"Papal" Rabbanut questions another Ortho conversion

The validity of yet another Orthodox conversion done decades ago in the U.S. has been questioned by the Israeli Chief Rabbinate/Rabbanut.  I've been writing about the "conversion crisis" for years.  Just how many times am I going to have to say "been there, blogged that?  I agree with those who've said that the real question is not "Who is a Jew?, but rather, "Who is a rabbi?".  And I will continue to assert that this crisis is a sign of the evolution of the Israeli Chief Rabbinate into a new "papacy."  If you don't have time to check all the links, I recommend that you click on just the first and last ones--they're depressing enough all by themselves.  :(
