A Jewish State

"There can be no agreement without the Palestinians recognizing Israel as a Jewish state." So the ministers and government speakers keep on saying day by day, and even several times on the same day.

It only remains to be seen whether the Jewishness of the state would have to be like the Jewishness of the army which has accelerated the conversion process for soldiers who are not considered Jewish, or to the Jewishness of the rabbis who still don't recognize these soldiers as Jews - thereby depriving them of the possibility of getting married.
