Israel=Judaism, Judaism=Israel ?

"I believe Jimmy Carter is an anti-Semite and his intention is to hurt Jewish people."
-Shmuel Herzfeld, rabbi at Ohev Sholom in Washington, D.C., conflating a beautiful religion that is thousands of years old with a modern nation-state that is less than a century old.
The modern Zionist project of blurring the definition of what it means to be "really Jewish" has worked. By their definition a "real Jew" logically has to support the "Jewish state." This "Jewish state" also does not descriminate based on religion or cultural/ethnic identities, they say.
