In the May 28, 1993 edition of Yedioth Ahronoth, Ariel Sharon explained: "The terms ‘democracy’ or ‘democratic’ are totally absent from the Declaration of Independence. This is not an accident. The intention of Zionism was not to bring democracy, needless to say.

This is why any Jew of the Diaspora has the right to immigrate to Israel and to become a citizen of Israel."
