With the destruction of european Jewry and all its rabbis and schools, we are now confronting the fall-out of the lack of quality rabbis in the USA. The American Jews fell away from halacha under overwhelming pressure from goyem and pursuit of the 'Am dream'. The change in Israeli law is intended as part of eliminating the problem of immigration fraud as much as refining the Law of Return. Its not intended as a personal offense to non-observant Jews who clump and annount themselves with a new name. Remember, the original Conservative movement was just a switch by the chazzan from Tricorn hats to Top hats!! He didn't change what was under the hat!!
