soon gays will want a gay state, albinos will want an albino state, and doctors would want a doctor state. this whole direction goes against democracy. democracy does not differentiate between religions. judaism is a religion not a nationality. if i had to recognize israel my wording would be: "i recognize that the state of israel exists" because if i say: "i recognize the jewish state of israel," im claiming that non jews are not welcome. and hence the arab israelis, or palestinians in israel would lose thier rights because they are not jewish. there is no way for palestinian leaders to recognize a jewish state without betraying its people. appart from recognizing the state of israel as a state and not a jewish state.
