This does give me some hope, though

But a few things do give me hope, like this report about the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism protesting anti-Muslim bigotry. Jerry Falwell has said that Muslim groups should be excluded from any faith-based initiatives. I am suspicious of those anyway, but still, that is just awful. The leader of this group, R. David Saperstein is the brother of my college advisor, the incredibly erudite Rabbi Prof. Marc Saperstein, who got me into all this Jewish History/Bible thing in the first place. Go Jews!

Gotta say, this is about number 5994838277 in my list of worries...

Maybe, but cf. Mishle 25:21-22

OK. If they are hungry I'll give them food, but only if we REALLY hate each other... :>) (רעב שנאך)

Also, sorry I may have gotten out of line (manners wise) in that other thread with 'gerbilsage.' I just found him intolerably condescending about things he doesn't seem to know much about...

He's like that, and often uses his manner to make people angry to the point that they start spouting off and getting emotional, and then he can pick them apart and look rational. It's a smart tactic; I think that Marshal McLuhan warned of the dangers of putting out 'heat' in a 'cool' medium.
He is pretty smart, and for a non-Jew he really enjoys upshlugging an argument.
