The intent of the law is clearly to make non-Jewish citizens of Israel feel less like less legitimate citizens. The mere fact that the term Jewish is so closely associated with a race and religion would tend to make Arab and Muslim citizens feel excluded.

While Israel's foundation as a Jewish homeland is certainly a central element of its identity, the addition of this clause at this time with the support of the same leaders that are proposing population exchange can not be ignored. The clause is discriminatory in intent and does deviate from the norm of western democracies.
