    You said.."Go tell an orthodox rabbi that you as a secular person know what Judaism is and have lessons in it for others.He will laugh in your face and ask why don't you believe in G-d and do Mitzvot?" I do have Rabbis as friends and do attend shiyurim. In fact I correspond with the Lubavitch Rabbi in Beijing on a regular basis and have constant discussions with Local rabbis. I never said that I don't believe in G-D or that I do not do Mitzvot.Although they know I I drive on Shabbat I have not been excommunicated nor have I been laughed at yet. My house is Kosher. You also said "If you are such a mighty Jew!What would you tell him Reb Gabe?" Thank you for the compliment. I don't have to tell anybody anything. I know that I am a righteous person and live by the 10 commandments. I support my people and do not work to undermine them. I don't judge Jews by their way of life I judge them on how strongly they support Israel and its people. I believe that Rodef is a Jewish concept.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
