Israel is made up of 20% Muslims and a small minority of Christians so how can the country be recognized politically as a "Jewish State"? It is the 21st century not the 17th, and theocracies are on the downhill slide. Why would Israel want to be a Theocratic nation rather than a pluralistic, democratic nation? If Israel becomes a "Jewish" state it cannot also be a democracy and protect the rights of its minorities effectively--it isn't protecting the minority rights of its Arab citizens even now. Why would Israel want to join the likes of Iran as being one of the few existing theocracies in the modern world?
