"Another difference would be that India is not an explicitly Hindu state." Israel has freedom of religion, with multiple religions practiced by its 20% non-Jewish minority. The HQ of the B'Hai religion, persecuted throughout the Muslim world, is in Haifa. Israel is a Jewish nation the way the US is a Christian nation. "Make India a nation that is explicitly for Hindus", you mean as Saudi Arabia is specifically a Muslim nation? Or perhaps you mean just making it illegal for a single religion to be citizens, as Jordan explicitly excludes Jews from citizenship. No, wait, you mean how the PA demands a land ethnically cleansed of Jews and of how the Pal Muslims are also cleansing Christians from the land they want. Colin, you do realize your inability to join us in the world of facts shows: 1) Your ingrained antisemitism 2) Again, the problems with the fumes from the Richmond refineries. Take a break.
