I am confused regarding Isreal's intent regarding it's desire to resemble a Democracy while limiting it's voters to the Jewish religion. How can Israel claim to be a Democracy when it wants to be All-Jewish? Democracy's are open societies. If the majority becomes tyrannical, as De Tocqueville warned, the experiment fails. All-Jewish is, simply, racist. Israel does not have a Constitution for a reason. The Old Testament is supposed to be the Constitution. Please help me understand why I think that Israel is a racist state for wanting to be "all-jewish." And please don't think it's anti-semitic. Perhaps I should ask this.... If the United States decided that it was going to become an All-Christian State, or all-white, or all Muslim, would we still be a Democracy? How do you reconcile the desire to be a racist state with the ideals of Democracy?
