    Tell me, Proud Zionist, do these laws in Denmark or Holland prevent Danes and Dutch from marrying spouses from other EU countries? Would Denmark or Holland allow someone into the country who spoke Dutch or Danish? France also has laws which make not only citizenship but permanent residency difficult. The person should, under most circumstances be fluent in French, have resided for some time in the country and be acquainted with French history and culture, but in none of the above cases, if these requirements are met, are foreign nationals barred on the basis of religion. Religion, proud zionist, religion. Not ability to speak the language or acquaintance with the history and culture but religion as the sole defining factor. The fact that the situation may be worse in Arab countries is pointless and has nothing to do with Israel's policies. Israel's claim is that it is both Jewish and democratic and that seems to me to be an oxymoron. I find it indefensible. Now, you can argue and say: well, I really don't give a damn, as a number of posters have admitted. A Jewish state is more important than a democratic one. Well, then admit as much, but don't keep on with this claim to be democratic.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
