Knesset considering new anti-Palestinian bill

The Knesset is set to vote on a racist bill denying Palestinians who marry Israeli citizens Israeli citizenship or permanent residency status. HRW comments on the bill, which is being rushed through the Knesset.

It should be stressed that this bill is aimed solely at Palestinians on the basis of race/ethnicity. There are no similar laws relating to, for example, Russian immigration, as Meron Benvenisti points out, even though some of these immigrants are now involved in anti-Semitic (and anti-Arab) neo-Nazi activity.
