I ask this because Jews will tend to argue they are not only God's children, the chosenites, but as such are a unique group or race. I don't hold with this preferring the case put forward by Koestler in The Thirteenth Tribe that the ashkenazi jews who account for 90+% of jews on the planet were 12th century converts to Judaism for various reasons. He makes a very good case which some don't hold with and say there is plenty of DNA evidence proving the claim that Ashkenazis are very close to jews of the middle east region. I say to that the data and evidence is probably corrupted by you know who.
Furthermore I wonder why the records for jews in the concentration camp system always seems to show them their race as jewish. In other words that if a group of Poles were listed in the record they would be shown as Poles (presumably Catholics) but jews are listed as jews and never Polish jew or French jew.
Only this week in the run up to the entertainment event of the year in UK, the General Election, the London Evening Standard ran a story about a young jewish man who had had it with hiding his jewish identity and was coming out fighting. Not that I give a shit really but rather than ignore a story about jews my curiosity got the better of me and I read it. Once again he used jewish as a race or an identity. Here's what he said and the link so you can read it if you are really bored and have time on your hands...
https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/esmagazine/how-it-feels-to-be-jewish-today-amidst-the-resurgence-of-antisemitism-in-the-capital-a4309986.htmlBeing a Jew in London has always been complicated.
I was born in Hackney, a place where the mix of cultures and ethnicities was part of who we all were, and where my Jewish mum and English dad raised a tall, blue-eyed boy who could still taste the shtetl in his Yiddish-speaking grandma’s chicken soup.
So why did he say that? he could, after all have said English mother of jewish faith but no he clearly identifies her as jewish only. I wonder what passport she holds because being jewish isn't a race group in terms of nationality and citizenship.
Whenever I discuss the holocaust people tend to ask why I hate the jews, I don't btw, and then they ask why Hitler hated them so much and why they have been persecuted over the centuries. Maybe the answer is that the jews brought the US into WW1 and thus helped defeat the Germans and they are so obnoxious and act so superior that they bring hatred upon themselves. The very act of claiming one's mother is Jewish as if that suffices for nationality and that jews were identified as jews only and never from a country in the camp system says much for why they wish to stand out and this is based on their own arrogance.
Any comments on the above would be welcome.
