Did American Jewish Activists promote Civil Rights out of self-interest?

Dear DWE American Jewish Activists have a renowned history in human & civil rights activism during the 1950s and 1960s in the USA, when: 1. The majority of US Jews had little interest in (antithetical) Israel 2. There remained social and political barriers for American Jews in the USA 3. There remai...

Re: Minogue, Multiculturalism and an appreciation of more Noble Truths

My impression from the article is the writer was sort of equating 'culture' with 'race', which I personally view as flawed thinking. For example, the writer said: Gurkhas in soldiering, black pre-eminence in sport, Irishmen in the Boston police, not to mention women in the caring professions I think...

The US under Obama, and the CIA, have been funding and promoting Wahhabism via Iranian and Saudi Arabian terror networks for years.

Re: Opinion: Greta Thunberg is nothing but a bone of contention

Re: Trump signs order declaring Judaism a nationality

its a stupid and anti-semetic move, Trump expresses anti- semetic views over and over Trump appears to be the greatest Pro-Israel President since Truman. For example, J.F.K and R.F.K were strongly opposed to Israel acquiring nuclear weapons. Also, it is reported R.F.K wanted AIPAC to properly regis...

Re: Trump signs order declaring Judaism a nationality

Good question, people have been debating that for centuries, perhaps even millennia. I imagine Western Europeans mostly debate this.
