Citizen (vs. resident)
In colloquial use, citizen and resident can be use synonymously. However, REVEAL strives to differentiate between them where such a distinction carries substantial meaning. A citizen, in such a precise interpretation, is a person who has the citizenship of a specific country whereas a resident is any person (regardless of citizenship) who resides in a certain area. This can be particularly important in the case of Jerusalem where semantic clarity is required to differentiate between religious, administrative, ethnic, linguistic and other categories of people.
