The world has moved beyond ethnic states. The EU idea is based on a non-ethnic state, and the US is of course a prime example. In a democracy, a state is the state of all its citizens, and they decide by majority how the state should act (with constitutional protection for minorities). Netanyahu is presenting himself as a retard when he demands recognition as an ethnic state. The peace with Egypt and Jordan had no such a requirement. Of course, Netanyahu's goal is to decide the refugee problem before it is negotiated: If Israel is a state of the Jews, then no Arab refugee should come in. This is a hopeless demand which will only provide an excuse for non-action. Fortunately, Netanyahu will not act anyhow, so it is a non-issue.
