In general, ... discussions of politics or religion in MD are probationary at best. You can try to have them, and if most of the participants are calm and careful about what they say, they might conceivably go on for some time. But the unfortunate truth is that no matter how reasonable most of the participants might be, there will probably come a point in most of these conversations where we decide to close it down. The more reasonable and calm people can be in general, the more willing we moderators will be to let these conversations go on, rather than closing them at the first sign of trouble.
Just to be straight, I never considered myself a Jew, but Russian, which is what the other half of my family is.
