"Some of them told what dreams meant and gave directions for working magic--all sorts of nasty things to be cooked together. others--Jewish rolls in Aramaic--were about the end of the world and wild adventures of evil spirits and mixed-up, messy monsters--things with ten heads and jeweled cartwheels for feet, things like that.

[At the council of Nicaea, the Christian leaders and scholars were leaning toward Arianism, the original Christian teaching that Jesus was distinct from God the Father, but ended going with Athanasianism, because:] "But wait. There's a problem. The instant you bring a subdeity on the scene, you've blurred the line between your precious Judaic monotheism and Roman paganism. Thus did the council forever fix Jesus as 'very God' through whom 'all things were made.' The Nicene Creed was recited in churches even in 1991. "
Judaism world 641 C.E. Anderson, Poul. The Boat of a Million Years. New York: Tor (1989); pg. 63.

...seemed the Jewish spokesman's excessively flowery string of opening compliments.

'Except that they regard all three, Mohammedan, Jew and Christian, as 'People of the Book.' They do not regard any others as sharing the same God, as these three religions do, even if they have different beliefs.'

Judaism world 1867 Verne, Jules. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons (1953; c. 1870); pg. 226. "This fanciful fellow claims the sea was given its name after the crossing of the Israelites, when the Pharaoh perished in those waves that came together again at Moses' command:

To mark that miraculous sequel, the sea turned a red without equal.

Thus no other course would do but to name it for its hue. "

"An artistic explanation, Captain Nemo, " I replied, "but I'm unable to rest content with it. So I'll ask you for your own personal views. "

"Here they come. To my thinking, Professor Aronnax, this 'Red Sea' designation must be regarded as a translation of the Hebrew word 'Edrom,' and if the ancients gave it that name, it was because of the unique color of its waters. "

Judaism world 1867 Verne, Jules. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons (1953; c. 1870); pg. 227. "Then, since you've already mentioned the crossing of the Israelites and the catastrophe that befell the Egyptians, I would ask if you've ever discovered any traces under the waters of that great historic event? "

"No, professor, and for an excellent reason. "

"What's that? "

"It's because that same locality where Moses crossed with all his people is now so clogged with sand, camels can barely get their legs wet. You can understand that my Nautilus wouldn't have enough water for itself. "

"And that locality is . . . ? " I asked.

"That locality lies a little above Suez in a sound that used to form a deep estuary when the Red Sea stretched as far as the Bitter Lakes. Now, whether or not their crossing was literally miraculous, the Israelites did cross there in returning to the Promised Land, and the Pharaoh's army did perish at precisely that locality...

"The topic went undiscussed by nomenclatoral societies, but this epithet was one of the most fully researched in existence; in fact its earliest use was claimed to have occurred in biblical times, when Joseph's brothers created a female golem they would share sexually without violating the prohibition against such behavior with a woman.

Joe said, 'Russia will fight on the same side as the U.S.A.'...

'On our side?' Bliss sputtered. 'The Communists? That's impossible; they've got that pact with the Nazis.'

Germany will violate that pact,' Joe said...

Bliss said, 'Those Communists are the real menace, not the Germans. Take the treatment of the Jews. You know who makes a lot out of that? Jews in this country, a lot of them not citizens but refugees living on public welfare. I think the Nazis certainly have been a little extreme in some of the things they've done to the Jews, but basically there's been the Jewish question for a long time, and something, although maybe not so vile as those concentration camps, had to be done about it. We have a similar problem here in the United States, both with Jews and the niggers. Eventually we're going to have to do something about both.' "

Judaism world 1944 Anderson, Jack. Millennium. New York: Tor (1994); pg. 232. "'...During your youth, I believe there was an evil ruler who conducted genocide against the Jewish people. But because of the enormity, the magnitude, and the horror of it, the world refused to believe. And so the truth grew, unchecked, until it became the holocaust.' "
Judaism world 1944 Turtledove, Harry. Worldwar: Striking the Balance. New York: Del Rey (1996); pg. 148. "Moishe started to laugh. He didn't intend to, but couldn't help himself. The degree to which Zolraag misunderstood people in general and Jews in particular was breathtaking. The folk who had given the world Masada, who had stubbornly stayed Jews when slaughtered for sport or for refusing to convert to Christianity . . . and he expected them to choose the path of expedience? No, Russie couldn't help but laugh. "
Judaism world 1944 Turtledove, Harry. Worldwar: Striking the Balance. New York: Del Rey (1996); pg. 318. "He did know the answer: partly the debt he felt to Anielewicz personally, partly that Anielewicz and his Jewish fighters had kept their side of the bargain they'd made with him and didn't deserve incineration, partly the way his stomach knotted whenever he thought about what the forces of the Reich had done to the Jews of eastern Europe before the Lizards came--and were still doing to the Jews remaining in the territory they controlled. (He remembered all too vividly the Jewish and homosexual prisoners who worked on the atomic pile under Schloss Hohentubingen till they died, which seldom took long.) "
Judaism world 1945 Card, Orson Scott. Enchantment. New York: Ballantine Publishing Group (1999); pg. 5.

'Your one voice, praying, is going to fill all that silence? When a child dies, do you comfort the parents by bringing them a puppy to take care of?' " [The main character of this book, Ivan Petrovich Smetski (or Itzak Shlomo) and his family is Jewish.]

Judaism world 1962 Thomsen, Brian M. "Infallibility, Obedience, and Acts of Contrition " in Alternate Tyrants (Mike Resnick, ed.) New York: Tor (1997); pg. 76. "'But to say that Church doctrine dictates that the entire nation of Israel, and all the Jews of the world, should be the object of contempt, censure, and condemnation as the cold-blooded murderers of Christ is absurd, whether it is wrapped around a papal encyclical entitled 'Christianity and Social Progress' or not. You are asking Christian nations of the world to declare open war on a single country.'

'Which is right then?' I asked, completely baffled now.

'All of them,' he said, 'and none. Buddhist, Hindu, Moslem, Christian, Jew--each has an after-life experience which reflects his own beliefs.

Judaism world 1977 Anthony, Piers. God of Tarot. New York: Berkley (1982; c. 1977); pg. 186. "After Alexander the Great conquered the world, many Jews were scattered from Israel to all the countries of the Mediterranean. This was the Diaspora--not the first or the last Jewish dispersion, for a number of conquerors used this method to deal with these intractable people--significant because it happened to make a cutoff date f about 300 B.C. for the assorted books of the Bible. Many displaced Jews now spoke Greek rather than Hebrew, and there were actually more Jews in Alexandria than in Jerusalem. But only narrowly defined Hebrew-language texts were accepted for the Bible as it now stands. Thus much material was excluded by both Jews and Christians, although it was generally recognized to be parallel to the included books. The complete assembly consists of the 39 books of the Old Testament, 14 books of the Apocrypha (meaning 'hidden'), about 18 books of the Pseudepigrapha ('false writings'), and 27 books of the New Testament. That makes the record continuous. "

"Legends say... that an apple falling on the head of Isaac Newton brought about the discovery of gravity... that his murder of an Egyptian slavemaster in an instant of righteous madness sent Moses into exile to discover the wonders of God and the desert. The world might be much more orderly and interesting if these things were so, but it is likely that they are not. It is likely that... Moses would have recoiled from oppressive Egyptian society even had he witnessed one fewer act of wanton brutality. "
Judaism world 1978 Tucker, Wilson. The Year of the Quiet Sun. New York: Ace (1970); pg. 54. "'midrash... it's Hebraic, and it means fiction, religious fiction. Compare it to whatever modern parallel you like; historical fiction, soap opera, detective stories, fantasy; the ancient Hebrews liked their midrash It was their favorite kind of fantasy; they liked to use biblical events and personages in their fiction-call it bible-opera if you like. Scholars have long been aware of that; they know midrash when they find it, but the genral public hardly seems to know it exists. The public tends to believe that everything written two thousand years ago was sacred, the work of one saint or another.' " [More about midrash pg. 55-57.

...'No, I am certainly not an Avenging Jew, whatever that may be.'

...'The Jews are skilled craftsmen and engineers at the very least, and it is quite possible that they also command black arts.
