And yeah. So 

Judaism is blood based. Not really faith based (?) 

In that sense, Abrahamic tradition contains both contradictory? attitude towards ‘blood/lineage’.

  1. Blood (race) does not matter.
  2. Or blood matters (some positions in Islam do value ‘lineage’ - hereditary factor (from Prophet’s or his original followers or ‘Saints’ etc. Valued - revered/worshipped.)
  3. (Christianity might have this concern about ‘blood/lineage’ but seems to be more plainly ‘Universal (membership)’ religion?)

It’s not flat or clear or sorted - or coherent principle-wise - as we (just) imagine and project.
