    Anglicanism is the state religion of Britain, Lutheranism is the state religion of Sweden, Catholicism is the state religion of Italy, Islam is the state religion of most Arab or Muslim countries. The free public schools in Italy, some other EU nations are Catholic parochial schools, Jewish kids must pay for private schools. Who says Israel cannot be a constitutional Jewish state, as it was intended to be. JNF collects funds from world Jews to settle Jews on the land it buys, just as the Waqf does for Moslems with funds from its donors. Totally unethical to divert JNF resources to Arabs, and a form of fraud. Donations will evaporate if this occurs. Mazuz is just way off base, the compact with the original donors has to be honored. Likewise, the Law of Return does not need to apply to non-Jews; its purpose was to assure the one assured national refuge for Jews, not Tibetans or Darfurians (great as their need may be). No other country opens its doors to any Jew in need (USA included)
