Reader comment on item: Accepting Israel as the Jewish State[: Public Opinion in Four Arab Countries]

Submitted by Cherif El-Ayouty (Denmark), May 11, 2010 at 03:54

Why wouldn't the Palestinians accept Israel as a Jewish State? Shall I remind them of Saudi Arabia? Iran? Actually, all Arab States declare themselves as Muslim States. I am personally not crazy with the idea that a religion is the law governing a country's actions, but I have not seen once that Israel's domestic or international actions were based on Judaisme as such. So why not let it be called the Jewish State of Israel? An eventual Palestine could be called the Muslim State of Palestine as long as they do not base their lives and actions on their invented, corrupted and regressive Sharia.
