israel is the historic homeland of the jewish people. the purpose of the foundation of the state is to provide a refuge to the jewish people after two thousand years of exile and persecution. zionism is the assertion by the jewish people, headed by the founders, that jews have the right to national self-determination. every sovereign has the right to determine laws of citizenship. israel is both jewish in its ethos and democratic. as many have posted, the citizenship pledge of the united states, requires individuals to renounce all allegiances to foreign sovereigns and a pledge to defend the country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. it seems that you are not shocked that those who ask for american citizenship are required to pledge that they will fight "domestic" enemies. maybe you should think about that. research also shows that the united states has a citizenship test with 98 questions. furthermore, israel has always regarded herself as the nation state of the jews. just read the declaration of independence, the words to the hatikva, and think of the symbols of the state, including the flag and the menorah.
