Is Israel a national Jewish state or a religious Jewish State? Or is Judaism just a favored religion in Israel like Christianity was a favored religion in ancient Rome under Constantine? If Israel is a national Jewish state are Arabs---Muslim and Christian citizens of Israel ---Jewish nationals? Do they have the same rights and obligations as those who are recognized as Jews under Jewish law? If Israel is a Jewish religious state what could be the legal status of Israeli Christians and Muslims? The Arab population in Israel, East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza is estimated to be around 5.8 million. Since, the Arab birth rate is higher than the Jewish birth rate the expectation is that soon there will be more Arabs in Eretz Israel than Jews. So, reality dictates some kind of resolution of the present conflict. Every Israeli politician who isn't floating in fantasy land has to deal with the demographic facts + the status of political and human rights of Arabs.
