If you were an assimilated Jew than you would not identify as Jewish at all - so, by definition, you are an acculturated Jew and not an assimilated one. And the problem with assimilation - and complete acculturation when we're at it - is that both are symptoms of conformist tendencies borne out of a fear of being different. Difference is beautiful, and people shouldn't be afraid to be Jews in America or anywhere else.

Any state - Jewish or not - must deal with the realpolitik of the state-system and the security environment of the region in which it is located.
