We don't have enough hot issues, so let's add another. I have mixed feelings about this. We vote in the American national elections, but the absentee ballots are rarely ever used, and they comprise but a very small percentage of the eligible voters. As for Israeli expatriates, there may be more living outside Israel than living here! Their votes would count, but should they? We're not talking of a country of 300,000,000 million people where the absentee ballots mean almost nothing. Israel is a tiny little country with a small population. Are those outside the country paying any taxes here? Do they have any real loyalty? It's not a simple matter.
