Is it a problem to be Jewish?

Israeli media are full of fake tears over Arik Ofir, the boy who died in a traffic accident in Ofakim. What made Ofir special was the fact that local rabbis refused to bury him in the Jewish cemetery. Leftists accused the rabbis of being insensitive, etc.

This, however, is a Jewish country. If not life, then at least death here is governed by Jewish law. The boy had no religious affiliation in his ID papers. He was born abroad and adopted in Israel. The rabbis reasonably doubted his Jewishness.
