    identity, culture. Read Haim Gerber, Kimmerling, etc.state argument is weak,since it is not a factor.there can be a state in which ppl don't share the idenity it promotes,etc.you do know that "ancient isr"wasnt a state a we know it now?archeologists argue after years of research that it wasnt as vast and strong as it was argued before.It is even better if a group of ppl dont need a state to secure their identity,because it shows their identity is stronger then that.Jew had to had special institutions to tell them what language to use,what hist.they have,etc.It was all state controlled,that is why sephardi were marginalized, since the state wasnt of their creation!
