    Lev, i identify, and agree in parts. But for me your conception of being Jewish is too narrow. The Jews were a tribe from Jacob's time, a people from the time of our slavery in Egypt, and a nation when we received the 10 commandments at Mt. Sinai. Yes, Judaism is the religion of the Jews, the Hebrews, but it was the yearning for our land to which we wished to return which was then infused into the religion during the first years of exile. Calling it Zionism was in itself a call for return to Zion - Jerusalem - and harking back to the extreminst who suggested Uganda is like proposing an autonomous Yiddish-speaking state in Russia, as the Bundt suggested. Religious Zionists want Judaism to be the Israeli ID card. i, as a self-identifiying liberal, left-wing zionist from an Orthodoz Jewish family believe that cultural preservation of our people and their history is why we are in Israel, and is why we have the 'right to return'. But in my view this should not preclude the civil or human rights of others - inside or outside the state.
