J: "But, if the Palis want a state, they will have to recognize Israels` Jewishness." And right about now would be a very good time for you to define what you mean by "Israel's Jewishness". Is is a "vibe", Judith? Is is a fuzzy-wuzzy warmish sort of feeling in your tummy-wummy? Is it a secular state that has a majority demographic that happens to be Jewish? Or is it more than that; is it a guaranteed right of the ruling regime to declare that "our people" get to define the fundamental nature of this state, whereas "those people" have no say, even tho "all these people" are citizens of that state? What, exactly, are you talking about? Because it seems to me that when you - and people like you - start tossing around phrases like "Israel's Jewishness" you do with with breathtakingly casualness and an astonishing lack of critical examination.
