    Gideon Levy writes: "It is not difficult to guess how Justice Naor would react if a court in Europe were to issue such a ruling with respect to Jewish citizens." There are so many lies implied in this sentence that it is worth pointing some out: * The Israeli ruling does not refer to its Arab citizens, or to any ethnicity. It refers to citizens of countries or entities at war with Israel who want to immigrate to Israel through marriage. The ethnic background of the Israeli citizen whom they request to marry is not an issue. * Lately, many European countries have enacted similar rulings which prevent their citizens to bring in (many) wives from non-EU countries (typically from North Africa). These would-be immigrants are not even from entities at war with the EU, and are not engaged in trying to annihilate the EU countries, unlike the case in Israel. In Israel, 11% of Arab citizens convicted of aiding terror have immigrated to Israel through marriage.
