    community than theology. I've repeatedly argued that Israel is a nation-state which arose for national/political and religious purposes, in ancient times and its existence today. This does not mean that the other current inhabitants who are non-Jewish, do not have the same equal rights within the nation-state. Israel symbolizes for us that we are a nation of distinct people with a history, some of which is reflected in the Bible. In my opinion, people who are at peace or at ease in accepting of each other, see the commonalities between their religions more than the differences. Jews, Muslims and Christians who adhere to this notion, accept one another. You know, one of my favourite prayers growing up which our Rabbi, a son of a prominent Canadian Rabbi, captured the essence of Judaism when he led in prayer while covering his hand over his eyes: " Grant us peace, Thy most precious gift O Thou eternal peace, and enable Israel to be a messenger of peace unto the peoples of the earth".
