    Oppressing being used here without the usual grave notion hanging on it from hatred, violence and restrictions prohibiting normal life, but far more subtle. The Thora does not limit it's commands of how to live as a true Jew solely to personal life after all. Is there something in Israel a Gentile must foresake on with pain in the heart,, because it is not allowed and desired behaviour by Jews in the democratic state of the Jews (As a Christian with Indonesian blood, I obviously and unwantingly (in innocense) do love my occasional 'babi pangang' dish of young piggy meat fried in black ketjap sauce and could I eat that in Israel, at home of in restaurant (small thing but nor for a gourmet). . Is there some form of religious, economic, cultural, public and civilian activity, like work and travel and public expression by the arts, where Gentiles do not have equal rights in compared to Jews? I wonder, for that would be the proof in the pudding I reckon. Regards.
