    "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.

Not a migrant, not an immigrant – there has to be a third option, but he doesn't know how to say it in English, Arabic or Hebrew.

One of Black Seed Bagels’ specialities.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine

A visit to the world's bagel capital is a chance to marvel at how this unassuming Jewish-Ashkenazi food has come from its 17th-century beginnings.
