    A Jewish state doesn't have to be like extremist want, Israel can be a Jewish state and still be against extremists who want to separate the genders. I think it's good that you write about this because some people who are against Israel drag up the bad things and think that Israel is bad because of that. I'm happy that people demonstrate and are against the gender separation. I don't think that the gender separation is in the Jewish scriptures. I'm not sure because I haven't studied Judaism much, but I don't think that there is any verse in the Bible, Talmud, Midrash or any other Jewish scripture that says that women should not be on the same side of streets as men. About the extremist settlers, their version of Judaism is one version. They could be equally Religious, and still support a two-state solution, and base that opinion on Judaism. They don't want to have another interpretation, but they could have. Their opinions are political. Yes, I have also seen that some non-Jews support the extremist settlers and are against a two-state solution. Why is it like that? I think that most people who support the settlers are non-Israelis and non-Jews.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
