                                  Answer:
   
   Israelis are citizens of Israel. Jews may automatically become Israeli
   citizens under the terms of the Law of Return (as long as they have
   not renounced the Jewish faith), as may those associated with Jews,
   such as certain close family members. The Law of Return does not grant
   immediate citizenship to Jews who, sadly, practice other religions. In
   the case of people whose status as Jews is uncertain, Israel will
   still rescue them, especially if they risk being killed as a result of
   Jew-hatred.
   
   There have been efforts to amend the law of Return to exclude from
   automatic citizenship people whose conversions to Judaism would be
   unacceptable by Orthodox halachic standards. While this might only
   affect tens of people, it is an extremely sensitive issue.
