||A bit unusual might be putting it lightly. I have lived in Belgium. My background is that I am British and American with an ethnic heritage of English, Scottish, German, French, and Russian. I speak English, French, German, Dutch and a smattering of a load of other languages. I am probably more a Belgian-German in temperament, defintely more Euro than Yank, but you know how stupid internet quizzes are (there are a couple of internet quiz links to this in my myspace profile). I am beginning to realise that Zionist (This means people who support a Jewish "homeland" and they can be either Jewish or Christian) are responsible for a serious mess in the Holy Land.
I am a strong believer in protecting the rights of the underdog.

||Hope/ Tikvah – We create a better future because we believe that progress is always possible and within our capacity to realize.
Courage/ Ometz – We take the necessary risks in pursuit of our purpose because our cause is righteous and just.
Humility/ Anavah – We behave with integrity as a reliable partner, ally, colleague, and friend because we cannot achieve our vision by acting alone.
Dignity/ Tzelem Elohim – We protect the rights of individuals to live in freedom and have access to opportunity because every person is a unique and infinitely valuable being.
Abundance/ Shefa - We act as stewards of our resources because we are obligated by the knowledge that our prosperity is not by our hands alone.
Community/ Kehilah – We build relationships where people help each other because individuals have a profound responsibility for the well being of the whole.
