Amin, you forget that Jewish is a race in addition to a religion. England was traditionally a home for the English. To be truly secular, you'd have to remove the "English homeland" bit?

So Christians were in Israel before any Jews were? Interesting. The Catholic Church was founded by Jesus, whom the Roman rulers tauntingly called the king of the Jews. Those dumb Romans somehow had no idea of all those Christians and Druse there in that population of Jews they had conquered in that place that Romans decided to call Palestine. Too bad they didn't have wikipedia then.

Thanks for reminding me that Christmas is a holiday in the UK. Of course, I had forgotten that. I learn so much from you, Amin.
