    Best answer: Noah and his family served God and they knew about the flood and saw the world come populated again. The son of Noah was Shem who was a grand father to Abraham. Shem was more religious than the other people in the world at that time and he taught Abraham. Then their descendants were Jews. through Jacob they were called Israel. They were promised that land but they failed to serve God and he cast them off as his people and took people from all over the world to serve him.
    So today he has a nation out of all the nations.

    Best answer: Some experts will admit to this claim.

    Jews in what is now Syria were involved in the sugar trade well over 1,000 years ago. Sugar is labor intensive and the Jews employed slaves from the earliest times to facilitate the production of sugar.

    "A crude sugar was produced for almost 1000 years, between A.D. 600 and A.D. 1600 in Norht Africa, the Levant and the Mediterranean region of Europe. Specific regions producing cane sugar and crude sugar included Palestine, Syria, Egypt Cyprus, southern Morocco, Syracuse (Sicily), and southern Spain."

    The "Jews" brought sugar production from the these areas (sugar is thought to be of Polynesian origin) of the Near East to Madeira and São Tomé then on to Brazil (they were kicked out) and on to the Caribbean and America.

    If you look into the rum industry you will see that it was dominated by Jews.

    "Early Jewish immigrants were also heavily involved in the production of that most Caribbean of spirits, rum, putting their knowledge of agriculture to work in the New World. John Nunes, a Jew from Jamaica, was one of the founders of the Bacardi distillery in Cuba, while Storm Portner was one of the first sugar-cane producers in Haiti." -

    You can read more once you find the publication below.

    "AMSTERDAM MERCHANTS IN THE SLAVE TRADE AND AFRICA, COMMERCE 1580s-1670s"

    It is interesting that the publication is trying to down play Jewish involvement but it seems to inadvertently expose the Jewish involvement."

    A TNO level of subterfuge if you will.

    When you read about this subject and see the term " Portuguese Nation of Amsterdam" you will be safe to conclude - Jewish.

    "the Portuguese Sephardim were active in African commodity and slave trades since the 1580s. Diogo
    Nunes Belmonte, Miguel de Pas, Duarte and David de Palacios and Manuel Dias Henriques were the most important merchants during the period prior to the 1640s"

    Best answer: It started when he was a baby.

    His parents had a weird man mutilate his genitals in public for friends and family to see.

    He screamed, cried in pain as he underwent probably the most traumatic physical thing that would happen to him for two decades.

    Then when he was old enough to understand spoken language his parents lied to him and told him he was a chosen person. but that other people who were not his kind were evil, hated him and wanted to kill him.

    In other words - he was physically and mentally terrorized before he was six years old.

    As he grew older and faced rejection and failure he reverted back to the stage of a young damaged boy and sought to strike back an the unchosen, unclean, evil "others" that his parents warned him about.

    This why we have to be kind to the person you mentioned and think of him as the crying baby he was when he was sexually abused.

    Best answer: As it's an eight-night deal, it really varies every night.

    For example, some may hold family get togethers or parties for friends and families to come and enjoy each other's company. However, that can be quite expensive and exhausting, so other times people just stay home and do the traditions there with immediate family. These traditions include lighting the menorah, a candelabrum that progressively gains more candles as the festival progresses, and playing dreidel. There is also the consumption of laktes - potato pancakes - and other oily foods for some, and not to mention that its proximity to Christmas has influenced some Jewish communities to hand out presents at this time as well.

    The holiday (or rather, festival) itself simply celebrates another time when some outside force tried to take down the Jews, and failed. There are quite a few of those, and Hanukkah is just one of them. The menorah represents the original, which kept a holy flame burning but, due to the conflict, the Jews did not have enough oil to keep it going while they retrieved more. The flame kept burning for eight days while more oil was fetched, despite there only being enough for one day, and this is seen as a miracle and sign from G-d that everything was alright. This connection to oil encourages many Jews to eat oily and deep fried foods on this day, as a reminder of the oil that lasted far longer than it should have. The dreidel game also relates back to the military struggle, as some people would pull out such tops during the conflict to hide the fact that they were planning. To invading forces, they looked like they were doing some form of gambling. Today, the top is simply a game, often played with counters of chocolate coins (though anything countable and small will suffice).

    procedure done because the Australian government has given half their pension away to people who have never worked a day in their loves here yet still get a pension. I was speaking with an older Australian woman in the doctors waiting room who told me her husband died in pain while waiting for a medical procedure he would have had done if not for all those now getting a pension who haven't paid into the pension scheme, man she was pissedoff. I myself now have to wait 10 months for a medical procedure but I'm hard enough to cope, is your older fragile relative waiting in pain after giving it all to Australia?
