The move comes weeks after Israel's interior minister, who oversees immigration policy, was quoted as saying that he would consider revoking residency rights of Omar Barghouti.In a possible first step, Barghouti said Tuesday that Israel told him last month that it was not renewing a permit that allows him to travel abroad. Barghouti, a Qatari-born Palestinian who is married to an Israeli woman, said he has lived legally in Israel since 1994 and never before had a problem renewing his travel permit. The Israeli Interior Ministry said Tuesday that there is evidence that Barghouti's "center of life" is in the West Bank, not Israel, and his residency is under review by the attorney general.
