    need anyone to tell us who we are. We know who we are, members of a people of nearly 4,000 years whose affinity to each other, whose affinity all these years to a particular geographic location, who is guided in its daily life and worldview by a set of texts of teachings composed in its collective unique language that has been in use all these years, who is the human component of a whole civilization - the Jewish civilization. Yet, we must also realize that for many decades there are those who have attempted many times to annihilate our modern nation-state of Israel and everything Jewish between the Jordan river and the sea. Before all else, we must therefore demand of those who set to eliminate us and now say, and only say, that they want to live alongside us, to simply recognize us as a people and our state, Israel, as the nation-state by right of our people so as to at least in writing state that Israel is a legitimate political entity. Their reusal says it all!!!!!
