    Israeli demonstrators

    (No demonstration this weekend in Russia. And this one was perhaps not so important, wondering whether they do not mind their retiring age?)



    Druze-led rally against nation-state law in Tel Aviv draws at least 50,000


    Waving Israeli and Druze flags, demonstrators call for equality; Likud minister says people with political agenda are 'stirring divisions' in Israeli society

    I knew only the word Druze until I briefly met here in Oz a guy who described himself as one. He was a young guy of about 20, huge, and strikingly good-looking. Must have been a fair bit of diversity in those genes.

    From what I've been told, the Druze are actually an ethnically diverse genre of "Sabra" Jews, and Palestinian Christian/Muslims,...many of whom have known each other since childhood.... Thanks for the url link.

    If Likud condemns it politically, then it must be a good thing

    You're wrong about that ^. The Druze are definitely not a religious group, from what I was told,...by a Druze,...residing in Turkey.

    Btw...SK. No offense intended, but despite what the global community has been lead (over the centuries) to believe......; "Abrahamic" genealogy, is real. An Abrahamic-based religion....is total bullox.

    No offense taken.

    In my mind I see the genealogy and the religion of the original Abrahamics to be so intertwined that they're indistinguishable...and both to be bollocks

    Extremism is a destructive and backward regardless of fanciful intent or perspective....

    Indeed, spot on. I really did have the honor of spending quality time with a Druze couple while traveling in Turkey, last year.

    They told me some very interesting things, in conjunction with your post #10 . Thanks for sharing the literature info. Cheers.

    Two of those books are available free online...

    https://ia800503.us.archive.org/26/i...sand.years.pdf

    or at: Jewish History, Jewish Religion, the Weight of 3000 Years


    Controversy of Zion by Douglas Reed
    Douglas Reed - The Controversy of Zion - Contents

    or in .pdf at: http://www.controversyofzion.info/Co...eedcontrov.pdf



    Invention of the Jewish People by Sand I have in print, so never looked online for it.

    The writings of Gilad Atzmon are also very informative.
