    Amos Schocken objects to the amendment to the Citizenship Law. He thinks that Israel should not emulate the policy of Denmark and Holland, both examplary democracies, who have passed laws preventing citizenship and permanent residency to anubody who does not have a deep connection to these countries. He thinks that Israel should allow Palestinians from the territories who marry Israeli citizens to live permanently in Israel. Here we have, the Danes and the Dutch, who are not in a state of war with no other country, who are not in danger of becoming a minority in teoir own countries, passing laws limiting immigartion, but, according to Schocken, Israel is not allowed to do the same, because it is not "democratric".... Every democracy has laws regulating imigration and citizenship. Israel should ignore Schocken's advice and maintain the amendment to the Citizenship Law, if it wants to maintain Israel as a Jewish and a democratic state.
