Well, now the Pope and the Dalai Lama have weighed into the Climate Change debate, endorsing actions on a moral issue. So, does the Jewish community also see climate change as a moral issue? So far, I have not seen anything from my community on the subject.

You do realize that both of those religious leaders are want to remain on the popular side of any issues don't you? This means nothing since neither one can even read a scientific paper on the subject and understand it.

I'm Jewish, I live in London - there's only 220,000 Jews in the UK - so it's hard for a clear voice to come through as a community leader.

I don't want to be too political, but I'm pretty frustrated with how a lot of Jewish voices are very self-appointed, and do things to stir up trouble for the community. For instance, I've always lived outside of the bubble of the community, and always found London very welcoming and tolerant - but I can't pick up a newspaper without reading 19 articles on the rise of antisemitism, which in itself is likely to create a greater separation by making us seem conspiratorial.

Israel, for all it's faults, is a huge home of technology and development, Jews are an interesting community because before the 1980s we were hugely left wing, massive socialist community. Since then the community has become more right-wing/centrist/socially progressive types - but a lot of the younger generation vote for Jeremy Corbyn and the Green Party (maybe just to wind up their parents)

Israel was the ancient home of the Hebrews and not the Arabs. They are want to live in peace with all and they have except with the Palestinian Authority. The Iranians are doing nothing more than the Democrats are here - thinking that they can obtain and retain power by making an enemy that does not exist.
