My sister managed to trace our ancestry back more than 400 years in England. For some strange reason I feel that ones roots are more important than which religeon you subscribe to.
How could it be possible that I feel influenced more by dead ancestors than a living God?
Jewish rebellions crushed by the Roman Empire in Cyprus, Cyrene, and Egypt show that they had a very large population in the Eastern Mediterranean. Perhaps had Christianity and later Islam not been promoted, the Jewish faith might have in fact won over the masses in the Eastern Roman Empire. This would have been a slower process though as the Jewish faith in general did not seek converts. They certainly were also very significant in the Arabian lands to the south-east of the Roman Empire.
first, pardon my rude language.
"Does anyone? Knowing about one's roots is great, but finding out about oneself is constantly changing, depending on one's circumstances, right?"
- right! and wrong - it's up to you to decide what you want.
the second part of the definition is: "who keeps true to the Faith and Laws of the Holy Bible (Five Books of Moses), and to the Land of Israel" - is it for you? it's up to you to decide.
i was thought in the soviet navy - well worth were the four years of draft:
make up your mind once and follow! don't dangle like [s***] in an ice hole.
Seems this is a good question for the Bible itself, They are the apple of his eye you know.
In Roman Times, the term "Jew" [Iudaea] was Never a Religious Term, it refers to People that Live in Judea , regardless of Religion, if you Lived in Judea and worshiped Zeus, you still count as a Jew
British is to Britain and Jewish is to Judea, In 135AD, Emperor Hadrian renamed "Judea" to "Syria Palaestine" thus the "Jews" became the "Palestinians" , that means the "Jews" are the "Palestinians", and
now "Foreign People who Follow the Torah" are now Occupying that the land, and they names it "Israel", if they where to restore the "Judea" identity, they should of reverted the name to "Judea"
The Tribe that was "Judah" and the other 11, are "Extinct", they all Spread outwards, interbred with everyone Else, the only way to be 100% Jewish is to Interbreed, and the only people that do such thing, are
the Royal Families, interbreeding Elite - http://www.cai.org/files/images/them...mage001-en.jpg - [Do you really Want Prince William to be King of Israel]
They are 6 Billion People on Earth, if all those Accepted the Jewish Faith, that is 6 Billion People Claiming the Land of Israel - How does that Work Out?
The problem is, people read the Torah incorrectly as Prophetic Literature, instead correctly as Historical Literate, they think Israel is THERE Promised Land, it was ALREADY Promised, and The Kingdom of Israel Appeared, but that is now Dissolved, deceased
The Promised Land is NO MORE, DEAD
And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes: because they obeyed not the voice of the Lord their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded and would not hear them, nor do them. (II Kings 18:11-12)
Its Right there in the Book of Kings, there is NO Promise land.
Even if the land is no longer promised you have to face the fact that the Jews are still there after 3000 years. If Israel is willing to open its doors to converts then that's also fine because it is their land so they can make the rules.
Arab countries can deny rights to women, gays, people of other denominations etc. etc that's their right. They can also slaughter any citizens who demand a voice to be heard, that also seems to be one of their rights too. Just because Jews are prospering in a land that you believe is no longer promised there is really no need to get so upset.
Live with it. They are, and doing very well indeed.

Get back to writing your fiction on a Leftist site. They are more gulible than the people around here.
I am not a Holocaust Denier, its like saying you a 9-11 Denier, Hitler was a Catholic, and the term "Nazi" [nasi]
The Romans recognised the nazi as Patriarch of the Jews, and required all Jews to pay him a tax for the upkeep of that office, which ranked highly in the Roman official hierarchy.
Its not the Fault of Ordinary People
