If your jewish then you should be allowed to vote makes Gideon Levy look like a fool. Yes jews have the right to emigrate to Israel but until they choose to commit themselves to that making that move then they are not Israeli citizens and if they are not Israeli citizens they have no right to vote anyway jewish or not. Why should Israeli citizens abroad not be allowed a say in the future of THEIR country. They might be abroad but its still their country which they can return to at anytime and so should be allowed a voice even if they are not currently in Israel. Other western democracies such as the US, many EU states & others so why should Israeli citizens be exempt from that right to have a say in the countries future. Absentee voting applies to all citizens no matter race or political views. Has Gideon Levy become a child loosing a temper tantrum so starts grasping at straws to try and justify his argument because it sure seems that way.
