Think of your own wife, perhaps born in a foreign country or simply of a certain heritage. Now imagine the heartbreak when your government strips you of your citizenship simply because you fell in love with her and got married. Not only that, they strip your children of their citizenship as well! What happens to your family? This is the price being paid by couples in Egypt. Maybe such an abomination will never happen in America, but with a President like Obama in charge, who cavorts with Hamas sympathizers, and with an anti-Israel media, who knows what kind of racist ideas are dancing through their minds.
