    Dude, it is a hassle trying to have a debate with you because you cannot even read.

    Dickinson is a English and Scottish surname. It is not Irish. That was mentioned several times.

    Janice’s father did not immigrate from Belarus nor was he born in Eastern Europe. His family had already been in the United States, and for the last time, she is not Jewish. There were plenty of non-Jewish Eastern Europeans here before 1917, and most people from Eastern Europe are not Jewish.

    You said Radcliffe and Johansson highlight their Jewish ancestry to get ahead in Hollywood because it is a very Jewish place, but now you are saying that celebrities try to hide their Jewish ancestry. You are contradicting yourself and failing to make sense.

    Oksana Grigorieva-Chernukha is not Jewish. Why would you want her to be in the first place? And Griogorieva and Chernukha are definitely not Jewish surnames.

    I have no idea why you want Dickinson and Grigorieva (who is totally irrelevant) to be Jewish. It makes no sense.

    Do you think Olga Kurylenko is Jewish as well? Because you seem to think everyone from Eastern Europe that is not blonde is Jewish.

    Sylvester Stallone has a Jewish grandparent on his maternal side, but he was raised as a Catholic and obviously identifies with his Italian heritage. What is wrong with mentioning that one of his grandparents was Ukrainian Jewish? What is the big deal?

    Furthermore, Michael Bay is Jewish and he practices the religion. This is well known, but you are now saying that he is not Jewish. For what reason?

    It seems you have hatred for Jewish people because you seem to be upset that someone brought up that Stallone has a Jewish grandparent, and you even stated that you want DICKINSON and OKSANA GRIGORIEVA-CHERNUKHA to be Jewish only because of the awful things they have said and done.

    You then said that Radcliffe and Johansson only speak of their Jewish ancestry to get ahead in Hollywood, and that it is unfortunate that Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael Douglas are not Jewish under Jewish law because their mothers are not but their fathers are. But when it comes to Dickinson and Griogorieva, they are hiding their Jewish roots because they are ashamed if them. What the hell? First, Johansson and Radcliffe only highlight their Jewish ancestry because it makes them look good, but Dickinson and Griogorieva are hiding it because they are ashamed? Give me a break. You are contradicting yourself and make little to no sense.

    Last but not least, this site is about ethnicity and ancestry. Guess what? Stallone has a Ukrainian Jewish grandparent, so it IS a part of his ethnicity, and there is nothing wrong with mentioning this.

    You keep saying she is a bigot, but the only reason you WANT Dickinson and Grigorieva, who are not Jewish, to be Jewish is because of their less than pleasant personas.

    Why are you not flooding Olga Kurylenko’s board with false accusations of her being Jewish? Why are you not doing the same for Natalie Wood? They are both from Eastern Europe.

    There is no reason to be ashamed of being Jewish in Hollywood, and YOU even said that yourself, yet you are accusing people you do NOT like of being ashamed of their Jewish roots and hiding them because you dislike them.

    By the way, even if Dickinson and Griogorieva had Jewish fathers (which they do not), according to your logic, they would not be Jewish under Jewish law because their mothers are NOT. At least try to be consistent when you are spreading your lies

      Continuation: I wouldn’t be angry, if smb. mentioned, that Stallone’s atheistic grandfather had jewish ancestry. But I’m angry, that jewish immigrants from USSR spread in web a WRONG INFORMATION, that his mother is 100% jew, and some ignorant persons believe it, and he lost a lot of fans.

      Not my bussiness. If this jerk doesn’t care what people
      tell about him, it his problems. I like him as an actor,
      but he’s really stupid.

      Ridiculous, the west (judaistic) jews never claimed, he’s
      a “jew”, cuz they know he’s not one of them. Himself
      always hides this part of his heritage even to begin
      and law-points of his carriere.
      HE would be really ashamed, if Dickenson turned up to
      be jewish. But like his friend (yes, he’s still his friend!)
      Gibson, he’s not a great expert for slavic looks and names
