    Shepen you are wrong on both counts. Firstly how does an aspect of the US constitution effect or explain away the new Israeli oath? Perhaps the only relevance is that after 60 years Israel still has no constitution. Wonder why.... Secondly, Israel was created as a state with a Jewish majority just as Palestine was drawn as a state with a non-Jewish majority. In both cases UN Res181 was explicit that both states had to respect and protect the rights of all groups whether religious, cultural, ethnic etc. The oath is contrary in every way to these agreed conditions.
