The Rabbi is talking to the Catholic Priest

PRIEST: Tell me Rabbi, in a moment of weakness did you ever have a ham sandwich.
RABBI: Well, Father, to tell you the truth indeed in a moment of weakness I did have a ham sandwich. But tell me Father, in a moment of weakness did you ever have sex.
PRIEST: Well, to tell the truth, I did in a moment of weakness have sex.
RABBI: I bet it was sure better than the ham sandwich.

Only a bigot would consider those numbers low. While I could reply that 2 out of 10,000 cases is a low percentage, the truth is even one case of racial discrimination in housing is one too many.
Overall, your responses to date show your bigotry. A bigotry spawned by your lack of respect for others in society. Thankfully, most Jews are willing to work for justice and civil rights in our society. And, I dare say based upon my relationships, most Poles too. You are an anachronism to your own country of national original.
I believe in property rights, and I think people have the right to rent out, or sell property to who they want.

What does government have the right, to tell you what to do in this case?

It is not murder, if Chinese would rather rent to Chinese, or Jews rent out to Jews.

Why is it not their right?

"Pope John Paul II was, without doubt, one of the greatest spiritual leaders and moral teachers of the post-Reformation era. He set an extraordinary example of personal integrity and courage, not only for his fellow Catholics but for people of every religious and philosophical viewpoint. Throughout the course of his pontificate he campaigned tirelessly for human rights and human dignity throughout the world. He practiced and inspired resistance to the great totalitarian systems and tyrannies that rose and, with his help, fell in the 20th Century. He fostered harmony between Catholics and Eastern Orthodox and Protestant Christians, reached out in friendship to Jews and members of other faiths, and warmly promoted interfaith understanding and cooperation.********He eloquently defended the right to life of every human being, irrespective of race or sex, age or size, stage of development or condition of dependency. And he dedicated himself to the defense of the weakest and most vulnerable members of the human family.*******

"On his visits to the United States, he called all Americans to be true to the great principles of liberty and justice inscribed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. His selfless service to [G-d] and man inspired Americans of all faiths and men and women of goodwill across the globe."

Eulogy by Dr. Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University for Pope John Paul II, f/k/a Karol Jozef Wojty&#322;a.[emphasis added]

Probably not

You know what I mean. There is no way to follow halacha, or base your practice on halacha, and not be a zionist. Its in the prayers.

Cults like lev Tahor and Nuteri Karta are cults, period. They have as much in common with Judaism as Branch Davidians had with Christianity

There will always be dissidents. Human nature

I agree it is in the prayers, but it still doesn't stop many Jews from being anti-Zionist. There is a wide range of observance between Reform and Orthodox.

I would argue that any synagogue going Jew is probably not anti-Zionist. There may be a diversity of views regarding the efficacy of the Israeli government for sure, but push comes to shove, to make that commitment to belong to a local Jewish community like that usually means a commitment to the idea of the state of Israel. It takes effort to belong to a synagogue.

Jews that are anti-Zionist are those that are more secular and unaffiliated (excluding the above mentioned cults of course).

I dont buy into the idea any more that there are reform, or conservative, or orthodox Jews. There are several fault lines. Between religious and nonreligious. Between observant and non observant. Between hebrew literate and non Hebrew literate. These fault lines are often independent of each other and cross denominations. The labels of reform, conservative, orthodox are holdovers from previous generations, Nowadays they dont mean much, in my experience.

The greatest suckers in human history are Christians influenced by Zionism. Not Judaism but Zionism. Jewish people are smart. The bad ones get a free ride and in the end the whole race or culture suffers for it. Interfering in others living is wrong. Inner city ghetto people will exterminate Jewish people even if they are on the same side. Jewish people do not like African Americans but will not admit to it publically but leave changing neighborhoods faster then anything processed to topix rights as we see here. Anti semitism is of hate. Questioning what goes on is normal!

Have you been anti goy longer? Maybe you should see the totalitarian state evolving here. And you know what? there are jewish people in government elected and not elected part of it. the ones who tell you how they suffered for thousands of years. Why should anyone go to camps that will be started here as the laws are passed to do so because of that? I know. Where does the bible stop at? Anti semite! There are jewish people whiter then albinos! p.s....I follow christian scripture. I just question people who bullchitt using it for fodder. And I don't want anyone to suffer in any way.
