Haaretz – ‘Racist legislation’

leave a comment »

Given its clear disproportionate impact on Arabs, and my general support for immigration, particularly to unite families, I agree with this article from Haaretz – ‘Racist legislation’: “Since it was passed, Israeli citizens could marry any non-Jew in the world and live with them in Israel, but if they married Arabs ‘from the region,’ they could not live as a family in Israel.”

The unfortunate news is the support from Shinui. It would be nice to know if Shinui’s position was more political or principle.
