    Yes, we do culturaly fit most to the Western world. Basically, however, we resemble most to Japan, Korea, and even China. The rason is: There is only one Japan, one Korea (temporarily split to two), one China (Taiwan issue yet to be resolved). Similarely, there is one Jewish state - Israel. We have to compare at the immigration laws in those countries. How easy is it to become Japanese, or Korean, or Chinese in case you where not born one? - Very hard. Very hard even if you mary a national of those countries. Never if you are born there while not having both parents originally nationals of those countries. In Japan, if your mother is Japanese and the father is, say, EU national, and the child decided to hold EU passport before he turns 21, he will not be able to get a Japanese passport even if his mother is Japanese and he was born in Japan !! Japan also have a law, like Israel, that grants automatic Japanese passport to one that wants it and can prove he is of Japanese origin (see former Peru President Alberto Fujimori case). In China, Korea, and Japan, you as a foreigner happen to be born there, you are not entitled to receive the local Passport. Israel is much more like tose countries, and should compre itself to them on immigration issues.
