President Reuven Rivlin told Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs, of Staff on Wednesday that even though he was born in Jerusalem before the establishment of the State of Israel, he is an Israeli.

He was referring to the US Supreme Court decision this week in which American citizens born in Jerusalem cannot have the world Israel on their passports.
