It's that and an understandable persecution complex.
It's slowly disappearing with generations though.

The liberal younger people couldn't be any more welcoming.

It's worse in Prestwich near Manchester.
They do not like to mix with anyone. Even the young liberal Jews are cunts.

No worries mate.
Here is a post from TripAdvisor

If they love Martin Luther King you're all good!! Laughing out loud

Israel is not strange to people of African back ground, as been said in previous threads.

What would you expect from Jewish people? One of the most powerful and mysterious Biblical figures: Moses's wife - Zipora is believed to be African black. The most gorgeous female, described in Song of the Songs says about herself: "I'm blackiest and fairest of gaughters of Jerusalem!"

Any form of racism is strongly against Jewish culture. Please have a look, at the list of Dr. Martin Luther King's supporters, you'll find out most of them were Jewish.

You've got nothing to worry about. Come over and have a ball!

Yuri.

Was reading the other day about an area in the States with a high Orthodox population. They got themselves elected to the school board with the intent of cutting off funding to the local public schools.

All their kids went to private religious schools so they didn't want to pay for the public schools. Laughing out loud

There are some cunts but let's not go Jew bashing.
I found 99% of them cool when I was there.

I found muslims a lot worse when I was travelling around the Middle East.
I'm not bashing muslims either.
It's perspective.

There is racism everywhere so it wouldn't stop me travelling unless it was countrywide like the gay bashing in Russia. They can just fuck off.
Everywhere I have been they're the loudest and rudest cunts I've ever known.

Sarcasm yes?
Openly gay people will be beaten up. That's a fact.

Forgot to mention there's quite a large Ethiopian Christian and Jew population there now as well as many visitors from Ethiopia… so you're very unlikely to come across 'racism'

And as someone said before there is a lot more genuine racism towards anyone darker than themselves in the Arab/Muslim parts of the world.

BBC one now is going to show Tel Aviv and its tolerance of gay people ..thought it relevant to the chat.

Never been to New York before. Am I mugging myself getting a cheaper hotel in Greenpoint rather than springing for Downtown?

I went to NY in the early 2000's and stayed in the Bronx, everything was a trek. Really depends what your looking to do, I suspect the shopping isn't as good as it once was.

Seoul is great. Very on par with Tokyo for most things.
Some good shopping and crazy nightlife.
I'm not much of a tourist so I can't tell you about things to see but we visited a great theme park about 45 minute bus ride away.
Food is amazing but it isn't cheap.

We also got a very cheap flight to Tokyo with Jetstar I think.
Something like £45 return and there's no visa need so it's well worth it.
The only bad thing is Incheon is pretty far from Seoul.
Mind you, Narita is petty far too and expensive to get into town.

Worth it though. Just get there before the nuclear attack!

Thanks Morgan, that sounds interesting!

Will be a relatively short stay, maximum 7 days in total, 5 days in town, so not interested in going to Tokyo, also because went last year.

If anyone has any info on things to do\see is appreciated

5 days is loads of time.
The student area is cool for vintage stuff and obvious big stores down Gangnam.
Make sure you try the pork knuckle. Looks like Alien.
You just get a load of pork cut up and lettuce as the wrap.
Loads of dips to add and bits and bobs like kimchi.
Samjang dip is fuckin amazing.
I hear the tour of Samsung is very good but it's not my thing.
