    I wrote in #1 that the state should be a citizen for all of its people. Many wrote back accusing me of being ignorant and they gave many examples of why Israel should be a Jewsih State.My question is : If one is Palestinian and chooses to convert to Judaism , would he then automaticaly be accepted and DeFacto an Israeli citizen??If , so , would converting to Islam make one a citizen of any Muslim nation?? If one cannot be accepted in Judaism by conversion , does this mean that being Jewsih by faith is not acceptable enough , one must be born Jewish ???If this is the case , with intermarriage , the Private Jewish club will disappear in the near future. Can Israel maintain its Jewishness when the Jews will become a minority in the future due to the difference between the birth rate of Israeli Arabs and Israeli jews? These are important questions to ask from all of the Zionsist appologists that choose to call me ignorant for asking difficult and pognant questions.
