    I think you are allergic to nationalist and religion and therefore your conclusions are jaundiced. Isaelis have strong Enlightened approach in their world view. What you haven't taken into consideraion is that Israel, unlike Europe, has been at a constant state for defending it's right to exist as a nation for its people. After WWII and especially after the fall of the Iron Curtain Europe has only been focused on creating a sturcture of peace internally without the additional energy used for external pressures. If two friend are on a journey to place A, and they get seperated from each other. You would imagine that they would celebrate each others progress, even if one had to destroy a bit of the scenery on the way. The focus is on the destination. We Israelis want a nationalistic Enlightened society. They are on some levels counter intuitive, but it is possible to accomplish. This has been the Jewish approach to existence since the begining. If the Europeans want a more extreme Enlightened approach, good for them. But let them focus on Israels common paradigm and not the small matters which make more noise.
