We have now reached the conclusion of this series and before we wrap up it is fitting for us to put into perspective the ground that we have covered.

Note that we are following the Jewish calendar for these events (and not the Gregorian calendar which is at times 150 years at odds with Jewish computations). For more on this issue see Part 21.

allow me to be on your mailing list.

As a Christian I have always felt that we owe so much to your nation, for it was through you that God spoke and still speaks today. We love His own people and the nation. I hope that my stance as a Christian who weeps at the history of the many so-called christians who treated the Jewish nation so badly and so seeks your forgiveness, that you will allow me to be on your mailing list.

in your opinion, why have the jews been so persecuted over the years, and why are we still today? there are only 16[?] million of us and 1 billion of both christians and moslems. i have been jewish since birth and i never hated anyone, christian, moslem, black or white.

hate wears many hats

Its a pride thing. you got them better last time but don't ask me to define who "you" and "them" are because just like politics, the lines are blurred and messy.
