Guess what? Israel is a Jewish State.
Yasir Arafat, in an interview with the “Jewish” newspaper Haaretz pointed out to the interviewer and its Jewish readers that Israel is “definitely a Jewish State.”
Chairman Arafat also went on to say that the right of return for Palestinian refugees should be implemented only after Palestinian refugees converted to Judaism so as to not change the “Jewishness” of the Jewish State. In this candid and informal interview Arafat also mentioned his concern over the recent incursions into the West Bank and Gaza Strip. He was obviously distraught and visibly shaken by the high percentage of Bedouin and Druze soldiers deployed into the occupied territories, thus diluting the Jewish character of the occupation.
