Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Jun/Jul2013, Vol. 32 Issue 5, p17
The authors discuss the citizenship issue among Palestinians who are Israeli citizens and living in foreign countries. They claim that under Israeli law, citizenship can only be passed down for one generation of children born outside of Israel. They cite that the law is seen as a move by Israel to limit the number of Palestinians who can claim Israeli citizenship.
