New York Times: Poll Shows Major Shift in Identity of US Jews
“The intermarriage rate, a bellwether statistic, has reached a high of 58 percent for all Jews, and 71 percent for non-Orthodox Jews — a huge change from before 1970 when only 17 percent of Jews married outside the faith. Two-thirds of Jews do not belong to a synagogue, one-fourth do not believe in God and one-third had a Christmas tree in their home last year.
“It’s a very grim portrait of the health of the American Jewish population in terms of their Jewish identification,” said Jack Wertheimer, a professor of American Jewish history at the Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York.”
Read that quote again. “Grim portrait.” No White Gentile could get away with that.
Go ahead. Read the whole story.
Now compare it to the tone of this MSNBC drivel from last summer:
“America’s young children are more racially diverse than ever before, according to a Census report released Thursday morning, which finds that approximately half of all children under five are racial minorities.
“Additionally, the fastest percentage of population growth is among self-identified multiracial Americans—especially fascinating in a time when ads featuring interracial families still spark controversy.”
It appears the sword of social equality has two sharp edges, no? I guess the Jews–so long invested in “tearing down walls”–missed Nietzsche’s warning:
“Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
