  1. Well, this ‘broad, definition of who is Jewish will have some advantages. This generation may not practice the religion, but may be the next generation will practice it again. If a ‘non-practicing’ Muslim grows up mostly the next generation will be lost too. – I met a Jewish person who seem to be not practising (eating bacon for instance) but in his father’s office was a photo with him shaking hands with the of Israel.
