Wake up folks. We are very different than other countries. Being jewish means that we are different. We are a monirity in a sea of humanity that has for the most part wanted us to disappear off the face of the earth. This has not changed and unfortunately will not change. At the end of the day we are alone to protect ourselves. One way to do that is to ensure there is a jewish state and a state for jews. Minority rights can be respected but at the end of the day we need to preserve the jewishness of the land. Democracy is not perfect in Israel or any other country. Democracy is the best of the worst forms of government. Strive to change it if you feel it needs changes. However, remember that Jews are unique among the nations and need to be protected form all those that want to destroy us. Thus the importance of the existance of a jewish state.
