(a) an obession with sin? No doubt there are people who will insist that this applies to Judaism, but they aren't [mainly] Jews.
(b) an eschatology?? Any eschatology in Judaism is a cultural import, not native grown.
(c) irrational taboos?? Is there a human culture ever which cannot be accused of irrational taboos? Like the taboo against questioning gunophilia?
(d) fideistic refusal to consider evidence contrary to its doctrines Oh, yeah, Jews don't argue with anything.
