I have to say in all fairness.........the Canadians are spineless. Completely without souls. But America? Et tu brute?
|Canadian Jews Have ´Israel´ Deleted From ´Jerusalem´ Passports ||Jewish World|
The government's move follows an application to Canada's Supreme Court by B’nai Brith of Canada against the government’s new policy regarding its passports and Jerusalem. Canada's new position is that "Israel" not be specificed as the country of birth for its citizens who were born in Jerusalem.

The court suit was filed on behalf of a 17-year-old Torontonian, who objected to the ban against noting Israel as his country of birth on his passport. The boy's lawyer argued that the new policy discriminated against his client, as many other citizens had received passports with such a classification.
The latest development is that scores of Canadian Jews have been told by Canadian Passport Office officials that they must surrender their passports showing "Jerusalem, Israel" as their birthplace.
In a similar move last September, a US court found that American consular offices need not register the birthplace of a Jerusalem-born American citizen as "Jerusalem, Israel," but merely as "Jerusalem."
