9 Best Jewish Rage Tweets — Starting With Roy Moore’s ‘Jewish Attorney’

Biblically, Christianity is a religion of forgiveness and selfless love. Judaism? Less so. According to our oldest sacred texts we have an angry God and we are an angry people. We strike death blows on Egyptians. We gouge out the eyes of our enemies. We kill 200 Philistines and take their foreskins as spoils. Today the Jews are angrier, and funnier than ever.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of all of the Jews who were enraged this week:

The Jew lawyer in all of us:

Jews who recognize seasonal literature when they see it:

Jews who like Christmas but not scapegoating:

Friends of the Jews:

Jews who refused to let their location keep them from their tradition:

Sarcastic Jews:

Just Jews who are being Jews:

Furious Jews retreating other furious Jews

Jews who are succinct:

And finally, not rage, just rabbits:

Happy Hanukkah! May your rage burn on long after the eight nights are complete.
