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

saracii. pentru informatiile tale multi dintre ei au fost si mai sunt inca nume de referinta in lumea oamenilor de stiinta. De exemplu (se poate verifica si o sa vin cu precizari daca nu sunt crezut pe cuvant) cazul lui paulescu cel care este adevaratul descoperitor al insulinei. Sunt masteranzi in afara care isi fac dizertatiile din opera acestui om insusindu-si descoperirile pe care el le-a facut. Mai mult inca in facultatea de medicina opera sa a ramas de referinta fiind un element obligatoriu de bibliografie. hmm...niste....saracii de ei. Exemplele ar putea continua. Nu stiu de ce insist sa continui aceasta discutie cand e clar ca esti total in afara subiectului (fara nici cea mai mica intentie de a te jigni). Si Byron si Yeats au fost "niste" domni poeti in viziunea ta nu?

maimu' orica au ! Plus ca multi din cei mai faimosi scriitori britanici erau irlandezi sau scotieni :
Walter Scott (scotian , evident), J. Swift, Yeats, Oscar Wilde, G.B. Shaw (irlandezi).
Soldatii care au cucerit lumea si au dus la formarea Imperiului britanic erau in majoritate scotieni si irlandezi.
Dintre oamenii de stiinta vreau sa-l numesc numai pe scotianul Alexander Fleming , descoperitorul penicilinei.

Lecturã obligatorie

"Vei citi pe Virgiliu si pe Horatiu.
Vei iubi pe Catul ca pe tine însuti.
Vei urma, cel putin, ruta lui Ulise
între bordelul Circei
si avutul sotiei sale.
Vei tine pe Propertiu sub pernã,
epigramele lui Martial pe cuirasã.
La dreapta ta, Tibul,
oda sa cãtre militari, negustori si marinari
(acest neam ce dorea a-i expropria singurãtatea)
Vei avea societatea lui Villon de partea ta
si a lui Arhiloh din Paros, ce-si pãrãsi scutul spre
a ne lãsa poemele sale.
Alãturi de ei muzica, singurãtatea sonorã a lui San Juan.
Vei iubi pe Manrique cum pe Vallejo însusi
pentru cã ambii erau tristi si se îndrãgeau.
De-ti lipseste Quevedo, unde vei merge?
Nu uita de Góngora
(pentru binele tãu propriu mentine-i separati).
Cu Garcilaso învatã
ceea ce taie o spadã într-un învins
si multumeste-i de ceea ce fãcu pentru graiul tãu.
Alãturi de el, pentru motive identice,
Darío al tãu, te rog, fratele tãu de sînge.
Lui Federico, a cãrui limbã într-aiurea merele,
aplicã-i auzul precum unui melc.
Pe Neruda, de esti tînãr, uitã-l
pînã ce vei fi mare si între timp
adulmecã un pic Florile Rãului cum o fãcea el
(Metodicul, ictericul, aprinsul,
franctirorul vesnic adolescent,
inventatorul noului fior,
el care mînji peretii cu oxidul epocii
pentru ca toti sã ne pãtãm
Ch. Baudelaire,
te salutã si te invitã sã continui a fi poet).
Vei tine la cãpãtîi pe William Butler Yeats,
metis al lumii ca si noi
si tribul sãu ce traverseazã mereu,
producînd mari fii, pãrinti la rîndul lor ai altor fii ilustri
si cosmosul din Manhattan, noul Adam, Walt Whitman,
care a mîncat mãrul din paradis
si nu fugi în exil ci rãmase
îngrijind speciile.
Citeste, în fine, pe cei ce-ti fac plãcere
si pe cei ce nu-i amintesc din modestie, lene sau ignorantã
si pe cei ce mã uitã
si pe cei ce pe seama lor merg adeverindu-se.", ne tragem in poze.

"Iar treaba cu Elena, ideea de Elena, femeia. Cred ca imi este inaccesibila in a o intelege, pentru ca evident, n-am cum pricepe ideea de, eu insami fiind oarecum o. :)"

un baiat, yeats ar fi spus asa:

"de nu era elena una,
cu razvratirea si furtuna,
un pictor n ar fi fost sub cer,
s o ntruchipeze viu pe pinza,
cu farmec in severitate,
cu linii pure, delicate
cu gingasie n ochii i strinsa!
iar pacea de si inalta nimbul
acum, tirziu si cu temei,
e numai fiindca trupul ei
l a pipait si l stie Timpul!"

fa abstractie de partea cu pacea, a murit inainte sa vada zeitgeist, mno si era si poet

Yeats - de modigliani la: 23/01/2010 20:56:13
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)
When you are old

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

Căruntă, picotind lîngă cămin,
ia cartea asta și citind visează
privirea caldă, umedă și trează
a ochiului cîndva adînc, senin.
O, cîți cu dragoste sau cu minciuna
nu ți-au iubit al frumuseții har,
dar numai unul sufletul hoinar
și chipul de dureri schimbat întruna.
Te pleacă peste jarul de surcele
și trist șoptește c-a zburat iubirea,
mai sus de munții frați cu nesfîrșirea,
ca să-și ascundă chipul printre stele.
