New law to revoke citizenship of Arab prisoners in Israel

A draft bill has been proposed in the Israeli parliament which, if passed into law, would see citizenship stripped from any Arab-Israeli prisoner who accepts a stipend from the Palestinian Authority. The PA pays such stipends to help prisoners’ families.

Knesset member Avi Dichter of the Likud and Orit Stook of the Religious Zionism party submitted the draft bill yesterday. The proposed legislation is aimed at any Palestinian or Arab Israeli citizen convicted of “terrorism” or “carrying out hostile acts”, reported Arab48.com, particularly Palestinian prisoners from occupied Jerusalem and Arab citizens of Israel itself.
