Calling Israel a Jewish state is about as racist as calling a Mosque racist. There's no default label that should be applied just because it's description doesn't encompass all people. Calling Israel a Jewish state reveals the purpose of the state given the history of many nations of the world, including Syria at a number of times that the author is likely ignorant of, and their treatment of Jewish people for one reason or another. The Boy Scouts, an organization for young males to learn certain values, is not a sexist group. The Hair Club For Men is not either. Black Entertainment Television (Or the B.E.T. channel) isn't racist simply because it targets a specific audience due solely on skin color and the culture associated with it. The Arab League, a group to promote Arab/Muslim issues, is not racist just because "Arab" is part of it's description and name. It's the treatment of other groups that would make all of these organizations earn their negative labels.
