BDS, you should know, if you have any sense or knowledge of history, that virtually all European nation states are based on ethnic, racial identity. A German State (or French or Italian or Croatian) means an ethnically based political identity. Therefore, Israel is only following precedent in desiring to be recognized in this way. Non-Jews can still live there and mainatin their identity. Now, Achmad, I understand your anger. But please don't forget that many Arab nations and leaders of the time were staunch allies of the Nazis, and as such, as responsible for war crimes committed in their nations as the Germans. We need to get our facts straight if we are to solve anything here. Please try a bit harder. Thanks.
