“The Jewish State is clear in its objectives, even implementation and application. It means eliminating 20% of the Jewish entity’s citizens; Arabs and Palestinians. It probably means forcing them out; transferring them.
“Those who are calling for the Jewishness of ‘the State’ are performing a political act…whose fundamental aim is the complete closure of the right of return. And it is not only the right of return that is being rejected here: Also prohibited is the remaining of the Palestinians who are upon their lands and forbidden houses in the Galilee and in the Triangle and in the Negev and in Jerusalem, as a ‘first stage,’ and in every place where there are Palestinians.
“A Jewish state endangers not only Palestinians, but also the Arab World, and the global security. It is a call for legitimizing a racist entity, built on pure ethnic and theocratic criteria. They apparently think that they are a race, and they want a racist state! All of this doesn’t end with the Palestinian issue; it becomes a general [international] matter, which raises the question:
“Will the present international system, with its modernity and development, and after banishing the racist entities, allow the development of a theocratic regime, successor of racist regimes that have disappeared, where anyone who does not recognize it cannot live there?”
—The political editor of the Palestinian Authority WAFA news agency
Editor’s Note: Although Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders recently have been emphasizing the need for Israel to be recognized as a Jewish state, it is not a new concept. The United Nations resolution in November 1947 repeatedly refers to the Jewish state (www.yale.edu/lawweb/avalon/un/res181.htm). The United States recognized the new state of Israel within 11 minutes. This recognition in part said, “We pledge full recognition to the State of Israel. We affirm our pride that the United States, under the leadership of President Truman, played a leading role in the adoption of the resolution of November 29, 1947, by the United Nations General Assembly for the creation of a Jewish state…” Sixty-one years later, and the Islamic world still has not recognized the Jewish nature of the State of Israel or accepted her existence. The charges in this article are inaccurate—there are more than one million Arab citizens of the State of Israel who have all the rights of citizenship.
