Israel has its constitution set out in its “Basic Laws”. It would seem to me that Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People
which states, “Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People” must exclude some people (presumably from obtaining a majority stake in the power structure). Something isn't for (or of) a specific people, unless it excludes others. Does the term “of the Jewish People” given the context of the law exclude others on the basis on religion, or race and ethnicity?

Under what circumstance could the State of Israel operate such that the law would fall into conflict with the practices of government and people could conclude that Israel was no longer “of the Jewish people”? Does this law exclude the possibility of a single-state solution where all Palestinians are given universal suffrage and equal rights, including the right of return, in the government? And if that's allowed: then I'm confused what meaning this phrase (often repeated) has, if any?
