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

Cassandrei – GB, săracii şi femeile - de Simeon Dascalul la: 26/04/2005 11:06:07
(la: Papa)
Cum n-am fost de faţă la discuţia papei cu Mussolini nu pot estima amploarea luptei de înlăturare a statuii unui panteist mort cu alţii laolaltă, uitat, recent descoperit şi adoptat ca simbol anticlerical.

Aici s-a auzit despre facţiunile din cadrul bisericii catolice doar acum cu ocazia noului papă şi „conservator” nu e un cuvânt reprobabil în sine. Dacă vrei să detaliezi care din elementele conservatorismului ar trebui blamate.

Mai întâi că nu văd ce ar putea să facă biserica pentru săraci mai mult decât acte de caritate. Categoric nu poate impune şi redistribui impozite care să mai egalizeze veniturile, toată lumea ar sări în sus, e împotriva celor mai solide convingeri moderne.

Nu ştiu dacă eşti împotriva lui Ratzinger, a catolicilor sau a creştinilor in corpore, incluzându-i pe ortodocşi şi reformaţi. Probabil a treia variantă cade că pe ăştia din urmă i-ai bifat la martiri. Vreau să menţionez că în baza religioasă a protestantismului intră şi predestinarea, ceea ce a dus la ideea de justeţe a condiţiei sociale din viaţa asta. În traducere liberă dacă n-ai bani asta e din vina ta. Cam departe de ideea de caritate.
Pe ce te bazezi când reproşezi abandonarea săracilor? Dispui de statistici referitoare la activitatea caritabilă a diferitelor confesiuni creştine?

Ce a făcut Ratzinger aşa de naşpa din punct de vedere social? A mers la şedinţe ale uniunii patronatului? Solidarizarea cu bogaţii ar fi suficientă ca să-l vopsească în negru, dar la cea partea cea mai interesantă refuzi să dai detalii. Vorbeşti ca şi cum ar fi chestii arhicunoscute, care nici nu mai merită discutate. Când de fapt de Ratzinger s-a auzit în România abia acum în aprilie.

> figuri ‘progresiste’ ... preoti, teologi, educatori, scriitori ... sprijineau rolul femeii in Biserica

Nu ştiu cum ar putea să arate o biserică „pe masura timpurilor”. Papa cu soţul său alături hirotonisind gagici? Nu, asta prea miroase a falocraţie. Cel mai bine ar fi papesa şi soţia ei.

RAC - de rodi la: 17/08/2005 18:30:07
(la: Dezgolirea femeii)
RAC, e greu sa mai adaug ceva la ce au spus deja alte forumiste precum zaraza si maan. Probabil ca fiind femeie inteleg mai usor (ce vor ele sa spuna).Asa ca o sa ma concentrez doar sa traduc pe intelesul tau, adica pe categorii a, b, c.
Faza ca te imbraci asa cum te simti tu bine (e foarte important sa te simti BINE in ce-ti pui pe tine), acordand mai putina importanta la ceea ce cred altii ca ar fi bine sau rau, estetic sau sexy, decent sau indecent, ai inteles-o, da? N-o mai explic, ca e fenomen general in societatea vestica. Ce naiba, daca deschizi o revista de moda si de acum zece ani, si tot iti dai seama incotro va trendu’. Femeile se imbraca depinzand de mood-ul in care se afla in momentul respectiv. Singurele lucruri “exterioare” pe care le iau in considerare fiind moda zilei, si eventual dress-codul de la servici. Nu stiu nici o femeie care sa-si zica “ mama, cedea barbati am sa cuceresc eu azi daca-mi pun fusta aia mini”. Eventualele “victime” masculine pe care le fac ele along the way sunt pur colaterale (Sigur ca nu vorbim de prostituate aici, nu?).
Ei, si acum sa vorbim despre aceste victime colaterale putin. Ele se impart in vreo cateva categorii:

• Barbatul care face avansuri sexuale libidinoase directe. Specia asta e tot mai rara in societatea vestica deoarece e ilegal. Reactia femeilor : de repulsie.
• Barbatul care are probleme cu glandele salivare, si care nu se mai pot concentra la nimic altceva cand vad vreun decolteu mai adanc sau un picior mai lung si subtire de dama. Reactia femeilor : de jena, mila , apuci si tu de ce poti ca sa acoperi sursa de tortura.
• Barbatul ofuscat si prudish, cu ceva complexe sexuale, care vocifereaza ceva de genul ”uite si la destrabalata asta”. Ce sa-I faci, pentru unii strugurii sunt acri. Reactia femeilor : de indiferenta.
• Barbatul , gen contabil, geek, care-si vede de treaba si isi poate tine in frau pornirile animalice la servici si pe strada. Unii sunt atat de absorbiti de munca lor incat nici nu observa. Reactia femeilor : thank God!
• Barbatii care observa ca ceva e sexy in the air, dar se abtin de la demonstratii necontrolate, desi “sufera” in tacere. Reactia femeilor :” hmmm, iata un tip interesant”
• Barbatul gen “mister Big”, galant, se uita la tine cu admiratie, zambeste, iti face un compliment, si pleaca mai departe. Reactia femeilor: obsesiva…
• Barbatul gay: “ Oh, hi sweetie. Look a’cha, you look goooorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! So sexy!” hug - hug, kiss - kiss. Reactia femeilor: relaxate, resufla in sfarsit usurate. Un dus rece binevenit peste atmosfera asta atat de incarcata de sexualitate.

Mai vrei amanunte? Iti mai dau. Da’ din curiozitate. Tu din care categorie faci parte? N-o interpreta ca atac, ca si eu mi-s blanda.
Oricum , mesajele mela ajung cu barca asa ca… n-ai de ce te teme.

nu îndeajuns de săraci după unele opinii - de Simeon Dascalul la: 27/09/2005 13:06:28
(la: despre saracie)
m-am prins că n-am răspuns direct la întrebarea din titlu, aşa că revin – da, eu cu tot neamul meu consider că ne încadrăm cu succes la săraci, pauperi, clasa de jos, oricum s-o fi numind

dar sunt cel puţin două grupuri care ne refuză încadrarea asta

primul grup e constituit din cei care-o duc de la sensibil mai rău la mult mai rău ca noi; un văr, încă la liceu, după ce-a stat o săptămână la noi în casă i-a raportat maică-sii la întoarcere despre belşugul năucitor în care ne lăfăim; bogăţia noastră avea dovezi incontestabile: nu apăream cu restanţe la cheltuielile de bloc, mai rău, ne pusesem centrală; eu şi surorile mele aveam blugi cumpăraţi noi, nu de la second; în frigider se găseau tot timpul lămâi, nu se cumpărau doar cu un motiv anume
în plus am ieşit cu prietena mea la o pizza şi l-am luat şi pe el; aproape şase sute de mii stricaţi într-o seară e o sumă cam neruşinată pentru unii ce se distrează cu întreţinerea din pensii şi salarii „normale”; morala ar fi să ieşi în oraş numai cu cei cu venituri asemănătoare

faţă de ăştia într-adevăr mi-ar fi jenă să mă plâng de bani, nu că aş duce-o bine, ci că o duc prea bine faţă de ei

dar mai apare şi al doilea grup, din fericire nu prea avem tangenţă cu oameni de felul ăsta, aşa că nu ne enervăm
în august a picat în oraş un fost coleg de-al părinţilor mei, cărat în Danemarca repede după revoluţie; omul părea că se integrase bine în ţara de adopţie şi acum manifesta o sfântă indignare occidentală faţă de obiceiurile reprobabile ale românilor; s-a supărat şi pe mine aflând că îmi fac banii de buzunar din proiecte la negru, fiindcă de asta se duce de râpă ţara asta din lipsă de disciplină fiscală şi exces de economie subterană; i-am zis că oricum mi se pare că-s prost plătit, dacă din suma asta s-ar scădea şi taxele nu s-ar mai merita tătă activitatea
neplăcut surprins de faptul că nu vreau să mă duc să lucru pentru a treizecea parte din venitul lui mi-a sugerat să-mi fac firmă, doar a auzit că sunt facilităţi pentru studenţii ce-şi fac firmă
cum era o persoană mai în vârstă şi cunoştinţă de familie m-am mărginit să dau din umeri
dar ar fi trebuit să-i răspund „de ce naiba te-ai dus să iei salar de la vikingi, dacă ştiai aşa de bine cum să te realizezi în România?”
am uitat să menţionez că după ce ne-a estimat apartamentul, boarfele şi mâncarea a ajuns la concluzia că „n-o duceţi chiar aşa rău cum se spune”
Ivy, rac - de Honey in the Sunshine la: 28/09/2005 20:37:28
(la: Am putea face posibilă întâlnirea cafegiilor ?)
pai eu zic ca cel mai bun "loc" e tocmai Romania...Cred ca toti ar merge cu placere, iar mare parte sunt deja acolo... Eu una nu pot promite dar daca se organizeaza ceva o sa ma straduiesc sa fiu acolo
Asa ca, rac, asteptam propuneri concrete.
