    A. B. Yehoshuah's definition of who is Jewish is very important. Here is someone thinking. People repeating a Jew has to be born to a Jewish mother do so because they WANT to REPEAT what the orthodox rabbis say. Thus, they refuse to think, so their unthought definition can't have any value. A. B. Yehoshuah's quest is motivated by truth, whatever it is. Sometimes some laws are false but are powerful in minds and society, like the present Israeli definition of "Who is a Jew". Fortunately some thinkers, writers, intellectuals like A.B. Yehoshuah show that. Good job.
