9 ways the German language can’t let go of Judaism

Source: The Local

For hundreds of years, Yiddish, a mix of medieval German and other languages, was the main language of the Ashkenazi Jews who lived on the Rhine River, before spreading across Europe.The Holocaust and the assimilation of Jews into wider Western cultures have had a devastating effect on the language. But at the height of its usage various dialects were spoken by millions of Jews across Europe and the world. And its effect on German culture can clearly be felt in the colourful influence it has had on German slang, which survives in common expressions used to this day.

  1. 9 ways the German language can’t let go of Judaism:- DISAGREE: Germany, as is the case with all countries, got caught with Christianity. Christianity is not a separate ‘faith’, it is force feeding Judaism, it is by the jews, all about themselves, for themselves, it was compiled behind the backs of the gentiles. The Koran has a similar origin to the bible, Knowledge of the contents exposes the flaws that are overlooked because they are not expected or looked, single track, closed minded, force feeding from birth.

    Until here you may be right but as for Koran is concerned, being last law bearing revealed book for the whole mankind, it only confirms true revelations of all the previous religious books. Rest all are shallow assumptions or conclusions.

  3. these comment are repulsive. i followed this blog up unto this point. i thought it would be nice to get to know some of my abrahmic brothers. after all we believe in the same Allah and we both reject christian interpretation of God. we both have similar dietary and marriage laws and we both fast occasionally. we were good neighbors for 1000 years. the Muslims treated us infinitely better than the church. i figured, i’ll try to get to know them open-mindedly. i was happy to see some open minded individuals here too. but lately im reading more and i see a whole bunch of neo-Nazi garbage. raw Jew hatred that has nothing to do with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. im saddened and disappointed. im on the search for another peaceful Muslim blog without the poison i found here. if anyone has recommendations please let me know.
