30,000 Arabs to Lose Citizenship

Thirty-thousand Arab citizens of Egypt face losing their citizenship for having married women from a state officially at peace with Egypt -- Israel. The AFP reports:

A Cairo court on Saturday upheld a ruling to strip Egyptian men married to Israeli women of their citizenship in a case that has highlighted national sentiment towards Israel.

Judge Mohammed al-Husseini sitting on the Supreme Administrative Court said the interior ministry must ask cabinet to take the necessary steps to strip Egyptian men married to Israeli women, and their children, of their citizenship.

Given the massive media attention to questionable claims that tens of thousands of West Bank Palestinians faced expulsion by Israeli authorities, will the media likewise highlight the plight of tens of thousands of Egyptians set to lose their citizenship?

I try to stay well informed concerning Israel and the media. I admit that I do not trust American media when it come to Israel. Often I can read bias and bigotry between the lines. Hearing Helen Thomas' comments did not supprise me at all, she has a history of hate. It believe it would a benefit to her should she bother to get all of her historic facts clear and then make comments based of fact rather than long winded speaches based only on hate. I choose to listen to Israeli radio, read Israeli newpapers and listen to those who speak with the wisdom of true historic facts. I want peace in the middle east but I also believe that peace will never come. Israel has been chosen by God and as long as Israel exsists and Jerusalam remains undevided, there will be no peace. This is a sriritual battle. Remember that we(Israel)is the apple of Gods'eye. As soon as possible I plan on making Ayliah, Israel is my birthright, my God-given home. This is the land of the prophets and king David, of Solomon and the Temple, Its' also the place where Jesus (a Jew) walked, taught and died.Hate has no place here and I will protect that right for as long as I live. I owe that to the millions that died before me. It is my responsibility and my hope, Aza
