    So the Israelis can accept all the non-Jewish Russians that brought pork to Netanya but not someone that is without question a Jew from Birth. I happen to have a family tree with the Streisand family in it proving that he is Jewish. The main question is what is the minimum standard for allowing a Jew an automatic right to live in Israel. I would agree that Meir Lansky had the minimum and should have been allowed in . If you ask the orthodox they may say that you must observe the Sabbath and keep Kosher.I say if you have a Jewish mother you are Jewish.
