    Because the nation of lsraeI was founded by Jews. lt was given specificaIIy to Jews after WWll. Jews are considered an ethnic group because they technicaIIy aren't supposed to mix, although Ashkenazis obviousIy did (if Ashkenazis even are actuaI ethnic Jews that is). Now whether it shouId be an ethnostate or not is up for debate.

    The people of Canada just a little while ago were the Inuit, Métis and First Nations. Then came white people, then blacks were imported around the same time, and now you have Hispanics, OrientaIs, and Middle Easterners. On top of that, Europeans were aIready mixed, but Canada was partly French and partly English. lt's hard for Canada to be an ethnostate.

      Ok Chris, that is certainly incorrect what you’re stating but just since your ignorant mind won’t learn if you follow your statement Americans, Australians and many others need to give their countries back to the original natives

    Israel isn't an ethnostate, though. It's at least not a strict one, since much of its population isn't Jewish in any regard (a full 20% or 1/5 is Arab) and is allowed to participate in all factors of Israeli life, akin to their Jewish co-nationalists. Even considering it's the "Jewish State", one has to recognize that's not strictly an ethnic term, with "Jew" being shorthand for other groups like Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Mizrahi, etc., and that convert Jews in Israel are recognized Jews regardless of ethnic concerns.

    This isn't to say that ethnicity doesn't have a place in discussions with Israel, as there are some rather unique things going on there within Israel and its Jewish populace. However, it's just not so much of a factor in its governance as many people seem to think. Certain discussions on what it means to be an ethnic Israeli are interesting, for example if the Diaspora Jewish populations can still claim it (as genetic studies do show their origins from Israel) or if their mixing will bring it about; however, since NONE of that involves citizenship or rights within Israel, which are universal and not determined by ethnicity, it's irrelevant to the discussion.

    In any case, Canadian isn't an ethnic identity because there has never been so much homogeneity to really form one. Canada is a mish-mash of peoples, and many citizens are still too close to their ethnic origins to really be distinguished from them. Perhaps if Canada closes itself and the population intermixes we can see the emergence of a Canadian ethnicity; but, at the moment, it's really just a nationality. Which is fine, most Canadians want it to be that way.

    Edit: I should point out that the Natives of Canada are a separate ethnic group, and one native to Canada; however, that's not the same as saying that there is a Canadian ethnicity. Canadian, to them, is a term of citizenship, and they rather use their tribal terms that very much predate Canadia to describe themselves ethnically.

    Jews are racial supremacists, the Talmud teaches them to be. They persecute not only Muslims, but also Eritrean Jews. They're an ethnostate because their country's laws are based on the Talmud. They have a branch of government called the Rabbinate.

    I think we should let Israel stay Jewish otherwise they will be trying to take over white countries again. That was the whole reason to give them Israel. Canada and USA, Europe etc should also never take in non whites.
