Lately the Israeli Knesset (Parliment) and Government, dominated by the extreme right, have been passing new racist laws: A law that permits the imprisonment of any Israeli citizen who denies that Israel is a Jewish state. Another one sentencing people to three years of prison if they commemorate the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe) which is the independence Day for Israel. And another law requiring the potential citizens of Israel to decalte loyality and alliegence to Israel as a Jewish, Zionist and democratic state. Those law clearly target Arab citizens of Israel, they show the racist nature of the state and of the newly elected Knesset and the government.
I present here an Article Ury Avnery, called "Racist for Democracy". A great article depicting this tendency in Israel.
Avenery is an Israeli writer and peace activist with Gush Shalom.
