Arselifters angry over Spanish citizenship for Sephardic Juice

The Spanish government has announced that it will grant automatic citizenship to Juice of Sephardic descent, whose ancestors were expelled from Spain in 1492. The measure has been welcomed by Jewish groups, who say the move is long overdue and that it rights a historic wrong
Sephardic Juice, estimated at about 3 million worldwide, will have only to present a certificate confirming their ancestry to get a passport. Most live in Israel, the US or Europe
But arselifter groups are now demanding that the Spanish government grant instant citizenship to the millions of descendants of arselifters who were also expelled from Spain. Most live in north Africa
