Many of those whose residency is in danger of being revoked are students, born and brought up in East Jerusalem, who have gone abroad for university. They end up facing the choice of coming back to East Jerusalem, often to unemployment, or not being able to live with their families again. This is just one of the many discriminatory practices those with a Jerusalem ID are subjected to - including prolonged searches and questioning at Ben Gurion, when they leave AND when they come back. As a Jewish immigrant, I am terribly ashamed of my country for doing this. We lost the Public Relations battle long ago and are now trampling on International Human Rights law as if it meant nothing to us. Enough is enough.
