Israel: Palestinian-Israeli Jerusalemite gay couple in danger of arrest and deportation
Source:Jerusalem Open House
The Jerusalem Open House is appealing for the urgent assistance of international human rights organizations in the case of a gay Jerusalemite couple in danger of being permanently torn from each other in view of the escalating situation in the region.
The two, an Israeli and a Palestinian, have been living together in Jerusalem since 1999. Legally, the couple fits the de-facto definition of domestic partners, as Israeli gay couples cannot marry or even register as couples in any official way. The Jerusalem Open House requests that you send letters to support their case by Tuesday 26th February 2002.
