As I am "familialist", I am nationalist. I value my family and I value my nation. It is not contradictory in my mind to defend universal values, especially the jewish ones. I don't understand all these people, jewish or not, who ask from me to reject my love and my loyalty to my people, the jewish people, to regard me as a modern human being. As a scientist I cannot be more in the modernity, but I claim my jewishness for what it is, simply to be a Jew, a member of the jewish people, without preconditions.
