I'll go out on a limb and guess it symbolizes the Red Sea.
^Obviously you have never taken a class in literature or human biology! No doubt you Googled it and failed. But generally speaking the mythical Ancient Israelite were symbolically "sperm" and made their to safety to potential fertilization only after the flow of the Red Sea.*
*That time of the month.
WHY DIDN'T YAHWEH HAVE THE ANCIENT ISRAELITES WALK ON WATER! Kamandi, did you know the ARK OF THE COVENANT was based on ANCIENT EGYPTIAN stuff and the 10 Commandments came from the Egyptian Book of the Dead? Why do you guys always plagiarize folks and not give them royalties!
I'm not Kamandi.
Also, you're a real zero.
Kamandi, when did FaDeThEBuTcHeR give you access to The Phora? And then what happened?
Yahweh's finger which allegedly created the universe in 6 days was apparently small enough to inscribe some Egyptian Book of the Dead rules onto pieces of granite that Moses the Murderer could carry down from the mountain. But what happened? Kamandi? TAlk to us punk!

Sorry, Ganja -you're just repeating the points you always make, and answering that is stale to me. Which is a shame, because on most other topics we'd probably agree (even on music).
I'm also discouraged that your only response to my evidence was that it's all in the past now. Don't you think all that has relevance -that it's a historical truth, in fact, that states are contradistinctive and complex rather static and self-evident?
Contradistinction and cultural dynamism have nothing to do with post-structuralism being as they are consistent with structuralism. However, they are almost universally accepted as accurate models by established academia (at least in the Anglophone world) by all the professions I cited. This is because social stasis makes no sense in describing society.
For instance, you claim that there has been a high degree of cultural similarity between all Jews throughout history. Who are the Jews? In centuries BC it would have distinguished a tribe, up to and during the Roman occupation had a religious aspect, and after the diaspora 'Jewishness' probably had a marginal existence, even in their origin-point where they quickly became a minority. Of course, it works both ways: innumerable 'Jews' are lost to history through assimilation into other cultures. The archaeological evidence of Middle Eastern towns during the Arabic conquests in the 7th century suggests that it was less to do with sudden racial imposition and more to do with a centuries-long drawn out process of acculturation (as opposed the actually sudden and tumultuous Arabic imposition in Spain, which resulted in immediate revolt after the Battle of Tours). The Elizabethans were probably not alone in thinking that Jews could be 'saved' by converting to Christianity (as Shylock does in the 'happy ending' of The Merchant of Venice), and apparently did not give Jews a racial distinction in the modern sense. Since Jews were except from usury laws it's likely that in some cases being Jewish was less a stigma but a benefit; Jews could charge interest on loans and be successful, unlike Christians. Conversion to Judaism in this period is not unthinkable. Finally, up to and during the 20th century Darwinian concepts of biology and sociology influenced the modern concept of race, which was loosely pinned to Jews -who'd already been distinguished as a marginal, successful community in Western countries. I don't need to tell you what happened because of this in the 20th century.
All the while these 'Jews' have not been the same people. Non-practising Jews assimilated into different cultures, all have been effected by social change, all have been affected by technology. Only the most Orthodox of Jews live according to OT rules and outlook, and even if they have successfully recreated a specific period in Jewish history for themselves, that has to happen in isolation to the rest of the world (which has since moved on).
Jews, like everyone else, change.
http://www.pcpsr.org/survey/polls/2010/p38e.htmlWhile demand for holding local elections increases, and while pessimism regarding the chances for reconciliation increases, and while criticism of the PA for suppression of freedoms increases, credibility of the authorities in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip diminishes, support for a permanent settlement along the lines of the Clinton Parameters and the Geneva Initiative decreases, and two thirds oppose return to negotiations with Israel before it freezes settlement construction despite the fact that a majority believes Israel would be the first to benefit from no negotiations
International laws says they do have to accept two states, as per UNSC 242, and that's the way it will be.I don't think they should have to accept two states, and I also think two states would exacerbate tensions.
No, what happened with Lebanon and Sudan would occur: fratricidal civil war.There's a great deal of historical evidence, like I mentioned before, that heavily suggests it wouldn't work. Hell, they're more or less two states now, and it keeps getting worse. That's why Farfour happened, IMO.
You're a liar. You cited no historical account of MacMahon's promise to the Arabs, and you were refuted with a citation.
I have no idea how much a manager at McDonald's makes, but I make enough to pay my bills, as do many good musicians around here.YOU ARE NOT EVEN MAKING WHAT A MANAGER AT A MC'DONALD'S MAKES SO STOP KIDDING YOURSELF THAT ANYONE BELIEVES YOUR BULLSHIT!
I'm telling the truth, as always, and no, my ethnicity is the same as yours.! FEEL FREE TO POST ANY EVIDENCE OTHERWISE YOU LYING, UKRANIAN CHUMP!
Why are you so obsessed about trying to convince White people that you're really one of them? They don't GIVE A SHIT, at least not in NY. Even if you proved that Judaism is false (which you can't, of course), that still doesn't change ANYTHING about your Jewish ethnicity.Now before we discuss Ancient Israel's wars against their neighbors, lets review stuff like the "parting of the Red Sea" and determine if that really happened.
Where do you think the barbarians in Egypt got those ideas to begin with? Maybe it's because the Jewish people lived there since Yaakov moved there with his sons, until Moshe saved them from slavery.Kamandi, did you know the ARK OF THE COVENANT was based on ANCIENT EGYPTIAN stuff and the 10 Commandments came from the Egyptian Book of the Dead? Why do you guys always plagiarize folks and not give them royalties!
Again, see if you can get state resident tuition for the local community college and get a fluckin' degree and start making some. Again, unless the zionist regime has a deal where they give you US taxpayer money! It is the hub of corruption after all.
Yes they do.Jews do not share a common culture
So?Jews, like everyone else, change.
Most Israelis do, and that's how they feel, obviously. And considering the "Palestinian culture" of treating women like dog shit, killing gays and discriminating against non-Muslims, you can't blame them either., and so all that is left is culture -and who has the right to decide what 'Jewish culture' is, and why should that be necessarily superior to 'Palestinian culture'?
So why are you so hypocritical about Israel then?Then they are.
What OTHER terms there are anyways?You're still thinking in legal terms.
Who are "they"? The 300,000 Arabs who did live there before the Zionists came? Please, we have almost 2 million Israeli Arabs today in the Jewish state who have full equal rights and live better than in any Arab countries, so if that's not good enough, then I don't know what is.'ve seen no evidence from you that they wanted to exit that land, or were happy being elsewhere -in fact, the conflict reinforces the idea they they did not want to leave.
Wrong.I've backed up pretty much everything I've had to say, and complied every single time I was asked to produce evidence.
You can't stand the truth, so you call it "racist"?You're the one refusing to challenge Jewish exceptionalism, have cited genetic continuity as evidence of right, and have used ethnocentric models as an analytical tool. What, specifically, have I said that's racist, and how is it racist?
True, but playing at a few weddings a year does. Besides, wedding gigs aren't the best ones anyways, I much prefer to play festivals, fairs, colleges and casinos.And no, doing 2 birthday parties and a bar-mitzfah each year does not make you part of a wedding band! You crazy!
I don't need to because I already do.Again, see if you can get state resident tuition for the local community college and get a fluckin' degree and start making some.
No, I'm talented enough to make my own money. Israel helps enough people as it is.Again, unless the zionist regime has a deal where they give you US taxpayer money! It is the hub of corruption after all.
Specifically, they share Jewish culture.Yes they do.
There is isn't one law for Palestinians and one law for everyone else.What OTHER terms there are anyways?
It's ridiculously hypocritical for the pro-Palestinians to cite international law chapter and verse when it suits their purposes, then try to claim it has no jurisdiction when it doesn't.

Kamandi, yes we know the zionist regime is racist insanity. But lets get back to discussing the mythology of the Old Testament. That way we can uncover what they base their madness on.
