He can appeal to the courts in Israel I am sure--more than can be said about the way the law is upheld in most of the terrorist supporting countries that Finkelstein supports.
He is a disgrace to his parents, who were Holocaust survivors and a disgrace to the jewish people.
Goodbye to bad rubbish

As he is Jewish he has an right of return and israeli citizenship, unlike the palestinians at least up to now

He does, but the government has the right to reject his request based on criminal record, support of terrorists etc. Anyway, I do not think he is asking for citizenship.
BTW, pk, will Jews have the right to request Palestinian citizenship when the Palestinian state is formed??? (I doubt it)

Thank God Israel has some good sense. Its citizens, even its Code Pink ladies after the last time Lebanon invaded, have finally understood what they need to do to survive.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
