‘ The phenomenon of minorities.
Ideally, “the wolf shall dwell with the lamb”, but we are not living in ideal times. History has shown that there is a dangerous potential for conflict wherever members of two different religions dwell in the same territory. Such was the situation in Northern Ireland for hundreds of years, in the Caucus region of Russia, in the Balkans, and even in Canada. The above truism is even more relevant to our situation as the Israeli-Arab conflict is both religious and nationalistic, thus complicating matters all the more.’
‘An additional measure that would assure the existence of Israel as a Jewish, Zionistic, and democratic state is the introduction of a new citizenship law, which would make citizenship contingent upon one’s declaration of loyalty to the State of Israel as a Jewish state, its symbols, authority and a commitment to serve in the army or in an alternate civilian program. Anyone one who makes the above declaration is welcome to be a citizen of Israel, regardless of race or creed, and conversely, one who refuses to comply may reside in Israel and enjoy state benefits but will not have the right to vote or run for office. These measures will usher in great changes. They therefore require an Israeli government with tremendous determination and invigorated thinking.’
