There is discrimination in this world to this day, there is discriminations against “people who are gay”. This discrimination is just like the Holocaust, because the Germans didn’t like the jews. I believe the gay marriage should have been approved long before it was. People need to realize judging someone because they are gay is wrong, that person is obviously an idiot. It is not up to people to judge other people because they are gay.
What initially struck me, while reading Hebrews, was the vitriol aimed against Israel. The author of Hebrews, after consulting the ancestors, posits Jesus as superior to angels, superior to Abraham, and superior to Moses (Hebrews 3:3-5). Additionally, because of Israel’s discord in the desert, their generation has passed away and will not be joined with God. It is easy for one who is unaware of the anti-Jewish rhetoric to interpret this as replacement theology. Hebrews 4:1 may be the worst of them all: Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest is still open, let us take care that none of you should seem to have failed to reach it.
To Jews, God is supposed to be welcoming and loving except when his laws are disobeyed. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and therefore were exiled from the gardens, but the Jews had done nothing wrong. Lazarus uses these allusions to express her confusion and frustration with the
I understand that the traditional Jewish theology of suffering is that God Is punishing the Jews because the Jews have done something wrong, however, I personally do not agree. I also understand the biblical Jewish theology is that the Jews are suffering because God is seeing how strong their faith is and if they have faith in God. I extremely disagree with the modern/ recent Jewish theology but I do understand where they 're coming from, the modern/ recent Jewish theology is all about humans having free will to do as they please and God is not all-powerful and cannot help us at all and that he could not stop the Holocaust. One of the Jewish approaches to the theology of suffering is that suffering is a punishment from god for something you have done wrong. In the film ‘Schindler 's List’ the character Amon Goeth beats his maid Helen and these are the last words he says to her while she stands silent, terrified, and helpless “Is this the face of a rat?
This infuriated Jabotinsky because he could not bear to witness the Jewish people undergoing through violence which could have been prevented if the British government would have created a blueprint of a Jewish State and allow the immigration of Jews into Palestine. This inhibited the Revisionist movement to view their movement as a solely national movement. Unlike other Zionist movements, the Revisionist promoted a militaristic approach in creating Jewish self-defense units which would focus in protecting Jewish
It would be unjust to pick and choose when our rights, specifically Freedom of Religion, can be exercised. Despite the fact that Muslims were responsible for the events of September 11th, limits should not be placed on all other Muslims just because a group of them did a bad thing. Slavery was a bad thing, should all white people today be held accountable for it? The Holocaust was a bad thing, should anyone with Nazi German Ancestry be held responsible? And so, the main point former Mayor Michael Bloomberg intended to make is that the harmful actions of a few should not be justification for the oppression of the
For example, ‘Kill all the Jews’ sounds a bit different from ‘Kill that Jew who gave my son an F’. At least to people who aren’t Jews can see the slight variation between the two statements. Meanwhile, a Jew doesn’t see any difference. It’s not that easy to really just go in and claim that something is a hate speech or not. There are too many variables to think about.
Elie Wiesel's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech included him talking about how he could not believe that the Holocaust had happened and the whole world just turned their backs. In the speech, Elie Wiesel states,¨ ‘And then I explain to him how naive we were, that the world did know and remained silent,’¨. Elie Wiesel is saying how the world knew about the Holocaust, but they just remained silent and did not say anything that could help stop it. This relates back to the thesis because no one had empathy and they just allowed this horrible thing to
It is unjust that anyone should die because they disagree with another’s political, religious or other views. Terrible events like the Holocaust and 9/11 could have been avoided if people stopped looking to extremism as the solution to all problems. When an idea had less pros than cons, it is only natural that it is discouraged. Extremism should only be resorted to in the most extreme situations that require it. So, go out and spread the message that there are other ways of achieving things than extremism.
The love that God had for the Jews were based on their honouring of the Covenant, if they did not live by the Ten Commandments then they would be deemed as sinners. The Buddha also did not try to “save every living being” but he only aided those who were “spiritually matured” and accepting towards his teachings (Dhammananda, 1987). Hence it is evident that the romantic love in Judaism and Buddhism is exclusive and can only be felt by those who are
In document B it says “they had more supplies and Jewish police. If your own people are watching over you are not gonna be afraid. The Jews did not want to believe that this horrific stuff was happening. The jews believed in god and they thought god would do no evil so they did not believe these things were happening. In page 7 of the book night it states that But people not only refused to believe his tales, they refused to listen.
In the novel, Night, Elie Wiesel presents numerous ways he and his family could have evacuated and not encounter torture and suffering. However, they decided not to believe that Hitler was capable of wiping out a worldwide population. “Thus my elders concerned themselves with all manner of things — strategy, diplomacy, politics, and Zionism —but not with their own fate. Who knows, they may be sending us away for our own good.” Some Jews believed that Hitler was trying to protect them from the War. Others thought that they were being taken away so that the soldiers could steal their valuables and jewelry.
Moment education On thing, I have to point out, however, is the book of matt also has a view on why this happened and while I think that the issue of tolerance and acceptance is a good subject.I think that the real problem is not Matthew Shepard it is the people themselves. They have this preordained idea that gays are bad and that because of this they have to fear them they can 't say why all they can say is that they don 't like it. It is kinda like the same reason that kids today have an immediate prejudice to germans because of what happened in the holocaust none of us have actually experienced it and very few of us have actually had anything to do with this event yet somehow we still have this connotation that Hitler is bad. This is because society has told us that Hitler is bad it doesn 't highlight the good he did or anything else other than Hitler bad man kills poor old jews.I find that this attitude while not entirely without reason exaggerates the qualities of both sides to the point. Kids today feel a hatred or sadness based on an event they might not know a dang thing about.
