    There are no Jews in Israel

    Why did God let Hitler kill the Jews? It is a question that has troubled rabbinical scholars for decades. Since God had intervened to protect and nurture Jews in Biblical times, why had He forsaken them in the modern era?

    One possibility was offered by a Sephardic rabbi, Ovadia Yosef of Jerusalem, who suggested in 2000 that sinful Jews had been reincarnated during the Third Reich so that they could atone for their sins by suffering through the Holocaust. His theory presumes a kind of racial/religious purity: only Jews can be reincarnated as Jews. But if the Holocaust was intended as an especially heinous punishment for heinous sinners, why limit it to Jews? Why not reincarnate really bad Catholics, Communists and Muslims in the bodies of those destined for the concentration camps? Indeed, why not go to the other extreme? If Jews are morally superior, maybe only non-Jews were reincarnated to suffer at the hands of the Nazis. Ergo, no "real" Jews died in the Holocaust.

    If history is repeating itself, a new crop of really bad non-Jewish souls have been reincarnated as the current residents of Israel, who will be exterminated by the Islamo-fascists. There are no Jews in Israel.

    Since when do Abrahamic religions subscribe to the dogma of reincarnation?

    Since back in the very early days. It has fallen out of favor for the most part in modern times.

    Some people do, and some do not. It is nor a major part of Judaism even for those who hold to it. I habe no idea what the OP is getting at except to claim that Jews aren't really Jews, i.e., to express antisemitism.

    I did not know this. I thought it just a Buddhist thing.

    All of the major world religions are hopelessly intertwined in their mythology/magic.

    If it were really antisemitism, wouldn't the OP be banned for 'discriminatory content'? You have to stop slinging that term around everytime you don't like what someone says.

    There is a hell of a lot more problem with the OP than simply that I "don't like what someone says." The OP is looking for an excuse to attack Jews, irrespective of whether it violates a PH rule.
