What makes us Jewish?
First something about the Jews from Gentiles:
Tomas Cahill would articulate in his book “The Gifts of the Jews:” First…“We can hardly get up in the morning or cross the street without being Jewish … The religion of the Hebrews, changed the worldview of Western civilization … The West’s most deeply held beliefs about life, human nature, God, and justice are all owed to the ancient Israelites. “In the ancient world of the ‘ever-turning Wheel,…’ the countless gods and goddesses of the old mythologies played out their dramas in the world above. These gods were lustful, jealous, and greedy, and humans were of little import. Man had no freedom to choose a destiny, and no divinely inspired laws and ethics to guide him.”
According to Cahill, the Hebrews “developed a whole new way of experiencing reality… It may be said with some justice that theirs is the only new idea that human beings have ever had.”
Amazon Review on History of the Jews By Paul Johnson, “Interesting, thorough, and thoughtful history of the Jewish People, particularly because the author is not Jewish. Johnson starts his story by calling the Jews the ” most tenacious people in history.” He ascribes to the Jews the “willingness to ask the difficult question”, a major reason Christian dogma bogs down, according to the author.”
Leo Tolstoy the great Russian novelist, Leo Tolstoy, articulated in a 1908 article: “The Jew is that sacred being who has brought down from heaven the everlasting fire, and has illuminated with it the entire world. He is the religious source, spring and fountain out of which all the rest of the peoples have drawn their beliefs and their religions. The Jew is the emblem of eternity. He, who neither slaughter nor torture of thousands of years could destroy, he who neither fire, nor sword, nor Inquisition was able to wipe off the face of the earth. He, who was the first to produce the Oracles of God. He, who has been for so long the Guardian of Prophecy and has transmitted it to the rest of the world. Such a nation cannot be destroyed. The Jew is as everlasting as Eternity itself.”

–We are – acknowledged by all who care for truth – as one Russian writer wrote, “If you seek the truth and you see a Jew, you see everything, wearas if you seek nothing, and you see a Jew you see nothing” – God – whether we want to admit it or not – 70% of Americans believe Jews, Judaism and Israel have their highest regard! –
For God’s intent, that one people would pave the way to goodness, kindness, justice, and hope –
to love above war,
to honesty above greed,
to morality above licentious –
We are the light onto the nations.
From Quora Q&A
Why are so many talented and innovative guys Jewish?
(Response from Gentile)
Because God is with them, period! Most people will have a problem with this answer but it’s got to be true. How else could they have survived for thousands of years and outlived the greatest of empires while not having a home country. They just re-moved into Israel 60 years ago and they are pretty much almost the most successful country in the world with the most powerful army (i think) with enemies on ALL sides. Their success is completely due to Gods helping hand.
