An Australian named Eberhard Frank whose parents were German immigrants to Palestine was born in Jaffa, Palestine in 1940 & always put that as his country of birth when he renewed his Australian passport. Last year when he did, the Australian government removed Palestine & replaced it with “unspecified” country of birth. He attempted to sue because he considered it an indignity & discrimination (it’s actually collusion with Israel to eradicate the history & people of Palestine) but through mediation, the government changed his country of birth to “Jaffa, British mandated Palestine,” as though it weren’t a real country.
