Mother And Father Of Jews
MP Meyer Habib blasts as unconstitutional, the far-right politician's proposal to ban dual-citizenship - including French-Israeli.
A French Jewish MP on Sunday reminded presidential candidate Marine Le Pen of “Europe’s unremitting debt to the Jewish people” after the far-right politician raised objections to dual-citizenship, which, if enforced, would require French Israelis to choose between the two countries.
“You can’t ask Jews to choose between their mother (Europe? Israel?) and father (Israel? Europe?),” Meyer Habib, who represents expats in Israel and other Mediterranean countries, told The Jerusalem Post while slamming the proposal as unconstitutional.
Some 150,000 French Jews are thought to live in Israel.
