    Yes, so true but a super power can’t rest on it’s laurels. It also has to be an example for the rest of the world on how it handles peoples in lands it conquered or people it has defeated. When all looks dire there is the audacity of hope for a better world.

    But what does being a “Jewish state” mean to the citizens who are not Jewish? Now I know Israel is far from a theocracy that plenty on the left want many to believe, but the character of Judaism, or Hebrew culture, does prevent a fifth of its population from many rights. So I guess it may be secular to the majority but perhaps be seen as not to others who do not share such beliefs.
