Interior Minister Eli Yishai decided Tuesday to rescind the citizenship of four Israeli-Arabs involved in activities threatening state security. The four men had moved to countries defined by authorities as "enemy-states," where they participated in terror activities. The group is now asking to return to Israel. Yishai was responding to a request filed by head of the ministry's population registry, Yaakov Ganot, to examine the possibility of withdrawing their citizenship.
