    have to do with this?

    I find that personally offensive.

    A few things you might consider:

    1. Israel is predominantly secular
    2. The founding of Israel (and the entire Zionist movement--was secular, not religious.  Many of the most religious Jews were completely opposed to the political entity of 'Israel'.
    3. Most Jews in this country (and around the world) don't support Netanyahu.  The Israel cause is low on the list for Jewish voters here.

    4. The Wall of Warsaw was a tool to funnel people into gas chambers and eliminate them from the planet.  The Wall of Gaza as you call it, while awful, is the product of exceedingly bad political policies in the grossly-overstated name of 'security'.  

    Your analogies are nonsense.  I respect your decision to choose your own religion--that's fine--but don't blame it on Judaism.
