There aren't enough Jewish threads on here unless it deals with Palestine and Israel lol. Seems interesting though. Oh well I am straying too far off topic my bad.


The Torah is just the first testament of the Bible, so you probably know more about it than you think.

I studied some Judaic writings and Judaism in university so I might be able to help. What differentiates the Jews from Christians and Muslims is that their beliefs are very heavily centered around the prophet Moses. Judaism is very similar to Christianity, in fact Christianity could be called the fulfillment of Judaism. In Judaism they believe that there will come a Messiah. The difference is that Christians hold that Jesus was the Messiah, the Jews don't believe this. There are several sects in Judaism like Orthodox Jews, Reformed Jews, Conservative Jews, Humanist Jews, Reconstructed Judaism, and deistic Jews. They mainly center their beliefs around what Christians call the Old Testament. The Old Testament is the writings of the prophets. Islam, Christianity, and Judaism are similar in their moral structures, they are similar in the belief of monotheism (A belief that there is only one God), and they hold many of the same people to be prophets of God and believe in many of the same stories and accounts of how God has worked in the past. If you have questions about Judaism I'll try to help and answer them, although I'm not a Jew myself.

The Torah is the first five books of the first testament. The whole thing is the Tanakh.

My question is where does this hate for Jews come from? How come they were being persecuted and driven out of so many countries. It is just confusing to me because personally I have no ill feelings towards them and I am trying to see what will bring some kind of hate towards them out of me. How do you know if someone is a Jew if they don't tell you? Unlike racism where you can clearly distinguish them Jews can come in all races, shapes, sizes and color. You have to do something to someone for you to just up and hate them but if you all your doing is being innocent then why?


Anti-Semitism comes from Christianity. Many argue that the religion actually anti-Semitic. It grew throughout Europe and more recently the Middle East. It’s also present in Islam but only by people who take the Qur’an’s verses out of context.

Because of this?

Because Israel'a army rampaging in gaza and that makes the sentiment towards Jew really negative.
They don't have idea that the army are not the representative of Jew. Nor the country as well, it just because they're Jew's nation.

That's the misunderstanding, I think. Also I think Jew and Islam share some similarity in their teaching of religion, like 'no pig'

That conflict needs to be resolved in fact I believe that is the main problem causing all the problems/extremism in the middle east. Hate for all three religions is being stemmed there because of the actions taken by the people on both sides. I dont want to go into to much detail this isnt the thread for it but if things stay the same in that area the hate for the three religions will just grow. We all preach about peace but when it comes down to it we wont act. Lol I am sorry Seraph taking your thread off topic.

Well, it’s not active but I update upon request so it’s still a good source of information. I don’t think if you want a group activity it’s a good thing to join, but if you just want access to quick information it’s easily available by joining that group.

Yeah... this is just like the people who claimed Abe Lincoln had slaves... It's just propaganda and even with Jewish blood it does not make you Jewish. That would mean all of us are fucking Jews.
