    in Israel and thus the state of Israel is the one who prevents by force of its laws marriages between Jews and non-Jews, thus it is state coercion to preserve the 'purity of the Jewish People', “holly task” being exercised through state sponsored monopolistic Chief Rabbinate. Therefore, you are right; it is a state of Israel who is racist and not state sponsored monopolistic Orthodox Judaism Chief Rabbinate which is just a well paid tool from collected taxes on citizens in eagerly performing its racist policy as any religion would do in any state if allowed. Yes, Catholic rules require and Catholic priests encourage Catholics to marry Catholics in many different countries, fine, but they cannot FORCE citizens to marry at their offices not to mention PREVENT people to marry at all in their own country like in racially prejudiced Israel. But Israel is not alone in it; Egypt, Jordan, Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya, Mauritania, as well as Iran coerce people and suffocate human rights through official religion, welcome to the club Mr. Landau.
