First, am I Jewish? My parents came to the US in the early 1900's from a village called Shklov on the Dnieper, across from Mogilev, where they had experienced numerous pograms. I was raised in a non-observant humanist environment, and carry those values (Jewish values) to this day. Now to your claim that being spread out around the world, Jews have been particularly vulnerable to pograms both on a small and epic scale, and that this threat would be reduced by concentrating all Jews in Israel. I look at it differently - that dispersion over the millenia has had the effect of maintaining our ethnic/religious/racial identity. Your approach, I firmly believe, could well have disasterous effects, particularly when the prospects of nuclear weapons falling into the wrong hands seem so likely.
