Judaism, is a theological belief system, and not a race or ethnicity.
Throughout Europe, every nation had or has, Jews, and the lineage goes to the ancient tribes, and some changed religious beliefs to what was working better for them, or what might be simplified, and so forth.
As far as declaring Israel the national home for Jews, it works, however, does that mean those seeking to inflict harm on Jews need not be in the Western world, simply ship them off to where they may do whatever, to Israel?
Another point is, if Israel proclaims to be the national home of Jews, will that give legal grounds to finally declare America as the national home for Christians, which decades ago sent the UN into fits? I support, the US official language to be established as English, and Christianity the official religion.
