breathtaking arrogance and historical inaccuracies

simple fact-check reveals that your key statement about Hitler is from a doubtful source. The extrapolation from it was a spider's web spun out of nonsense. The arrogance of your repeated claim that the 'national mission' of the jews is to teach the world how to be moral would be stunningly offensive if the example of the utter immorality of israel were not so omnipresent. btw, Thos. Jefferson thought Judaism was morally inferior.

Interested in learning about Jewish values

I am Latino, and although I am not Jewish I have a tremendous respect for Jewish people and the Jewish culture. When I went to U.C. Berkeley all my Jewish friends were always the most open minded and down to Earth people that I knew, and they never made me feel alienated for being Latino. Growing up Latino in the United States I have been repeatedly disrespected and alienated for staying true to my culture and my language, and whenever I excelled in anything, particularly academically, I could see the anger in the eyes of white Christians who could not tolerate that someone of a different ethnic group could do better than them. But I rarely got that treatment from Jewish people. On the contrary rather than jealous anger, I got respect. Some people argue that Jews have a lot of power because they have a lot of unity, and work together to lift them selves up. That Jews are responsible with money, and know how to effectively invest their money. And they say it as if though these were bad characteristics. I don’t see what the problem is. I wish Latinos could learn some Jewish values and work together rather than divided. Jews shouldn’t have to excuse themselves or clarify their culture to mindless people who are likely to ignore whatever they are told anyway. I am interested in learning more about Jewish culture values because I believe that these are values that Latinos can learn from.

the world hates the things of G-d

The world has always hated the things of G-d and His spiritual realm. Budhism, Confucius, and Islam, are followers of a prophet and a certain belief system. They do not claim to be on G-d's mission. Therefore they are acceptable to the world.

Ignorance creates fear

I think as humans we are in a constant state of competition. Like riding a two wheel bicycle,we need to learn how to balance ourselves between love and stimuli. We need to encourage people to accomplish the feat,without condemnation for falling off thebike!
