A literal IV drip filled with caffeine. Apparently, a caffeine drip is not a joke.
I myself can't quit caffeine. I was in withdrawal so badly during surgery that I could not hold down even water as much. They literally had to hook me up to a caffeine drip. The drip rate was two hours instead of one hour because the nurse did not want to blow out my vein.

"Ethnocide" means "destruction or murder of an ethnic group". It comes from the Greek "έθνος" and the Latin "caedere". In contrast to the more-general term "genocide" (pertaining to a case in which significant numbers of people are murdered, and with "genus" referring to either ethnic, class, or familial distinction), "ethnocide" refers to the specific and targeted destruction of an ethnic group.
The Holocaust was really less of a genocide than it was an ethnocide, since the Nazis (Yemach shemam.) specifically intended to destroy the Jewish ethnic group.

An online encyclopedia, Wikipedia was founded by Jimmy Wales. Meant to be a "free encyclopedia", it has since become a controversial and questionable source of information.
While Wikipedia is good for basic facts, it must be taken with a grain of salt, especially since many of its editors are agenda driven ideologues in one or another way.

An Ethnic Jew who believes in Jesus (Yeshua) as the Jewish Messiah (Mashiach/Moshiach). He or she may or may not be a member of the group Jews for Jesus.
A Jew For Jesus is also called a Messianic Jew or Jewish Christian. Among the most controversial Jews For Jesus was a Jewish man who was a Southern Baptist pastor named Martin Meyer "Moishe" Rosen (1932-2010). The late Moishe Rosen founded the group known as Jews For Jesus. Like individual Jews for Jesus are, the group Jews For Jesus is often a target of every kind of intolerance and persecution imaginable--most often from Anti Semitic and Anti Messianic ("Anti Missionary", "Counter Missionary") individuals and groups; ranging from individuals and groups who are racist against all Jews, anyway (such as David Duke and Stormfront, and Malik Zulu Shabbaz and the Pseudo-Jewish Black Hebrew Israelites), to individuals such as Tracey Rich of JewFAQ and groups such as the Central Conference of American Rabbis of the Union of Reform Judaism, who have issued multiple responsa against Messianic Jews and Messianic Judaism (e.g., "CCAR RESPONSA 'On Patrilineal Descent, Apostasy, and Synagogue Honors', 5758.11").

An Ethnically-Patrilineal and/or -Matrilineal Jew who believes that the historical Jesus of Nazareth (Yeshua HaNotzri) is the Messiah and that the New Testament is a part of TaNaKH(i.e., Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim, Hadashah-- literally "New" or "News").
A Messianic Jew does not necessarily keep all 613 mitzvot in the Torah, may not hold the Talmud as part of the Jewish Bible, and may be a member of a church as opposed to a Messianic shul or synagogue. Also called "Jews for Jesus", Messianic Jews are often targeted for persecution by Antimissionaries such as the Antimissionary organization Jews for Judaism.
