Praising Jews

I wanted to ask all my readers who have blogs to write an entry praising Jews. The goal here is not to put forward arguments againt anti-semitism, nor to denying hating Jews. It is simply to show moral clarity on the issue of praising Jews.

It is commonplace to say things like, "That movie rocked." But most people will refuse to say "Jews rock." I think this is perverse, and we should stand up for our values.

Leave a comment or email me if you do it, and I'll keep a list.

PS Jews rock.

This is ridiculus. While your at it, you might as well create a Jews Love Us site like this: Black People Love Us

I happen to think the way people refuse so adamantly is ridiculous. (well maybe that's not quite the right word...)


Elliot at 4:43 PM on November 25, 2003 | #192

Pat,



If Elliot created a 'Jews Love Us' site, it wouldn't work as satire. There is no state-supported affirmative action for Jews, there are no quotas. The only such positive discrimination in favour of Jews as far as I know is an easier route to citizenship of Israel. (That's one of the reasons Israel was established in the first place, following The Holocaust.)



The politically correct anti-racist campaigners hold the *same theory* as overt racists, that is, they believe that certain racial minorities can't compete in society. Some are no doubt well-meaning, the rest are hypocrites with vested interests. Fortunately they seem to be disappearing here in the UK.

>There is no state-supported affirmative action for Jews, there are no quotas



I could be wrong about this. I don't know much about the college system in the US, for example.



But I stand by the rest of my comment :-)

if affirmative action mentions jews i've never heard of it. and i'm sure it doesn't. we have separation of church and state, and count jew as a religion.


Elliot at 7:28 PM on November 25, 2003 | #195

Tom,



I do not see where the satire of the Black People Love Us site has anything to do with government sponsored affirmative action. It is about the implicit affirmation actions done unconsciously by one race to another, which can happen just as easily to Jews as Blacks.


Pat at 8:26 PM on November 25, 2003 | #196

jew is not a race, it's a way of living.


Elliot at 8:28 PM on November 25, 2003 | #197

It is also a race.


Pat at 10:58 PM on November 25, 2003 | #198

is this some new definition of 'race' where you can be two at once, and can convert?


Elliot at 3:14 AM on November 26, 2003 | #199

Your confusing Judaism the religion with the Jewish ethnic identity.


Pat at 9:16 AM on November 26, 2003 | #200

You're confusing moonbats the toy with moonbats the commies.


Elliot at 9:51 AM on November 26, 2003 | #201

What if I've already done something similar before, does that count? :-P


Camille at 1:42 PM on November 26, 2003 | #202

Pat,

>done unconsciously by one race to another



I think you've put your finger on exactly why 'Black People Love Us' is so amusing.



The anti-racist police gain power by exploiting the false theory I mentioned above. They're able to do that because many ordinary whites also hold the theory and compound their error by taking on an unearned *guilt*, perhaps for historical reasons. They are crypto-racists who sense some kind of obligation. The satirists on the site act out outrageous and exaggerated attempts to quell the guilt.



>which can happen just as easily to Jews as Blacks



There's no sign of that. Like I said, there's no positive affirmation for Jews. Quite the reverse, there are arson attacks going on around the West (except in Israel where the idiotic bastards tend to stick to bombings). Plus there's the Left's pretty successful attempts to falsely brand Israel as an apartheid South Africa. In contrast to crypto-racism, antisemitism is based on unjustified *fear* that the Jews are somehow inherently superior. This is another false theory arising from precedent and from the true observation that many Jews are well-educated, well-connected, rich, and (yet) humane.



In all cases, what people should be trying to do is adopt the best ideas and morality from whichever sources, so they can maximise their own personal success and happiness.


Tom Robinson at 5:21 PM on November 26, 2003 | #203

Tom,



I agree with all that you say here.



What I meant to imply was that randomly proclaiming "Jews Rock" is a form of the implicit affirmitive action being satired on www.blackpeopleloveus.com. So I suppose I did get it wrong in my original post, it wouldn't make sense for Elliot to create such a site. Someone else needs to create the www.jewsloveus.com site with a bunch of JEWS ROCK!!! references.


Pat at 5:53 PM on November 26, 2003 | #204

It's not random. I asked because I suspected people would refuse. Not just refuse, but be outraged. I was right...



Jews die daily, for being Jews, but shows of support are ridiculous. Riiiiight.


Elliot at 6:59 PM on November 26, 2003 | #205

It's not random. I asked because I suspected people would refuse.



Oh I see, this was a litmus test. You wanted to find out who is moral and who is not. Did anyone pass your test? Or is everyone immoral scum?



Not just refuse, but be outraged.



Damn right!



I was right...



You were correct that people would refuse, but you are not right.


Pat at 7:52 PM on November 26, 2003 | #206

Sorry maybe that was misleading. It's not *just* a litmus test. I stand by it.



did anyone pass? yes. http://eleganceagainstignorance.blogspot.com/

others in private.


Elliot at 8:32 PM on November 26, 2003 | #207

I wonder if I passed. I did not write "Jews rock", but I did happen to post on the subject a few times:

"Jews rock" sounds silly to me but maybe I'm too old or something ;-)


Alice at 2:49 PM on November 30, 2003 | #208

as a jew i do not consider myself a superior race most of my firneds are christain and ararb and oriental i dont think i am better than them i dont aprecieate people thinking that we believe we are superior i am very ofended (do you ever see any jews with stikers that say WWMD (what would moses do) or moses rocks but u do see (WWJD) or Jesus Rocks! on bumber stikers (i am not sugesting you stop, the stikers just mean you are proud of your religion), as a religion we stik to ourselves . "jew" is not a race although hebrew is (also a language )

we dont need people, or ask people to say "jews rock " but i believe that some of you may have distorted images of jews . i am curently trying to learn as much about ohter religions beliefs as i can i sujest you ask your friends of other religions about beliefs and gain knowledge . P.S. all of my family is pure jewish with all of my ancestors comeing from isreal and some of them even escapeing the holocaust and even we dont think we are superior to any other people

aaron the jew at 5:19 PM on January 27, 2004 | #210

Aaron,



You seem like a good person to me. Would you agree?



Also, there's bad people in the world, right?



Aren't you better than bad people?


Elliot at 5:50 PM on January 27, 2004 | #211

I find if i try it that way, it really works.

Jews do ROCK!!!

per capita, Jews have the most nobel-prize winning scientists.

i did some quick checking years back. here's what i found.

compared to Arabs, Jews have 1,000 times more nobel-prize winners per capita. There are 100 times more Jew nobel-prize winners than Arab ones. And there are 10 times more Arabs than Jews.

i thought that people might wonder why there are 10 times more Arabs than Jews. it's because Jews didn't conquer other cultures while Arabs did. Arabs originated in Saudi Arabia. They conquered a huge area of land. Those conquered people are now called Arabs. Jews never did that.

also because most Arabs are still Muslims and with that comes culturally-engrained ideas for having more children, like 5 or 10. they think Allah will provide wealth to take care of them.

Jews have a worldview that is much more connected to reality. so they have fewer kids. and they become great people.


(i'm gonna blog this. i'll prolly wait to get some feedback on it first.)
