This is absolutely disgusting. Nowhere in rabbinic Judaism does it stipulate that Israel rabbis have greater authority by virtue of their being Israeli. Rabbinic interpretation is precisely that: interpretation. The Talmud teaches that there are always majority and minority opinions. Even Hillel didn't win every arguement. How many thousands of women, who have fought tirelessly to receive their gets, are suddenly going to find themselves among a the multitude of unforunate agunot? If Israel still harbours the hope of diasporic Jews making aliyah, many of whom will do it for religious reasons, than perhaps they should reconsider this policy.
