Is Jerusalem In Israel? Passport Case Still In US Court
The United States Supreme Court decided Monday that the Zivotofsky versus Clinton case will be tried in a lower court that previously dismissed the case according to the Cleveland Jewish News. Ari Zivotofsky and his family left Cleveland, Ohio to become Israeli citizens. Their Israeli born son, like all Americans born in Jerusalem, does not have a country listed on his passports. His passport simply states his place of birth as being "Jerusalem". The Zivotofsky family has sued the United States State Department headed by Hilary Clinton over the issue.
