'Great' Minds Thinking Alike

Australian Catholicism's Godfather, Cardinal George Pell:

"We should know more about Asia, but we do not belong to Asia. We are not of that world. We are an outpost of Western civilisation. It is one thing to oppose England in the cricket, but it is foolish not to acknowledge the British origins of our institutions - except the Catholic Church. Parliament, the law, schools, hospitals and military all follow British models. And Europe, like the Americas and Australia, cannot be understood without the Judeo-Christian tradition. For these reasons... I commend the national school curriculum review. A curriculum which does not mention James Cook and has no secondary references to the First Fleet or the Anzacs is badly skewed. Christianity is mentioned only 11 times, once more than Islam." (Today's a day for us to rejoice in history's page - our page, Sunday Telegraph, 26/1/14)

Zionism's Godfather, Theodor Herzl:

"We should [in Palestine] form a portion of a rampart of Europe against Asia, an outpost of civilization as opposed to barbarism." (The Jewish State, 1896, Dover edition, p 96)

How many times is Judaism mentioned? Is Australia no more part of "British Israel World Federation"?!
