Knesset passes law to strip terrorists of Israeli citizenship
The Knesset plenum on Monday gave its final seal of approval to a law that would enable Israel's
Supreme Court to revoke the citizenship of anyone convicted of espionage, treason or aiding the enemy during war.
"Anyone who betrays the state and carries out acts of terror must know – citizenship and loyalty go together," said Yisrael Beiteinu MK David Rotem, who initiated the bill, which passed in its second and third reading. "There is no citizenship without loyalty."
