Anyway, am I misremembering something or do the Bene Tleilaxu not get along very well with the Jewish people?

Also, is it safe to assume that "the Unspeakable" is the Shoah?

Honestly I really would hope that we're not still commemorating the Shoah of 70 years ago 23,500 years into the future. But I unfortunately think we might.

And does anyone get along well with the Jews?

Well considering the prevalence of pogrom, it's likely that the Holocaust epitomizes a persistent fear of the Jewish people. I wouldn't be surprised if, 23,500 years into the future the Shoah has taken on legendary status and figures in their beliefs and cultural psyche like other stories of their people. Hitler probably looms the same way Pharaoh does over Passover.
moreh_yeladim wrote:And does anyone get along well with the Jews?

True, but since they're officially not supposed to actually exist in the future - they're a BG secret - any one group not liking them is significant. Of course, I could be misremembering something.

SandRider, how about Don't Ride K J A's Worm?

Surely Byron wouldn't delete that name since there are spaces between K, J, & A. He wouldn't understand the subtleties in that name! :wink:

Because he's FH's grandson.

The Bene Tleilax probably didn't know they existed.

He went about a page and a half back and forth with me about why the Bene Tleilax didn't like the Jews, and claimed that that was his interpretation of what Frank Herbert was trying to tell us about the relationship between the BT and the Jews...

...except he wasn't trying to tell us anything. I was wrong, and the boardadmin of the freaking official site accepted my wrongness as fact, and then made something up about FH?

Nope.

Then again, I'm content not to harass them over there.

Nope.

Fascinating. Apparently that's not based on anything.

I think it was definitely more than that (and I assume you probably do too). Think genetics ... :wink:

Really, now? Based on what? I was wrong. Blah blah blah...the conclusion.

BobaMatt wrote:I haven't gotten around to reading Dune 7 yet. Is that speculation, or is it from HoD and SoD?

So, since they didn't have samples, they decided to try to wipe out Jewish populations?


It's my interpretation of what Frank was trying to tell us during the later Dune novels. That's why the Tleilaxu dispised them so...keeping their genetic material unaltered or hidden from them was considered an abomination to the masters, IMO.

Really. Except that it's apparently not in the books.

Probably Frank told him all about it, off the record. (Frank had a private face, too, after all.) Just like he explained the Terminator Jihad to Brian over breakfast table bowls of Wheaties.

Yeah, right. :roll:

I guess it must be, because it's been rolling around in my head every time
I take a peek Over There. I'd had the impression of Frank as a rather
gruff, somewhat bombastic, occasional asshole for a very long time. One
of the reasons I always liked him as a person, as a literary figure. He'd
walk into the room and assume he was the smartest man there - and was
almost always right.

After I came in close contact with Merritt, and his whining stop attacking
my family
mantra, I kept hearing Frank saying : Oh, shut up, Byron.

Hey Merritt : why don't you and Brian stop attacking your family ?
atleast lay off the dead ones that can't slap you silly anymore ....

I guess he could have assumed the BT didn't like the Jew because the BT were Sufi.

Why? Do the Sufis dislike the Jews more than the Sunnis and Shiites? :?

No, it just implies that they are Islamic, many of which don't like the Book People.

I'm not trying to defend Byron, I'm just trying to imagine how he could have come up with this.

Muslims count as "book people."

Also, isn't a great deal of the universe adherent to some sort of Islamic offshoot religion at this point?
