MGM·Lion BS: (UK) Whither the Labour Party (2383* d) RE: BS: (UK) Whither the Labour Party 10 May 16

"...referring to a country that is a quarter non-Jewish as a Jewish state, by you, me, the UN, Jews inside or outside Israel or anybody else is not accurate," gibbers Steve yet a·bloody·gain.

Sorry Steve: but that is semantic and taxonomic rubbish, which I dealt with some posts back. Is Spain not a Catholic country because a number of Anglicans have taken up residence there? Does the presence of a sizeable Druze minority stop Syria from being a Muslim state? England is a Christian country because it has an established church by statute & tradition. But that doesn't mean that everyone who lives in it has to be a member of that one establishment, does it? — or why do Bradford & Leicester look so different from so many other of our cities?

Similarly, Israel is a state with an official national religion, so it is a Jewish state, properly called, having been declared and established as such -- which doesn't in any way deprive members of any other religion {or none} domiciled there of citizenship.

I think you are making a fantastically fulsome fool of yourself by so pertinaciously declining to grasp so hyalinely patent a point. Surprised at such intransigent idiocy on the part of one whom I generally regard as of at least average intelligence! Please don't wreck a fairly intelligent point, reasonably germane to the theme of the thread, by further pathetic parroting of this piddling non-point!

Thank you!
