As a Jew, I've encountered enough missionaries in my life (religious and atheist) to choke a horse. In fact, one incident with a missionary did lead to the death of a small pony but that's another story.
What I find ironic here is that his missionary zeal is focused on Jews. The only of the world's major faiths that doesn't care in what he believes.
In fact, that the missionary and I believe differently is a constant source of joy and comfort to me.
If we did agree it would cause me to reexamine my beliefs.
I think what was missing from your initial post was awareness of the target. I didnt (and neither did COR probably) realize it was directed at Yoda.
