The idea that you would call a country after it's biggest ethnic and/or religious group, just seems like something out of the 19th century. It would be like calling Spain the Castilian state, or Britain the English State, or America, the Christian state. States inevitably divide the world, but within individual states, the whole emphasis of western states today is on promoting unity and equality among citizens, no matter what their ethnic and religious background. AIPAC-dominated US politicians may pay lip service to the idea of Israel as The Jewish State, but most of their citizens if they ever sit down and think about it, and understand the issues, aren't going to like it.
