My answer was and is that I am not a Secular Jew. I am a Jew as Moses is a Jew. The power of G-d delivered us (me) the Torah through Moses. I accept the Torah as the True Words of G-d with its Commandments and Statutes; that, I must speak of when I rise of a morning till I go to bed at night, that, I must follow these Commandments guiding neither to the right or the left. I am not a liberal Jew. One of my friends says I am a Conservo-dox. All I know is that I want to become the same type of Hebrew Moses was and the type of Jew he became through the study of the Torah. I was once in combat for almost 3 years, therefore, I say it is not good for Jews to make war with one another because G-d will turn His Face from us as he has done before; less, we will not continue to be a Nation any longer. Pray with and for our adversaries for they say my G-d is also theirs. My prayers are that we might both understand the goodness and the wrongness in my thinking in such matters. G-d will intercede if we cannot talk to each other to resolve these issues. If it happens that G-d must intercede, neither of may enjoy the outcome.

Not Again!

If there is one thing the Jews don't need, it is more bad publicity. Just when the Bernie Madoff "black eye" seemed to be fading, this "mishuganah" group has to stir the pot one more time. I wish the news media would focus on all of the wonderful ways the Jewish people have made the world a better place for all.

A call to spiritual discernment.......................

This you can say is bad publicity. If you spiritually discern what is happening, it is a call to prayer for the Jewish people as in Psalm 122:6. Now, people take offense too much nowadays where people want to be politically correct. So by saying that, calling a spade a spade has NOTHING to do with african-americans. It simply is saying: This is the situation, so don't put a "spin" on it and say it's something else. I grew up in the 50's and 60's and I know that term. This is not what he meant. need to look at things the way God see's them.....and please don't take offense.

Calling a Spade a Spade

Mr. Solomon is apparently unaware that the terminology "calling a spade a spade" has acquired a pejorative connotation. The following is from The phrase predates the use of the word "spade" as an ethnic slur against African Americans, which was not recorded until 1928; however, in contemporary U.S. society, the idiom is often avoided due to potential confusion with the slur.

It's our job to fight ignorance, not pander to it.

The term "calling a spade a spade" predates AMERICA, never mind African Americans. Ignorant people believe all kinds of things - it's up to us to educate them. Another term that people are afraid to use,"rule of thumb", has nothing to do with wife-beating. It actually dates from Edward I where a "thumb" was used as the rought equivalent to one inch. You'll still find people telling you it "oppresses women" though! lol
