    I think it is a sad indictment on the cognitive thought processes of people in our society, that most of us (including me) opened this thread expecting to find an anti-Semitic rant haha
    I agree. I also hate how it is become the norm. to use "Jew" as an insult.

    Hello,

    I personally believe it is best to not compare Jewish people who believe in God and believe the Tanakh is true with Jewish people who do not believe in God who insult those who do. That is possibly one reason why many Jewish Orthodox people are not incredibly vocal about their beliefs: because of being used to being insulted and persecuted. Sad to say, many groups have persecuted Jewish people who believe in God for centuries. Horribly, "Christians" have persecuted Jewish people who believe in God and have force converted many, killed many, insulted many, and treated many Jewish people (both those who believe in God and those who don't) in a very rude and mean way.

    I personally don't think Jewish Orthodox people allow themselves to be psychologically harmed by the insults of Jewish people who don't believe in God, as well as Christians. However, i do believe many are not as vocal about what they believe because of all the abuse they have suffered at the hands of people who don't believe like they do.

    Peace and may God help everyone to live in peace, regardless if they believe in God or not, regardless if they are "secular" or what group of belief in God they have.
    Bit of a strange comment. As if it were secular jews who were spitting on and abusing ultra-orthodox women on the streets of jerusalem, rather than the other way around.

    As if it were the ultra-orthodox Jews who tried the obliterate Yemeni Jewish culture, remove them from Judaism and (possibly) kidnap their children. We can play this judgmental c*** on the actions of a few all day.

    Or we could not spread completely groundless, disproven conspiracy theories. just a thought, mind.

    Checked up Wikipedia did you? Only the kidnapping part was exaggerated (though not disproven). Still, there was great anti religious sentiment at the time and the Yemenite Jews suffered from it.

    I said the actions of a few - that was my initial point. The aggressive effort to assimilate them into secular society is known.
    And yes, I will backtrack on the kidnapping (even though it wasn't disproven as you said).

    Your still missing the main point, you were judging the entire ultra-orthodox community (of which, the religious Yemeni Jews are part of) on the actions of a few. Ultra-orthodox =/= fanatic/crusader/extremist.

    Hello Rac1,

    I'm not Jewish. The best way for the OP to obtain research for the paper is by talking to Jewish people concerning their beliefs and differences.

    Peace and God bless you
    No, I know I just don't actually know anyone that is and you were the closest

    peace

    or even shalom
