9. "A Jewish and Democratic State"

Well, which is it going to be?

Israel is a multiethnic / multireligious nation, as are the majority of nations on earth. You cannot place one ethnic / religious group at the head of the table and say "we're a democracy," without making a mockery of the word democracy. Pluralism is an integral part of the concept.

If - when - the demographics of Israel change, one of these two concepts is going to have to fall away.
