Hold on everyone. Take it easy.......After 2000 years at the mercy of others, it is only to be expected that the Jewish people would have a warped and out of date nationalistic perspective. Unfortunately 9or perhaps very fortuantely), the remainder of the Western world has moved far beyond this, and if Israel and the Jewish people really want to make themselves a part of that world, they will have to figure out how to evolve quickly politically, emotionally, and psychologically. Regrettably, the present leaders of Israel and world Jewry are manifestly not up to this task.
