Demanding the Palestinians recognise Israel as a jewish state is very suspicious. Israel can declare that it is a jewish state as Iran declared that it is an Islamic state. Why does Netanyahu want the Palestinians to recognise it as such. As if you are telling the Palestinians living in Israel that they d0 not belong to the jewish state. This will end by Egypt, Jordan, Syria and the rest of the Middle East demanding recognition that they are Islamic states and eventually end up with religious wars for decades to come.
