    ChanahS questions me, "What is an Ashkenazi?". From my understanding, an Ashkenazi is a Jew with European roots, as opposed to Shepardic, meaning from the original twelve tribes of Israel. I really don't know specifically where I got those beliefs, but I do know two Jews from Spain who claim to be Shepardic. They seem to be an elitists who use the term Ashkenazi in the most pejorative terms, once saying that the last four letters in that word are 'nazi'. That kind of thinking is pure, unadulterated rubbish! However, my closest Jewish friends come from Odessa, presumably Ashkenazis, and are by far the most gentle and generous people within my circle of friends. As to your statement that I get my ideas from "Jewish Hate Sites" on the Internet, besides Ha'aretz, I read the Internet editions of The NY Times, Ma'an, The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, and the Los Angeles Times. I also subscribe to The Economist. For source material, I predominantly use Wikipedia.
