Open to any topics especially those related to politics--I.E the U.S, Middle East, Europe, etc.

Naturally I'd argue against the U.S ;) I'd be open to doing the debate by voice *and* camera...and I guess there could be more than two participants? It doesn't have to be as structured as a written debate.

I can do it at Saturday night or anytime next week...

I have any even better question. Tell me why do people dislike the Jews. And is ISIS a terrorist group driven by culture or religion.

They seem to not respect the culture of whatever area they are in. I think it's why they've been kicked out of so many countries over the course of history.

And is ISIS a terrorist group driven by culture or religion.

Both, and other factors

Hm, the reasons vary from individual(s) but it's largely based on the fact that they do not 'trust' Jews, think they are greedy, etc. In terms of present times, many people associate Jews with Israel and believe that they have too much control in the world.

And is ISIS a terrorist group driven by culture or religion.

One can't deny that they use religion--but that's primarily a facade that they hide behind. I would argue that above all ISIS is driven by violence and criminality, and neither really culture or religion. Most ISIS fighters don't join because they're faithful Muslims, but because they're enticed by belonging to *group* that they consider significant and attracted to the violence and/or perceived power that comes with that.

If anything Jews have made great efforts to assimilate into other societies while still maintaining their own culture, which we've never really tried to impose on other people. Being kicked out of other countries is more related to their own intolerance and misunderstandings of Jews. In pretty much all cases, Jewish people were an easy target.

Jews- But can we say to be fair, that the Jews because they are the Children of God, they do have some favor. And they are targeted and mistreated often due to their ethnicity or bloodline by demonic forces who misrepresent these people.

ISIS- I do believe that ISIS is an extremist anarchist group who wants to rule over the status quo. They play on the fears and emotions of those who are economically challenged. This is their main demographic here, so maybe this is what they really are about. An ideology of rebellion.

Oh, I don't know about that...

I do think that the we were mistreated largely *because* of our religion--but only because of its relationship with Christianity and the way that Christians perceived us. Examples of that can be found in the Spanish Inquisition and all other forced conversions/expulsions that took place.

This provides a good idea of how Christians generally saw Jews:

'Jews are the most worthless of men; they are lecherous, greedy, rapacious; they are perfidious murderers of Christians, they worship the devil, their religion is a sickness... The Jews are the odious assassins of Christ and for killing god there is no expiation, no indulgence, no pardon. Christians may never cease vengeance. The Jews must live in servitude forever. It is incumbent on all Christians to hate the Jews.' - John Chrysostom, Patriarch of Constantinople.

In addition there was some more practical reasons for persecution, such as if anything ever went wrong--Jews were always easier to blame. The origins of many of the blood libels (such as those in England, etc.) can be traced to exactly that.

The main factor involved was in fact money-lending. As a result of not being allowed to engage in other types of jobs (Jews were even restricted from certain cities across Europe, etc.) many Jewish people began to lend money. If Christians couldn't pay the Jews back; they'd just blame them for various atrocities like drinking blood of slaughtered Christian children. These were mainly noblemen and members of the Christian church.

ISIS- I do believe that ISIS is an extremist anarchist group who wants to rule over the status quo. They play on the fears and emotions of those who are economically challenged. This is their main demographic here, so maybe this is what they really are about. An ideology of rebellion.

Exactly, I agree ;) It's also based on the idea of expansion and of greater dominance--but again, that's more related to the inherent politics of ISIS rather than religion. Muslims who are disengaged from (western) society and are seeking some form of gratification are easily taken in by the premise that this is achievable.

Those questions were kind of disappointing since you prefaced them as being better questions.

But you are speaking from a European perspective. Keep in mind I am American. Grew up in the so called Bible Belt. Here Jews are revered....and well thought of.
Other than a few nationalists, their reputation as it stands now is reasonable.
We view them as humanitarians....socialists.....caretakers....leaders....and organizers. And this has been quite the ordeal, especially in the Black communities.

I'd be down to do a live debate in Spanish. That might be fun.
If you'd like a vote on your debate, please send me a link. I'll do my best to offer a sufficient RFD in your favor.

Also: If you'd like to vote bomb a debate and need help crafting a sufficient RFD, let me know.

Yep, but all what I've outlined provides reasons on as to why persecution against Jews existed ;) The U.S has a much shorter history, so certainly things on a general basis have been easier there for Jewish people. These days we can live in Europe without really 'any' of the previous struggles, as well. Countries were persecution was particularly prevalent have progressed significantly.

I believe that Americans can be said to be just as bad as any other ethnic group or people. Look at what happened with us and Japan. I think it has more to do with their favor with God. And their bloodline and property.

I might be down if I can get my computer fixed before then. We can even talk about BOP's and everything.

Sounds good :) Pretty much any topic I'd talk about...

Is it somewhere in Spain or outside Spain?

Okayy, but would you still be up for a debate? Maybe we could what country makes the best wine?

If any...

Sure. I'd argue Spain or France. And I'd emphatically argue against Italy, Portugal, or the US.

I'd also argue that bars should carry wine cans, not wine bottles.

Great...I personally like Italian wine so I'd take the Pro position for that.

Sure--I may agree with that now though ;) Haven't bought a can (yet) but in England I can see supermarkets selling them.

How about a debate on the greatest work of literature? I'd argue Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov, or The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz. What would you argue?
