A friend of my sister-in-law found that, should her children ever visit
Israel, there's a possibility that they would be conscripted, despite
never having set foot in the place.  So, of course, they won't.

This is because she never bothered renouncing her own citizenship, and
they are de-jure Israeli citizens by descent.
Truth decays to beauty, and beauty becomes merely charm-
in the end, all that is left is strangeness.
But up and down are forever.  - laws of physics.
