@admin I'll forward your question to the mod who made the report as soon as I can.
@jewnix source please?
voter suppression efforts are a real thing though so i'd like to advise anyone not to drastically be like "i'm not going to vote" two days before the election because they read something
make a principled decision well in advance
they don't talk about how joe biden is going to execute them in central park
they don't histrionically act like joe biden winning a primary is equivalent to the nazis taking over france
have to give it to the supporters of bernie sanders, they don't have the power to do shit like this or the ruthlessness to want to
@kittybecca he's pay what you want. I just sent him a message
or the Zionist is removed from the context of "the Jewish question" and from thousands of years of persecution, and placed at the root of that question and of that persecution
"if it weren't for Zionists, antisemitism wouldn't exist"
Zionism is toxic internalized oppression and misdirected anger that is oppressive in itself; that doesn't mean "the bad Jews" or the Zionists are responsible for the antisemitism that spawned them
the main problem with dividing Jews into "good Jews" and "bad Jews" is it removes Jews from historical context and ultimately confirms the idea that *some Jews* are responsible for antisemitism
e.g. George Soros is removed from the context of the Hungarian antisemitism that he and his family grew up in and is placed, ahistorically, at the root of that same antisemitism
"if it weren't for George Soros and people like George Soros, there would be no antisemitism..." say the antisemites
the ancient crime of Jews was being in the way of more powerful empires (Rome, Greece, Persia, Babylon). The books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings were most likely composed in the aftermath of the conquering of the Northern Kingdom of Israel in order to spur Jews (Judeans) to action against the invading Babylonians and implore them to remain Jewish no matter what. it was probably not a historical account in any sense but an effort to toughen the Jews against a powerful invader.
in exile these books received further redactions. the archeological record shows no evidence of the conquest spoken of in these books; rather, it shows that the Jews were Canaanite pagans indistinguishable from our neighbors who gradually came to abandon polytheism.
there's good reason to believe Deuteronomy was first composed in the Northern Kingdom and that the original Temple was the one on Mount Gerizim. after the conquering of the Northern Kingdom, the book of Deuteronomy spread southward, received a few additions parallel to existing passages, and the "deuteronomic history" (Joshua->Kings) was composed to explain current events and existing legends in light of Deuteronomy.
granted, the thing about the book of Deuteronomy being originally from the Northern Kingdom is controversial, but the evidence is compelling imo
the rest of that is widely accepted, with various caveats, among near east scholars
