A Jewish-sports- club , somewhere...
and yet , the ball is also round.
Some places on this earth compete
in the course of history about
their religious identity , in regard to a specific religion
or to another.....
If we are to choose Judaism , as for example ,
and if we are to measure the degree of Jewishness of any place ,
we could use the following formula to measure it :
For each Synagogue build : 1.500 points per year
For each Jewish-citizens : 100 points per year
For each Jewish Lord Mayor of that place : 1.000 points per year
For each Jewish-school : 500 points per years
For each Jewish University : 1.500 points per year
For each Jewish Head of State ruling that place : 5.000 points per year
Of course when the school is closed or a Synagogue is abandoned ,
or the Jewish-king is gone......the counting must stop......
Then we can decide to go back in History one or two thousand years
and even four thousands , as you wish.....
If we take ,now
Amsterdam, Istanbul, Cordoba , Jerusalem,
Damascus,Baghdad, Tehran,Tel-Aviv, Alexandria
and or Prague......for example ,
and we use my above formula in counting the Jewishness
of any of those cities......
( You may create your own formula, if you wish,
and as you wish )
I am sure that Jerusalem will come as the last one
and if not at least , "one-of-the- least-jewish- cities " .
I live 33 years in Amsterdam , where 5 Mayors have passed
out of which 4 where Jews....
and another douzen-Jew-Mayors before I came.(1975)
Let alone that Amsterdam might have more Synagouges
than the modern-Jerusalem.
Alexandria has had the largest Jewish community
ever in the Antique-times
and still has the largest Synagogue ever built.
Bearing in mind ,
that Jerusalem did have a non-jewish-Roman-rulers
when even Jesus was there.....untill the year 1948.
Damascus has the oldest still existing Synagogue
and has had once a Jewish-Syrian- King.
Georgia was Jewish 300 long years....if not longer.
Baghdad has the longest originally existing
and the purest Jewish-community in the World
and Tehran comes very close to it.....in that record.
Prague , if we calculate the last millennium only ,
has had qualitatively and quantitatively more Jews
and more Jewishness , than Jerusalem.
If you would calculate now the last 100 years only ,
New-York would be more jewish than Jerusalem... ..
So the Zionists ought to pick up their calculators
and should redefine "the Jewish-home"
even Lord Balfour called it "a" Jewish-home.
I may suggest New-York because it is the nearest to
the Federal-Reserve- building. ......
and not far from the Pentagon.
