I believe that you believe that "Modern Jewish identity is not racist", but the facts show otherwise. Life just doesn't work that way. If tribal membership was merely a cultural artifact that didn't influence one's relationship with the rest of humanity then you would be right, and it would be harmless, like preferring Chinese food over French food. But it's more than that - Jewish tribalism has concrete, very harmful results to both the practitioners and their many victims. How can anyone look at Israel today and not see that? This is true not only for Jews, of course, but for any tribal, religiously-based society. Almost all of Israel's neighbors suffer from their own, often worse variants of the same malady. Israel is simply fitting into its neighborhood, and that's a crying shame. It once had the potential to do better, to be a truly civilized country, but that dream appears to be thoroughly dead and buried.
