It is about time the Israeli govt did this. It is the only humane thing to do as Jews. As to the phobias expressed by Ben Jabo, he needs to stop thinking so narrowly. The nicer and more understanding we are to others will represent us well in the world. Before Israel's foundation, Jews were treated as non-entites, non-citizen, non humans. Have we not learned anything from this? We can keep our Jewish identity without persecuting others. That is how we survived until now. Even if they don't become full fledged "Jews" per your criteria of conversions, at least will gain friends and allies.
