I just kind of feel like instead of blaming God for letting it happen, maybe you should blame the Nazi guarding the gate for doing it to you.

Eh, I just place plenty of blame on both parties if indeed they had ample power to stop the situation.

what i think he is thinking: why would god let him be in a situation like this and let it happen.

But from there wouldn't it follow that if God were to do that it would require that if God made it so it couldn't happen then he is taking away the Nazi's ability to do that. That means the Nazis can't choose to do that bad thing. So that means he wants God to take away the Nazi's free will to do that. How about looking at it the other way. Why not thank God for making it so nothing worse happened.

It's like the gun argument. Gun makers give the opportunity for people to get a gun and use it but you wouldn't blame the gun company for a murder someone else committed would you? In that way God gave the Nazi the ability to choose to do those things to the prisoners but you can't blame him for their choices.

But the Jews are God's favorite people. Any other time we would have ridden anyone who threatened the Jews with a plague.

I think he says something closer to "a chosen generation." As in it's that generation that got those boons. But it doesn't mean he gives them ultimate protection and a guarantee of safety from harm. In fact, if you look at the bible, I think you can agree the Jews don't exactly get an easy life. And not all Jew even believe in God, some can be atheist. This one seems to be, is it because he lost it during the Holocaust? I have no idea. Just saying.

Jew here. Being chosen just gives us more responsibilities. I mean... if we do all 613 of our commandments we get a better slice of heaven than non-Jews who fulfill their 8 laws, but that's about the only better treatment we get.

Even our messiah won't make the whole world Jewish. He'll just provide a golden age for the Jews...

Judaism isn't a religion that demands everyone join like a cult. It is a religion that tries to be small and commited. The greatest goal of the Jewish people is to teach non-Jews to do the 8 noahide laws.

The prohibition of Idolatry.
The prohibition of Murder.
The prohibition of Theft.
The prohibition of Sexual immorality.
The prohibition of Blasphemy.
The prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive.
The requirement of maintaining courts to provide legal recourse.

We aren't that spooky...

"Nazis ain't **** but ho's and tricks"

My guess is someone probably wrote that somewhere...
