a an ethnic and cultural background as well as a term for one who practices the monotheistic religion of judaism.. thats it! i see alotta posters on this site with their head lodged so far up their ass about being jewish that they dont see the true picture that it is not a birthright to succeed just because you're jewish. you can come from a really crappy family with bad parenting figures and end up like any average joe. some may perhaps say that it is genetic in nature for their success, while others their cultural traditions of parenting and discipline. i myself have a genious iq and am not jewish, but have had jewish friends. there are many other individuals who do not achieve the success of what many of them have accomplished, and individual personality and experience inside their community is a factor in how a person will turn out. in this case the jewish community is very tightly knit and look out for one another. this has helped them to succeed and survive. but to call themselves gods chosen people is complete and utter bullshit and does nothing but make themselves look like elitist assholes that makes everyone else think that they believe that everyone should fucking bow down to them. conceit is an evil in itself, and it can spawn hatred and in this case anti-semitism. yes, it is a well known fact that the jews have been treated like utter shit for centuries, but look at what other people have had to go through and are still going through. no matter what race you are there is no denying that nobody in north america has been treated worse than the natives, and to ignore their plight is still being ignored to this day. those that are jewish should feel happy that they aren't living like that and they are actually treated equally in western society today. the whole world needs to do itself a favour (the jews included) and stop overgeneralizing eachother or looking down on eachother. only until then can there ever be peace. u can have all the fancy harvard law degrees in the world and never see the picture, until you have the wisdom of life experience all that intelligence and academic achievement will be merely superficial to your concept of what the reality of life is and what the greater good for people as a whole is.. thats at least my philosophy
jews are just like any other human being and shouldn't be treated as more or less than that.

rap can be:
a) a solid genre of music that has artistic merit and lyrics with message and deeper meaning than the lyrics themselves (see eminem, 2pac, jedi mind tricks, nas, mos def)
b) a cliche genre that has really half assed lyrics about materialism (which seems to be going on more and more these days), girls, how better you are than other people. its basically all shit talking and things that you wouldnt have to really think about the lyrical content, or comprehend any kind of musical complexity (ie tempo, tone, mood of the song, different movements of the song) other than the rappers flow to the beat. im not saying its easy to rap (flow wise that is) but theres so many rappers out there that just couldnt care less about their art (ie 50 cent, Nelly, a shitload of others i cant name at the top of my head rite now) and just write a bunch of lyrics that have no meaning and nobody will ever remember in 20-25 years. the list can keep going on and on and it gives people the wrong impression about rap. dont get me wrong, i am a rocker and a musician myself, and i listen to just about any genre out there (except country or opera, everything else is fair game) but i listen to rap, just nothing that i listed above. dont diss rap until you have listened to artists who use their rap as an expression of their artistic concepts and views.
rap is just a good concept of a genre with its good artists who rap about what really matters and think deeper, but then theres many many other "artists" that really taint its credit as music and art

The dictionary defines Zionism as "Jewish Nationalism." The dictionary defines Nazism as a form of "Race-based Nationalism." The fact of the matter is that the British subjugated the Palestinian people, basically kicked them out of their homes, gave up the land to the Israelis and expected everything to be happy. Believe it or not, the Palestinians simply don't like being replaced like that. Moreover, they didn't take too kindly to the overt Israeli suppression and violence against them beginning in 1949 with the Irgun Gang and all of that. In the late 1960s, the violence really crested with the Arab-Israeli War over what was essentially Israeli apartheid against the Palestinians. The end of that war led to Yassir Arafat, who, in 1971, made a historic speech to the UN General Assembly, thusly thrusting Palestinian plight onto the international stage for the first time ever really. Throughout the 1970s both sides trade atrocities, although Israel's violence is state violence, backed by the U.S., that is aimed directly at suppressing the Palestinian people, civilian, terrorist, or whatever. Then there was that whole episode in Lebanon in the 1980s, the 1982 Israeli massacre of roughly 3 thousand Palestinian refugees at Shatila and Sabra - presided over by then-Israeli General Ariel Sharon. In the early 1990s, things are looking pretty good with Oslo and the Peace Accords... Arafat and then-Israeli PM Yitzkah Rabin winning the Nobel Peace Prize, things seemed good. Then, in 1996, Israeli extremist assassinated Yitzkah Rabin, halting the peace process. Israeli forces killed a top bombmaker for Shiek Ahmed Yassin's Hamas, and Hamas retaliated with multiple bus bombs. I obviously don't condone this, but the fact is that the Israeli Government made it possible by doing two things: 1) By oppressing the Palestinians in the first place, creating a sense of loathing and 2) By keeping the P.L.O. in such a state of disrepair that they hadn't the power to keep Hamas under control. Then in 2000 there was the last long-shot at making things work with a dual-state. Arafat held out for more land and didn't get it. The Second Intifada began when Sharon visited a controversial Temple. In that Intifada, roughly 3 times more Palestinians have died than Israelis. More than 20,000 Palestinian homes have been razed. Israel has continued to build illegal settlements in Palestinian territory, further displacing the Palestinians. Note that the Palestinians are virtually cut off from all sources of fresh water. Consider the martial law that has been implemented in Palestinian territories in the last 5 years. The checkpoints. After wittnessing the way the state ran, South African Archbishop, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and champion of the anti-Apartheid campaign in South Africa Desmond Tutu said that Israel reminded him of the South African apartheid. Nelson Mandela said the same. Here's another great fun fact: the Israeli government was the largest arms trader with South Africa during the apartheid.
