of course I see an equivalence-a state gets to make the rules it wants to live by, and if you want in, you need to pledge to respect them-e.g. respecting Western values about womens' equality and secularism if you are a Muslim wishing to live in France. Don't want to? Don't come. This oath says Israel is a Jewish state. How exactly does that make others second class? Examples please. And I do find it shocking that MKs who represent the state do not have to take the oath. Other citizens, including Arabs, should not have to because they have freedom of opinion. But if you're trying to join something you disagree with, the state has a right not to let you.
