  2. “Well. What a day this is! - Special day. Today is our centennial the one hundreds anniversary of the founding of Sunnydale, and I know what that means to all you kids: not a darn thing. Because today something much more important happens: today you all graduate from high school. Today all the pain, all the work, all the excitement is finally over. And what’s a hundred years of history compared to that? You know what kids? …”

Planned protest outside Cambridge Synagogue to “encourage” local Jews to take a stance on Gaza

To target Diaspora Jews with this, as if they have ANYTHING to do with Israeli policy, is an inherently antisemitic act. Diaspora Jews have nothing to do with anything Israel does, because they are not citizens of Israel, do not live in Israel, and do not vote in Israel, any more than any other citizen of any other country does.
It doesn’t matter if no one there shouts slurs, or has any “questionable” signs, the fact that they are specifically targeting JEWS with this action shows they cannot distinguish between policies of a country, and an ethnoreligious minority.
This is the kind of shit that makes Jews worldwide feel targeted and unsafe. And it’s because we are being targeted. "Our visible silence points to guilt, forgiving, and forgetting" - no, it points to your deliberate targeting of an ethnic minority based on the fact that they share ethnic ties to a country they don’t actually have anything to do with.
This is shitty activism.

Would they do this to a church? Nope! No, antizionism =/= antisemitism, but you cannot complain about Jews stating that line is blurred, if not outright crossed, with a lot of activism, when you purposely target Jews and put pressure on them that you would not with a gentile. 
And don’t think I didn’t notice that it was scheduled right before the synagogue would have likely scheduled its evening shabbat services, so that y’all can target the maximum amount of Jews.  

just wow.

    "A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks

    I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

  6. CAN WE TALK ABOUT MIDDLE EASTERN WITCHES AND WIZARDS THOUGH. AND HOW THEY'RE SPELLS WOULD OBVIOUSLY NOT BE LATIN, GREEK OR ANGLO SAXON, BUT INSTEAD LIKE ANCIENT PHOENICIAN, OR SOMETHING. AND THAT THEIR TIES BETWEEN SPELLS AND MAGIC WOULD BE STRONGER SINCE THEIR WORDS ARE MORE ANCIENT AND FAR OLDER SO THEY'D BE WAY MORE POWERFUL???? SORRY FOR THE CAPS?????

    NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR CAPS. PHOENICIAN SPELLS. ARAMAIC SPELLS. LANGUAGES MUGGLES DON’T KNOW ANYMORE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESERVED THROUGH WIZARDING SPELLS IN LITTLE POCKETS OF THE WORLD. SOURCE LANGUAGES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO ADAPT OR CHANGE ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LANGUAGES HAVE DIED AND PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO CAUSE LIKE, A NUCLEAR FALLOUT. IM SO EXCITED THANKS FOR THIS.

    Witches in secret pockets of Morocco who’ve been casting spells with ancient spices long before wands came about. Warlocks in Egypt who knew the double, magical, meaning behind hieroglyphics. A dead language? Latin and Ancient Greek have NOTHING on hieroglyphs. The veritable cacophany of ideas and spells and magic that the trading routes brought in. The Phoenecians with their many-striped sailboats proudly displayed Persian potion ingredients alongside spelled fishing nets woven by Palestinian wizards. Syrian magical folk meet Greek ones, and realize they can best communicate in the Ancient Greek all serious magical students learn. Curly heads bent over ancient spellbooks, and people stare as they converse in a language not spoken for hundreds of years.

    Excuse you but can we not forget the jewish lore masters, poring over their tomes in hebrew and aramaic, preserved from their exiled homeland into the diaspora.

    And the development of a syncretic magic in yiddish that mixes the subtle lore and subtle word power of the exiled levantines with the raw brute force of germanic magics. — how else did the golem?

    DIASPORA SYNCRETIC MAGICS

    JEWISH WIZARDS

    Yes to the Yiddish spells, too ;-)

    Jewish wizards offering clothing to house elves and then constantly debating among themselves whether using a golem or other magically-created entity with some semblance of sentience for manual labor for years or decades is essentially the same thing as keeping a magical being for the same purpose.

    See also: endless debates about whether one can use magic on Shabbat, and what sorts of magic qualify as “work”. Like, does it count if you enchant an object ahead of time?

    Also debates over the extent to which Divination counts as the “witchcraft” detailed in the Tanach. Actually, I bet there’d be scholars compiling detailed tractates about which spells are kosher, using extensive biblical commentary.

    JEWISH WIZARDS HAVING THEIR OWN EXTENDED TALMUD. HOW HAS THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE??

    Magic is a natural extension of the self; Therefore, one should be allowed to use magic on Shabbos. You might put restrictions on what kind of magic, and brewing potions (even ones that don’t require heat) and using wands…

    I wrote a paper for a Harry Potter conference on foreign wizardry and how the systems of magic must have evolved to be completely separate entities that have very little in common. We’re only seen a TINY portion of the wizarding world and for the most part it’s Western European. I like to imagine Bill Weasley had to extensively train for cursebreaking in Egypt, because you can’t just waltz into a tomb, wave your wand, shout Latin and expect it to work.

    I also love the idea of foreign magics being a bit wonky in a duel against each other because they’re not quite compatible. Like, it’s really hard to block a spell from a foreign wizard because you don’t understand exactly what you’re blocking against.

    God, so many foreign wizard feels.

    every time i see this come back around on my dash i see it with my edition of jewish wizards and it delights me

    also, this is a BEAUTIFUL thread

    True story: an Orthodox Jewish con attendee told me telekinesis counts as work. I cannot remember the precedence, but someone helped with construction by raising his arms to lift the blocks (Moses? Solomon?).

    GAMING - RPGs - DICE SHAMING

    Posted by vensari to imgur -  I’ve seen more than my share of ‘Pet Shaming’ pics on the interwebz but this is the first time I’ve seen ‘Dice Shaming’ photos posted by frustrated gamers.  I like what I’m seeing …

    I feel like I need to start making these because my fail at rolling is legendary and with playing a Humoran in our upcoming game, I am sure to be throwing my dice at the wall in frustration!
