When religions clash

Jesus H Christ with a Yo-Yo.

As if the elders in any religion ever "got along", but this is just plain silly.
Israeli rabbinic authorities have abruptly called on Jews to shun a major Christian tourism event, baffling and upsetting evangelical groups that traditionally have been big supporters of the Jewish state.

More than 6,000 Christians from over 90 nations are expected to arrive in Jerusalem this week to take part in the 28th annual Christian celebration of the weeklong Jewish holiday of Sukkot, or Feast of Tabernacles, according to the event's organizers, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem.

I'm emphatically anti-proselytizing, but sometimes I think the rabbinic authorities and others are just trolling for things to be upset about and I have no idea why except its a cottage industry for them.

Yes, the Jewish people have suffered and are suffering now to some extent, but can they never let go? Will this litany continue for the next 5,000 years? Oy vey, enough already.

Take your shots.

I'm not antisemitic anymore than anti Democratic or anti clean air. I just get pissed off when people bitch about treatment suffered decades ago, not by them, and continually act as victims. I'm in a privileged position here, but...

This post is gonna leave scars.
