This may sound desperate, but I honestly don't think any Jew is that stupid. He does have a point that when push comes to shove and another Jew is in trouble, any Jew can manage put aside his ideological differences and treat the other Jew like family--even a complete stranger.I think he was contrasting that with either:a) That Non-Jews of the same religion can be physically abusive/kill to a fellow co-religionist.b) That non-Jews of the same religion don't display the same chessed to one another or go that extra mile.I don't know if these differences are actually true, but it was probably what he was thinking...
I am sorry I clicked on the link. Stupid as that comment sounded, it wasn't clode to the worst on on that thread, much les ever.
FKM:"That Non-Jews of the same religion can be physically abusive/kill to a fellow co-religionist."i guess you don't read the news too much
>a) That Non-Jews of the same religion can be physically abusive/kill to a fellow co-religionist.We had that just the other day in a yeshivah, didn't we?> b) That non-Jews of the same religion don't display the same chessed to one another or go that extra mile.Not true at all.
I think you're all giving the commentor too much credit. In the frummie world "the goyim" are a single group. All nations/ethnicities/religions/etc. are part of that group. And since nations/ethnicities/religions fight with one another, his comment is technically true. "The goyim" fight amonong themselves. Also, the goyim supposedly have no redeeming character traits. I was taught is yeshiva that even when a goy does something that looks generous, he's really doing it for selfish reasons - so it doesn't count. Jews, on the other hand, only do good things for purely altruistic reasons.There really are people out there who beleive things like that.
"lack of achdus is a hallmark trait"Thats as big of lie as ive seen, what do you think goyim are? they have achdus, they just call it something else. In africa they were big on kinship, an army runs on people fighting side by side, they help each other and they do feel a connection with the other members of the regime.
Regardless of what non-Jews may or may not be like deep inside, we can't pretend to be perfect already. We have a lot of work to do on ourselves. That work, and not bad-mouthing others, should be our priority.
