I'v always found the concept of "Jewish Christians" hard to wrap my mind around. But I cannot see what's odd in denying them the right of aliyah, if we accept the concept of a Jewish state at all. Just go by the religious, not ethnic, definition of being Jewish. I've heard that aliyah is also denied to Ethiopian Jews. Can anyone confirm/deny, and if it's indeed so, what's the motivation?
