Israeli of Iraqi origin votes in Amman

The report in the Jerusalem Post that Israelis of Iraqi origin had missed their chance to vote in Amman (the nearest polling station to Israel) had it wrong.

One Israeli did cast his vote in last week's Iraqi elections - Jackie Hoogie - the Arab Affairs correspondent of Maariv. And he brought his grandfather's passport along to prove his Iraqi origins. (With thanks: iraqijews,. Via 'Iraqi vote').
