Jews as Citizens 2

Question: If you had to choose between the Church giving up anti-semitism (assuming this is pre-Vatican II) or giving up the trinity, which would you choose?
If you answered the former, why look out for you own self-interest and give up the chance to increase monotheism in the world (or at least to decrease idolatry)? Because as Jews are we more interested in our own safety than creating a moral or monotheistic society?
I think that this question is important for discussing our roles as Jews & citizens. Would you prefer a more Guiliani-esque police state, where occasionally citizens rights are trampled? Or more freedoms, but less safety?
