Israel is the only state in the ’modern’ world in which citizenship and nationality are two separate, independent concepts. Israel is NOT the state of its citizens, but the state of the Jewish People. Moreover, Israel does not have a constitution. So, these are the FACTS avoided by those countries that have boycotted, or hijacked the Durban Review conference. Unsurprisingly, most, if not all, of these countries are, historically, either racist, settler-colonialist, or have a legacy of slavery.
