Israel’s Interior Ministry refuses to grant services such as identity cards to Israeli citizens that it believes are not truly Jewish, according to a petition filed before Israel’s High Court of Justice. The petition was filed by a lawyer for an Ethiopian woman who says the ministry refused to give her an identity card and only extended her passport for one year, instead of the normal five years.
