The Real “Jewish State” Story – Ben-Dror Yemini
(dailyalert.org, Apr. 3, 2014)

The U.S. is one of very few countries that aren’t nation-states. Most countries in the world are. In England, the religion of the state is Anglican, and if the next king marries a Jew their children won’t be able to inherit the crown. In Denmark, the constitution establishes the religion of the state as Evangelical-Lutheran, which is granted support and assistance from the state, and its king can only be of that religion. The Basic Law of the Palestinian Authority establishes “Islam as the religion of the state.” And the list goes on and on.

    It’s correct that Israel doesn’t need Palestinian permission to be the nation-state of the Jewish people. The demand for recognition of a Jewish state is aimed at ending the fantasy of the “right of return” and bringing an end to the conflict.

    At the end of the year 2000, it was Bill Clinton who presented parameters for a peace plan that included the words: “Palestine as the homeland of the Palestinian people and the State of Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people.” The insistence on recognition of a Jewish state is basically an insistence on the solution of two states for two peoples. Anyone who justifies the Palestinian refusal is pushing the chances of a two-state solution further away. (Times of Israel)
