Israeli Citizenship

Arsonists Hit Jewish
Grocery Near Paris

Jerusalem/JTA — Israel granted citi-
zenship to a foreign player on the
Maccabi Petach Tikva soccer
team, clearing the way for him to play
on Israel's national team.
The move could lead the way for
Morad Megamedov's participation in

Religious Party said he would bring
the matter before the government
because he did not think citizenship
decisions should be left to the discre-
tion of the interior minister.

Shuchatowitz of Baltimore, an author-
ity on Jewish law and the father of
deaf children, the guide argues that

Ailing Palestinian
