    Israeli Vaccine appears not to be working very well at all. A new study shows it is not helpful with new variants of COVID.

    Also when you compare curves with countries with almost no vaccination ie South Africa to Israel the most vaccinated population in the world, almost no difference

    In this specific case, it is simply a phonetic equivalent of some crazed person screaming for attention.

    Oh, of course, Sam is special so it is ok for him to continually troll, and since he can come up with contorted logic that the word has taken on a new meaning "phonetic equivalent" that no longer refers to a Jew it is completely cool to keep up with the endless trolling. But if I call him out for what he actually is that is the end of the world. Sam can dish it out but can't take it.

    The word is preceded by "the book of" that normally has a biblical or religious connotation, especially when the previous phrase included "gospel" but we are supposed to have a pipeline into Sam's thoughts that what he meant has nothing to do with the Jewish religion at all. According to Sam it can be an abbreviation for something even though as an actual word it only has the meaning of Jew used in Eastern European countries and as was pointed out was banned in the 1930s in Russia as antisemetic.
    Nope, according to Sam it was simply a "phonetic equivalent" of ...(take your pick) and the rest is just a weird coincidence that it was in the context of a sentence one would normally see in a religious context ie "Gospel".."the book of", oh,... and he just happens to finds an Eastern European equivalent of the word Jew currently used by a very antisemitic country (and in fact the word was banned in Russia as antisemitic in the 1930s) and of course it is a coincidence that my ethnicity is Jewish...yes and it rhymes with my name. How witty of Sam, so clever, and oh so subtle!
    Yes, not an. ethnic slur at all, just a "phonetic equivalent" The poor unlucky victim Sam who of all the words accidentally used that one....NOT!

    I earlier reported the comment calling me a Nazi and have provided an honest answer as to what my post meant. Forcing belief of my reply is something beyond my ability. All I can say is that there was no hidden meaning beyond the rhyme.


    EDIT: I have taken the advice of The Omniscient SB (Thankfully, he is not omnipotent as well) and put him back on my ignore list.

I ask all other posters to support me.
    Oh, that makes a lot of sense, an ethnic slur is thrown at me and I should be banned for calling him out. If you don't like what I say mute me and you don't have to read it.

    Thank you for this information Dilip, these stats do not even include an increase in suicides and drug overdoses that apparently take time to compile. I am not
    sure why so many in this forum are angry that good treatments exist that have been suppressed by pharma and there corrupted bureaucratic counterparts.

    As for him using ethnic slur...

    Yid, zhydterm for Jews, derived from its use as an endonym among Yiddish-speaking Jews.[168] In English, yid can be used both as a neutral or derogatory term,[168] whereas the Russian zhyd came to be a pejorative term banned by the Soviet authorities in the 1930s.[169][170] However, in most other Slavic languages (e.g. Polish, Czech, Slovak, Slovene, Croatian), the term simply translates to 'Jew' (e.g. Polish: żyd) and is thus not a pejorative.

    Please don't play semantic games with me, he brought up my ethnic background that served no useful purpose at all except to belittle me in his sick little mind.

    I had "The Omniscient SB" on ignore, but was seeing enough quotes that it wasn't doing much to filter out the sewage from the thread. I somehow don't feel any more enlightened.
