Quoting empire state of mind:" If Israel gave up the disputed parts of Israel, do you still think that there would be as much hatred against the Jews?"


I do. It will never die. You give an inch, they take a mile...
And that's on both sides.

Then I would be a Jew? It's from my mom's side.

Yup. I don't think having dark hair and dark eyes automatically made one a target though. The Nazis had some messed up tests to "prove" one was of Jewish heritage (very heinous). If you passed the test, regardless of hair color and eye color, you would be part of the Aryan race. He killed of blonde, blue-eyed Jews as well.



No one was truly safe under Hitler's reign, even "Aryan" people who helped out the Jews were executed.

Quoting ~Ice Princess~:" Serious question but how is one considered a Jew? Like I obviously don't follow the religion, but ... [snip!] ... the fan. Her last name is still Schriber. So is part of my ethnicity still Jewish, but not my religion? Confused here :oops:"


the religious definition and true ethnic defintion is coming from a Jewish mother. But my husbands Dad was Jewish but he was raised Christian so he always says part of his ethnic background is Jewish. This is because for a long time Jews only married Jews and in the conservative communities it is still like this

Only if your mother's mother was Jewish. Since your mother got her name from her father then she wouldn't be, so neither would you. If I'm understanding what you're saying.

So if your grandmother was Jewish, then your mother is considered Jewish, and so are you. So you can go to Israel for free.

I didn't get to go to Auschwitz. I wish I could have. I went to Sachsenhausen. It was still incredibly moving.

My mom's mom has the last name Schriber from her dad. But her mom was "half" Jewish from her mom (my great-great grandma)...Native American/Scottish on the other side.

Assimilate a Jewish population? During WWII/Hitler's reign, even the US didn't want to accept Jewish immigrants.



Jews have assimilated to multiple countries, hence why there is a huge variety of Jews (German Jews, French Jews, Ethiopian Jews, etc), and yet people were still hateful towards them and tried to annihilate them out of existence.



Maybe I'm just a sympathizer, but after so many years of BS, they deserve their own nation.

I worded my question wrong in my head and thought someone had said Yes to a different question. My bad.

I meant to add, my mom's last name is Crockett (Scottish) from her dad. My grandma's last name is Schriber from her dad...but her mom was half Jewish (as well as her dad).
