    So that's from the Talmud?

    I don't know where it's from. It's from tradition. From my mother, from her parents, back through the ages...

    Oh wait, you mean the image he posted? It's in Hebrew, and it comes out to something like YHVH (vowels not written). It's written in all kinds of prayers, and in the Torah, and no doubt the Talmud, too. Usually not written vertically, either.

    Sorry to take it off track.

    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Here:

    We do not write G-d's name in a place where it may be discarded or erased. Treating G-d's name with reverence is a way to give respect to G-d. So even though on a computer the name is not really being erased (and perhaps is not really there in the first place), and "G-d" is only an English term used to translate G-d's holy name, it is in keeping with this respect that I write "G-d" in my emails and on-line articles.
    In recent years, some Jews have carried the practice even further by abstaining from writing the English word "God" and substituting the spelling, "G-d" or "Gd." However, there is no prohibition in Jewish law from writing "God" in any language other than Hebrew. In fact, there is an often repeated story about Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, z"l, one of the foremost authorities of Modern Orthodoxy, who intentionally would write and erase the word "God" (in English) on the blackboard in front of his students at Yeshiva University in order to emphasize the fact this is not prohibited by Jewish law.

    Some Reform Jews observe the custom of spelling God as "G-d." Most do not. In any case, it would be inappropriate and opposed to Jewish values to correct or shame a person for keeping this practice if it is done out of respect and reverence for God.

    I keep agreeing with you lately, the Christmas spirit is going to dinosaurs head or something.

    As for the OP, they are as bad as each other, therefore, it is not sane to support either.

    Is it not true that israel offers a passport to any jew under the "right to return" program?

    To be fair, germany offers the same to anyone whose family was driven out by the nazis.
