Arab League denounces Knesset’s “Jewish Nation-State” law

The Arab League condemned on Thursday the Israeli parliament’s (the Knesset) adoption of the “Jewish Nation-State” law.

Such a racist law and all legislations imposed by the Israeli authorities are worthless, unacceptable, and illegitimate, League said in a statement.

Approving the law is an addition to Israel’s denial of the rights of Palestinian people to live in their “historic” land, and also an extension of Israelis’ occupation abuses and racist actions, it added.

The Jewish Nation-State law states Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people, Hebrew is the country’s official language, and that Jewish settlement development is a national value to the country and will act to encourage and promote its establishment and consolidation, said the statement.

The law is a new Israeli step to annex the West Bank and give license to apartheid, discrimination, ethnic cleansing, and sectarianism at the expense of the Palestinian people, it noted.

The international community should bear its responsibilities in pressuring Israel through lifting its immunity, forcing it to implement the international legitimacy resolutions, and holding it accountable for its continued systematic violations of international laws, the League stressed.

The right-wing Israeli government has unveiled, through the Nation-State law, its real racist face and sheer irresponsibility towards all humanitarian and democratic standards, laws and values, it said.
