Kosher Oxymoron-Jewish Democracy

The Israeli cabinet better decide whether they want their state to be Jewish or democratic, for the two, clearly contradict each other.

(LONDON) - Israeli Defense minister Ehud Barak is expected to back amendment to Citizenship Act.

Here is the amended version:

"I hereby declare my loyalty to the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and I pledge to honor state laws."

Barak said today that "such a declaration will not harm the Arab minority, and declarations of a similar nature are customary in civilized countries around the world"

He is right, such a contradictory declaration cannot harm anyone, for it is logically flawed.

The Israeli cabinet better decide whether they want their state to be Jewish or democratic, for the two, clearly contradict each other.

Israel is in the same position as nazi Germany was, circa say 1936. Story of another supremacist nation. The nazis never really went away, you know. They just went into hiding in the last place anybody would ever think of looking for them, the Jewish diaspora. They even founded their own country. Zionism is nothing but Jewish nazism, and unless it is treated as such, it will consume the world once again. Even now, this 4th reich is on the rise, and we in the United States are breastfeeding it. Israel must be united under a new flag, where being Jew or Muslim makes no difference at all and being an Israeli is all that matters. We have to cast the beam out of our own eye first though. x
