in response to reader comment: Disrespectful and ill conceived comments

Sara, you do not have to join a church to be supportive of Israel when there are so many other rational reasons to do so. If you want to win over secular minded liberal Jews then you have to make secular arguments and not come from a religious point of view. I find religion to be childish at best and outright dangerous and intolerant at worst. Of course some religions are more dangerous and violent than others. I am not being disrespectful, just saying things as I see it. The vast majority of scientists from Einstein to Hawking do not see anything special about religion. As Einstein remarked: "The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still purely primitive, legends which are nevertheless pretty childish."
