It is increasingly ridiculous and unprecedented for Israel to allow those who 1) reject the legitimacy of Israel (official name - Medinat Yisroel, which in biblical hebew means state of the Jewish People) , 2) reject its 1948 declaration of independence as a Jewish State (read it - its in there several times), AND/OR reject a loyalty oath to the state of Israel as the Knesset is passing, to vote and hold office in the country. The USA would allow nobody to do this - rejecting the legitimacy or independence of the US (its called treason), and not only those seeking to be naturalized citizens, but also those already here. Ditto refusal to take a loyalty oath, if you want a government job or be elected to office. Any naturalized citizen or green card holder who refused to recognize and obey US laws would be denaturalized and deported. Current Israeli residents who refuse all 3 should be given 5 years to correct this deficiency, or have their citizenship revoked and deported. Its not East Germany, there is no Wall keeping people from leaving if they want to, the security barrier is to keep terrorists OUT. No country in the world, anywhere, allows people to continue living there as citizens if they reject the state and seek its overthrow and downfall. Don't like it there, get the hell out. There is no "international law" that requires tolerating treason and sedition either. So those prattling about a "One-State Solution" should keep this in mind - no PLO parties in Israel, and no PLO voters, and no more PLO in the Knesset - the Knesset is now outlawing this, just as the US doesn't allow Taliban to become US citizens.
