If a state is declared as Jewish, then laws will be made favoring only the Jewish population and its desires. If so, and if within the confines of the state there are non-Jewish populations, then that state cannot call itself democratic because the law-making does not take into consideration all of the population - only the Jewish part. Of course we could always ship out all the goyim, but then how would we call ourselves democratic after such a totalitarian move as that? Hm-m-m. Maybe there really is no such thing as Jewish and democratic, and we're going to have to decide between the two. That, my friends, is the only question at stake. I myself, as a Jew, prefer democracy in order to keep my Judaism unstained by unspeakable acts against others. To each his soul, but what is point of "saving" my Jewishness by losing any shred of anything the rabbis and Hazal have taught us throughout the years. In "saving' ourselves, we will have destroyed ourselves. We will have done to ourselves what our enemies never could.
