    Israelis and their supporters may define their state as Jewish but that makes it neither wise nor just. A Jewish state is as racist and backward as an Islamic state or any other religiously defined State. Any State which demands superiority for the followers of one religion is neither democratic nor civilized. And you make the same mistake Israelis and Jews keep making; you try to compare religion with nationality or race. It is not the Arabs gaining control of Israel it is the Palestinians re-gaining control of enough of their country to live in freedom. If you want to compare then do it with Jew/Moslem; Israeli/Palestinian or Arab/European. Moslem countries do allow Jews to live in them; more than 100,000 live in Iran with full rights. On the other hand, Israel has non-Jews who have inferior rights. This talk of Jews being killed is Zionist propaganda. Jews are not under threat and have not been under threat for more than half a century and even then they were only under threat in particular areas not everywhere. Perspective please.
