Forgive me if I have problems understanding all this but why a loyalty oath sixty years after the establishment of the State of Israel? Why now? Is there some reason the right wing has to insist that citizens pledge their loyalty to Israel as a Jewish State now when they had not been asked to do this by law for the past six+ decades? The right wing in Israel is edging closer and closer to facism and Israel's supporters in the Diaspora are becoming both alienated as well as angry. First, Israel wants to change the bill for conversion and now the loyalty oath. It seems that the Jewish purity police are now in control and that does not bode well for the future of a democratic Israel.
