Description
Summary:The idea of Jewish ethnicity, promoted by the ideology of Zionism, accounts for the Israeli refusal to share Palestine with the indigenous Arab-Palestinian population and is responsible for discrimination among Jews. This article argues that Jews constitute a religion and not an ethnic group or racial grouping.
