Bereaved families: Revoke terrorists' citizenship
Updated: Jul 21, 2022
Wednesday, February 9, 2022, 10:53 On Tuesday, February 8, a hearing was held at the Supreme Court regarding the decision by (now former) Interior Minister Aryeh Deri to revoke the citizenship of Israeli terrorists. Honenu Attorney Menashe Yado, representatives of the Choosing Life Forum, and bereaved families came to the hearing to voice the concerns of the victims.
They claimed that the terrorists should have their citizenship revoked and not be given any alternative status by the State of Israel, but rather by the Palestinian Authority, the same authority that pays them large sums every month and gives them benefits and bonuses as a reward for murdering or attempting to murder Jews and Israeli citizens in nationalistically or racially motivated attacks.
Yado, who represented the bereaved families, stated that while terror is increasing in power and widening in scope, for years the law enforcement system has been plodding along with powerless legal drivel that does not produce anything but rather enervates, chafes, and wears down the Israeli public.

Honenu Attorney Menashe Yado is representing the family of Hodaya Nechama Asoulin, Hy"d, who was seriously injured in a 2011 terror attack at a bus stop outside of the ICC building in Jerusalem and remained comatose until succumbing to her injuries six years later, and the parents of Tal Karmen, Assaf Tzur and Yuval Mendalovitch, Hy”d, who were murdered in a terror attack on the no. 37 bus line in Haifa in 2003. The terrorists who carried out the attacks have Israeli residency, which the families asked to have revoked in February 2021. The families of the victims asked to be present at the hearing as friends of the court.
