Lapid, Livni Oppose Israeli Law for Jews in Judea, SamariaA bill to apply Israeli law to citizens living in Judea and Samaria was approved by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation today (Sunday, Nov. 9).This makes no sense to me. Why do we need a new law? Or why is our legal status different from Israelis in Tel Aviv or Beersheva?
But Yesh Atid party chairman Yair Lapid and Hatnua party chairwoman Tzipi Livni – both members of the government cabinet – are opposing its final approval... (Jewish Press)

A large billboard in Israel’s largest Arab city, Nazareth, is using a play on words in Arabic between ISIS – “Daesh,” and running down with a vehicle – “daes,” to promote vehicular terror attacks against Israelis, Israel’s Walla News reported Sunday.

Prime Minister Netanyahu condemns recent riots nationwide, and considers taking a rare step by reinstating the law which revokes the citizenship of those undermining Israel's security by calling for its destruction."We will act against those calling to establish a Palestinian state", Netanyahu said yesterday. (Jerusalem online)I understand that he wants to use it against the Arab MK's and other prominent Israeli Arabs who speak out in favor of "Palestine" versus Israel. But I find it very easy to stretch its meaning to oppose those pushing for the Two State Solution and withdrawal to the very dangerous pre-June, 1967 borders.
Food for thought for sure. What do you think?
