@ Seth J No one here is questioning the holiness of Torah/Tankh from the Jewish perspective. An nither this site is just confined for the Jews to participate. Belief has to be rational or logical in order to be valid and accepted by the masses! But individually speaking, one is free to beleive in the holiness of whatever one wants to.

@Seth J I like to know the philosophical justification.

@ Shmuel Brin If that was the scenario, then that was a cruelty done to Jews. But again, the question remains there: Why jews are allowed to earn interest from others and not from the Jews?

@ Double AA This does not make sense at all! This is prejedice.

Can you justify your claim? What advantage does Hebrew has over Arabic? Arabic is alive and will remain alive for the times to come! The highest form of Arabic literature is the Quran. Compare the Quran that was revealed 1400 years ago and compare the one now...no differnce at all. What you will say about Torah? You are not even sure what language Abraham(may peace and blessings be upon him) and Moses (may peace and blessings be upon him) used to speak!

@Isaac Moses We are children of Abraham(may peace and blessings be upon him). Our interpretation is different but we share common roots and our core law is mor or less the same. What is really makes things bitter and conflicting when facts are distorted and concoctions take their place because of sectarianism and prejeudice. I am here to learn, search and seek the real facts based on genuine theological evidence. I presume that this forum is not based on one Jewish sect but represents Judaism in its entireity. Hope this forum helps me in my objective!

@Eytan Yammer The difference between the Shakesperean age and the modern English age is hardly 500 years. But if you talk about the Hebrew of Torah, or the language that Abraham, Yitzhak, Yishmael and Yaakov(may peace and blessing be upon all of them) used to speak then the time difference is so huge. That really makes me feel to doubt if the modern Hebrew or Yiddish is close enough to convey the full meaning of what message the scriptures would convey. Also what is Judeo Arabic or Ladino? Thankyou for adding so much to my information.

But what is really the assurance or guarantee that Hebrew language spoken today is the same Hebrew Abraham (may peace and blessings be upon him) used to speak? Also how much of Yiddish is classical Hebrew? Thanks for the information. :)

This is where the difference in moral guidelines lie! You being a Jew can only recoginze Jews as your brothers. While in Islam, everyone being the children of Adam belong to the same fraternity. You can lend us money on interest but Islam forbids us to lend money to you or anyone on interest!

@MonicaCellio Thank you for updating me dear sister. I fully appreciate about your faith and feelings. But i just would like to ask you an important question: "Are only Jews allowed on this site to participate?" What if a Hindu or an idol worshipper comes in and begin praising his gods in his questions or comments then how would i and you react?

@Jon Ericson I am here to know about the Jewish perspective of what Rabbis of his times reacted upon his teachings. Honestly, since Chritianity evloved and took the current form many years after the times of Jesus therefore the Christianity site cannot really answer to my question. Although, the bible does speak a lot about the incidents but versions according to some other person is not a credible source...well atleast to me (this is a separate debate). What i want to know is the Jewish version of the history.
