From Reuters:
"East Jerusalem Arabs have the rights of Israeli citizens except three: they cannot vote in general elections; cannot hold Israeli passports -- many have Jordanian ones because the area was controlled by Jordan until 1967 -- and they lose their residency papers if they move out of East Jerusalem. "

Isn't this interesting?

Imagine if there was a law in the US that if black americans moved out of the inner cities and into the "burbs", that they would not be able to vote, and would lose their US citizenship?
