Kristall Nacht in Arizona - Arizonian Progrom - Latino Guitarrist on the roof - Funny Comments in the Huffington Post from Nice and Kind People !
Arizonian Progrom :
Latino Guitarrists on the Roof or Mariachis on the roof :
Fiddler on the Roof is a musical, Broadway production and movie, and set in Tsarist Russia in 1905. It is based on Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Milkman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope with both the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—each one's choice of husband moves further away from the customs of her faith—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
Some Sephardim Jews from Sefarad ( Spain ) seem very similar to Latinos ( after living thousands of years in Spain )
Ashkenazi Jews : the word Ashkenazi means German in Hebrew
While Ashkenazim can be religiously subdivided into Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist, etc, the Sephardim have remained largely homogeneous and more traditionally religious in what, for lack of a better term, is called Orthodox. However it is an Orthodoxy that encompasses the entire spectrum of Sephardim, with obviously some Sephardim more religious than others, and due to the influence of philosophers like Saadia gaon and Maimonides who attempted to integrate known science and Aristotlian reason and logic into what has become known as Rational Judaism (see later) it is usually, in practice if not in dogma, often less rigid than one would expect. In contrast in Ashkenaz, dogma and tradition took on its own force even if subsequent theological arguments proved the basis to be incorrect.
My comment :
But what about the Tourist and Convention Dollars for Arizona ??. Because Corporate and Business Employees will be harassed if not Milk White, and Corporations are going to be losing money when their employees are in jail. Business Corporations will shun Arizona.
And who is the foolish tourits that will go to Arizona if not perfect Nordic ??? that is Looking, Blond and Blue Eyed Viking.
Jan Brewer, Arizona Governor, To Act On Tough Immigration Bill
April 23, 2010
From Huffington Post - Comments from Common People :
Sorry that I forgot to include some alias of Commentators :
Blacks in South Africa were required to carry ID papers at all times. So were Jews in pre-war Germany. Are we going to go that way? As far as I'm concerned, the only papers a person needs to carry are driver's license and insurance if he or she drives a car and an ATM card for quickie withdrawals or purchases. Anything else is superfluous. This law stinks and I hope Brewer has the strength of character to veto it. I also think it's probably in contravention of federal law and it will be struck down.
Comment 2 :
Those who are arrested will have to "prove" they are citizens by carrying their birth certificate or passport with them at all times. Since non-Hispanics won't be required to do that, those who are arrested will be treated differently than other Americans, which will cause the number of lawsuits to skyrocket. Expect some of the arrestees to be beaten or to die in custody.
Needless to say, even though Hispanics might be Arizona's primary concern, those from India, Pakistan, the Arab states, South America, the South Seas ... anyone who is 'different' can expect to be rousted, arrested and generally treated badly as 'unAmerican in appearance'.
Comment 3 :
On a positve note, as a result of this bill, we will soon see waves of young Hispanic Arizonans out getting the community registered to vote and ultimately those who represent the state will reflect the true ethnic makeup of it. In the meantime, if it is signed into law and not overturned, we will see a lot of civil disobedience and unrest. This bankrupt state will lose much of its convention and tourism business and which multinational high or low tech corporation would consider investing in a state where their employees will be subject to such harrassments? In addition, if older illegals are deported, thousands of whom have grown children born here, do you think these young Americans will idly sit by and allow their parents to be removed? In a kneejerk unconstitutional response to a serious complex issue, , the Republicans of my state have lit a real firecracker. It's just overwhelmingly sad.
Comment 4 :
As a democrat, I love this. Republican are alienating the fastest growing ethic group in the United Sates. Do they realize that the Hispanic population is growing while the white population is shrinking... Not just in the United States but in Europe also. The Black population is staying the same and the Asian population is growing slightly. And the Muslim population is growing also within the U.S. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. That's why the United States will have major power shifts in the next 25 years. The Republican are making sure that Democrats get generations of Hispanic voting for a long time. Without the Hispanic vote, President Obama could not have won the white house plan and simple. Even with 90% of the black vote, he could not have won without the 67% Hispanic vote. Imagine the impact the Hispanics will have in the near future when their population double... And the Arizona law is just legalized racial profiling. How do a policeman suppose to tell if someone legal or illegal without harrassing them? There will be more legal Hispanic harrassed then illegal...
Sorry guys, but the only way to make this law as not racially profiling is to stop EVERYONE and ask them for proof that they are in this country legally. Stopping people because they LOOK Mexican would be racial profiling. I imagine there is a significant number of people in Arizona that are of Mexican decent and are American citizens, American indians, even greeks and Italians can look like they're of Mexican decent (everyone thinks my mother is Mexican because she has an accent and dark skin). I have a friend who's family is Mexican and she looks European (light skinned and blond). And what is proof? Are all citizens of Arizona required to carry around identification or they will be arrested? What constitutes proof?
This law is stupid and makes no sense. It is poorly written like most of Arizona's laws. If this law is signed lawsuits will be the status quo for local communities in Arizona. It means loss of freedom for ALL legal Arizona citizens
Stephen in Seattle :
This is also unconstitutional. Read the part that states that we do not have to present "papers" to the Government. This was put into the constitution as a remedy for the fact that the Brits, back in those days, randomly stopped people, asked for papers, etc. I guess next, people will be expected to house the police or the military to help enforce these illegal rules. Oh, that's right, the constitution also prohibits the government from forcing people to house soldiers.
This bill has no business being enacted on American soil. Build a wall, do whatever you have to do. However, random harassment of people by the police only promises to create bigger problems.
ya' know trolls, let me tell you something.
Illegals pay taxes like you and I, oh yes they do! They may use someone elses social security number, but they pay in none the less, and don't get anything back for it in the long run.
Having been bron and raised in Southern California I have known lots of illegals in my life and they pay in. Son when you complain about them, realize billions upon billions are going into the system and the most they get are emergency room visits, that's it!
This will be like California prop 187 that was ruled unconstitutional, let the backlash begin. It forever turned Califorina blue.
As a resident in a highly hisanic area in Arizona, I can tell you that this bill will do nothing to stop the border crossings and everything to give Sheriff Joe Arpaio a free pass to hassle minorities. I've read about his "sweeps" that he conducts here in town always under some ridiculous false pretense. Reporters that have written news stories about them end up behind bars for a day usually for some trumped up traffic violation. We are in serious trouble with our legislators here in this state. I truly feel this bunch is stomping sour grapes because McCain lost the election.
