Israel is playing a mind game and Israel will lose. If Israel wants to be a theocracy it can be. If it wants to give preferential treatment to followers of Judaism and not be a democracy it can do that. It can actually do anything it likes once it has legitimate borders and the Palestinians have their own fully independent, contiguous State. All this talk of the Palestinians recognising the superiority of a religion is a mind-game Israel is using to prevent the creation of Palestinian State.Israel's tragedy is that it is only in a two state solution that it can have what it wants... a Jewish state.. a theocratic State of Israel. With the one state solution which is now inevitable there will be a secular state with a Palestinian majority and the chance of it being called Israel are zero.
