    Wouldn't that be unleashing a veritable force to be reckoned with, upon unassuming individuals? ;)

    i can't be that bad, surely? basics are this: it gets up my nose when people assume things about judaism, jews, or groups of jews that are not based on knowledge, or, worse, on propaganda or prejudice. people who ask open questions about stuff which they genuinely want to know, discuss or understand need have nothing to worry about! in areas where i have a strong opinion, i will defend it forthrightly, but i am nearly always open to questioning it or even being convinced that i'm wrong. sometimes, of course (and niqab is one issue) i am unconvinced, or even convinced in the opposite direction....

    anyway, basically, if you're civil, i'll be civil and if you're really open-minded, i'll return the compliment. i can be a suspicious bastad of course but that's based on long and unpleasant experience of being right.....

    Whenever me and Bananabrain argue I always win. I do not think it is sporting to see it as a competition though, so I don't usually comment on it.

    Thanks for suggesting a resource. Beats the extra-long rather unecessary 'discussion' previously in this thread.

    Wow this forum is quite unlike other forums Im on, I can't edit older posts or delete any.

    That's to stop people from denying they said what they said. I don't think we have any of those left here, but it was a problem in the past.

    all discussions here are "unnecessary" by definition. that is what discussion boards are *for*!

    The answer to this question, is in the spiritual scriptures. For example, the Quran.
