but Jewish and Judaism are not one and the same. Israel is a democracy not a theocracy. Move to Iran and get a taste of your own medicine that you wish for the gentile and its mother. Shame on Israelis for dragging this religious inferiority complex into the arena of human rights. Israel - should it succumb to the theocratic ramblings - will be no different than it's neighboring enemies who think they are chosen and everyone else plays second in"fidel". Most Jews I know in North America have nothing to do with the synagogue or rabbis or the torah. They celebrate the high holidays much like so called Christians celebrate Christmas and Easter. It's called tradition... some traditions lose their meaning over time just because that's the way life is. There are more important things to be worried about besides feeling chosen or saved. And many Israeli's I met while working in Israel have nothing good to say about the ultra-orthodox teet suckers. Whether one is goy, gay, girl, guy - follower of Christianity, Islam or Judaism or any higher-power... there is place for everyone in a truly democratic country. Maybe democracies days are numbered in Israel. I doubt it. Get over yourself.
