Ok David, if as in America we have people of other nations bring their own customs in and we have to accept that and allow them the opportunity to cling to their customs than why is it that the Jewish state is allowed to maintain a monopoly on Jewish only policy. Israel is supposed to be a democracy and as in any democracy the state must allow for the rights of the minority to be heard and respected. This includes Israel. Israel must allow for this just as we (USA) have because if it doesn?t than Israel either a closed society without non-Jews or it is really an apartheid State. And as you state GB, France, Italy, Japan and China do take into account the rights of minority?s and the countries like China who don?t do a good job of this are routinely criticized. Acceptance is all these people want if you read the article.
