    "Everyone has the right to a nationality." - Article 15, Universal Declaration of Human Rights// According to this, Revocation is only possible if the the person has another nationality (as the Europeans do), or has obtained Israeli citizenship fraudulently. A spy, terrorist, etc, is a criminal who is put on trial and then sent to prison. Israeli Arab citizens, who lived on the land even before the Jews showed up, have a right to citizenship, and this is not a favor. I can see that this new right-wing idea is going to put Israel to shame yet again. The Bishara law, stripping him of his PENSION, also seems irrational and discriminatory. Katzav, the rapist, holds on to his pension, but Bishara who remains unconvicted, loses his pension. Pension is due to a person for his PAST work, and should not be taken away. I can see a law that says: Until the escapee comes back to face the investigation, the state holds on to his pension. But revoking it seems like a robbery.
