Observations – all touched upon here and there in my ‘Letters’ –
Don’t ask him to place hand on heart to a flag that bears Jewish symbols, nor sing the National Anthem that ‘hopes’ for the betterment of the Zionist state. The ‘Nation State law’, introduced in July 2018, was, in the opinion of many, including me, an unnecessary reminder of this country’s status. The wording ‘Jewish State’ is unnecessary. We all know what the Israelis want, but it is better described as a ‘State for the Jews’. Both provide a home for Jews, but the latter is more tolerant to its non-Jewish citizens. Unlike most of the neighbouring Middle East countries, Israel always intended to be multi-religious, multi-cultural.
