And isn't it coincidental that no sooner than Abbas conceded to Israel's demand by ackowledging that recognition a few years back - the demand suddenly morphed(I believe at the instigation of the little man himself), to become the recognition of Israel as a "Jewish" state. Lieberman and company are doing the same with this oath, as they're doing with that demand - they're using it as a means to justify denying them by shoving it down the throats of the Palestinians, knowng that they'll not be able to swallow it. It's a vile fascist ploy that attempts to USE Israel's Jewish identity to alienate and further marginalize its Palestinian citizens...just as the demand of Abbas is meant as a debilitating barrier to a peace agreement and a Palestinian state.
