Many democracies have their ex-pats voting. The remarks of Gideon Levy are this time totaly unapropriate. If "yordim" are not popular, they still have relatives in Israel and keep strong feelings for the "moledet". They are ready to contribute in many ways, including voting. Maybe this will also motivate them feel more involved and make the way back some day. Their citizenship is what differentiates them from non-citizens, Jewish or Christians, and should grant them the right of participating in elections. Voting involves more responsability than just supporting a side of the political map.

Let them come. Let them come in droves. Let artists like Bruce Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt bring Israelis who need to hear it, a message of social justice and freedom for Palestinians.18:17 03.05.16 | 1 comments
