Netanyahu: Israel Is 'National Homeland' to One People - the Jewish People

Prime minister says all citizens are treated equally, but Jews have natural right to nation-state; wording to be formulated in collaboration with all members of the coalition.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that while all Israeli citizens deserved equal rights, the state itself was the homeland of just the Jewish people and should be enshrined as such, elaborating on his proposal last week to enact legislation to define Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
