Israel's Knesset approved a law that would permit revoking citizenship rights of Israelis convicted of terrorism, espionage or treason. The law, which passed late Monday night by a vote of 37 to 11, is opposed by many Arab-Israeli groups and Israeli human rights groups on the grounds that it is designed to delegitimize Arab-Israeli citizens.
