    The grand indefensible idea is contained in the pleasing-sounding words "maintaining a Jewish demography" -------words which pass by without a comment; a given. However much we like a jewish state, * policies * of * maintaining * a * Jewish * majority * must rely on means which are either morally illegitimate or specifically illegal. And just as maintaining a jewish demography by force is illegitimate, so too no one,, whether Palestinian or israeli, may be cudgeled or threatened into swearing on oath that israel is a "Jewish state." Israel's indefensible border is the one around its jewish hegemony/majority.
