Even the Venice Commission of the European Union declared that privileging the immigration of a diaspora is legitimate since it does not violate the principle of civic equality for all inhabitants. Dear Yuval, the Law of return does not give Israeli Jewish citizens more rights than non-Jewish citizens of Israel. It just broadens access to citizenship for diaspora Jews. ISpain does the same thing. It gives a right of return to Sephardic Jews but not to the Arabs whose ancestors who were expelled from Spain. Also, Poland gives a right of return to the Polish diaspora (which includes Israeli Jews of Polish descent) but the Germans who were expelled from the country in 1946 are denied this right. Hence, if Spain has the right to give the Jews a right of return, I don't see why Israel should not do so.
