Muslims can have 21 theocracies but Israel, the legitimate and sovereign nation restored to her indigenous people, can not. Another example of Muslim intolerance and hubris. From Chief PLO Negotiator: Palestinians Will Not Accept Israel as "Jewish State" via Daily Alert:
Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator for the Palestine Liberation Organization, rejected on Monday Israel's demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Earlier Monday, Prime Minister Olmert said, "We won't have an argument with anyone in the world over the fact that Israel is a state of the Jewish people. Whoever does not accept this cannot hold any negotiations with me," Olmert said. "This will be a condition for our recognition of a Palestinian state."
