A progressive feminist from the left went head-to-head with a hawkish Orthodox Jew from the right in a debate last night - and they had little in common beyond their gender.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Christa Case Bryant. WOW that must have been one heck of a debate. I'm rooting for the Labor Party myself. Read and noted.

My parents home and my home for a good part of my life before college,was torn down by orthodox Jews in New York, They have done this to many house in the neighborhood to house their enormous families in luxury, they look like palaces. I have no problem with this ,I miss seeing my house when I go to NY,but they lied to me while I was selling it. They told me they were going to rebuild and modernize it. I wanted the stained glass tiffany windows,whiich they scrapped,( they wanted $125 per window from me,as they said they would have to replace them....I still cry for the waste of art that I could have had.
That and they stole one of my Mom's checks in the mail, and are the most stubborn and hypocritical people.
One time while visiting my folks before they both passed, It was a Jewish holiday,they had cooked up a storm.and it was sweltering out. They kindly pulled me in from the street and asked me to turn on their air conditioning something about a shabbas goy.
Noted,thanks Cal ( I know this only pertains to the glatt kosher eating ,wig wearing (another hypocrisy) chapter of Jews.

Tasunka, I don't have a problem with someone who has a problem with specific individuals of certain religions, races or ethnic backgrounds. But I do take issue with anyone stupid enough or bigoted to cast or imply all people of a particular faith, race or ethnic background in the same negative light just because you allowed yourself to be taken advantage of by these particular individuals.

Debates like these only prove to me that war is always about territory, not religion.

Oy would I like to have been a fly on the wall. LOL
Tasunka, I find that regardless of race, creed, color or religion there are good and bad in all peoples and nations. Unfortunately the bad are generally in the minority but due to their violence and ultra negative behaviors draw the most attention away from the majority who are generally good people. Just remember, karma's a bitch.
Look at where you are now. Keep the faith sister; just don't keep it to yourself. Hah!

Noted. Reading the article, it seems the parties have such various stands on the issues that no wonder the people are confused about who they're going to vote for. They've mixed military might with religion and thrown in women's issues to boot. As an "outsider" here in the US, I agree with what one said on an issue, but disagree on another...same with the other candidates. Sounds like they're mimicking US politicians....
