Recognition of Israel as the Jewish state must be absolutely non-negotiable. Those who do not understand this, do not understand the very essence of Zionism. Zionism was, and is, the national movement of Jewish self-determination. The birth of Israel, a state that is a Jewish democracy, was the culmination of this struggle for self-determination. All wars, 1948, 1967, 1973, Lebanon, and all battles against terror, have been fought in the name of the Jewish state. This history can never be rewritten or revised.
