The difference lies in the word "jewish" state. Here in Norway, we have a (voluntary) oath that all new citizens can perform, but it involves "allegiance to the flag" and does not demand that any religious or ethnic loyalty be added in. Imagine a oath that demands loalty to the "Aryan"/ "Christian" state of Norway. The oath is to the nation, not to the ethnic /cultural majority.
