you are swearing allegiance to a Jewish state. This oath applies to non-Jews being naturalized, not to Jews who enter under the law of Return. The oath does not convert you, it requires you to respect the Jewish character of the state you are voluntarily joining. Just like all the other states require newcomers to agree with their principles, as Joe wrote so well. I notice no one is comparing the US and Norway with Saudi Arabia because of this?
