    I am a convert that serves this land with love and respect. I am a convert that contributes taxes towards the government . I am a convert that is a JEW and a citizen of Israel. I am a convert that support the State of Israel. This proposed law must be stopped as it inflicts upon the rights of thousands of converts that helped build the State of Israel. It is an embarrassment to many converts that paid the ultimate price to be a Jew. Avraham ( and his seed), Ruth, Onkolos, Yitro, rabbi Akiva are all converts. What about the rights of descendants of converts? in other words what about the right of a Jew as all Jews are descendants of Avraham and Sarah the first converts? This is an absurd lawQ Stop it
