Such a plain shame that the Egypt government would treat their own citizens like this. This type of law is just as much a civil rights violation as the Gaza blockade.An Egyptian appeals court on Saturday upheld a ruling that orders the country's Interior Ministry to strip the citizenship from Egyptians married to Israeli women.
The case underlines the deep animosity many Egyptians still hold toward Israelis, despite a peace treaty signed between the two countries 31 years ago.
We can't help who we humans fall in love with, so why punish the people that fell in love with someone from Israel?
