Demanding that Israel stops construction on very territories that are under negotiation is not a demand, it is a reality. Recognizing Israel as a Jewish state means no rights to non-Jews potentially - nobody can agree to that. I do not think USA ever recognized Israel as Jewish state. State for Jews - yes. But not Jewish state. How is it different from Germany for Germans?
