...but this article probably would not have been published or ever written if it didn't have this passage in it. I think the whole point of this bullshit article was to show that the Israelis have support from a "Christian" minority in the Middle East.

'But Balan is determined to return home.

"I feel like a Jew in Germany," he told me. "In recent years, many Germans no longer feel shameful over what happened during the war.

"Many openly voice their anti-Semitism, and they also hate us - other foreigners. I can make all the money in the world, but I will always be looked down at as an outsider, as someone who does not belong there."

Balan wants to wait until after the Iraqi crisis is resolved - by war or otherwise - before moving back home.

"I know I will miss the comfort of Germany - but I will be home."

Before we parted, Balan gave us a word of advice.

"Don't give in to the Palestinians," he said. "The Land of Israel should not be redivided. I am a devout Christian - and the Bible says that the country should not be divided."
