The qualities that characterise the people of Israel

On 12 January 2011,, an online Jewish news agency, reported the words of Rabbi Dov Lior as he addressed a women’s health conference at the Puah Institute in Brooklyn, New York.

Lior said:
"Sefer HaChinuch states that the character traits of the father pass on to the son. If the father is not Jewish, what character traits could he have? Traits of cruelty, of barbarism! These are not traits that characterize the people of Israel…

A person born to Jewish parents, even if they weren't raised on the Torah, there are things that are passed on in the blood, it's genetic. If the father is a gentile, then the child is deprived of these things…

I even read in books that sometimes the crime, the difficult traits, the bitterness, a child that comes from these traits, it's no surprise that he won't have the qualities that characterise the people of Israel."
Any PC person out there think I’m anti-Semitic for telling tales on the Rabbi?

Hmm. Lots and lots of hands in the air. So I’d be an anti-Semite for reporting the anti-Gentilic pronouncements of a Jew?

Makes sense, I guess.

But only in a world gone bonkers.
