    Where does your Jewish side originate from and what are your views on Israel?
    My Jewish side originates from my father. I think Israel (in its current form) is morally atrocious. I think Zionism is absolutely revolting: it's a counterproductive political ideology. It can be, and is, used to legitimate antisemitism. Moreover, Benjamin Netanyahu is swine and Israel's treatment of Palestinians, non-Zionist Jews, Muslims and Christians is almost as bad as the Nazis.

    Oh your dads the Jewish one eh? It's my mother who's Jewish and her mother is actually a Holocaust survivor who got to England in time so I do take pride in my Jewish roots - just not in a religious sense

    So are you one of the many Jews who support a free Palestine?
    Interesting. Most of my father's family was wiped out by Adolf too.

    In terms of Palestine/Israel: YES YES YES!!!!! See my reply to TheTruthTeller. #FreePalestine

    Firstly, if 'Jewish' was just a religion, surely those murdered in the Holocaust would have just said "hands off Adolf! I've converted to Christianity".

    Secondly, the Jews are an ethnic group associated with a religious faith.

    I'm not particularly clued up on the Iran nuclear deal I'm afraid. My Jewish side is Ashkenazi.

    The '' was clearly a way of light-heatedly reinforcing the typical stereotype attached Jewish people. OP didn't take it the wrong way so please take your ad-hoministic comments elsewhere.

    Didn't realise this was light-hearted so apologies. I knew the Jewish boy who got beaten up in Manchester so any apparent anti-semitism touches a nerve.

    Jewish women often have close together eyes and big noses yet are still sexually attractive (Sarah Silverman/Non-skeleton Amy Whinehouse/Janice from friends), is this because of some Jew magic?

    I understand. I apologize for typing it in a way that may have offended others. The hatred that some people have against Jewish people needs to be tackled effectively, and soon.

    Why must people always go to the Nazi's when talking about Israel?

    But Zionism isn't a Jewish thing, it is a political ideology. So how can it be used to legitimate antisemitism?

    Netanyahu is but one man, if it wasn't him it would be someone else do basically the same thing.

    How you can plus the Nazi's anywhere near the Israel state I don't know.
