  •  What really cracks me up about this (18+ / 0-)

    is how they love us - until they hate us. They have a version of Jews in their heads that they derive from their skewed reading of the OT, then when real Jews don't conform to what they think we should be (trans:convert) they haz tantrums.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)

    •  The creepiest thing (4+ / 0-)

      is the way the fundamentalist Christians embrace Israel - not because they feel solidarity with a Jewish homeland or want to make sure that Israel is a viable and powerful nation, but because they want the Temple to be reconstructed and hasten the apocalypse.  They want "End Times".  They never gave a flying f--k about the Jewish people as people... only as actors in what seems to me one of the creepiest and really obscene beliefs of any major religion.

      It's both about trying to convert the Jews, but also this really sick desire to see everyone who doesn't ascribe to their twisted, sick faith suffer when a vengeful Jesus bestrides the earth, condemning those who don't believe to eternal damnation.
