  • Why is intermarriage between Jews and Arabs seen as taboo in Israel?

    Best answer: I'm pretty sure BLM Toronto and other groups will challenge the notion that racism is non-existent in Canada. Personally, I think it's pretty minor up there, but not eradicated.

    Now, I think it's better to say that intermarriage between Jews and Arabs is seen as taboo for religious reasons, not necessarily racial ones. After all, the same taboo exists between Arab Christians and Arab Muslims, where racism cannot be a factor. Now, there are those who'd oppose it on those grounds, but if an Arab converts to Judaism or a Jew converts to Christianity or Islam, then it's Kosher/Halal as far as one group is concerned. Of course, things are WAY more complicated than that; however, it's still a better and easy way to look at the situation.

    The religious taboo of intermarriage between all of these groups mainly comes into play when some clergy may fear that any kids won't be raised under their religion. That at least seems to be a huge concern of those who complain about it. However, not everyone has this taboo, and there are those who get married via another nation (often Cyprus) who isn't restricted to clergy-based marriages. There are also a lot of Israelis abroad who may marry someone outside of their faith (and race, if we're still talking about that) and they're generally well-accepted back home. It also needs to be said that secular marriages are being pushed strongly by the secular Israelis.

    Also, one more thing to consider is the mixing of Jewish ethnic groups between each other. While it's thought that many of these groups have a common ancestor, to the outside many will only see a "white" (Ashkenazi) guy/girl with a "brown" (Mizrahi) guy/girl. You can substitute Sephardi Jews in there as well, or Jews from other groups such as those from India or those from Ethiopia. From a purely racial standpoint, Israel starts to look more mixed when most children are coming from "multiracial" backgrounds rather than those that are uniformly one or the other. Of course, they all see themselves as Jewish regardless, but from your prospective it'll stop looking so racially pure.

    As for your last question - Why are people in Israel opposed to racism be (sic) eliminated in their country? - my answer for that is simply that they aren't as a whole. They're much like most nations and would rather fight racism than embrace it. However, bigotry does remain because Israel is in a conflict that sometimes notes racial implications. Arab suicide attacks, for instance, make the Israeli Jewish populace a bit wary because the race of the attacker is uniform. It is of course wrong to say that all Arabs are like that, but that doesn't always comfort or convince some people especially if they've been burned (perhaps literally). To put it another way: Israel is populated with humans, therefore there will be some racism. It's not missing in any nation, Canada included. But much like with Canada, it's myopic to focus on that issue when describing Israel. Israelis actually are far more open than you'd think.

    Best answer: And bringing civilization and technology to some of the deepest, darkest places on Earth. Everywhere the British colonized have benefited from their administration.

  • Is Judaism a Supremacy?

    Best answer: According to the haters, yes. And most will pull out "evidence" that at best consists of misunderstandings of the religion and at worst will be completely made up.

    According to the Jews themselves, no. Most will laugh about the suggestion and exclaim, "WHERE?".

    Hello, the title is vague as I wasn't quite sure how to word it. My dilemma is that it's cheaper to fly from my city airport to another cities airport, but then grab my bags, and purchase separate tickets to my international destination. Doing this will save me about $600.. my question is the legality of it all? Basically I would fly from Dallas to Miami, and Miami to South America (separate tickets). And then I would do the same from South America to Miami, and then separate tickets for Miami to Dallas. Has anybody done this to save money?
