I am a Muslim and am trying to understand the basis of these orthodox groups along with the different sides of the Israel Palestine issue. As a Muslim, I have the highest respect for both Judaism and Christianity based upon the words of the Qur'an and the example of our Prophet (may peace be upon him) But one of the comments, was stated that Israel was created for both religious and secular jews. I dont understand how one can call themselves a secular jew, and i have met more and more jewish colleagues who say they are culturally jewish, or secular. this is open for others to expand, thanks guys
