    I wrote, "every nation in the world, including Arabs, knows Israel is a Jewish state." You ask, "then why did Palestinian Arabs start a war against Israel in 1948?" First, Palestinians didnt start the war. It was Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq. They did so because they "recognized that Israel was a Jewish state." No, No. The UN, all members of the international community, will recognize Israel only by its official name: the State of Israel. No nation can, nor will, recognize Israel for what it stands for: whatever that means. Palestinians and Arab nations long ago gave up the idea of destroying Israel. You suffer the Israeli curse: national paranoia. In 2002 and 2007, the Arab League, 22 nations including Palestine, proffered a comprehensive peace plan to the State of Israel in which the League offered full diplomatic recognition by all members, in return for Israeli withdrawal from the occupied territories. The US and the EU endorsed the offer. Israel didn't respond. Get it now?
