    I didn't really know that, but I can't say I am surprised because I have read something like two-thirds to three-quarters of Jewish Israelis are non-practising, and never attend a synagogue each week. Also, something like a third consider themselves agnostics.

    It's not really my place to say who is Jewish enough to be let into Israel. All I was doing is stating that Israeli law seems to contradict Jewish law. On a side note, it is nearly impossible to leave any religion officially.

    Think about it. Where they are located. Major religions of the area. I know a decent number of Christians like to proselytize, but they aren't going to make that much of a difference in this specific situation. Monotheists, have a difficult time trying to make sense of a human proxy. I'm sure your aware they consider it idolatry. So, any occasional growth spurts of Christianity in such a heavily populated monotheist area, will remain minimal at best.

    Yes I have, and there's the simple factor that the future isn't written in stone. I know you have a hard time comprehending this notion.

    Plus, take into account what Falcarius stated above.

    ...also, Christians depend on a Jewish Israel for their Armageddon/Rapture scenario to play out.

    If the monk's mother was Jewish, then according to Jewish law he will always be Jewish. Whether he was practicing or not, doesn't take away that status. I wonder what the loophole was for taking his citizenship.

    It just might also be possible that in 10 years, the USA will merge with Canada, Mexico, and Cuba as the new communist empire, under the leadership of premier Jerry Seinfeld.

    Now, I assure you that what I just said is possible, but I do not think it is probable in the least. We make predictions about the future based on apparent likelihoods.

    That's only true for Dispensationalists, which only originated in the 19th century. Every other Christian tradition rejects the concept of a Rapture, or that the existence of Israel is necessary for the End Times.

    Notice I'm not saying that Israel is going to turn Catholic overnight or even in the forseeable future.

    But hey, nice attempt at hyperbolic satire.

    I think the amount of time it would take for Catholicism to have a large presence in Israel sets it irrelevantly far into the future. Not to mention that the further you have to look into the future for something to happen, the more unseen factors there are, and the more time there is for things to change. The further you look ahead, the less dependable present trends become.
