Best Answer

It is a paraphrasing of the Talmud.

"Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world."

- Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 4:8 (37a)

What are Jews beliefs on war?

In Judaism there is a saying: he who saves one life, saves the entire world. This expresses the fact that Judaism cherishes human life. Historically the Jews have never been a war-like people, but we do believe in self defence and of course, with Israel surrounded by large and hostile Arab nations, the Israelis have been forced to go to war purely in order to survive. But Judaism has always cherished life and of course, teaches 'thou shal not murder'. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is the world going to come to an end in 2032?

No. They said the world was going to come to an end on December 21, 2012. It didn't. And now they're saying that it is coming to an end in 2032? Still waiting... But I have to tell you that the world is going to come to an end one day (doomsday.) It may happen in my lifetime, your life time, your kid's lifetime. Only God knows when it will come to an end. There's nothing to be worried about. If it happens in your lifetime, don't waste your time worrying about the future. Life is a present. Enjoy what you have now and not worry about what's going to happen in the future. You're not having fun when you're worrying!
