Israel allows no dual citizens in its government. Why does America?

Non-declaration

16. If the speaker of the Knesset has called upon its members to make their declarations of allegiance and a member has not done so, that member shall not enjoy the rights of membership as long as he has not made the declaration.

16A.

Non-declaration due to dual-citizenship (Amendment 22)

If a Knesset member holds an additional, non-Israeli citizenship, and the laws of the country whose citizenship he holds permit him to be released from such citizenship, he shall not declare allegiance until after he has done everything required on his part to be released from such citizenship, and he shall not enjoy the rights of a Knesset member until he makes his declaration.

  1. Israel rules the USA. The US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are zombies for Israel.

    Because Israel is hardly a good model for Government, in my opinion.

    who is a major figure in the US gov’t with dual citizenship? I know it’s not Obama, he lost any right to Kenyan citizenship when he turned 21…

    Robscott2007- That may well be. But the DENIAL of the concept of ‘dual nationality’ is a long-held one among many nations. How can one trust a fellow citizen, if that ‘citizen’ is also a resident of ANOTHER nation, especially one that is historically belligerent to EVERY OTHER NATION on the globe?

    They are not ‘neutral concepts. One must be a ‘citizen’ of a country, or not. The only ‘dual allegiance’ allowed in the modern era, is of being a ‘citizen of Heaven’ and a ‘citizen of an earthly realm’ (i.e., Christian) for the one is subsumed in the other. But, as Zionism is a ‘this-worldly construct’ and therefore a competing vision of Utopia, better to mistrust all Jews, than to trust the WRONG one…. look what happened to Jesus via Judas!

    A lesson we should never have forgotten, BTW.
