Nationality regulations of Israeli citizenship causing legal statelessness for non-Jewish children, especially Palestinian Israelis, is the main focus of this chapter. The conflict of nationality laws analyzed through international legal norms has become the main reason for involuntary loss of citizenship for the Palestinian minority. The effect of the parents’ legal status on Palestinian children’s citizenship is explored. The chapter discusses national security concerns used to pass the Citizenship and Entry into Israel law that hampers the children’s right to a family unity. It also examines the impact of frequent amendments in Israel’s laws, including the Temporary Order and the Law of Return, on Palestinian minority citizenship rights.

Keywords:   legal statelessness, Palestinian Israelis, nationality laws, national security, family unity, Temporary Order, Law of Return
