in response to reader comment: If wikipedia says it then it must be true

Amin, you forget that Jewish is a race in addition to a religion.

Yes - but then there are black Jews too. It is a combination of tradition, race, religion and language that brings them together.

English is a nationality and as my fellow countrymen claim a sub-race. Not a religion.

Also I do not have a problem with Israel NOT being a secular democracy. In fact I think its a good thing.
