IsraHell Considers ‘Jewish Nation-State’ Law


New legislation to cement the definition of Israel as a state belonging exclusively to Jews around the world is a “declaration of war” on Palestinian citizens of Israel, the minority’s leaders warned this week. The bill, which defines Israel as the “national home of the Jewish people”, passed its first vote in the Israeli parliament, after it received unanimous backing from a government committee. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to get the measure on to the statute books within 60 days … The legislation affirms that world Jewry has a “unique” right to national self-determination in Israel … The Law of Return of 1950 allows only Jews to immigrate to Israel and receive citizenship.
