They say all publicity is good publicity..

But that's not always the case as we know..
Without intending to be arrogant, why not celebrate the positive aspects of what Jewish people contribute to the world and the the UK.
Who are your favourites - all time greats?

For me international would be 'Einstein' - not only for his great intellect, but also his brilliant hair style!
Uk Jewish hero would be: Sebastian Coe! My twin brother used to run the 800 metre race and what inspired me about both of them was their talent for the race, and that they were both winners in spite of suffering from asthma!

Do you have a favourite international and British hero/ine?

An interesting blog, but Coe isn't Jewish.
Back later!

Interestingly, Stephen Pollard once wrote that "The Master" in Dr Who - the late lamented Roger Delgado - davened in shul, but I think SP must be mistaken, since RD attended Cardinal Vaughan School and his father came from Spain - not too many Jews there when the father was born in the 19th century - and his mother was French/Belgian, apparently Catholic through and through.
In other words, I can't nominate the impressive Mr Delgado.
How about Disraeli, the great statesman and writer? It wasn't his choice to go to the baptismal font aged 12, but his father's. Dizzy always considered himself a Jew in the ethnic sense - I'm making him my choice!
Still mulling over the gals - Our Melanie, perhaps...

The moment I read this I thought, "Coe's Jewish...? Never knew that!" I did a quick bit of research and it appears he's not, however. Pity - he was a hero of mine when I was a young 'un.

I expect some twerp thought he'd knocked off the hen! After all, he's a tad swarthy-looking, they must have reasoned...

Personally, I think Brian Epstein is the top British Jew: The Beatles named an album for him, Rabbi Saul, and a single, Love Me Jew.

Moshe, there's a Beatles song with lines that some of the more paranoid insist say "Baby, you're a big fat Jew"! The old grey matter hasn't yet kicked in - I need some more of that Kenyan filter - and I can't recall which song it is.

Not quite Yvetta
I've had my coffee and it's mishearing
"Baby you're a rich man too"
From "Baby You're a Rich Man" on the album "Magical Mystery Tour" 1967.

Jon, but you can see why some paranoid androids might think the refrain was "Baby, you're a big fat Jew". But kudos for knowing Beatles lyrics.

I do not have a favourite hero or heroine. Whatever people say, but I think Jews are very special people. They are always good at the field they've chosen and achieve success. Well, I've read one analysis about politics in different countries (found it at shared files SE http://filecraft.com ) and it appeares that Jews represent the majority almost in any parliament. Well it is strange, but I think that the situation can be explained with their unity and cleverness.

just because the Jewish nature is to get that doing the right thing to kill, they have always been persecuted throughout history, even Shakespeare wrote about them.
I remember after the war, most Jews had nothing except maybe life.
even we, the British gave them a hard time they were interned in Cyprus and allowed the Arabs to arm themselves while stopping the Jews doing the same, on May 15, 1948 were allowed to disembark in the holy land was only Jews who were already on the ground that might help.of this little seed that we now have a nation that does not make scraps and make the change of green sand.
Arabs held this land for 2,000 years and all they had was after the sand, history will show the Jew in a good light despite the fact that at the time who have lost their way, but will live in peace final

So called I don't have any favorite hero or heroine. I understand that just because of the Jewish nature they need not to be pressurized, but as in history, they have always been persecuted throughout, moreover, even Shakespeare wrote about them. I am interested in writing Essay and working on it these days. Well it is strange, but I think that the situation can be explained with their unity and cleverness.

My favourite Jewish hero would be Anne Frank, but I understand she is not British, so here’s to Linda McCartney, who is a great inspiration to me as a woman, wife and mother.

As I have said, publicity is good if done faithfully and the published is true and correct, it never hurts anybody especially in business and artists and so with the organizations whether non-profit or institutions and this is also true as well as Tampa Car Accident Lawyers
