Reader feedback: Do not forget about the Jewish heritage

Re: European Parliament approves EU constitution, Volume 11, Number 2, January 17 - January 23, 2005

European society also has a Jewish heritage. Regardless of whether you are Hindu, Christian or atheist, you are experiencing the contributions of Jewish culture in your daily life in Europe, because the collective heritage of Europe includes Jewish culture.

Do you think it is fair to mention one religion over another [in the EU constitution]? What about the thousand-year history and cultural contribution of the gods of Olympus toward modern Europe? And the Norse gods' influence on modern Europe? They are also part of our undeniable past.

It isn't necessary - only provocative - to mention religion.
