This law would allow for discrimination against one's fellow countrymen. Irrespective of the ethnic, religious or racial background of its supporters, it stinks and, given the historical issues at play with respect to Israel and the Jewish people, it’s particularly disturbing. Given the current political climate with respect to the peace process, I think it’s particularly perplexing that the Likud led government should countenance supporting such moves. It goes to show how much is shared by extremists on both sides. Ideology blinds them to everything – from seeking practical solutions to problems to the more important matters of justice and fairness in the outcomes being sought.
