Article Body:
A Jew is a person whose mother is Jewish, although various streams of
Judaism dispute this statement and designate that Jewish patrimony can be
acquired through the father as well. Jews are not a race but a diverse
mix of diverse races, nationalities, and cultures. Jews are truly multi-
cultural and multi-ethnic people; however, within this mix, there are
distinct ethnic groups such as the Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews. They
make up the vast majority of the Jewish People. Most American Jews are of
Ashkenazi origin. Typically originating from Eastern Europe or the former
Soviet Union American Jews could be classified as a separate ethnic
group, and as a result there are the characteristic stereotypes, although
there are exceptions. A Jew is not a person who practices Judaism,
although most Jews do hold on to some form of Jewish practice or cultural
custom. A Jew is not an Israeli and an Israeli is not necessarily a Jew.
An Israeli is a citizen of the state of Israel. While inhabitants of
Israel are Jewish, there are also non-Jewish citizens of Israel.

A Jew is not necessarily a citizen of the state of Israel. Every Jew who
is willing to immigrate to Israel must apply for and be granted
citizenship to the state just like all the rest of us, although mostly
Jewish people are awarded citizenship rather easily. The Jewish faith is
one of the most tolerant in the world. Made up of courageous, moral and
highly intelligent believers, the Jewish faith has been able to triumph
over many centuries of cruel persecution by ignorant, envious
representatives of other religions. The source of anti-Semitism in the
world today is the result of Jewish success in social, educational and
economic areas. Jews value morality, education, and hard work. They care
for their families and are pleasant people to be around, if you’re not
hostile racist certainly as intellectual superiors, Jews can succeed in
all jobs. The presence of such a successful, admirable culture
intimidates many. Despite abundant repression Jews remain tolerant and
successful in all areas.
Jews are not cheap; they're just smart enough to spend their money on the
right things, like education and accommodation, things that will bring
returns in the future. They care about their families and peace in their
country and will try to protect these values by any possible means. So
there’s nothing wrong with trying to defend Israel from the ignorant
Palestinian government which reasoning is behind many people’s
understanding. All the stereotypes about Jews are right in the same way
that Christian people can be cheap and big-nosed, which means it's not
right about all the Jews.
