There is even a term for that: economic antisemitism.

Unless, of course, you consider dictionaries to be just more propaganda of the western capitalist media and refuse to read them.
Is "jews" defined as a race or religion?

Judaism is a religion not confined to the people of the middle east.

As a Semitic tribe, the Jews (or Israelites) are/were known as Hebrews (or as I affectionately call them: He-bros.) "Hebrew" is an ethnic designation.

To confuse things further, today, many interchange Israeli and Jew which I think is sloppy.

RT is a cheap, unprofessional, Soviet-style propaganda channel headed by a "journalist" who literally slept her way to her current job, can't put two coherent phrases together, was caught falsifying news on multiple occassions, falls for pranks, and is too dumb to detect irony or sarcasm in tweets she often quotes as her "news source".
Just in January RT falsely accused one of Russia's top opposition bloggers (Rustem Adagamov) of pedophylia. They interviewed Adagamov's ex-wife, a nutso, who claimed that some 15 years ago in Norway Adagamov ***** a girl. Who that girl was, how old she was at the time, exactly when and where it happened, why she (ex-wife) or the girl's parents kept silence for 15 years -- all this she failed to explain. RT went on to "inform" the public an official investigation was launched against Adagamov in Norway which turned out to be a total lie.

I've heard about this, and yes, it was a sufficient blow and made me slightly question RT's journalistic integrity. There has been a few instances where their reporting has been blinkered (to say the least), but I use RT for world events, not necessarily reports covering Russia's political infrastructure. Since the mainstream media fail to address the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the Syrian Civil War and and many other world issues, I use RT as my source. As I evidently made clear earlier on, it's far from perfect, but in terms of accessible news sources, this is far less biased, sensationalised and degradable than most other networks. I am not sure how they cover Russian social news (I've read a few of their political reports), but to say RT is propaganda is ignorant. Again, their political and social reporting in Russia could demonstrate this, but out of all the news sources available to me, RT wins. Each media outlet will have its bias, its "agenda" and its motive - it just so happens RT is more honest and informative than most other junk out there.

If somebody has a more objective and less, according to you all, propagandistic news source, then by all means, enlighten me.

You claim you Jews are not that interesting yet you post a picture of the most beautiful, eloquent, downright hottest actress in Hollywood (i.e., Johansson).

No, I understood your point completely. I just find it funny that your post stated "we Jews are not that interesting" and then you indirectly post a picture of Johansson, who I believe is the most beautiful actress in Hollywood. And Natalie Portman better than Scarlett? Blasphemy.

I see u have a thing for miss Johansson but I still thing u missed my point, I took the first thing I saw in google, If the pic of the blonde israeli models wasn't from plucked I will put her, nothing important behind it

About who is more pretty from the two my guess is threre are ppl who won't agree with u but each to his own esp on beauty

The point is, they Don't look from the same race.


About Jewish as not interesting they are 0.2% of the world and I think the interst is our of proportion to their size


I hope u and Johansson will Live happily ever after

I guess if you are looking for evidence of western capitalist corporate corruption under every stone, RT would feed that desire.
And we will hear the same tired story that almost nobody watches it because the western capitalist corporate media already has us brainwashed into not recognizing the truth as RT tells it.

From the time I watched yesterday I was repeatedly told by RT that western corporate news is lies and I should watch RT for the truth. Pure propaganda technique.

You keep talking about who reports the news most truthfully. Don't you realize that a news channel that spends most of its airtime telling you that it's reporting is correct and all western news reporting is lies, is not really there primarily to give you the news?

The RT website has a poll today on who did the Boston bombings. Currently the opinion of 49% of the people who visit that site is that the US government did it. Clearly RT knows its audience.
