Gilad Atzmon: Kosher Oxymoron-Jewish Democracy

Israeli Defense minister Ehud Barak is expected to back amendment to Citizenship Act.

Here is the amended version:

"I hereby declare my loyalty to the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and I pledge to honor state laws."

Barak  said today that "such a declaration will not harm the Arab minority, and declarations of a similar nature are customary in civilized countries around the world"

He is right, such a contradictory declaration cannot harm anyone, for it is logically flawed.

The Israeli cabinet better decide whether they want  their state to be Jewish or democratic, for the two, clearly  contradict each other.
