Yishai wants new Citizenship Law to revoke traitors' rights

The government's proposed loyalty oath amendment to the Citizenship Law is not strong enough, Interior Minister Eli Yishai  said at Sunday's cabinet meeting.
"I wish to propose a bill that would state that any person who cooperated with terrorists or betrayed the state, such as [MK] Haneen Zoabi who participated in the [Gaza] flotilla, will have their citizenship revoked and their status become that of a foreign worker," said Yishai.
He added, "Today we find ourselves in the situation where former Knesset member Bishara is currently [living] in Syria and receives a government pension. I propose that his status be that of a foreigner and that he not even receive a living stipend."
