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.

Let's Clear up some of the Misconceptions in these postings.
A Jew is a person who's mother is Jewish. (Some streams of Judaism argue that Jewish patrimony can be acquired through the father as well).
Jews are not a race but an eclectic mix of different races, nationalities, and cultures; they are a truly multi-cultural and multi-ethnic people. However, within this mix, there are distinct ethnic groups such as the Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews that make up the overwhelming majority of the Jewish People.
Most American Jews are of Ashkenazic origin -- usually originating from Eastern Europe or the former Soviet Union. Therefore, American Jews could largely be classified as an ethnic group, hence the characteristic stereotypes, although there are exceptions.
A Jew is not a person who practices Judaism, although most Jews do adhere to some form of Jewish practice or cultural tradition.
A Jew is not an Israeli and an Israeli is not a Jew. An Israeli is a citizen of the state of Israel. While most Israeli's are Jewish, there are also non-Jewish citizens of Israel.
A Jew is not automatically a citizen of the state of Israel. A Jew must apply for and be granted citizenship to the state just like everyone else, although most are awarded citizenship rather easily.
Larry King's parents were Ashkenazic Jews. Therefore, regardless of whether Larry King practices Judaism or not, Larry King is an Ashkenazic Jew.
Larry King is not an Israeli citizen.
