    I’ll like to view your point about Israel blending into the Middle East. Blending into the Middle East means giving up own culture and religion and converting to Islam. Look what had happened to Lebanon, as the only Christian country in the area? Why is Bethlehem not a Christian city anymore? Like many other people in Holland, I’m used at this time of the year to visit Christmas fairs in churches. Last Thursday I’d been at the Dansk Julemarked of the Danish Church in Rotterdam. To imagine a group of Danish, Dutch, Germans and Israeli (me) sitting at the table, drinking coffee and having good time is in the Middle East something that’s belong to the citizens of March.
