Israel is not asking to be rcognized as a jewish state in name but actually a jewish state. you are so foolish you actually seem to believe that the palestinians want a state and will live in peace with Israel if Israel gives them what they want. this whole palestinian state thing is just a tool to be used by the arab league and muslims as stepping stone to thier goal of destroying Israel all together. and by the way netanyahu isn't giving abbas the job of describing the name of what Israel calls themselves he is requesting abbas to recognize that Israel is a jewish state!!!!!!
