Following the Gaza flotilla which has launched a wave of anti-Israel statements and actions, Egypt appears to be joining in, after a Cairo court on Saturday upheld a ruling to strip Egyptian me of their citizenship, targeting an estimated 30,000 men married to Israeli women.
Supreme Administrative Court Justice Mohammed al-Husseini will call on the nation’s cabinet to take the required action, striping the men and their children of Egyptian citizenship. This unique ruling is not subject to appeal, but it states that each case will be weighed individually.
Attorney Nabil al-Wahsh, who pushed the case, feels the move is essential towards preventing the rise of a generation that is not loyal to Egypt and the Arab world at large. He does not believe children of such mixed marriages should be permitted to honor of military service.
Apparently, following the 1990 Gulf War, thousands of Egyptian came to Israel seeking employment and many married Israeli women.
It appears the 1979 Camp David Peace Agreement between Israel and Egypt does not prevent Cairo from promoting this discriminatory policy against Israelis.
