"America requests its citizens to swear allegiance to the state while placing their hand on the New Testament." Not true! Such would be unconstitutional. In the Past when people were required to swear upon the bible, which under constitutional scrutiny is no longer the case, it was the old and new testiment anyway. Not quite so anti-semitic as you portray. No Jew in America would ever be required to swear upon the new testiment; nor would a muslim, hindu or buddhist. You should not justify your arguments with such wild unsupportable claims.
