Hitler made Judaism as a race with his idealogy and racial purity program. Before that it was just a religion.
It is kinda sad that after WW2 judaism has been treated still as a race, sure it is not hereditary but usually goes back for generations. There are commercial DNA tests in Israel to verify peoples jewishness basicly ashkenazi roots, according Bible Aškenaz was great grandson of Noah.

So genealogy claims of Noah as a ancestor is not unusual as studies has proven that almost all Europeans have common ancestor Charlemagne LINK
So those days earth was not so populated as today and in Noah´s times it was even less populated.. so most likely we all go back to Noah.

The simple answer is: Judaism is a religion of identity.

A Jew is a person identified as, and accepted by, Jews as being Jewish. The easiest way to be accepted as such is if one's mother is accepted as Jewish. It really helps if her mother is also among the Jewish.

Jews may run the full spectrum of beliefs about the gods, from full atheist to full polytheist, doesn't matter. As long as other Jews accept them as Jewish it's all cool.

In times past, when numbers were few, conversion was encouraged and facilitated. Other times not so much; many hurdles and obstacles.

As for the Woopie Goldberg matter: She's American and not European. The U.S. never had a history of official Jewish disability (no citizenship, no property ownership) such as Europe did from the Fourth Lateran Council (1215) until well into the 1700s (1800s in some countries).

So when the word emancipation is heard by Americans, they think of freeing slaves and allowing them to be full citizens of the U.S. When Europeans hear emancipation, they may very well think of the Jewish Emancipation.

Wikipedia has a very good write-up: Jewish Emancipation



nice post.

This stuff is hidden right in front of you G, you know the big players, they all cry Israel, Trumps coat of arms is Dan, that's why Kanye said they have dragon blood, its there in front of your eyes, study the old testament, it said the 12 tribes will be scattered across Israel, with many into wilderness (simeon), 144000 virgins may be those that are in the wilderness and are trapped within the illusion with no knowledge that they have been set apart

The Western war, Trump, Clinton, Biden, Putin, Merkel, Johnson... All the way back through thousands of years, One Family has been deceiving the world

Nothing is real

And I think I may be one of them

The Jews of Israel believe they are the superior race of humans, the chosen ones.

Sounds similar to another group that most of the world fought against a few decades ago.

not true.
as Ketsuko said, there is a Jewish religion, and a Jewish ethnicity / race / people.
incredible they were able to maintain their identity in exile for twenty centuries.

That’s because there are genetic markers distinct to the Eastern European Jewish population, partly due to a population “founder effect,” a way of saying that they descend from a small number of ancestors. Also, Jews in Europe tended to marry other Jews, making them endogamous.

“Jews were not allowed to intermarry,” Risch said. He added that on top of that, there were other external factors; for centuries, Christian churches forbade their flock from marrying Jews.

Ashkenazi Jews share a genetic profile so distinct that even commercial tests can spot it, unlike the difference between, say, Italians and Spaniards, who share a more diffuse Southern European profile.

In the US there was shift in attitude about it all. Jews were very much considered a minority and discriminated against for that status, even here, up until the '60s. Even though the US never had official anti-Jewish policies to rival Europe, it is also known that policies of the US government to disallow Jews to flee to to the US from Europe during the the run up to WWII certainly contributed many Jewish deaths.

It was similar to today's Christians in hardline Muslim countries where they are openly persecuted seeking asylum and being denied only worse in that the Germans were rounding them up and putting in camps like the Chinese are with Uyghers.

But with the rise of victimhood, we had two minorities and two victim groups (there were others, but blacks were the ones vying for the title of most oppressed). So during the '60s Civil Rights movement, you had this shift away from thinking of Jews as a minority or ever having been oppressed because of the reasons you site when they did face discrimination and even persecution in this country, and they really do remain a minority today in actual percentage totals.

Plenty of groups who have come to this country have faced discrimination for one reason or another.

Judaism is a religion. A religion that was still successfully recruiting into medieval times (mostly in eastern Europe). Almost all of world Jewry descend from these converts and don't appear to have any credible claim to being a semitic people. There would appear to no evidence any mass-migration took place from Palestine

The appearance of Zionism in the nineteenth century is a curious phenomenon. An authority of some kind decided upon it and as is the case with most establishment declarations, it is widely accepted by the majority of subjects. I'm not sure why some Europenas would want a state in the desert of the Levant, unless it was as an act of antagonism against Islam.

It should be remembered that entities within Britain, were behind the formation of the state of Israel; as they were the Saudi regime and the state of Pakistan.

Once a nation is conquered, it is common to re-write it's history books and some obscure claims state that the events Old Testament are actually from the British Isles and that Christianity originated there, was of huge political significance and was the reason for the Roman invasion. This would connect to the conflict that arose between the Catholic church and there allies the Templars, which took place after they visited the 'holy lands'.

Jerusalem disappeared from maps and was then 're-discoverd' in the middle of Constantine's eastern Roman empire. This was after Constantine spent many years in Britain. Jerusalem has no Temple Mount - some argue that the Temple Mount is Edinburgh castle. Some think that the Templars built Rosslyn chapel on the site of Christ's crucifixion.

Without going on too much and going too far off-topic, the abrubt arrival of ancient Greece from nowhere is worth considering and also the claim that Atlantis ran from Gibraltar to the Hebrides and had white cliffs.

Scotland gets it name from Scota - the daughter of pharoah Akhenaten. One claim says he was the Pharaoh that pursued Moses; one says he was Moses. It would appear the he pushed for monotheism in Egypt; Moses was an agent of montheism.

The word Gypsy comes from Egypt. The Nazis disliked both Gyspies and Jews.

Interesting stuff.

Why not? Think about it. Most of those European states had tacitly allowed Germany to carry on with what they were doing for a good long time. Most of them knew things were getting worse and even murderous for Jews under Nazi rules, but they did and said nothing because they weren't sympathetic themselves.

So after the war, they said, "Sorry, not sorry." in effect by creating the Jewish state on a tiny sliver of land surrounded by enemies. It was never supposed to last, but it did. Jews got lucky and were far more militarily tenacious than the Europeans thought they would be. Otherwise, it would have been the perfect way to get rid of them without looking like you were.

This *is* a conspiracy site, and I think the European powers were trying to use the creation of Israel to ditch the Jewish problem once and for all.

If Judaism is a "Race", then DNA studies would have determined a total distinction in genetic makeup.

Where are these studies and claims ?????? 😎

You have a wrong point. Christians were not allowed to marry jews ( not because of racial view ), Catholic church forbid cos Christ was murdered by the jews.

The synagogue of Satan;
Those who claim to be Jews but are not jews are Zionists holding public office positions in Israel.

Jews practice a religion while Zionists practice political ideology.

It was a big argument back in the day.
Dual citizenship divides loyalty....

Zionists administering forced jabs in Israel, are attacking the Jews where they live.

Synagogue of Satan, tangible threat hard to deny these days.

...Judaism a religion or a race ?


Jews/Judaism is a Tribe of 'Adamic humans''...

the Jewish Tribe however was the only group of Israel people to keep Offically the religious rites/covenant with the monotheistic God...

...and then was set aside as being the group chosen (from all the 12 Israel Tribes & world wide Goyim) to bring forth the Messiah from the blood-line/Tribe of King David

the term 'chosen people' is/was not to be inferred as being 'superior' but to have been 'set apart' for their honoring their promise...

"Under Jewish religious law (halakhah), a person is Jewish if they are born to a Jewish mother, even if they themselves are not religious, or if they convert to another religion."

"Also, as a matter of law and custom in the United States and Israel, they are both."

Does it matter? If being Jewish is a race or not? I think we spend too much time focusing and categorizing all of us.

People are people. Some believe things differently. Some don't.

If we spent as mucch time and energy looking at what we all have in common instead of what differentiates us, I think we'd all get along much better.

My 2 cents.

It's a religion and a race. If you're Jewish and take the 23andme or Ancestry genetic test, your genetic profile will show that you have an Ashekenazi Jewish gene. I have that in my genetic profile.

The religion is the original Abrahamic religion from which Islam came as well.
