Ge­of­frey Al­der­man wants a Jewish state — but not a theoc­racy ( JC, April 25). I have ev­ery sym­pa­thy. Only trou­ble is, where do you draw the line? Af­ter all, Bri­tain was once a Chris­tian state. No longer, though, it would seem. So is Yom Kip­pur in Is­rael — a time when “non-kosher restau­rants are closed, and that even the non-re­li­gious re­frain from driv­ing their cars” — proof enough that the Jewish state is un­der no threat? It prob­a­bly is, at least for now. Then again, a Mar­tian visit­ing the UK on Christ­mas Day would prob­a­bly be amazed by this Chris­tian land... Si­mon Plat­man si­mon­plat­man@hot­
