Article full text: 
The supreme Administrative Court has issued a final ruling to strip Egyptian men married to Israeli women, and their children, of Egyptian citizenship. The court said the Cabinet must take the necessary steps to implement the ruling, while considering each case individually, and that the ruling does not apply to Egyptian men married to Arab Israeli women. The judge claimed the ruling took into account the national security of Egypt, to prevent the creation of a generation that would be disloyal to Egypt and the Arab World, and that children of such marriages should not be allowed to perform Egyptian military service. The number of Egyptian men married to Israeli women is thought to be around 30.000, with only 10 per cent of them married to Arab Israeli women.
