Some unnamed person at Haaretz writes: "The Law of Return, although intended for Jews, does not discriminate among the state's citizens. It is intended for those who are not citizens." Given that the law is specifically aimed at non-citizens and offer them a chance to become citizens it is not exactly surprising that it does not "discriminate among the state's citizens". However, this does not stop the law from being discriminatory. The attempt to exempt the law of return with a nonsensical argument about non-discrimination of citizens that aren't even affected by the law stands out like a sore thumb in this piece. The writer of this op-ed is just too cowardly to fully stand up against discrimination and instead chose a middle ground that would be seen as less radical (in Israel).
