Why Should Israel Be a "Jewish State?"August 1, 2013 @ 5:17 pm
Among the 80% of Israelis who count as Jews, many are not at all religious. Moreover, if Palestinian Arabs insist on a new, first-ever "Palestinian" state why should that national designation that's just 50 years old get more recognition than a Jewish nationality that goes back at least 3,000 years?
If Palestinians retain the classic anti-Semitic assumption that Jews count as the only people on earth with no right to their own homeland, then the peace talks will go nowhere.
