Committee to re-establish the Jewish State discusses what a Jewish State means
זכותו של העם היהודי למדינה, מוצגת בהכרזת העצמאות כזכותו הטבעית של העם היהודי, להיות ככל עם ועם, עומד ברשות עצמו במדינתו הריבונית
This right is the natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate, like all other nations, in their own sovereign State
Taken from Israel’s Declaration of Independence, the above statement defines what a Jewish State means legally.
But what does it mean to you?
In order to remain a Jewish State, Jews must surely maintain a majority in terms of voting rights.
Billy, the Campaign to re-establish the Jewish State, writes:
“Citizenship should be reserved for Jews. Whether Jewish by birth or by way of conversion (subject to Halakha), only Israeli citizens are entitled to and will receive the full benefit of what the State of Israel has to offer. This includes, voting rights, rights to financial, housing or other State support (as applicable). Foreigners from any other country (excluding those citizens who make Aliyah) may apply for residence permission and subject to the relevant restrictions, these Registered Foreign Residents may live and work peacefully within the borders of Israel, but may not receive any form of State Aid or Financial Benefit from the State. An exception applies for Druze, Circassian residents. Current citizens of the State of Israel shall continue to enjoy all of the rights and privileges of Israeli citizenship.”
And in terms of voting rights, the Campaign has published it’s Official Policy:
“All citizens of Israel may vote in Local, Municipal and National elections. This includes absentee ballots for those citizens living abroad. Registered Foreign Residents may vote in Local and or Municipality elections but may not vote in National elections. An exception applies for Druze, Circassian residents.”
