Say there is another Jew who is being a bully, a mean person or just plain spiteful and angrily argumentative...
I read that harmful or useless speech is a more serious sin than murder yet we all do it at some point.
I have heard anger compared to idolatry as well, if someone is intentionally and with anger or malice speaking to or about a fellow Jew is that like murdering and worshipping idols?
Likewise if a person who claims to be Jewish harassed or has taken joy in belittling or hurting the feelings of another human being, how then should we deal with such a person?
Sometimes we can't avoid people like this, they show up everywhere and there is always one in every crowd.
How then does one handle the situation appropriately and decently when faced with such people?
How can we help people who act this way to grow past their anger and stop hurting others when all they do, sometimes everything that they do or say makes people seriously upset or angry?
How do we ourselves avoid falling into the trap of sinking to the levels of doing such things like this ourselves when faced with a mean, angry, spiteful, lying or back stabbing individual?
When someone hurts us and we want to take the eye for an eye what do we need to know as Jews to be a bigger person so that instead of yelling at someone for yelling we can make better choices about how to handle these things?
