Quote from: Kayo on September 21, 2011, 04:41:45 PMThe Jews are being silly asking for their own plot of land surrounded entirely my Muslim land. I mean it's fine and all, but they just sit there like they're not expecting a fight. I mean you took the land from Palestine then you're gonna sit there acting like you're totally cool and badass just because you're a Jewish country in the middle of Islam world. tl;dr Israel should stop whining

Might as well take a country the SIZE OF THE STATE OF MAINE where our holy land is. Besides, if they have an issue with Israel, maybe we should kill six million of them and see how they feel after that.

It's kind of why we needed a state to begin with.And the Vatican is just Catholicism, there a lot more Christian states that endorse that religion around the world. The world doesn't owe us anything at this point, but it'd be nice to simply live without the rest of the Arab world trying to wipe us off the map for no good reason. And apparently you've never been to the south. Do you know how many times my school has more or less excluded the few Jews there were because it's basically a religious state down here? The Fellowship of Christian "Athletes" is a religious organization masquerading under the guise of sports to bring religion into public schools. While I was in the band, it was run by a down south folksy guy and the student leader was more or less a televangelist, who would make us say a prayer whenever before we would begin any big meeting or something. Oh, and I won't forget the time the faculty got mad at US for wanting to change the date for the senior trip, because it fell on Passover, a holy day for us, thus making it so we couldn't go. So, actually, I DO fear getting stoned in America... at least this part of it anyway.
Quote from: Nayrman on September 21, 2011, 08:45:25 PMNo, but a little amount of consideration would be nice so all the students can attend, rather than singling out a few because they're different and it's simply more "convenient" for the others. In which case, I demand that school be open on Easter and Christmas, because I want to have more of an education rather than take days off that mean nothing to me. Nextly, Chanukah isn't even a major holiday of ours, you guys just think it is since it falls near Christmas. We can't even get our holy days off down here, yet expect us to revel in their commercialist "holidays" because it's convenient for them? How absurd. Also, I never said anything about political pull, but I thought the point of America was that we were all equal and treated fairly. Oh, but these days that only matters to christians doesn't it? After all, we're a "Christian State" aren't we? That's what so much of the populace likes to call it anyway.Move somewhere else? To where exactly? The north is the only semi-feasible option, but even then, America is on a downward spiral overall. It's not like Israel is the best place either, considering any bus ride can explode at any given moment considering so much of the world hates our guts still. It's basically why I'm ok with a Palestinian state so long as the rest of the Arab world finally shuts up about Israel and leaves it alone.
Quote from: Nayrman on September 22, 2011, 03:46:53 AMFirst off, Passover is not more than one day. Thank you for assuming each individual day (for multiple day holidays, and once again, we have no problem working on Chanukah because it's not all that important, just a time for a few little things.) isn't important, after all, we just have silly holidays that don't mean anything right? It's the night before and the day of, because the Jewish "day" begins at nightfall. Next, about the trip, why should WE have to choose? It's not "the only week that could be done" for scheduling. I group of people shouldn't have to choose between class events and their religious holidays because the school can't bother to plan. And guess what? Times like Passover and such are when MY family get together. Why should I have to miss out on that? We don't get together at all on Christmas because, oh look, WE'RE NOT CHRISTIAN. Is it nice we have the day off? Sure, but doesn't really make up for the fact that we still have to spend our holy days at work or class. Instead, as a religious minority, it's that really annoying period in time where stores try to sell you poop by placing the sticker of a fat, bearded guy on everything, and tv channels have 24 hour marathons of the same god darn movie.The point I was trying to make of having class on Christmas/Easter and so forth is that you still don't get how we feel about that. Oh, sure, it makes sense to never have work on YOUR important days, but intercourse trying to understand where we're coming from. How DARE we even consider having something happening on Christmas! After all, it's not religious anymore and totally commercial so celebrate it too! (Except you're missing the point that again, we're not Christian so the day has NO meaning to us). Wait, if it's so not religious anymore, why do we have the day off at all? Maybe because of it's religious connotation?
