    Does anyone dispute...

    "In Israel Citizenship and nationality are two different things.

    "Citizenship (ezrahut) may be held by Arabs or Jews.

    "Nationality (le'um), bestows much greater rights than citizenship, is for Jews alone.

    "In 1972 the Supreme Court that non-Jews cannot qualify for nationality rights in the state of Israel because there is no Israeli nation separate from the Jewish people.

    "nationality (plural nationalities)

    1. Membership of a particular nation or state, by origin, birth, naturalization, ownership, allegiance or otherwise.
    2. National, i.e. ethnic and/or cultural, character or identity.
    3. A people sharing a common origin, culture and/or language, and possibly constituting a nation-state.
    4. Political existence, independence or unity as a national entity."

    Is this obsessive or accurate?

    "The Israeli 'democracy' that the Fundamentalist/Christian Zionists so devotedly support is a theocratic-racist state.

    "It is a Jewish/Zionist state devoted exclusively to the culture, interests, heritage and religion of the Jewish people.

    "Immigration is based on being Jewish.

    "Any Jew (on the planet?) can claim citizenship while Palestinians who lived there for decades and were expelled in an ethnic cleansing and to this day are denied the right to return to their homeland.

    Red rules.
    Green drools.

    Are you a citizen or national of Israel?

    Do you agree with the proposed amendment to Israel's citizenship law that would require all newly naturalized citizens to "...declare loyalty to the Jewish character of the state?"

    Would this be like Britain requiring Jews, Muslims and atheists applying for citizenship to pledge loyalty to the Church of England?

    You are obsessive George. It matters not what you post. You post all over this site with a spewal of human hatred that has you so down in the red as a troll that nothing you post has any significance.

    I thought citizenship and nationality were the same thing?
