the proposed ammendement to israel's naturalisation laws requiring that new aspirants for citizenship take an oath of loyalty to israel as a jewish and democratic state is perfectly legal. every sovereign state has the right to ask prospective citizens to pledge loyalty to the state and to its essential characteristic. the oath asks that aspiring citizens recognise israel as a democratic and jewish state and to respect israel's laws. the proposed law does not ask people to covert to judaism. nor does it apply to any person who is presently an israeli citizen.
