"Why is it that Jews cannot build homes.." .... That'd be 'Israelis' ..... "Why is it that Palestinians can demand a Jew-free state " .... Show this 'demand' ....

It can call itself whatever it likes and has. The issue is recognition, not what it calls itself. There is no legal basis for demanding to be recognized. Numerous UN Member states do not recognize each other.
