    My kids are Israeli citizens but not Jewish because I am not. We left Israel because of the apartheid system. Conversion proces was hell and if one of the rabbis doesn't like your face, you will not be accepted. I will not let my children serve in the IDF, and perhaps even get killed while on duty, if they will not be able to marry and live an acceptable life in Israel. Why fulfill their duties in IDF if Israel discriminates them when it comes to marriage and acceptance? Double standards! I wish Israel would separate "church and state" once and for all.
