Born a Jew?

Reader comment on item: Identifying Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: the evil christian wars

This may just be me but I believe the author is confused. Judaism is a religion. Most people don't understand that. You are not born a Jew, you accept or don't accept it as your faith. Some one from Israel is Israeli, someone form Germany is German though they both can be Jewish. One can choose to change religious views. no one has to stay Jewish, or one can choose to convert to Judaism. no one is born Jewish as much as someone is born Christian.
