    is a democracy, but the Arabs in Israel may not act against Israeli law which considers the state of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people and that is based on UN resolution 181 which in principle has called for the establishment of a Jewish and an Arab nation-state. The Arabs rejected UN 181 and initiated a war that was aimed at the annihilation of the Jewish state and everything Jewish in this shared land of ours. Yet, the nation-state of the Jewish people has survived this and consequent attempts to annihilate it. Refusing to recognize the right of Israel to be, not only the fact, and the nature of this state, the nation-state of the Jewish people, implies a hope to, when possible, to see once again the elimination of this political entity. We, Jews, can not accept it because we too, individually and collectively, have the right to exist, and we too have the right to defend our very existence, including against the Arabs in Israel.
