    While I agree that Jews should be respectful to other religions and their holy figures, your references are off the wall. "Yesha" or "Yeshua" is just the Hebrew pronunciation of Jesus (Hebrew doesn't have a "J"). In fact, the so-called Jews for Jesus, and various other Christian groups refer to "Yeshua" -- it is not a derogatory term. I went to an Orthodox Jewish high school, where I had Talmud and Old Testament classes every day. I NEVER heard any reference to Jesus as "the bastard son of a roman soldier", a magician, or anything disrespectful. Of course, Jews don't believe that he was the Messiah (but then, neither do other non-Christians), but explaining that was not done in a rude or nasty way. I also never heard any derogatory references to Christians in any of the Talmud that I studied for 6 years. I read a lot about anti-semites making up anti-Christian or anti-(other group) "quotes", but I never saw it any a real Talmud.
