Israeli neo-Nazis

Just what Israel needs.
MK Zevulun Orlev (NU-NRP) is expected to present the Knesset plenum with a bill calling to revoke the suspects' citizenship. MK Effi Eitam (NU-NRP) said he would present the plenum with a recommendation to amend the Law of Return.

According to Eitam, people who harbored a hatred of Jews and a hatred of Israel in their hearts find a safe haven in Israel by taking advantage of a loophole in the Law of Return.

In the past, NU-NRP members have tried to advance bills that would revoke parts of the Law of Return but have failed.

The Law of Return, which states that one only has to have one Jewish grandparent to immigrate as a Jew, has allowed thousands of non-halachicly Jewish descendants of Jews to immigrate to Israel with the same benefits as Jewish immigrants.

Cabinet members on Sunday viewed videos presented by police that showed the alleged gang members, faces covered, kicking and punching helpless citizens, as well as posing with IDF-issued weapons and displaying "heil Hitler"-style salutes.
