Dear Lisa is someone still Jewish by Halacha if their great, great grandmother was an Orthodox Jew and the Jewishness was passed down from mother to mother but the last couple of generations did not follow Jewish teachings?

Good question, Rubystars.  Let me research it and get back to you.

Rubystars, I've been thinking about your question.  It would really depend on whether or not the woman's daughters, or granddaughters converted to another religion.  If the woman's sons, grandsons or great grandsons marry a non-Jew, the children are not Jewish. 

YimachShemotoIslam, I think Ahmadinejad is serious.  We need to remember that tiny Israel is a first world country in a region of religious fanatics.  As such, Israel is an affront to Muslim/Arab honor.  As an example, compare the number of Nobel Prizes for the sciences and literature for Israelis to those of her neighbors.

So let's say a group of people were found to be the only descendants of one of the lost tribes of Israel, but yet they followed another religion, like Islam. Would the fact they were descended from the original Israelites hold any weight as far as halacha is concerned?

The hatred is based upon Nationalist (a Jewish state in the middle of the "Arab" world) and Religious (a Kuffar state in the Middle of the Dar al Islam) views, not jealousy.

Lisa adds:

Of course that's also true.  But I think part of it has to be jealousy.

I think in that case, they would need to undergo a formal Orthodox conversion to be considered Jews.  Remember, you're talking about many many generations, and the fact that they're practicing another religion.

I think in such cases there is doubt (safek yehudi) and so it requires conversion. In theory the female line can be traced back to Sarah, but in practice if someone's family line has been outside of Jewry for generations it must raise doubt, even if he/she claims that the female line has remained Jewish by blood.

Dear Lisa, once we're done with Iran's nuclear program should we focus on Pakistan's nuclear program as well? I think both programs should be destroyed.

Hi Yimach Shemo,

Good question.  Of course Pakistan is bad news.  However, they share a border with India, who also has nukes.  Naturally I think Israel and the U.S. should support India.

Dear Lisa, how are we going to convince Muslims that their religion is evil and that Islam preaches hate against non-Muslims? Are there any Muslims that do not hate or want to kill non-Muslims?

I personally don't care what religion they practice in their own countries.  If we weren't dependent on oil, it wouldn't even be an issue.  The problem I have is when they kill Jews in Israel, and when they demonize Israel to the rest of the world.  I should also add that I object to honor killings being done in the West.  Customs like that simply do not belong in First World countries.

Good one, Ron.  Helen Thomas is an excellent example of one Arab in the sea being pollution.  In fact, I would feel sorry for all the marine life with their water being polluted by her carcass.  Anyway, she's 89 years old.  Hopefully soon, she'll put us all out of her misery.

Helen Thomas gives Arab girls a bad name.

No to your first question. 

Regarding your second question, I have no idea.

As for your third question, thank you for thinking of me, but I'm much too old for Chaim.  He has stated on past Ask JTF shows that he wants a young Israeli woman in her early thirties, since he wants lots of children.

White nationalism is worse.  Most blacks aren't organized enough to carry out a genocide against whites if not for white liberals who feel sorry for them. 

I would say Hitler, which in no way lessens Stalin's evil.  Hitler wanted to wipe out and entire religious/ethnic group.

Obama is worse because most people are afraid of attacking the first black American president for fear of being called racists.  Obama knows that and is using it to his advantage. 

I would say the PLO and Hamas are tied.

I have no idea who Lionel Messi is.  Jay Z is a rapper, I believe? 

In any case, I HATE rap!.  It's disgusting.

My guess would be Iran.  Ahmadinejad has denied the Holocaust and has threatened to wipe Israel off the map repeatedly.  Iran also is a sponsor of Hezbollah
