FYI - "Smart" is slang in the UK for "well-dressed" (link)

comment Are the strangers in Deuteronomy 14:21 converts?
This question is a little bloated: it includes three or four questions / sub-questions. If I had the ability, I would vote for clarification from the author.

Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh - Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 494:21) states the same.

comment Is there a mitzva to make known the truth of Judaism to non-Jews
In the way of @DoubleAA, from whence have you learned that it is not a mitzwah to missionize? Why might you think that spreading the truth of Judaism would be a mitzwah?

comment If a woman's voice is considered nakedness, why would he ask to hear it?
I'm still bothered by the pasuq; but, the more I think about @wfb's earlier comments, the interim answers and the rest of what's going on in Shir HaShirim, the more I'm realizing the question might be baseless. She is permitted to him. Despite her voice being her nakedness, the greater context makes it quite clear that they are permitted to one another such that any her nakednesses (sp?) are not forbidden to him. Should I delete the question?

Can you provide any support for your claims?

@Scimonster I purposely didn't include the pasuq as I cited it twice. If you think it's really necessary, go ahead and leave it. Otherwise, I think it just clutters.

comment Do any Jews, ancient or modern, hold that Michael the Arch-angel is the coming messiah?
@curiousdannii RaSh"I on Daniel 10:13 (Hebrew, English‌​) makes it quite clear that Mikha'el is not human. See also Rabbeinu Sa'adiah Ga'on on Daniel 10:13 (Hebrew).
