Interesting but, since I've never in-depthly studied Judaism I can't say whether that's accurate or not. I can say that not all Jews study the Kabbalah. And, not all Kabbalists are Jews.

Interesting - especially the point made at the end of the blog about being clear as to which religions one might "have a beef with". I suppose that I lump all Abrahamic religions together, including Judaism, mostly because that is how it's most widely accepted, and for the fact that we have for decades been embroiled in Middle Eastern conflicts among which is the defense of a strip of land that has nothing to do with our nation or our nation's security, but everything to do with a promise interpreted from a book written by and about people living several millenia ago. The particular Judaism described in the blog may or may not have anything to do with that conflict. That is my main "beef" with Judaism. Some would accuse me of being anti-semitic for that reason. I most certainly am not. But I am pragmatic, and see that defense as a waste of lives and resources.
