actually, most jews are not fundamentalists but …..

From the absolutely stupid and unfathomable.

What makes these loony tunes think God sits around with a paper and pen and says to the angel Gabriel, just a minute, I’m going to jot down a few more rules to make ppl live by, and you get to enforce them.

Somehow I find it difficult to believe that their God has appointed this idiot minority , who live on a different planet and in another century, to lord it over other people not of their faith or belief.  And they really are a minority. A very embarrassing one.
And in case you didn’t know, like muslims, they too separate the women from the men in religious services.  I never understood why.

From iNews

POSTCARD FROM JEROUSALEM

There is an old saying that “Most Israelis don’t go to synagogue, but the synagogue which they don’t go to is orthodox.”

Indeed, the more modern branches of Judaism, which count the majority of Jewish adherents in the UK and worldwide, are unrecognized by the Israeli state. Conversions and weddings have legal force in Israel only if they are conducted by orthodox rabbis. And there is no civil marriage in the Jewish state.

This anomaly hit close to home last week when I went to register my daughter as an American citizen at the US consulate in Jerusalem, which does not recognise the validity of marriages by non-orthodox rabbis. My own marriage certificate was pushed away by the consul as if it was a worthless scrap of paper. “If you like you can make a declaration that your child was born out of wedlock and we can then process the application,” the consul said.

He volunteered a suggestion for me to avoid problems in the future: go to Cyprus, get married (again) there and then register the wedding in Israel, which recognises foreign marriages, but not those of its own “non-kosher” rabbis. This is a time-honoured route taken by many couples who need to be legally married, but it merely perpetuates the monopoly.

-30- end

Isn’t an American consulate the same as American territory?  And even if not, how does it happen that one of our consulates must follow the religious law of some medieval cult in relation to an American citizen?  I’m lost on this one. Maybe I misread it.

And from the divinely dumb to the outrageously callus.

This seems par for the course over here and from what our Wardmom writes occasionally on the subject, this kind of inhumanity is not the sole province of care givers in the UK. 

Left to die by callous paramedic: Shocking video shows ambulance man stood with his hands in pockets as patient had heart attack in front of him in hospital car park

· Carl Cope died outside A&E as paramedic Matt Geary casually looked on

· Geary was today handed eight month suspended sentence

· West Midlands Police pursued conviction after being shocked at footage

· Geary knew Mr Cope suffered chest pains since he brought him to hospital

· Mr Cope’s heartbroken family say his death has had ‘devastating effect’

By LAURIE HANNA FOR MAILONLINE

CCTV footage shows the moment Carl Cope falls to the ground in agony - but paramedic Matt Geary simply watches on instead of helping the dying man.
Despite confessing he had done nothing to help Mr Cope, Geary, 36, escaped a jail term and instead was sentenced for health and safety offences for failing to examine or resuscitate him. 

continued, scroll for the video

The article also points out the dead guy would have bought the farm anyway. Apparently he was in pretty bad shape to start with.
Still .......

Since I’ve been diagnosed with heart disease, I can’t help reading something like this and wondering hey, might that be meself one day? There ain’t no gar-un-tees in this life. Cept maybe taxes and Drew’s eye candy posts. And thank goodness for those.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
