Israeli cabinet OKs defining Israel as Jewish state
« on: May 15, 2017, 03:00:52 PM »
It's impossible to make the Jew-hating UN hate Israel even more, but this should set the news world on fire as it weaves its way through the minefield of Israeli politics.

Quote
May 7 (UPI) -- Israel's cabinet on Sunday approved legislation that officially defines the country as a Jewish nation-state.

The Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted unanimously to endorse Likud Minister Avi Dichter's Jewish state bill, which also downgrades Arabic from designation as an "official language" and says "the national language is Hebrew."

The legislation, which faces a lengthy process in the Knesset, says that "the State of Israel is the national home of the Jewish people, in which it realizes its aspirations for self-determination according to its cultural and historic traditions. The realization of national self-determination in the State of Israel is unique to the Jewish people."

I'm surprised. I would have thought they would have done this in 1948.

Like us here in the US having to press #2 for English, Israel never thought things would get to the point their national identity would be at risk either.
We could take a page from their book.

Start with how they secure their airports and then the wall.

Arming every citizen seems to be working out well also.
