    Some people will always be offended no matter what words are used, so yes some will find “jew” offensive.

    As Gardener said, you should really do some research before posting factually incorrect information.
    Especially since Ethnic Jews are everywhere, which is a person born and raised Jewish, but isn't necessarily a believer in the Jewish religion.

    If "Jew" is insulting, then so is "Muslim" and "Christian." If not, then why the anomaly?

    This issue is far simpler than it seems, imo.

The reason I became interested in anything relating to what you call ZOG, that also falls under the NWO category is because it has the name Rothschild all over it. The Israeli Supreme Court AND Knesset building were gifts from the Rothschild family to the State of Israel. We're not talking about a monument or a fountain. We're talking about ... well, buildings. Big, important, official ones, shrouded in mystery, gifted as-is (no questions asked) and full of Masonic imagery and symbolism which itself is influenced by Kabbalah and Khemit (ancient Egypt) traditions. There also seems to be a lot of historical evidence for linking Adam Weishaupt (founder of the illuminati) and Mayer Amschel Bauer (who later changed his name to Rothschild).

    I guess what I'm trying to point out is that it is possible to come at this from, say, studying symbology, or esoteric/occult tradition and/or Freemasonry, and not be anti-Semitic. This doesn't mean that I suspect every Jew of hiding a secret key or code that's going to get them passage onto the second Ark, or that they are planning my demise. For me its about exploring and unraveling the meanings of the symbols
    that have not changed much since the time of the Egyptians yet have a way of showing up in Britney Spears videos, and Jay-Z can't stop singing about them when he isnt too busy flashing 'the Roc' (triangle sign, named after Rockefeller, Jay-Zs crew is called Rocka Fella).. now come on... isn't that just TOO MANY coincidences?
    That is a perfectly normal number of coincidences. Some of the things you describe aren't even coincidences, they have mundane explanations.

    In fact the science supports the opposite scenario

    That's actually completely false, but keep on keepin on.

    I agree with that and stated that was the term I always used. Of course I can't speak to what other people find offensive. Yet I have a hard time understanding why a Jew (sorry, it just fits here) would have any more problem with that than if someone called me a Catholic. It is a religion, after all.

    I actually deleted my post after realizing what I had done. It was pointless, my trying to explain something like that. The very fact that the OP exists, means that I had no chance of enlightening anyone.

    I simply should not have responded.

    I don't know, I guess maybe depending on how it is used. As a verb it can be rather offensive. In general though I wouldn't think so as it is just a contracted from of Jewish. Yes?
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
