    you seem to be talking about a country you don't know. it would take you only a few days, /maybe hours, while in israel to discover it's a western country, built on a 'western' value system. just by turning on your TV /by looking out your hotel room window you'd know. as you surely do know, this term is not a geographical one. btw, the whole western civilization, w/europe & the US at its center, has its roots in the ME as its value system(s) via judaism & christianity all began here. this is what made the western world as we know it to the extent nothing else did, & that including all the 'revolutions', political & otherwise, shaping it over the last few recent centuries. you'd expect the country founded by primarily people (ashkenazi jews) coming from europe who were inspired by the humanistic ideas & ideals most in vogue at the time, to be anything else? so what are you talking about? btw, thinking the existential threat is an empty slogan, well, you live in arizona..
