My comment on a piece concerning the use of “Halacha hi b’yadua she´Eisav soneh l’Yaakov.”

Unfortunately I think the causation is the other way around. There’s a general philosophy in certain segments that all non-Jews hate us and are not to be trusted, appreciated etc. This medrash is used to prove the point but had it not existed it would not make a difference

An old medrash update:

Transfusion (or drinking) of blood or of its components has been thought as a rejuvenation method since ancient times. Parabiosis, the procedure of joining two animals so that they share each others blood circulation, has revitalized the concept of blood as a putative drug. Since 2005, a number of papers have reported the anti-ageing effect of heterochronic parabiosis, which is joining an aged mouse to a young partner.
