    In reality, I probably shouldn't even make an uninformed comment, but I wish you wouldn't be so hard on yourselves. I know that I would much rather be a non-Jew living in Israel without the right to vote than a Mulsim convert living in any Muslim country. I'll let you argue the issue among yourselves, but as an outsider, I think you have a great country, a great religion, and have a great tradition. I know that my values really come from your teachers of the distant past for which I am grateful.
