    I should have been more careful about what I wrote in my original response, however, the basic tenet of what I said still stands. I should have used the word if in front of "it was something that was done". As for me comparing the Ghetto Mentality, it isn't a slight against Israel, it is an observation taken from responses in Haaretz's talkbacks and what I see on the media and internet. I am sure you will agree Russian Jews did not have the best of times in Russia when it came to practicing their religion. Having being at school with Israeli kids in the seventies and early eighties, I have had discussions with them and their families about Israel. There has been a change in Israeli thinking, and I think it is fair to say the influx from Russia to Israel could have had that affect.
