    political processes. Otherwise the entrance into the jewish state would be political and not religious. The jewish character of the state should defined by the public sphere and its symbols. Nothing more than that. However, in order to preserve the state as democratic you need a clear majority of jews and that is possibloe through manipulation of immigration proceses. Every country nowadays either directly or indirectly manipulates their makup, and heed cultural compatibility. This is not quite liberal but it is what liberal countries are doing The attitude towards foreign workers children are a case in point proving the difference between an open democratic jewish state and the current one controlled by orthodox.
