Israel's values as a Jewish state differentiate it from other democratic states. There are many democracies around the world. Only Israel is not just a democratic state but a Jewish one as well. “The Jewish state” is the state of the Jewish People; it is a state to which any Jew has a right to immigrate – the ...
We are still arguing among ourselves over whether the two-state solution is dead, but here's a question that is rarely, if ever, asked: Exactly when did the idea of peaceful co-existence between a Jewish state and an Arab state first enter the international diplomatic conversation? The surprising answer is ...
Prior to Israel's founding in 1948, the village residents lived northwest of where the village currently stands. Like many Bedouin, they were expelled during and after the 1948 war, and like most Arab citizens of the nascent Jewish state, they were placed under strict martial law until 1966. Bedouin inspect the ...
We are not only a democratic state but also a Jewish state.” Finally, voices of protest have been raised over the new draft bill's clause “allowing the establishment of residential communities for Jews alone” (something that even a member of Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party likened to “apartheid”). But Palestinian ...

The Jewish component in Israel's definition as Jewish and democratic not only hasn't been neglected in legislation, it even preceded the human-rights Basic Laws by more than 40 years.

Palestinian revolt against the Jewish state is precisely the idea that Facebook is suppressing.

“It really bothered me that no other alternatives [to the law] were discussed. The discussion was restricted and revolved around the framework created by the right, which focused on the Jewish State. It lacked mention of a minority group. Our status, our rights. Twenty percent of the Israeli population were ...

The Israeli Knesset is fast tracking a “nation-state bill” which opposition groups have denounced as “institutionalising the apartheid regime”.

Yair Lapid, head of the centrist opposition Yesh Atid party, said Israel should recall its ambassador immediately in response to Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki's comments, which he called "anti-Semitism of the oldest kind". "The perpetrators are not the victims. The Jewish state will not allow the ...

The latest study of U.S. Jewish attitudes towards Israel only confirms the trend– Zionism is tanking; there is growing indifference to the idea of a Jewish state among younger, unaffiliated Jews. Here's that survey of over 3500 Bay Area Californians, 96 percent of whom consider themselves Jewish or partly ...
"The leader of the Jewish state simply should not accept gifts from billionaires," Bennett continued. "That's not how to educate a young generation, and that's not how we've been educated." Meanwhile, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, another coalition partner, on Wednesday insisted that there was no ...
But remember – the Supreme Court is essentially Zionist, and therefore it is always biased towards the “Jewish State”. Since that concept cannot be challenged in any meaningful way, and since Shaked is actually voicing Zionist ideology honestly and vociferously, one is left with very little meaningful ...

Jewish men gather to watch the funeral of leading spiritual authority for ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel and around the world, Rabbi Aaron Yehuda Leib Shteinman, in the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak on December 12, 2017. Shteinman, who also wielded heavy influence on Israeli ultra-Orthodox political ...
Anyone who is reluctant to say that he wants to live in a Jewish state has to explain why he doesn't want to live in an Arab state.

The forces of the Jewish hard right and the Jewish hard left have united.

What's notable is that Aziz not only defends Ibrahim and his visit to Tel Aviv University, but goes on to praise the Jewish state itself as a safe haven for all, both Jews and Arabs. First, Aziz turns the table by taunting the raucous Arab students, asking, "Why do you study there? Aren't you traitors, too? Why not ...
As a result, Israel proper would remain a majority Jewish state with room to grow into most of the West Bank. The Palestinians could have several states: Gaza/Sinai; Saudi Arabia/Palestine, and a northern state across Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and part of the West Bank. All of the inhabitants of the region ...
Jewish identity politics complicate the Palestinian response to the existence of Israel as a Jewish state.

The initiative, which was approved by an executive decree last week, marks the largest monetary investment yet by Israel toward combating the BDS movement against the Jewish State.

What Oz says, and is widely believed, is that there is no solution available to Palestine unless there is a sovereign independent Jewish state along 1967 borders as the essential core of any credible diplomatic package.

But ever since it has treated the Jewish state with open contempt, driven largely by the 22-nation Arab League and the 57 member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

He never mentions Palestinian rejection of U.S.-Israeli and Israeli-only offers of a West Bank and Gaza Strip country in exchange for peace with Israel as a Jewish state in 2000, 2001 and 2008, or spurning of U.S. “frameworks” for talks toward such an outcome in 2014 and 2016. Cohen obsesses over “the ...

Truman's recognition of Israel as one of the two most significant statements ever made by any U.S. president regarding the future of the Jewish state.

In the lead up to the day when David Ben-Gurion read aloud Israel's Declaration of Independence in 1948, there was a fierce battle in the U.S. Administration surrounding whether to recognize the new Jewish State.

This could break the impass Israel-Palestine. It doesn't rule out East Jerusalem as capital of the State of Palestine. Much of the "Left" put all the blame on Israel.
