Egypt condemns Israel’s Jewish nation-state law

Egypt condemns Israel’s Jewish nation-state law

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls its passage a "historic moment in the history of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel".

Palestinian writer and political analyst Abdel Majid Sweilam, for his part, described the law as "fascist" in nature, warning that it would "officially end the peace process".

Arab Israelis are joined by centrist and leftists alike in denouncing the law as racist and at odds with basic human rights standards. Not only is there "no right to equality" in the country, Israeli legislation "already privileges the protection of a "Jewish state" over equality for non-Jewish citizens".

The bill is the latest Israeli attempt to undermine the Palestinian identity and the Arab and Islamic heritage, especially the status of the city of Al Quds, which it seeks to make its eternal capital in violation of global resolutions that affirm that the city was a Palestinian one occupied in 1967.

And it says the government will encourage the creation of Jewish towns and communities. I called it "a source of inspiration to believe in ideals that transformed us from Jews to Israelis".

"The objective of this law is discrimination".

Farmers have mixed reactions to Trump's farm aid
"Either a country which has treated the United States unfairly on Trade negotiates a fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs", Mr. The Agriculture Department is announcing a $ 12 billion " short-term " plan to help USA farmers hurt by retaliatory tariffs.

He says "this clause is taken by the world to mean "Jewish-only neighborhoods and Arab minorities out".

"The Israelis want to destroy all the religions of the Arabs".

Opponents say the law will inevitably harm the fragile balance between the countrys Jewish majority and Arab minority, which makes up about 21 percent of a population of almost 9 million.

In addition, a Druze soldier said that the Nationality law harms Arab, Bedouin, Druze, Christian and Circassian soldiers, and that as a soldier it is hard to continue military service for Israel under such conditions.

Jewish Israeli peace activists also protested the bill by unfurling a large black flag in the Knesset.

"This is not a decision I expected from the Likud leadership", he said.

GST council meet: Sanitary napkins exempted from GST
This would mean there would be no input tax credit available, even though inputs in the production of sanitary napkins are taxed. The items which could be considered for cutting of tax rates might include sanitary napkins , handicrafts and handloom goods.

The law had drawn criticism by a wide range of NGOs and rights groups as a racist bill that would divide the society.

Netanyahu has defended the law.

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) agrees.

"An absolute majority wants to ensure our state's Jewish character for generations to come".

Jamal Zahalka, an Arab member of the Knesset who voted against the law, told Al Jazeera it establishes a new set of rules that will legitimise anti-Arab racism and increase the building of illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

"The commitment of the Palestinian leadership to the Palestinian and Arab choices and to our national principles will keep the hope of a nation that is still suffering and burning as a result of its lack of understanding and awareness of what has been planned for it for many years", he stated.
