The jewishness of the State of Israel was posited by Ben Gurion and his cronies when they founded the State. They were not exactly orthodox. I am interested to hear how you develop your idea, though. Let's see: A politically defined Jew without recourse to religion at all. Why bother calling it a Jew; let's rather just call it an Israeli and be done. That would firstly include all the Palestinians who live here. They definitely have a deep love and respect for the land, and less of them leave than do Jewish Israelis. As for defining Jewishness through symbols: are a six-pointed star and seven branched candlestick sufficient? OK! a deal. We're in business. Maybe just chuck in an olive branch for good luck, or a dove to show what nice people we are. But your next point of preserving a 'clear majority of Jews' is a problem. Let's create a zoo filled with haredim. You don't have to call it a zoo, but that's how it would function. Let's call it Bene Beraq just for fun.... Oh boy, this is beginning to sound like certain Middle Eastern terrorist entity. Let's all go back to Russian, or Germany, or wherever.
