Comments on: Why was this relevant? http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2009/06/23/why-was-this-relevant/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Sarah http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2009/06/23/why-was-this-relevant/comment-page-1/#comment-343071 Sat, 27 Jun 2009 16:38:54 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/?p=13462#comment-343071 Is it relevant..OMG! Yes, it is obvious that we should use the Israeli means of defining people and states by ethnocentric means. Financial powerhouses like Soros should be a source of pride to those who demand a Jewish state.

it’s about as relevant as the fact that he’s Hungarian-born (which is to say not at all).

funnily enough, nobody’s complaining about the relevance of his Hungarian origin.

The Jewish community as such is very cohesive, extremely slow to assimilate and easily replacing assimilated members from within, unless I’m wrong; it is for many purposes a nation in diaspora, especially for cultural purposes. It’s no less meaningful to talk about Soros’ Jewish ancestry than it is to talk about his other national ancestry. I’m a half-Jewish, half-Scottish, fully-assimilated, all-American mutt myself. I kind of like the Jewish culture; Scottish, maybe I like it but I don’t know it’s Scottish. I’m an atheist, by the way.

He won a great a victory in heavily pounding the British pound. The worst is over of course, if he can make it less worse. Only his name is relevant.
