The opening of the Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, states as follows: ?We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." How can the word "equal" be subject to so much interpretation in Israel? Even God said that he created man in HIS image, so doesn't that make us all equal? How can religious people not understand such a simple word? Those who have a problem with equality give credence to one North European leader who tried to convince his people that they are a super race and not equal to other people!
