    Come on mate. You can do it. You live in multi-cultural Australia. I live in multi-cultural Britain. Neither are perfect countries, but broadly speaking today both contain people from all over the world who get along OK and have an equal share in the society they live in. Australia isn't just a land for the immigrant Brits and Irish who founded it. Britain isn't just a country for the Anglo-Saxons who created England, the UK's biggest and richest part. Wouldn't you like to see Israel become something like that? Not The Jewish State, constantly having to discriminate against non-Jews, always agonising about that demographic time-bomb and becoming more religious and more extremist, but an Israel that is a society for all Israelis to share equally no matter whether they're Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Bedouin, no matter what gender, what colour and what sexuality? Wouldn't you like that? Now I know creating that from the present mess isn't easy, but at least say you want it.
