Here is an easy solution to this debate/problem on the Law of Return: Keep it as is, but merely add this one, little stipulation: non-Jewish immigrants must convert to Judaism. This would not make immigration such a walk in the park for them. Only those truly dedicated would undergo the conversion. And, for the few that conned their way through or slipped through, they would come out of the experience at least knowing much more about Judaism and the culture (and, arguably, 'officially' Jewish). Of course, such a change would probably lead to a rise in counterfeited documents so non-Jews could avoid the conversion process. Thus, the Jewish Agency would have to invest more time and energy into verifying a person's background if they claimed themselves "Jewish."
