Birthright does not apply to Palestinians in JerusalemDaoud Kuttab - Arab Media Internet Network - Life has been difficult as a stateless person in Jerusalem for Mustafa Kharouf. He had the unfortunate case of being born to Jerusalem parents while they were in Algiers. His parents brought him back to Jerusalem but the Israelis for obvious racist reasons have refused to grant him residency in the only city he has lived in all his life. Ironically Jews around the world have a legal right not only to residency but also to citizenship in Israel simply because of what the government considers is their birthright because they belong to the Jewish faith.-rh 5/11/2019

Gazan cancer patients denied treatment at East Jerusalem hospital due to mounting PA debts Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) - At least 60 cancer patients from the Gaza Strip, who were referred to al-Mutala` Hospital in East Jerusalem, were surprised with the hospital’s refusal to admit them upon their arrival - due to the accumulating debts owed by the Palestinian Ministry of Health (MOH). PCHR warns of the serious impact of the ongoing crisis on the life of patients whose treatment is unavailable in the Gaza Strip. PCHR calls upon the Palestinian Ministries of Health and Finance to pay off immediately these accumulating debts, and calls upon the hospital administration to accept the patients referred to it - especially since, if they miss the treatment scheduled, they would be forced to go through a lengthy and complicated bureaucratic process to obtain a new medical referral and wait for exit permits to access West Bank hospitals, including in East Jerusalem.
