ABSTRACT
The article discusses the proposed amendment to the Citizenship Law which aims to have anyone requesting Israeli citizenship to declare loyalty to Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. There is a claim that the amendment is an unnecessary provocation against the country's Arab population, while columnist Nahum Barnea sees the proposal as a racist move when it compels non-Jews and does not demand the same rule of Jews. The author concludes that a truly democratic state is the one whose resources are equally and justly distributed.
