    To PhariseeFriend (PF), Dovid and Sharon Shalom!

    PF you are being unfair here. The Yehudah (Jewish ) tribe never had power on any country since the Roman invasion… Many Islamic countries were welcoming of the Jews. Even in Iran the Jews are not treated badly that is false propaganda to divide peoples between them.

    Put the ultra-Orthodox in power and you will see how the actual state of Israel will be. I am for the straight line in morals not in the right nor the left. That is the way of Torah!

    The example of switching the light during Shabbat is surely an exaggeration of the commandments not to make a fire. At that time fire took work to be made. Now disturbing a passing pedestrian and ask him to switch the light on take more works than to switch the light yourself. Push this way of seeing the Torah and you will get a Taliban state…

    Eliyah!

    Hi Sharon,

    I wonder if you read the comment about Torah violation being permitted to save the life of an observant Jew OR righteous gentile, but limited in terms of saving a non-observant Jew or idolator etc. Sovyou could call that religious discrimination, but not ethnic discrimination.

    Rabbi Yisroel, I think that violent extremism exists among both Jews and Muslims. There are Jews who would happily stone a non-observant Jew, a Shabbat descecrating tourist, etc. and there are Jews who are violent towards Palestinians in a way that isn’t just self defense. That could be likened to Islamic terrorism at times. But there are many Jews and Muslims who see their co-religionists as brothers and sisters, and would be loathe to fight them.

    I know very observant Jews and Muslims who believe that all humans are valuable and that even those who don’t follow their religion can still relate to God. Many Muslims believe in holy war against governments in some circumstances, yet believe that terrorism is not in this category. The attitude of Jews and Muslims I know towards their own and towards others is conparable in my experience.

    National warfare in the Muslim world can be understood mostly in terms of human greed and hatred, as well as some cultural elements that aren’t based on religion.

    But sectarian violence is one thing that Jews seem less affected by.
