    Don't you think that it is enough to call Israel Israel to acknowledge the Jewishness of the state? Why don't you call yourself the Reunited Jewish State of Israel, ala the Muslim Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (official name). I can't think of any country that requires formal acknowledgement of its main religion, yes main since there are two other not so minor ones. The issue is that you want the whole world to negotiate on your behalf, you want them to say that you are Jewish country so you can use it to dispossess the 20% who are not Jews. The whole world recognizes Israelis and Israel's right to exist, now you want the whole world to participate in your efforts to diminish the rights of your minorities. Get over it, you're here, here to stay. If that ever changes it will be because the whole world goes against you, which is what your current government seems to be actually and actively pursuing. your undoing will be at your own hands. Israel is acting not so much as a spoiled child but a silly adult behaving like a spoiled child - not so cute anymore, grow the hell up.
