    Jews compose a group that follow a common cultural heritage, whose basis is religion. Religion is thus just a basis for a national culture. There is no need to be religious to be a jew. The state was conceived for that people defined as jews. The only question however is who could anybody be accepted into the jewish state. named israel. Orthodox jews that control the state conditioned the grant of citizenship to THEIR religious criteria and that is the problem. The state should get free of orthodox zeal and open the state jewishness to other branches of judaism, who display a more positive interpretation of the jewish national ethos. Symbols are enought? Symbols and the right of return to jews and those that want to be part of the jewish people . Any problem with that observer? Does it affect non jewish citizens??? Not at all. Arabs in Israel should have liberal rights and be part of society . What about Muslims that want to join ? Ughh what a problem? We should ask the dutch, the germans or the french how do they deal nowadays with Muslims applying for citizenship. It seems that they will find a wide variety of criteria for not letting them in. They know one thing or two about that kind of immigration. Middle estern terrorist entity???? What are talking about observer.? About Hammas Fatah or Hizbalah?
