NAZARETH, (PIC)– Al-Mizan center for human rights said there is a frenzied race between the Jewish Knesset members to devise racist and discriminatory laws against the Palestinian Arabs.
The center stated that the latest racist bill was introduced by MK Yariv Levin, head of the Likud- Yisrael Beiteinu government coalition, and MK Ayelet Shaked from the Jewish home party, and it seeks to determine the nature of the state of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people.
The bill, which is referred to as “the basic law proposal: Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people” has received the support of another 39 Knesset members who consist of both members of the coalition and the opposition alike. The bill is currently in early legislative stages and still has not passed a preliminary reading.
According to the new bill, Israel is considered the national and historical home for the Jewish people alone and its national identity is solely defined by the Jewish people.
Al-Mizan center added that more dangerous draft laws regarding the Jewish state would be submitted by other Jewish Knesset members in the coming days in the context of the hectic race in the Israeli political arena to enact racist laws against the Palestinian Arabs.
“The attempt to forge the history through the enactment of laws will not change the truth a bit, as the stones, the trees and the human beings will always bear witness to the identity of the rightful owners of this homeland,” the center underlined.
