Even if the Palestinians were foolish enough to recognize Israel as a Jewish state I am certain that Netanyahu or whomever else was in the PM office would find a new obstacle to peace and to ending the occupation and place even more demands on the Palestinians while giving nothing in return. And meanwhile the construction of the illegal settlements and the theft of Palestinian lands would continue unabated until nothing was left for a viable Palestinian state. I think that is exactly what Netanyahu is counting on.. The Palestinians recognized Israel 21 years ago. Why is is so essential that they must say it is a Jewish state? No other country demands to be recognized for its major ethnicity. Even though the U.S. is overwhelmingly Christian we have never demanded recognition as a Christian state nor should we. We are the country of ALL our people and so should Israel.
