    clearly you are wrong about Israel: 1. Druze (non-Jews) feel connected to the national identity of Israel according to this article 2. although Jews may be the majority nation in Israel, all citizens regardless of race, ethnicity or religion have equal rights 3. anybody can become a citizen of israel regardless of race, ethnicity or religion if they apply or get married to an Israeli 4. the idea of a jewish state means that its a state representing the Jewish people as a nation reflecting their culture......the same way England represents the British people as a nation, or India the indian people.....Why are the people of India able to have a state that represents their ethnicity and culture, but according to you the Jews aren't? In contrast, take a look at some of Israel's neighbors: 1. Saudi Arabia: non-Muslims cannot own land 2. Jordan: it is illegal for any Jewish person to become a citizen. why? because he is Jewish.
