I saw this great article in the Economist that explains some of the identity problems that us, Jews, face in the modern world.
I really liked it because I always get tired of explaining how can I be both Jewish (ethnic/cultural identity) and atheist (attitude towards the religion itself). People just seem not to get the fact that we are different in this aspect from Christians and Muslims. I am always surprised how reluctant they are to accept my explanation that the above 2 things are mutually exclusive.
I am glad the Economist decided to take this on. Also pretty impressed with how well it explains the internal conflict in Israel and the need to separate “church” and state. How ridiculous is it that some Israelis need to fly to Cyprus in order to get married?!
