The Israel haters whine about "theocracy" whenever Israel as a Jewish state is discussed. Iran is a theocracy; Israel is a parlimentary democracy. Over 80% of Israeli Jews are not religious or only nominally religious. What binds Israeli Jews is not "religion," but a sense of nationhood. One definition of nation is "a people with a common history and often a common language."
