An Egyptian court upheld a ruling which stripped Egyptian men who marry an Israeli woman of their citizenship Judge Mohammed Al-Husseini of the Supreme Administrative Court said the Interior Ministry must take necessary steps to strip any Egyptian man of his citizenship if he married an Israeli woman. The ruling is in accord with a desire to prevent the creation of a generation “disloyal to Egypt and the Arab world” and that no Egyptian male in such a marriage should be allowed to serve in the military. It is estimated about 30,000 Egyptian men are in such marriages and only about 10% are with an Israeli Arab woman. The idiots who made this ruling argue it is necessary “for the protection of Egypt and Egypt’s youth and its national security.”
This ruling is indicative of why peace in the Middle East is so difficult to achieve. a rational person would welcome such marriages because they bring together people of different societies, cultures and religion. These marriages bond people, and to the fools who run Egypt anything that creates a sense of community is a danger to their community. When will Arabs enter the 21st century instead of living in a medieval mind set?
