"An Israeli writer has won a historic court victory granting his request to be officially registered as 'without religion' rather than 'Jewish,' Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on Sunday. Yoram Kaniuk turned to the courts in May after the interior ministry refused to alter his official religious status from Jewish to 'without religion,' Haaretz said." (10/02/11)
