Human Rights Equated With National Suicide

The Israeli government has repeatedly demanded that Palestinians recognise Israel as a “Jewish state”. Recent developments in the Knesset and High Court are exposing exactly what this means, and in doing so, throw the spotlight on the issue that the ‘peace process’ – and Western governments – refuse to tackle.

On Wednesday, Israel’s High Court rejected a legal challenge to the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law, by a six to five vote. The law, first passed as a ‘temporary’ measure in 2003 and renewed ever since, prevents Palestinians from the Occupied Territories (and those from ‘enemy states’) from living with their spouses in Israel.

For thousands of Palestinian families, Israel’s law means a choice between moving abroad, living apart, or living in Israel illegally. No wonder that the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) condemned what it described as a “racist law” for the way it harms “the very texture of the lives of families whose only sin is the Palestinian blood that runs in their veins”…

      More like a huge lack of perspective for the future. Actions like these never last, just bring suffering.

      Not ironic at all.  Jews engaged in genocide and ethnic cleansings thousands of years before Germany existed – and they’re so proud of it that it’s in Torah.  See Deuteronomy 7:1-5.

    We do not tolerate racsism here. So how can we support a country that is racsist to the nth degree. It’s time to let Israel go. They have become the haters.

    As Israel becomes more isolated by it’s blatant racism watch that racism publicly spread to include the exclusion of all other religions, especially Christians who the fundamentalists Jews will see as the greatest threat.

    The separation of religion and state should be a fundamental qualification for being a nation recognized by the UN.
