Defining Israel as a Jewish state is something that arouses concern, according to Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit who spoke to the Al Arabiya network on Monday.

Gheit feared for the fate of Israeli Arabs in the case that the UN approves a decision to define Israel as a Jewish state.

"Would they give them all the citizens rights that they deserve? Would they remain a minority or could it be that they would be deported?" Gheit said in the Al Arabiya report.
