I think because at the end of the day, it is much an ethnic identity as a religious one.  In Russia and other eastern European countries, Jews are recognized as a specific ethnic group (or groups)..

BTW here is Isaac Deutscher on the "non-Jewish Jew."

Louis,
���������� Oh My Marx! I wonder why people continue with this obsession with their religious identity, and especially with Judaism. Here in India, the communists had broken away with Hinduism, Islam or Christianity. I am not sure about Indian Communists of Jewish origin, because the number of Jews in India are insignificantly few. Even among communists from Parsi community, who are a very small group, they have completely discarded their religious identity.
But why this obsession with being a Jew even among the Communists from Jewish Community?
I think they have to grow up!
