Egyptian court: Men married to Israeli women can be stripped of citizenship

A court in Cairo has upheld a ruling urging the government to consider stripping Egyptian men who are married to Israeli women of their citizenship.

The ruling requires officials to send all such cases to the cabinet, to be decided on an individual basis.

The interior ministry had appealed against the original ruling, made by a lower court last year.

If those men don't get Israeli citizenship (which I doubt they do) that probably breaks international law, since Egypt would be making them stateless.
