Appropriate costume to assert ethnic & religious preference.

8. what a strange idea
C   (11.21.18)
the progressive marxists support open borders and one world government.
yet at the same time, they play identity politics
since the dissolution of the soviet union, the russians are playing the
same game. not at home, of course, but in any country open to
the delusion of russian change.
israel is one state, indivisible. it is a jewish state, but it acknowledges
the religious and social rights of minorities,
nevertheless, since religious grabs, flags, are used as a sign
of protest, the muslims abuse their right to celebrate their own culture.
What did the Kippah say to his Brother ? Am I my brothers' Kippah ?
10. Aren’t we better than that?
Meir ,   Newron   (11.25.18)
So let me get this straight. There’s a proposal that would allow religious Jews who are strict about head covering to keep halacha in Congress but there are Jews who oppose it so they can stick a finger in the eyes of Muslims. Doesn’t that make us seem pathetic? We’re better than that.
11. The House declines down into a platform of posturing
Cameron   (11.27.18)
May the heavy foot of Trump step their antics often in the years ahead.
12. When did Jews ask to wear Kipa in Congress.Its a Muslim plan
Alan ,   SA   (11.28.18)
They should not group Jewish Kippas with Muslim Nikabs or Burkas or whatever.the Muslim religious dress demands.. Its to show "We are here in USA"
13. Abraham Lincoln did have a long beard.But not becoz religion
Alan ,   SA   (11.28.18)
14. USA is heading for disaster: "divide&conquer" always works!
