C'mon, c'mon, the UN and every nation that recognizes Israeli independence and has diplomatic relations with it automatically recognizes Israel as The State of the Jewish People. Here's why -- - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    That is because the formal, official name of Israel in Hebrew is Medinat Yisroel, which translates into "State of the Jewish People", Medinat being the Hebrew word for "state" and "Israel" being a 3000 year old collective noun for the Jewish People in Hebrew. Why do you think it was selected as the name for the state??? Israel is described as "Jewish State" in 8 places in its Declaration on Independence in 1948, and is the "Jewish State" the 1947 UN Partition Plan describes. So any entity that says it will recognize Israel but won't won't recognize a "State of the Jewish People", as Abbas has done, is saying it won't actually recognize Israel (wink, wink). It is nonsensical to say you recognize the independence of a state but that you, not they, get to decide what kind of state it is. That is why Abbas is a fraud, he is playing sleazy word games on the whole world. The PLO does not recognize Israel, look at their emblem on their website.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
