Some people believe that all Jews are Israelis. I may not be a Jew nor an Israeli, but I do believe the terms are different. If you call yourself a Muslim, does that mean you are an Arabian? No, it means that you believe in Islam. If you call yourself a Hindu, does that mean you are Indian? No, it means that you believe in Hinduism. If you call yourself Christian, does that mean you are a Greek (as Greece has the highest percentage of the population which is Christian)? No, it means that you believe in Christianity. So why must people say that if you believe in Judaism, you must be an Israeli?

Ok, I accept this debate.
So, the resolution is: " All Jews are not Israelis"

This is will be my only argument for this round...

1. Some Jews are Israeli
You realise that all I have to do to successfully negate the resolution is to show that some, a good percentage of jews are Israeli. Obviously, I concede to the point that some jews are not israeli but you have the impossible task of showing that there are no israeli born Jews in order to fulfill the BoP which you have.

Many sources state that Israel is the the country with the second largest jewish population; America being the largest.

Lets hope that you know where to locate Israel...


The rate of jewish- births per million every year

Conclusion:
I have shown that that some Jews are Israelis which means that the resolution is impossible to defend.
Vote COn!

This guy laughs at the resolution
