Before we begin, let me remind you of the definition of Israel. Israel considers itself to be a Jewish state (formally codified in its 1948 Declaration of Independence), which means that its entire purpose is to provide what is commonly referred to as a “Jewish homeland”. Why a race or religion must have a singular nation-state forcibly created for it is something of a mystery; my sons are white/Asian interracial, so they have no “racial homeland”; should this be considered a crisis? The natives of the Americas have no distinct “homeland” either; should families be displaced from their homes in order to create one for them?.
