    "250,000 arab residents of east jerusalem have the same legal status as people who immigrated to israel legally but are not entitled to citizenship under the law of return." the arab residents had been offered citizenship but such was refused. the law of return is not the only avenue for acquiring israeli citizenship. people who are residents, as opposed to citizens, do not have the same rights as citizens once they leave the country for an extended period of time. this is a universally accepted practice. according to the interior ministry, "thousands of people listed as east jerusalem residents...were no longer living in israel, and were therefore stripped of their residency. most of those who lost their residency for this reason did not just move from jerusalem to the west bank, but were actually living in other countries." by definition, if a person decides to reside in another country, that person loses residency in the previous country.
