In Ireland we only issue Irish citizenship to those whose Grandparents were born in Ireland. The ancestors of Irish people who emigrated some 150 yrs ago cannot expect to get citizenship.They are considered too far removed. On the other hand--a Polish person who emigrates to Ireland and works and lives there for 5 years is offered citizenship. Israel should try this form of population control. It allows for blending but not self destruction. All the "citizens" of Ireland are allowed to vote in general elections.Residents, most of whom are citizens in waiting are allowed to vote in local elections. There are no arguments or friction between our Diaspora and the home front. Why is it that Jews have this enigma????. Shhhh---land theft perhaps.
