The title of the blog might make it appear as if I am on the verge of making anti-Semitic remarks comparing Jews to oil, but it is the opposite. Jews and oil do have a great deal in common. What many see on the surface and use the surface to attack and vilify, is nothing compared to what is within Jews and oil that make them both so important to the world. It is as easy to vilify Jews as it is oil, but those who do have no actual evidence to support their vile claims.
What does it mean to be Jewish?
A simple enough question that people who hate Jews will use to speak vulgarities about the Jewish people as a whole. There is nothing complex about the justifications for hatred, since hatred does not require complexity. All that is needed is for them to have an excuse that is not based on rational thought of any kind. Hatred is a raw emotion the devours reason.
Asking what it means to be Jewish is not something a rational person could ever give an easy answer, since it would take volumes to fill. To ask what it means to be Jewish is to ask what it means to be a part of any other grouping. Jews are not one size fits all, anymore than any other group.
Financially, not all Jews are wealthy. Very few have access to wealth of any kind. Their finances range from poverty to wealthy and everything in between. There are homeless Jews who struggle to survive every day. There are Jews who are on the verge of being homeless and stress about how to take care of their families as other poor people do.
Religiously, not all Jews are even religious, let alone Orthodox of any kind. They range from belief in God to atheist and, just like finances, have a wide range of thoughts and beliefs when it comes to God. No matter how one looks at the raw data between Jews and movements, from globally to a single nation where there are Jews living, there is a vast range of beliefs. In Israel, for example where the institutions tend to be more Orthodox, most Jews in the only Jewish nation on Earth do not classify themselves as Orthodox.
Not all Jews support Israel to any degree. U.S. Senator Sanders has made it clear he has no interest in Israel existing at all, since he does not believe Israel should defend itself against terrorists. Socialists, including Jews, hate Israel for being a democratic state. They hate democracies of all kinds, including the United States. Socialists may not all be of one singular thought, since they are as varied as Stalin and Trotsky were, but all know there can be no revolution from within a democracy.
Jews do not control the media. Taking into account the most recent example of Israel defending itself against a terrorist proxy of Iran, Hamas, there was almost nothing coming from the media that showed a pro-Israel stance to any degree. When much of the media of the world, including the United States, came out and blatantly lies about Hamas, it did help lead to the violence against the Jews that did happen outside Israel.
I could go on but would take far more than a blog allows to do more than just scratch the surface. The answer to who is Jewish is simple enough. A Jew is a janitor, warrior, prisoner, guard, police officer, homeless, working as many hours as possible to keep a home, married for decades to the same person, divorced and remarried multiple times. In essence, a Jewish person could be anyone from any background.
How are Jews like oil?
Environmentalists, even those who should know better, have a tendency of looking at oil the way anti-Semites look at Jews. They see only what they want to see without considering the vastness that is oil.
Oil is not just the surface that goes to the pumps to fuel cars environmentalists hate, except for when they are driving them, but those who do always exempt themselves from what they want others to do. Oil is more than just fuel for airplanes and helicopters, which there are no shortage of environmentalists who ride around in private planes and helicopters. Much like with cars, the environmentalists who can afford them, have their own planes and helicopters.
Oil is the best lubricant ever discovered. It is the reason tires do not rot on cars, no matter how environmentally friendly they claim to be. In fact, just about every component used to make cars, regardless of the source of power, uses oil to at least some degree. The plastic and rubber both have oil, along with windows. Without oil, windshield wipers would be useless after a short period of time.
A simple search reveals over 6000 items that use petroleum that has nothing to do with behicles of any kind, which everyone uses on a daily basis.
Stopping the production of gas and diesel vehicles will not stop the pumping of oil. All it will do is require more people to charge cars, which will put a greater strain on power stations. The strain will result in more blackouts than are already occurring. Gas and diesel engines do not need power from plants to run, unlike electric.
Much like the ideas that Jews are whatever lie happens to be convenient, so to is it a lie that oil comes from dinosaur bones. Oil is not a fossil fuel, since it requires biomass to be produced; as well as other things that happen naturally with the Earth. Fossils do not have the right components to produce energy, which means there is no such thing as fossil fuels. Fossil fuel is something that sounds good in front of the media and to encourage people to repeat but has no science to support the claim.
Environmentalists are socialists who do not care about the facts. It is easy to do a little research to find the truth, but environmentalists never research their own position. Many believe what they are told, no matter how much evidence proves them wrong. Much like people who hate Jews, there are far too many myths used to justify everything that is believed. As a direct result of clean energy, wind power froze in Texas and people did die. Rather than look at their own positions more critically, they made excuses.
Jews and oil have many similarities. Both are viewed with a skewed look by those who have no interest in the truth. When evidence is used to challenge them, the response is anger, which can and does turn violent. When facts are researched, both become far more vast than what is perceived. Those who hate Jews and Israel are using things invented by Jews and Israelis, just as those who hate oil use products that have oil in them.
