It seems to me that there is confusion among Zionists on who is a Jew and who is Israel. Many are beginning to realise that Israel is no different from a secular state, its ideology is secular and its existence has nothing to do with God.
So much for a “Jewish character”.
Who wants a secular state defined by Hitler and run by Jews?

The current â€œWho is a Jewâ€ crisis, which is irritating many Diaspora Jewish leaders, was precipitated by the proposal of Israelâ€™s Sephardic Chief Rabbi to deny converts, both Orthodox and otherwise, automatic rights to become Israeli citizens under the Law of Return. The underlying issues inherent in the Chief Rabbiâ€™s proposal are much deeper and have greater implications than meet the eye.
Last week the UKâ€™s influential weekly Jewish newspaper The Jewish Chronicle in its editorial went directly to the heart of this matter. Responding to the Chief Rabbiâ€™s proposal, it concluded that it is â€œsmall wonder that some think the time is long overdue for the separation of synagogue and state in Israel.â€
Indeed, the Jewish character of the state of Israel is really what is at stake here.
