Israeli Author Allowed Israeli ID With No Religion Listed
An 81-year old Israeli intellectual has been allowed by an Israeli court to register a new identity card that does not list a religion – an anomaly in Israel, where all citizens are categorized on Israeli-issued ID cards by their religion. Israeli passports list the nationality of each citizen as either ‘Jewish’ or ‘Arab’.
Yorum Kaniuk is a well-known Israeli author who has written a number of books, including one about the Israeli war of independence, known to indigenous Palestinians as the ‘Nakba’ or ‘Catastrophe’, entitled ‘1948’.
