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.

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.
