    The Israeli Americans living "abroad" still have obligations to the State of Israel (their children and themselves both can be drafted if they are between the ages of 18-26 and visit Israel).If their children get drafted for Israel...Why cant they vote to change policy??? Gideon you would undoubtedly agree with letting Israelis abroad vote...if they were leftists. Unfortunately (or fortunately) our environment in non-Jewish states don't let us forget our identity as Jews and our only homeland of Israel... I believe any citizen of Israel should not be able to vote until he has done his national service, be it military or civil. The Haredim as well as the Arabs should not have the ability to vote.- As well as the American or European Jews who have no intention of contributing to the Jewish State.

    from the article: If Israel lets ex-pats vote, what's to stop enfranchising all Jews?
