Jews have been identified by both their religion and nationality because of their historic exile. Now that we are a nation with a country, the ethnic identifiers that work for every other group to identify them work for us too. Herzl, the "founding father" of Zionism, was not religious per se, and Zionism is not a "religious" concept. In these times of increasing religiosity, we forget the historical context in which Zionism arose. As a non-religious Jew, with all due respect to Alicia, #14, I have a right to a territorial nation just as do the Japanese, the British etc.
