haha there you go, your automatic knee-jerk reflex of calling someone an anti-semite just because they argue with you. Its really getting old and holds no water. I just told you, I did not get it from a Nazi website, I got it from YOUR Talmud. Stop with the anti-semitism really, it's getting worn out.

I don't agree with your explanation but that is your right and respect it. Since you explained it rather well, then now explain to me the Pandera excerpts about Jesus and Mary.

Actually the quote and bogus interpretation appear on many islamo/nazi leftist websites.
Do you even understand what the Talmud is?

Of course I do, the Babylonian Talmud and the Jerusalem Talmud. Books of Rabbinic traditions like those of Rabbi Eleazar and Rabbi Maimonides. Or am I wrong?

Who were the Talmuds written by, and why?
Why are there two?

Maimonides commented on talmud and wrote Mishneh Torah (among other things, he was quite prolific)
The Jerusalem Talmud is also known as the palestinian Talmud (Why? the "palestinians" were the Jews living there)

Bill, Jewish scholarship was oral as you should well know. Rabbis discussed and debated the Tanakh orally. I was not until 70 C.E. after the destruction of the Jewish commonwealth, oral tradition could no longer be sustained and written accounts of debates were recorded. I believe Rabbi Judah haNasi was the the first to author the Mishnah, one of the two components of the Talmud, the other being the Gemara which came later. There were probably some earlier Midrashic texts previous to the Mishnah, but they were not organized as the Mishnah was and as such, the Mishnah became the framework for the Talmud.

The Jerusalem Talmud, mainly redacted by Rav Muna and Rav Yossi came first and the Babylonian came later, redacted mainly by Rav Ashi and Ravina. As you know, in Babylonia there were also many Jews after their exile around 580 BCE and they too wrote down their traditions.

You can enlighten me on the rest.

I have an honest question, what is the difference between you and the Naturei Karta Jews. Why do you differ amongst yourselves? It is a respectuful honest question I would like for you to answer. Are they not Jews too? They say they are true Jews.

I believe Ziggy said love is his religion. I dont recall him saying,"Judaism is my religion." Why do people make such ridiculous speculations?

No other religion on Earth has managed to last 3,000 years while many other religious groups are doing everything they can to kill or control us. I am seaking of Christinaity and Islam. Without the intervetion of G-d we would not be here today.
