    Israel is not a binational state it is a Jewish one but with an arab minority you need proof of that look at the national symbols, do any of them have any meaning to arabs? The national anthem a return to zion. Virtually every single street sign in the country is named after a prominent Jew of some kind. The working week, national holidays all based on the Jewish calendar. The Law of return - it allows Jews from anywhere in the world to emigrate where they will be given thousands of dollars worth of various benefits and tax breaks. Non Jews do not qualify for any of this. There is nothing at all about Israel that says binational state. If we were going to become officially a binational state the very first thing that would have to go is alliyah, you cannot have a binational state which allows for one group to have the right to move here but the other doesn't. As long as israel is a Jewish state we can have laws like that but in a binational it would be discriminatory so the Jewish population would no longer be getting influxes from the diaspora to help boost the majority so the conclusions in this article are flawed..
