No doubt this bill needed alot of refinement and should have NEVER been passed as is. (Of course the Yellow bellied cowards of the Knesset don't have the spines to do what is right - so there is no surprise here.) In principle, however, the idea of this TYPE of bill is long overdue. Demanding that the members of a democratically elected government do nothing to harm the democratic status of a nation - is fair and necessary. Demanding that law makers NOT call on enemy states to destroy the people they represent - is also fair and necessary. Unfortunately, we have a Knesset filled with undereducated fools vying for position rather than for democracy. THIS is what will make the application of the current bill a disgrace.
