📌 Denial of Citizenship for Terrorism Supporters: A Joint Announcement by the Justice and Interior Ministers
🚫 Tackling Support for Terrorism Justice Minister Yariv Levin and Interior Minister Moshe Arbel convened a meeting with professional officials to discuss the denial of citizenship and residency to individuals involved in or supporting terrorism.
🔍 Criteria for Denial The focus is on individuals who engage in terrorism, support it, incite it, or show sympathy towards any act of terrorism. Supporting Hamas probably means that you support terrorism and maybe later if you support the people of Palestine, Israel will see you as a terrorist.
⚖️ New Legislation in Light of War Given the current wartime situation, there's an immediate push for legislation that considers such actions during war as an aggravating circumstance. This would make it even more stringent to deny citizenship or residency to those found guilty. In reality they forbid "thinking differently", as Israeli citizen you support the government or you are done
🔔 Conclusion In the face of growing threats, Israel is taking draconian measures to ensure that those who support or engage in terrorism are not granted the privileges of citizenship or residency. But most of us think "they can stick that passport somewhere the sun ain't shining.."
