The Jewish identity of the state is exceptionally problematic and this is definitely not the time to bring it up! Especially, if Israel´s insistence on this identity might actually lead to the failure of the peace process and forcing the Palestinians to change their fight from a two state to one state solution--in which case Israel´s will cease to be a majority Jewish state in reality and not simply on the ground. The Palestinians move to the UN has signaled a change un our approach to negotiation, and Israel needs to follow steps. Bringing about Archaic issues like historical biblical rights, and heavily suspicious naming issues is not going to win you any sympathy nor will it bring you peace. At this point Israel and Hamas are happy with preserving the status quo, but the Palestinian people are not, and they will not stand still for a longer period of time! Cease the moment and do something before you wont have anyone to talk to! and before you truly become an apartheid state.
