Mark, I must add a word of caution on this one too. You are correct when you say that Judaism is the smaller religion. But I must beg your pardon, how did you decide that it is also weaker? A religion who's followers were systematically and cruelly victimized over centuries by literally the whole world (and only because of their faith), and in spite of having no home, and all the inhuman hardships, pogroms and attempts to genocide, they clung to their faith, can be called ANYTHING, BUT NOT WEAK.
