    that's not really correct. The question is why would you want to be identified as a Jew ? I believe that my original comment had merit to be posted but if one deduces that a Jew cannot be secular, than that's also wrong because the majority of Israelis are secular or consider themselves to be Jewish. But I'd say Haaretz staff and probably a lot of their readers are blaze about the Jewish religion or practice, because otherwise my original comment would have been posted. There's no denial here because I've been around since the beginning of Haaretz online and read most of the writers and know which angle they're from. Shana Tova and may peace be around the corner.
