Israel is pretty much recognized by all but a few Arab countries. Even the PA recognises Israel as a state with a righ5t to exist. BUT a Jewish state? Who cares what your religion is. But wait a minute doesn't Israel have christains? Druze? Muslims? Are they to be dis-infrancised because they are not Jewish? How about recognition of a state called Israel with a Jewish majority? The bigger question is why does Israel require Arab recognition for legitamacy? Why in the world do you care what they think?
