    If tazers are allowed then everhone should be allowed to have them. I'm really more against the religious exemption than the weapons themselves. Secular countries should keep religious exemptions for most things down to a minimum.

    Great idea.

    I'd imagine a similar request from the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe is in the post.

    Pretty silly idea. Apart from the incident in Paris recently I am aware of no additional Threat to any Jewish community in Europe.

    Should we start giving prostitutes guns as well to protect themselves on the streets.

    SOMEONE should give them the statistics on how much of a threat a gun is to them & their families . trying to defend themselves from terrorist with guns, how awful. why don't they just make terrorism illegal?

    No we should legalize prostitution and open up heavily regulated and frequently checked brothels where all prostitutes and johns are tested regularly and condoms are required.

    Just like Amsterdam, it's just the smart thing to do.

    I'm pretty sure it already is?

    The armed police at the Charlie Hebdo offices didn't do so well, and they were there specifically to guard against a known threat. Random Jews with guns responding to random events are unlikely to fare any better.

    Yeah, I mean factor that in with the revenue from the inevitable marijuana legalization and 'Merica will be rolling in dough that we could invest in science, education, healthcare, infrastructure, and not the middle east.

    Besides, it's not like anti-prostitution laws have actually done anything to curb one of the oldest professions in human history. Sorry for derailing, starting a new thread. Feel free to join.

    I see the thread title and OP...

    then I read this:

    http://www.npr.org/blogs/parallels/...rb-jews-and-muslims-live-in-a-fragile-harmony

    Then I proceed to laugh in the Rabbi's face, because his comments are borderline inciting/inviting violence to occur in the name of self defense, where in Sarcelles, we have living examples of Jews and Muslims living in peace; to the point where a Muslim is married to a Jew.

    The Rabbi need to re-examine his principles according to the faith of his religion, as he sounds more like how an Al Qaeda or ISIS would become radicalized. He's responding to provocation, which is the wrong thing to do.

    Well, they are the Chosen People. And I'm sure 6 million or so of them would agree they get chosen way too often.

    Should be peas. Then it would be a peas plan. Or appeasement.

    No, just no.

    What a bunch of muppets. Have they truly lost the plot. That would be the start of the Third World War, and it is totally unnecessary. We do need to maintain some context, that group has more risk of dying from obesity. Carrying a gun is totally unnecessary

    Do the justifications that Germany had for WW2 ring a bell? This and radicalizing yourselves by feeding into the provocations of another radical faction of another religion smacks of war on a global scale, and that isn't even compounded with one side's invocation of Holy War.

    In short (and I'm sure many a people reading this thread would have asked the same question on many a different occasion), Why Feed the Troll?

    I think a lesson Jews learned from the ghettos during WWII was not to let themselves be disarmed again. Because anti-semitism is never much further away than a long economic recession.

    Since they didn't have weapons to speak of in the ghettos, what was Germany's justification as it relates to this discussion?

    You seem to have taken the wrong lesson from history.
