Unfotunately in Europe which spawned the idea of the nation state, the nation state is dead, with a larger conglomerate called the EU taking its place. Alsothe global village with its call of intermingling with the 'other' is making etnic states look racist. I was told of a rabbi who preached on a colege campus in North America,against intermarriage and the reaction of the students was "Rabbi! we didn't know that you were so racist." That is why all the 'talkbacks' are so against us. We represent a bygone world. Nevertheless, we have a Divine mission to be a 'Goy Kadosh' in Eretz Israel and that mission we must fulfil in spie ogf all the 'trendiness'.
