#AceBreakingNews – ISRAEL – Nov.23 – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet on Sunday approved a controversial bill to enshrine into Israeli law the status of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
NETANYAHU’S CABINET APPROVE & ENSHRINE INTO LAW STATUS OF ISRAEL AS NATION-STATE OF JEWISH PEOPLE ‘
The bill that passed was a combination of two bills, one proposed by Knesset members Ayelet Shaked and Yariv Levin, and the other by MK Zeev Elkin. The bill, which includes tough wording that both Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Yesh Atid ministers oppose, will be incorporated into another version Netanyahu plans to present later this week.
Fourteen ministers supported the bills in Sunday’s vote and six opposed them (the five Yesh Atid ministers and Livni.)
The wording of the proposed law will be based on 14 principles that the prime minister formulated to enshrine Israel as the historic homeland of the Jewish people and determine that all of its citizens will have equal personal rights.
