As someone who is not religious I strugle with this concept of being born religious. We are not born religious, religion is a choice. We are born American, or Australian .. that is not something we can choose.

I struggle with this concept of being born nationalised.

TNNH, "I visited during the Intifadeh once" meaning, I visited the Temple mount during the intifadeh once.

Enough said?

This sucks. (1) Anyone who says Jews have only one homeland is an idiot, does that mean that America is not the homeland to millions of Jews, ditto the country of nationality for the millions of Jews across the planet. I find American Jews to be very patriotic Americans, British Jews to be patriotic Brits. Israel and Palestine is equally symbolic to Jews, Christians and Muslims. (2) This birthright israel thing DOES look like bribery, as VH-ADG said - American teenagers being bribed with a free trip to Israel (with a stop at Aushwitz en route, it's like something out of a TV comedy sketch). (3) TWANeedsNoHelp needs help.
