With a 25% non-Jewish population - it would be more correct to categorize Israel as a multi-religious country with a majority. 3- Nobody recognizes Israel as a “Jewish state”. Nobody recognizes Golan annexation. No Embassies are in Jerusalem. There is no reason for Israel to coerce the Palestinians into making concessions that no other nation on earth has made. No other nation on earth expects Abbas to make this concession. Netanyahu’s demands will simply cause Israel to sink further in the eyes of the world. Israel can't afford to have the same old politicos playing the same old games as they did in the last century. Times have changed and the world has lost patience with Israel.
