I suspect I would not see you like a "lost sheep" The problem is that most religious sites are so fake and/or commercialized, or packed with lost sheep, they are best observed off season, even then there is a problem.
Several weeks ago I was an Capadocia visiting a historic monastery dating from the time when Romans were still persecuting christians. The scene was beautiful, white with snow and a lot of volcanic cones, that had been hollowed out to make cells, kitchens, dining rooms, chapels. One of my students wanted her picture taken with the monastery to her back. Unfortunately there was a bus load of tourists, who showed no respect for the fact that I was obviously posing the student to get the shot she wanted. Instead of going to the right or left of me and the student, they kept standing, walking, `posing right in the middle of my shot - judging by their conversations they had no clue as to the significance of the site, they just wanted an "I was there" photo to impress the folks back home. I ended up taking 4 shots, of which only one was not messed up by some intrusion. Examples
See how annoying that is?
You are called into the forum, expecting a response to what may , or may not, have been a thoroughly researched post.
Instead you get this stupid little macro.
Imbecil! Unicamente means solely or only and is NOT the equivalent of unique(ly).
you really need to concentrate on 1 language and try to get it right.

1 in 5 Europeans say secret Jewish cabal runs the world, survey finds Same number say Jews exploit the Holocaust, 1 in 4 say Israel's policies make them understand anti-Semitism, in survey of 16 countries in Europe
I'm just happy we're not as anti-semitic as those horrid US blacks.
This from the very reliable anti-racists of the ADL (Anti Defamation League) - http://www.adl.org/antisemitism_survey/survey_print.asp - dead link but this text appears (with approval?) in Google hits:
... Confirming the three previous studies, black Americans remain considerably more likely than white Americans to hold anti-Semitic views. In the 1998 survey, blacks (34%) are nearly four times as likely as whites (9%) to fall into the most anti-Semitic category.
The overall level of anti-Semitism among African-Americans (34%) compares to 37% in 1992. This very slight decline in acceptance of anti-Jewish stereotypes has been significantly slower among blacks than among whites, expanding the racial gap in attitudes toward Jews in 1998.
Impact of Education in the Black Community
The current survey reaffirms the strong correlation between education level and acceptance of anti-Jewish stereotypes among African-Americans.
Among those blacks without any college education, 43% fall into the most anti-Semitic group. This number drops to 27% among African-Americans with some college experience, and stands at 18% among blacks with a four-year college degree.
The overall level of anti-Semitism among all these groups is down from 1992. At the same time, it should be noted that black Americans at all education levels are significantly more likely than whites at the same level to accept anti-Jewish stereotypes. http://www.adl.org/antisemitism_survey/survey_print.asp
I cannot prove or disprove what the ADL is claiming - except that African-Americans are said to complain about racism a lot - almost exclusively in reference to white people.
Maybe the real crime of Blacks is not treating Jews any different from any other white people!
These polls appear which indicate that Anti Semitism is alive and kicking , evey pollster has their own spin on why Anti Semitism is thriving , but if it never goes away then it is seemingly carried forward Generation to Generation then it can be seen to carried forward father to son etc
I have previously used this video before but it makes a point https://www.youtube.com/embed/yAeWyGGTdEE?rel=0
Finally it wont go away , the Anti Jewish sentiment is now so deeply engrained in Western Culture it cant be erradicated , it is century upon century of refining , changing , mutating and being rehashed , its message never changes , its script does
I love those who ignorantly base their opinions on undocumented polls. I don´t dubt that many Europeans and westerners speak of this secret jewish cabal, but I doubt if you can document a poll that comes up with that number. Try me (note that your URL does not document the so far imaginary poll).
To me it is just another meme to manipulate the ignorant and already prejudiced.
