No and I didn't say it was. It's a country.
LB said it smacked of racism.
The Jewish faith has withstood every effort to destroy it for last two thousand years. I can't think of any major religious group who have been tested in this way. This is why I admire the religion and those who have followed it.
I agree about George. Shame really, I enjoy watching him at work as he tears lumps out of people.
Indeed, it's a fair point that to be Israeli is to be a citizen of a country, rather than a race. There is even an argument that to be Jewish is to be a member of a religion, rather than a race.
Still, we know what George really means. The word 'Israeli', used in that sort of context, has become a term used by anti-semites who feel the need for some plausable deniability.
