Dear Prashant

"I meant that it might be a idea worth considering to create one (or many) countries in the ME where all people are forcefully converted to Jewish religion"

I would love you to define what is a Jewish religion.

If being Jewish means accepting Abraham and Moses as prophets of God well then already the people in Palestine are Jewish as Islam accepts those Jewish prophets as Muslims.

So how can you make these people as Jewish who are already Jewish ?

However what about converting people like Naftali Bennet and Avigdor Lieberman to Jewish religion as these two people hardly believe in any semitic religion, support gambling, interest, alcohol and homosexuality in Jerusalem (all of which have been forbidden in both Torah and Quran)

By your definition of Jewish religion Imam Khamenei and Nasrallah are already more Jewish than most ministers of Israel.

What is your view on that ?
