Certainly an interesting view on Israel/Israel!

The Iraeli right have had power for some time now, and it shows. The, rightly, complain about their treatment under Hitler but seem to have thrown all their mirrors away. The Holocaust gives them no rights over others IMHO, rather they should seek to use their experience to ensure neither racial nor religious bigotry triumph.

In essence what is the difference between seeking to establish one racial type in a country compared to making it fit only for one religion when the most recent population was a mixture? I am sure that both decided god was on their side!

This "purification" is, unfortunately, spreading on an accelerating global front.
