..quite frankly, I think your argument misses the mark. Israel's security issue is not directly connected to the position of the Israeli Arabs, nor to its nature as a Jewish State. Israel has territorial conflicts with the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, and with Syria/Libanon. That's it. When it comes to Israel being a Jewish State, and the way Arab citizens are treated, it's not about security. It's a question of ideology: Does Israel want to be a real democracy, or does it want to be an ethnic state? The Arabs in Israel are not a security threat. They are just a "disturbing element" in Israel's self-definition as both democratic and Jewish.
