old news, but I just came across it

http://www.jta.org/news/article/2010...-to-serve-jews
Quote:
JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef in his weekly Saturday night sermon said that non-Jews exist to serve Jews.

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel,” he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat.

"Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat," he said to some laughter.

Yosef, the spiritual leader of the Shas Party and the former chief Sephardi rabbi of Israel, also said that the lives of non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.

"With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” said the rabbi, who recently turned 90.

An audio recording of some of the rabbi's remarks was broadcast on Israel's Channel 10.

The American Jewish Committee condemned the rabbi's remarks in a statement issued Monday.

"Rabbi Yosef’s remarks -- suggesting outrageously that Jewish scripture asserts non-Jews exist to serve Jews -- are abhorrent and an offense to human dignity and human equality,” said AJC Executive Director David Harris. "Judaism first taught the world that all individuals are created in the divine image, which helped form the basis of our moral code. A rabbi should be the first, not the last, to reflect that bedrock teaching of our tradition."
That's some serious bigotry right there.

Chances are that you could come up with just about any off-the-wall political position and there would be a few people online who would be willing to follow you.

I think it's mainstream views as well. Look at new rules implemented that have jews-only transportation.

Now, whenever you see jews, you know what to do, scare them to death by showing them pics of ovens.

Perhaps the chosen people moniker has gone to their heads? Either way, if that's how people actually think it doesn't surprise me that they aren't universally loved around the world...IF that is how they think

Have you been to a restaurant with some Jewish people? If so, the article is fitting. This isn't universally true, but strikes a chord for a subset.

Come to think about it when I first started at my job there was a secretary that wouldn't let her son be a waiter because "our people don't serve people"

I guess you just don't know what's said behind closed doors with any people

Well we only have a few subforums and PoliTalk is probably most fitting for this thread. Are you even religious?

Not sure. There should be separation of church and state.
