de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

Orig. a Hebrew of the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to those of the ten tribes
of Israel; later, any Israelite who adhered to the worship of Jehovah as
conducted at Jerusalem. Applied comparatively rarely to the ancient nation
before the exile (cf. HEBREW sb. 1), but the commonest name for contemporary
or modern representatives of this group, now spread throughout the world. The
word `Jew' is also applied to groups, e.g. the Falashas in Ethiopia, not
ethnically related to persons of the main European groups, the Ashkenazim and
the Sephardim.

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious

God Full of Mercy - de Cassandra la: 02/10/2006 01:23:58
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)

God-Full-of-Mercy, the prayer for the dead.
If God was not full of mercy,
Mercy would have been in the world,
Not just in Him.
I, who plucked flowers in the hills
And looked down into all the valleys,
I, who brought corpses down from the hills,
Can tell you that the world is empty of mercy.

I, who was King of Salt at the seashore,
Who stood without a decision at my window,
Who counted the steps of angels,
Whose heart lifted weights of anguish
In the horrible contests.

I, who use only a small part
Of the words in the dictionary.

I, who must decipher riddles
I don't want to decipher,
Know that if not for the God-full-of-mercy
There would be mercy in the world,
Not just in Him.

(Yehuda Amichai)

I know a man
who photographed the view he saw
from the window of the room where he made love
and not the face of the woman he loved there.

Raspundeam la comentariul anterior, semnat 'o adolescenta ipocrita'. Ea vorbea acolo de piramida lui Maslov. De aceeasi piramida vorbeam si eu.
Apropo de urcat pana in varf: m-a amuzat foarte tare textul unui personaj din Cartile Junglei a lui Disney: regele maimutelor King Louie. Suna cam asa:

"Now I'm the king of the swingers, oh, the jungle V.I.P.
I've reached the top and had to stop, and that's what's bothering me !"

Mi-am inchipuit scena: o maimuta in plina ascensiune sociala (în copac) care se crede buricul pamântului fiindca a ajuns in varf ! :D
Cam asa ii vad pe oamenii ce se cred grozavi (incusiv eu) : buni de râs.

dar nu-i bai, de-acum tu vei fi Thomas O'Malley, O'Malley the alley cat :)))

si-o sa canti asa:

I like a cheech-a-cheech-chee-roni
Like they make at home
Or a healthy fish with the big backbone
I'm Abraham deLacy
Giuseppe Casey
Thomas O'Malley
O'Malley, the alley cat!

I've got that wanderlust
Gotta walk the scene
Gotta kick up highway dust
Feel the grass that's green
Gotta strut them city streets
Showin' off my eclat, yeah
Tellin' my friends of the social elite
Or some cute cat I happen to meet
I'm Abraham deLacy
Giuseppe Casey
Thomas O'Malley
O'Malley, the alley cat!

I'm king of the highway
Prince of the boulevard
Duke of avant garde
The world is my backyard
So if you're goin' my way
That's the road you wanna seek
Calcutta to Rome or
Home-sweet-home in Paris
Magnifique, you all

I only got myself
And this big old world
When I sip that cup of life
With my fingers curled
I don't worry what road to take
I don't have to think of that
Whatever I take is the road I make
It's the road of life make no mistake, for me
Yeah, Abraham deLacy
Giuseppe Casey
Thomas O'Malley
O'Malley, the alley cat!

That's right
And I'm very proud of that

francezii vs americani vs restul lumii - de rodi la: 19/10/2004 04:22:40
(la: Filmele americane/vs/ filmele europene)
ummmm, nu. Leaving Las Vegas , American Beauty, Lost in Translation, Stanley Kubrik cu toate filmele lui... Coppola cu cateva si el.. la fel si Scorsese.
De partea franceza, Godard , Truffaut, Lelouche ( desi cam dulceag ), Ozon ( desi cam gay, mi-a placut Swimming pool, dar nu '5X2' ).. Nu , eu cred ca sunt cam la egalitate.
Dar nici francezii, nici americanii nu se compara cu italienii, polonezii sau rusii, care , dupa parerea mea, au cele mai bune scoli cinematografice. Mai nou asiaticii fac filme bune si ei. Unele exceptionale : King of masks( Tian-King Wu ), Spring, summer, fall winter and ... spring ( Kim Kiduk) , In the mood for love (Kar Wai Wong... whatever), Raise the red Lantern (Zhang Yimou), ca sa enumar doar cateva.

(la: carti care v-au refuzat)
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear -
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'

Pas.iti aminyesti?

"He had white horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was laid

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was"

fragmentul ala de moog l-am incercat la o orga de la catolici...:)))Cu picioarele:))

pt Honey in the Sunshine - de providence la: 09/06/2006 08:15:40
(la: Actori preferati)
In sfarsit cineva care considera ca John Malkovitch (asa se scrie?) e bun! E....nici nu gasesc cuvantul..super, fantastic nu-mi place, deci mai degraba asi folosi "genial". Nu am vazut multe filme cu el, dar dupa primul film m-a fascinat. Nu stiu ce anume...Are un talent care sclipeste nu doar pe ecrane, ci si pe scena, in teatru. Pt. ca -sa recunoastem- adevaratii actori sunt cei de la teatru.
Alt actor pe care il cam asimilam cu Malkovitch...e Jeremy Irons. Pacat ca din cauza aspectului de TBC-ist primeste doar roluri de perversi...sau negative..Oricum...e bun.
Iar cei doi "cavaleri" pe care-i consider the king of the movie...sunt Pacino si DeNiro.
La inceput nu-l suportam, mai tarziu (mai ales dupa The legend of the fall) mi-a trezit interesul Brad Pitt. Iar in Meet Joe Black m-a inebunit :) (sa recunoastem...e frumusel)
Iar actorul pe care in adolescenta il consideram un sex-simbol (ce prostesc nu?) e Richard Gere.
Alti actori deloc de neglijat: Cage, Washington, Freeman, Nickholson, Douglas Jr.
Actrite? Imi place f.mult (poate o simt mai aproape de personalitate mea) Sandra Bullock. E foarte naturala si Meg Ryan.
O vad ca pe o regina (inca...actuala) a cinematografiei pe: Meryl Streep, Emma Tomphson, Susan Sarandon

Now I'm the king of the swingers, ho
the jungle V-I-P
I've reached the top - and had to stop
and that's what's bothering me
I wanna be a man, man-cub
and stroll right into town
and be just like - the other men
I'm tired, of monkeying around

ho ! - hou be do
I wanna be like you - hou hou
I wanna walk like you - talk like you - too hou hou
you'll see it's truuue
and ape like me - hi hi
can learn to be,
you - hou hou, man too - hou hou

Rather be wrong and be sorry
Than misjudge and don't worry.

What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true
Give me the secret, mancub
Clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you

I wanna be like you

Walk like you, too
