Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

It doesn't even matter. The Jewish, Islamic and Christian faith are all essentially the same. They teach the same things - and as long as you stick to the non-crazy aspects of it, they all come down to "don't be a dick".

People don't like to hear it, these three religions are like Ubuntu variants. Some superficial difference, but they're all one and the same to an outsider.

Actually, "don't be a dick" ranks pretty low on the list of rules/guidelines of those religions. eg, in most enumerations of the Ten Commandments, the first "don't be a dick" rule comes in at around 5. This is not even touching Leviticus or Sharia.

As long as you stick to the non-crazy aspects of them, you'd get nothing like any of the core of those religions. Or to put it another way, there is no non-crazy aspect to them, as they are defined by their craziness. Everything else is common humanitarianism.
