A Canadian teenager who was born in Israel to Canadian parents who then returned to Canada, is suing the Canadian government for refusing to put the country of his birth on his passport. He was born in Jerusalem and Canadian authorities are only willing to place the name of his birth city but without his birth country until a general settlement in the Arab-Israeli conflict is achieved.
Let’s see: Jerusalem was under Ottoman control, then under British Mandatory control, then under Jordanian control (annexation unrecognized internationally) in the East part and under Israeli control in the West part. Finally, the East part came into Israeli hands but internationally, Israel’s annexation of Jerusalem is also unrecognized. So theoretically, our young man was born in Jerusalem, Turkey.
