In 2004, Shia contributed this short essay to the book, I Am Jewish. It is a collection of statements によって well-known Jews inspired によって the last words of journalist Daniel Pearl. Pearl was murdered によって Islamic terrorists because he was a Jew. The book was edited によって Judea Pearl, Daniel's father.
First off, let me make clear that I am in no way a Jew who attends Shabbat every Friday または puts t'fillin on before I go to sleep.
I am what あなた would call a claimer Jew. See, I claim to be Jewish because it is beneficial to be Jewish. I benefit from saying I am Jewish. How?
I have a personal relationship with God that happens to work within the confines of Judaism.
Judaism to me is the name of the telephone in my ハート, 心 that allows me to speak to God.
Really, I feel cocky when I say I am Jewish, not bad cocky, but good cocky. Because what I am really saying is that I am one of the few chosen ones out there. I made it; God chose me and I take pride in that
