Jay Shapiro seeks to deal with the conflict frequently presented by the media about the State of Israel - whether it is more Jewish or more democratic.

In his opinion, there need not be a clear decision, since the state can be both Jewish and democratic.

He also explains how this is possible, contrary to the claims of those who think that a Jewish state can not be democratic.
