My dad received his U.S. passport in the mail, with place of birth stating “Israel”. He placed the passport back in the envelope, returned it to the passport agency with a sticky note saying: “I was born in the state of Palestine, the city of Jerusalem in 1941, there was no Israel then, the state of Israel occupied my home land in 1948. Kindly reinstate my correct identity.” 2 weeks later, passport corrected, Palestine reinstated, no questions asked.
