Liberman: Israel Means a Jewish State


Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman defined Israel as a Jewish state is a press release on Monday. "Decades before the founding of the state in 1948, the international community recognized the Land of Israel as the homeland of the Jewish nation," he wrote. "Palestinian representatives for their part have refused to recognize Israel as the Jewish state." He added, "Israel is to the Jewish people what France is to the French people, Ireland is to the Irish and Japan is to the Japanese."
