31. Jewish state?

Has there ever been a referendum among Jews to decide whether the state of Israel is recognized by the people it claims to represent??
32. #30, Stretching the word means nothing.

Nationality requires a territory, a state most of the time. Jews are a religion and a culture with history, not a nation. Israelis are nation. Curds are also a nation but without a state, as are the Druz people within Israel. To most of American, the word "Jew" means religion and a race, like Blacks for instance but with several religions. I am sure this surprises you. But the Haredim will probably accept Jew as a race since they are stuck on genes and the mother lineage. To me, the word "Jew" is a very confusing term in the way it is used.
