UK Student Union Votes Against Commemorating Holocaust

eretzyisrael:

The student union at Goldsmiths College in London voted against commemorating the Holocaust this week by a margin of 60 to 1.

Education officer Sarah El-Alfy urged students to vote against the proposal, rejecting it as “Eurocentric” and “colonialist”.

One unnamed student added that, “The motion would force people to remember things they may not want to remember,” whilst another added argued that as the Union was “anti-Zionist” she couldn’t commemorate the Holocaust.

The proposal, which stated that “commemorating the victims of genocide, racial hatred and totalitarianism, and promoting public awareness of these crimes against humanity, is essential to sustaining and defending democratic culture and civil society,” suggested organizing commemorative events around Holocaust Remembrance Day, the European Day of Remembrance for Victims of Stalinism and Nazism, Holodomor Genocide Memorial Day, and Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

The vote comes a day after Britain’s National Union of Students voted against a motion condemning ISIS, on the grounds that voting for it would be “Islamophobic.” Two months ago, that same union voted to boycott Israel.

White people will literally tattoo ANYTHING on their bodies. ABSOLUTELY. ANYTHING.

why is she tattooing tea on her? did tea save her life? 

I have this feeling that she doesn’t even know what chai means. Probably thought it was spiritual or something. I’m patiently waiting for her response lmao

CHAI IS THE HEBREW WORD FOR LIFE HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THE PICTURE IT SAYS #Hebrew THE WRITING IS IN HEBREW YA’LL ARE BEING PURPOSEFULLY IGNORANT TO SHAME A “WHITE” GIRL WHO ISN’T EVEN WHITE

AYYYY Jew stepping in here.  Chai (chet-Yud) translates to “Life”. Which is what we say out of respect to the familes of those who die. But most importantly it is a symbol of the jewish religion, this being from the saying “Am Yisrael Chai” translating to “The children of Israel are alive”.  Do you know how awesome it is to see someone embracing my culture? I’ve grown up scared to even mention that i’m jewish to people in fear of being attacked or killed. So to see someone tattoo it on themselves is awesome! I mean yeah the Torah forbids it, but it also forbids most medicines so fuck that. All you SJWs go on about “appropriating other people cultures”. But did any of you think to actually ask a Jew?  No.  You all assumed she had “Tea” tattooed on her because saying you’re open minded is completely different to actually having an open mind.
Here’s a little saying for you by Hillel."he who refuses to learn deserves extinction.”
And you didn’t even try to learn.  
Your Anti-Semitism disgusts me and i hope you learnt a lesson here.ps summer-tryst You have embarassed the hell out of yourself. Enjoy eating your own words since Chai “Isnt even spiritual”.  nahh. it just represents the religion that all monotheistic faiths are built upon.  totally not religious.

goyim are a fucking experience jesus

The “callout” on this post is so embarrassing. 

Eh, I’m all for calling out the crappy commentary, but it’s pretty effed up to tattoo holy Jewish words on you when tattooing is explicitly forbidden by both our religion (Leviticus, which is outdated) and our culture (holocaust tattoos caused a stigma).
So. Yeah. You’re all wrong.

I meant the original posts that are all like “what is hebrew lol stupid white girls” and how that callout was peak embarrassing gentile.
and idk I feel weird about this considering I am a Jew with tattoos. 

People should read rabbinical commentary on tattooing prohibitions before making blanket statements about it within Judaism imo…
It’s ‘technically’ prohibited by Leviticus 19:28 but it doesn’t limit you from any Jewish services or burial rites. There are social stigmas around it depending on the branch of Judaism you operate within but it’s nowhere near close to some hard rule. If you’re going with the holy word argument there’s good commentary on how the only prohibited tattoo is actually the name of G-d or a sign of devotion to an idol so it doesn’t really hold up very well. There’s also a good deal of evidence of Jews being tattooed throughout history so any prohibition on it would seem largely to come from reactionary conservative movements over time within Judaism.Fuck these goyische callouts though regardless.

Oh for the love of…yes, clearly there’s no way that a single-syllable word could mean anything in any language except the first one you heard, and clearly a different alphabet shouldn’t be a clue of any kind. Don’t let anything stop you on the rush to ‘call out’ imagined dumbassery by white girls.

So I’m Jewish and today I went back to my temple for the first time in a while because my little sister was graduating from Hebrew school…
And I realized I had completely forgotten how amazingly queer-friendly it is. When I had my bat mitzvah they let me have a big portion of my speech be me saying I don’t agree with the Torah/bible saying being gay is wrong, they have a lesbian rabbi, an all genders bathrooms and a rainbow flag outside the congregation.

Just wanted to give an example of a religious institution doing something right :)

beautiful!

Quick Rant on Identity Policing of Jews

I don’t think Goyim understand how anti-semitic and frustrating identity policing is.

Do they appreciate it when other people tell them who and what they are without their say and in a manner that runs completely counter to their own feelings and experiences? Do they

The Negation of the Jew

schraubd:

Shlomo Sand’s latest project is a to “cease considering myself a Jew”. Hey, as far as I’m concerned, all power to him. While his arguments bear an alarming resonance with those of “proud self-hating Jew” Gilad Atzmon, Sand’s rationale for why he wishes to disavow his Jewish identity also sound…
