Q: China needs Jews?

I have decided that China needs Jewish people. In the US at least, art, literature, music, and higher education all benefited from the influence of Jewish people. They whole stranger in a strange land of gentiles, and the focus on education and spirituality at the expense of owning land. Valuing literacy not for exams and jobs but to read the Torah, and finally, lets face it, to humble the locals who insist that "Only Chinese are clever enough to blah blah blah". Well Jews have done everything Chinese have done, and more. Traveled all over the world, won Nobel Prizes, and been treated like pooh by others. China may have been humiliated but hardly exterminated like the holocaust.

-Living in Harbin there was Jewish influence, a synagogue here, a school there, but of course it has been a century since they were used for their purpose...

-So could China import some Jewish intellectuals to change the climate? After all there are an awful lot of Marxist Jews, so couldn't they fit right in?

-p.s. I'm not Jewish, so I'm not writing this to praise myself.

China already has Jews.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaifeng_Jews

 

The Kaifeng Jews are members of a small Jewish community in Kaifeng, in the Henan province of China who have assimilated into Chinese society while preserving some Jewish traditions and customs. Their origin and time of arrival in Kaifeng are a matter of debate among experts.

 

Stop being so uninformed you all.....

I agree, and would add that the Jews gave us J.C. Now, if memory serves me, I actually had a brief conversation about Jews with one or more natives here. They knew only that Jews were famous for being bankers, as I recall. Do remember that they are taught in school to laude Adolf Hitler, in parts because his rise reflects their apotheosized leader's rise and in his fall is, to them, perhaps evidence that the USA and the UK seek to crush leaders who speak out against them.

Funny you should say that because people often claim Chinese and Jews share a lot of similarities including close families, families that pressure kids to study hard, families that focus on money and status, just to name a few. Now what China could use is intellectualism, and there is a lot of that amongst Jews. What China doesn't need more of is guanxi based money obsessed culture. Just as Chinese look after those In their circle and do business with them, Jews tend to do the same on tightly knit Jewish communities where the synagogue is a place for networking with other moneyed and connected Jews. These networks can lead to croneyism, nepotism, and financial corruption that are common in both Chinese and Jews. Another problem with Jewish influence would be militarism. Now, a few Jewish intellectuals in china wouldn't cause that but a glance at the military industrial complex in the US and the Zionist government of Israel shows aggression beyond a country's borders that lines the pockets of the greedy well connected few. China doesn't need to get aggressive in the Middle East to serve Zionist interests. And China doesn't need to be controlled by corrupt lawyers and bankers whether Jews, wasps or anyone else who is part of the club. I'm part Jewish by the way.

Actually its the Arab and African countries that need Jews not the chinese. Chinese are very similar to jews with a developed economical index, a culture thats solely focused on money and how to get more of it at any cost. The jews are who really control the USA, so imagine what would they do if they have 1.3 billion undereducated ppl under their control. 

 

Hint: WW3 in order to obtain oil, gas and more money

Now that's a full blown racist question. Let me answer with an equally racist answer which I'm sure you'll have no objection to since we're both being equally racists.

 

If there's something Yangs know, it's that they'd better keep their backyard as far away as possible from Soroses or Rockfellers' hands if they want to keep yanging for themselves.

Spares the cost of kicking them out every 70 years or so.

What China needs - as does the rest of humanity - is a change of perspective.. the first being, that "China" doesn't exist. There are only humans who choose to accept responsibility for their actions - or not (by claiming a 'higher' authority - such as the 'state').

As Hitler once said, I shall leave you a handful of  jews who they will rule the world.

 

Hitler prophecy came true in a sort of way.

It is true that the Jews are talented people. However you have to be very careful doing business with them. Their business ethics suck. 46% of the billionaires in the US are Jews.35% of the CEOs are Jews. Nepotism rules. My personal experience with Jews is I would never ever again do business with them.

OP, you mention you are not Jewish, but yet only mention [reputed] positive aspects of them. Have you even bothered to research possible negative aspects of them, or are you wishing/wanting this opinion of yours to be one sided ?! Pray tell.

So, you are saying society can only benefit from the presence of Jews in society ? because to speak anything negative invites "Racism". Wow, seems obviously one sided to me then. Maybe since they are so awesome, perfect, etc they should rule the world for all of us gentiles. oh, wait, werent they kicked out of like 100+ countries throughout the ages "for being so good".

To add to my earlier comment about Jews. If you think Jews do not rule the US you are out of touch. Wall Street - Banking - TV - movies ( talk about nepotism) -  Newspapers - 30% of CEOs - 46% of billionaires - just to name a few.  If you go to try and get a job with a company that is run by Jews. There are thirty applicants 29 non Jewish and one Jew who do you think is going to get the job? Nobody except Jews like Jews the world over. Why?

Actually Rasklnik one of the few positives I see of the power structure in China is that it's not controlled by Zionist bankers. At least I don't have to worry about Zionist bankers in China,

Judaism is a religion not a race. You can be a Jewish and Chinese at the same time smiley They are already enough Jewish people who moved their factories and wealth from US to China.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
