Israel legalizing apartheid through ‘Jewish Nation-State’ Law – PLO

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) strongly denounced on Thursday the Israeli parliament’s (the Knesset) adoption of the “Jewish Nation-State” law.

PLO’s Executive Committee Secretary Saeb Erekat said the law gives license to apartheid, discrimination, ethnic cleansing, and sectarianism at the expense of the Palestinian people.

Similar reactions came out from the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), the Palestinian Foreign Ministry and Al-Wifaq Al-Watani (National Accord) Society.

The top Palestinian bodies confirmed the US administration’s blind bias in favor of Israel and its total disdain for international law have emboldened Israel to persist with such unlawful and immoral policies.

Israel has passed a law that, for the first time, declares the country to be “the nation-state of the Jewish people”.

The legislation also downgrades the status of the Arabic language and encourages the development of Jewish settlement.
