I'm calling you what you are: An arrogant little putz.

Do you think Israel survived in a vacuum?

Some of those you despise so handily in nonsensical blabber like "We are the chosen, they are not. As the Talmud says, the Goyim are more similar to animals than to humans." also support Israel and its military on a regular basis politically, morally, and monetarily.

How about this gem: "Judaism is the truth. All other religions need to be destroyed." Well, smart man: I happen to be an evangelical Christian, yet you want to destroy me and others like me? I spent 11 1/2 years in the US Marines and am probably twice your age, so try it and see where that gets you.

Those are just 2 examples culled from the barrage of horse manure posted in the last 24 hours. Don't even dare using the ruse of "Hello, sorry my English is not that good..." either! I'm not interested in hearing such lame excuses nor are a number of others around here. Consider my reply as fair warning. I give that only once, so it would behoove you to heed this: Keep exhibiting diarrhea of the mouth around the forum and you'll regret it. Big time.

Strength, definitely.

Putting politics aside is fine but it does sideline influential factors like say, USSR believing the Kibbutz model would make Jews pre-disposably favoured towards them (a goodwill lacking in their domestic policy towards Jews) or Muftis in Russia/CIS nations having a rather structurised system to the extent of official promotions in Spirtual Directorates etc.

We may disagree about who Messiah ben David really is, but one thing that I know for sure is that, many Xtians, especially those that support the nation of Israel, look forward to bending our knees to Him when He comes. Believing that we goyim are grafted into the commonwealth of Israel through Yeshua (Yahushua) does in no way mean that we replace Israel. Replacement theology is a lie from the pit. The sad issue that remains is that it seems that many of the Xtian goyim love and support the existence of Israel, while many of the orthodox Jews in the US don't. Some of the more orthodox view Israel as an anathema and offer vocal opposition to her exisitence, while many goys on this forum like me view the present state of Israel as the beginning of the fulfillment of the prophesies given in Ezekiel 37. Despite our differences, Israel is the center of my attention and prayers on a daily basis. Am Yisrael Chai!!!

I would have chosen "other".

With me, it's just G_d and me... no "religion" as man defines it today. It's all relationship... given and afforded me (a Gentile) by the Jews and Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

  • I believe in the Father (G_d of Abraham, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit).
  • I believe the bible (Old and New Testaments) is the infallible, perfect and eternal (without end) Word of G_d to men.

In addition to that? It's relationship... everything comes from the relationship that lives with me... any day I can successfully give myself over to it.

So? There that is...

You would have to have seen the things I have seen and experienced the things I have to fully understand. If I tried to just tell it all most would not believe me and I would not blame them because if I had not personally been there I would not believe it either. I have literally seen Death’s Doorway and things in the Spiritual Realm. Death holds no fear for me any longer. I have seen past the curtain and only joy waits. I do not hate my enemies but only feel sorry for their fate which is theirs by their own free will. If all mankind would open their eyes, ears, and minds to G_d, He would gladly answer them but they must humble themselves before Him. It is not an easy thing to live “not my will but yours G_d”! It is not about how many times you stumble and fall but about how many times you get back up. If you are willing, He will reveal Himself and the Truth to you. But you have to be willing because G_d sees every thing inside you and you can’t hide even the smallest dark thing from Him. It is while scary, the most freeing thing you can ever do and then let G_d lead you. I was most undeserving of his mercy as a lost Goyim full of hate and anger toward mankind. Yet G_d showed me what I needed most when I needed it most and set my feet on a different path. People that knew me then would not understand the person I am now and I only have G_d to thank for that!
I understood every word of that...

And I don't have a problem believing it, neither.

Default wow how exciting this read has been

Since the poll is closed I choose other I believe in one G_D Creator of Heaven and Earth of ALL that is Seen and Unseen. Period.
I believe in Ancient Alien theory (my favorite show on TV)

I really enjoyed reading all the posts

I lived in the New Imperial Hotel just inside the Jaffa Gate of the Old City for 5 months from the beginning of May to the end of September of 1997 and spent most of my time getting to know the locals in all of the 4 quarters eating with, smoking with drinking coffee with, playing chess with and even praying with and the biggest lesson I came away with was: Despite all of our political, religious, ethnic and cultural differences we are all human creatures created by G_D and if we hold to HIS Teachings and Revere Him it shows in how we treat each other by how we act and by what we say to each other as we go about our daily lives.
I left Israel with the understanding and belief that how I worship G_D best is by how I treat my fellow man or woman and G_D knows how often I fall short when applying these lessons like we all do from time to time.
For the most part, most of the time, Islam, Judaism and Christianity Live, Work, Play and Pray next to each other and side by side all in the confines of a small walled city in spite of all the distractions of this crazy world around them.
This is the Blessing of and Glory of Israel. and that which is Jerusalem.

Dear 717:

I have met your "Ancient Aliens" face to face; they are not new to mankind. They have deceived many and they will deceive many more but they are not G_d. They have been defeated and know their time is short. I have seen them fearful; hardly a "god" like quality. You are self deceived and there is nothing I or anyone here can say that can help you. Not until you choose to seek the truth can your eyes be opened. I feel soory for people like you.

I wanna know why lol. I remember long ago you had told us you were neither a Hindu nor Muslim. At first I understood that to mean you were a Sikh, since you were from the Punjab, but later you told us Agnostic, I even thought you were Atheist once lol. By the way I'm cool with whatever faith people have as long as they are truthful and support Israel.

We used to have Muslims onboard that were pro Israel, even some Palestinians. Never knew what happened to them, as they were outspoken supporters of Israel, God knows what that did to them.

Part of my family is Hindu, Tamil specifically, but for me I consider that Hindu as Hindu means a believer in Krishna & more importantly unites all the different Indian, Vedic sects into one. We can be Gujarati, Shiva believers, Ganesh devotees, Tamil, Kerala, Telugu, Marathi, but we should all be Hindus and support Hindustan (India/Bharat)

I also have Anglican, Catholic family, aswell as Baha'is and 7th Day Adventists lol. I chose the one I was the most attached to at that time also, Christianity.

The reason is simple. I do not believe in organised religion. Further, as a Mohyal Brahmin, my gotra i.e. clan has been expressly forbidden by Parashurama and Guru Gobind Singh both to forsake Brahminical rituals and adopt the duties of a Kshatriya or warrior.

However, 60 odd years of misrule by INC and NCERT history written by Romila Thapar, another descendant of Pt JawaharLal Nehru has steadfastly tried to portray a statist, communist version of history where Moghuls = Good, British Colonisers = Bad , Nehru-Gandhi clan = best of the best and only hope of salvation of 🇮🇳.

I have learnt rudimentary Sanskrit and the older the texts I read , i.e. Puranas , Upnishads etc., the more I am convinced that the ills governing India are not caused by caste, creed, religion or any such societal element but are fundamentally caused by the people of the Republic of India abandoning their own identity in pursuit of money through votebank politics.

My paternal grandfather was a Gandhar, a clan found mostly in Jatt moslem, the maternal grandpa was a Prashar.

In ancient times, Scythians, what the Nazis called Aryans were foreign invaders. However by 870 CE , the Ghaznavid assault brought an entirely new type of raiders to the Kabulshahis, the Timurids.

Finally by the time of Durrani-Hotaki dynasty in Afghanistan , the remaining traces of Bactrian history were wiped out to be replaced a new Moslem narrative.
These were my ancestors.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabul_Shahi

Edited to add : Gandhar btw is a clan found not only in Moslems Sikhs and Hindus. In 607 BC, Bhagwaan Mahavir Jain, the founder of Jainism another non-violent Dharmic faith, took his first 11 learned scholar disciples called the 11 Gandhars.

It is not an Israeli military forum, it is a forum of overseas English speaking supporters of IDF.

BTW SOP is to go introduce yourself in the sub-forum intended for that purpose.

Other than that, welcome aboard.
