    Jewish identity already gets priority anyway. ONLY Jews are eligible to emigrate to Israel under the law of return. The state symbol, the flag, the national anthem, IDF symbols the only group any of them represent are Jews. The working week is based on the jewish callender. Israel is jewish name rather than a neutral one and the currency name its named after the currency used in ancient Judea its not something like the Israel Pound. ( Lira ) which is used to be. Schools teach the Tanach is religion lessons not the Koran or New Testament. The country is officially classed as a jewish state. How many businesses put up signs in arabic as well as hebrew and how many Israelis speak a word of arabic anyway? Israel is a democracy and all its citizens have equal rights but it is a democracy that favour Jews. As for this proposed bill that Yariv Lanin is putting forward its the content that matters not what it is supposed to do and if the content does not put religion above democracy but rather builds on the current system of democracy that favours Jews then maybe its acceptable maybe its not in the end its for the Knesset to decide not an individual MK
