Israel adopts controversial Jewish nation-state law

Israel adopts controversial Jewish nation-state lawIsrael’s parliament on Thursday adopted a law defining the country as the nation state of the Jewish people, provoking fears it could lead to blatant discrimination against Arab citizens. Others said it neglects to specify equality and Israel’s democratic character, implying that the country’s Jewish nature comes first. The legislation, adopted by 62 votes to 55, makes Hebrew the country’s national language and defines the establishment of Jewish communities as being in the national interest.

Israel adopts divisive Jewish nation-state law

Israel adopts divisive Jewish nation-state lawBy Maayan Lubell JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel passed a “nation-state” law on Thursday declaring that only Jews have the right of self-determination in the country, stirring anger from members of the Arab minority who said it was racist and drawing an expression of concern from the EU. The bill, backed by the right-wing government, passed through parliament after months of political argument and some Arab lawmakers shouted and ripped up their papers after the vote. “This is a defining moment in the annals of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Knesset.
