The UN Partition Resolution (#181) refers to a "Jewish state" and an "Arab state". These terms are meant by the UN as analogous, and clearly an "Arab state" does not mean "nation state of the Arabs". The conclusion is that "Jewish state" also was not meant as "nation state of the Jews". All the terms meant, as is obvious, is: one state with a Jewish majority and one with an Arab majority (in 1947). People who demand recognition of Israel as a "Jewish state" have a different meaning in mind. They should clarify what the practical implications of the concept are.
