I've known many over 50 years in lots of ways. Entirely different mindset. Our attitudes are a mystery to them. Don't make sense to them.The Jews stereotype themselves. They are a very insular group. When a young Jew grows up in a Jewish family they will have Jews around them and no one else to serve as a reference to the outside world. They are very strong on Jewish tradition and culture. They have a network, for example my friend had children and he mother arranged a meeting with the rabbi and it was arranged for them to get a place in the best school in the area. When it is time to get married the parents introduce them to young Jewish boys and suggest they get to know each other. It's not strictly an arranged marriage like some cultures, but there is social pressure to marry a Jew.
Now my friend rebelled, but not entirely. She married a non-Jew and it caused great concern amongst her wider family. She wasn't excommunicated as such, but it was just seen as a failure and her parents were disappointed about that. One thing that I didn't agree with her about was that she had swallowed the feminist line completely and was very nasty towards her husband. He did all the cooking and cleaning and she would just live a social life of meeting countess friends and doing what she wanted.
It was rather sad in a way because when she was in her teens she suffered some really serious medical condition, which interrupted her studies, but the college she went to awarded her a degree for virtually no work at all. I think this was more Jewish connections going on, but it is clear that the system works for them in all ways it can, whether that be the education system, the police the law courts or whatever. One should be careful messing with a Jew because they have the backing of the entire system.
They seem to think they really are the chosen ones and that there is nothing wrong with a Jew being treated in a favourable way. This is entirely at odds with our Christian tradition where we view things quite differently. Jesus taught kindness and forgiveness and to look after those less fortunate than themselves. Jews simply don’t think like this. If you want to understand the corporate culture we have today I think you have to study how Jews think. It really is an odd one. Oh and one final thing was that as a close friend I eventually found out she was stabbing me in the back. I got feedback from those she spoke to and found out what she was doing and decided to end the friendship. It’s just very weird and I don’t think a non-Jew will ever be able to understand them. They have a very different belief system. The Romans had a god called Janus. I think this just about sums it up.
