Zionist Entity to demand Loyalty

The nuttiness of the new Zionist regime seems to know no bounds. After a proposal for a law that would make Naqba commemorating illegal, Lieberman and his fellow proto-fascists are now following up on an election pledge to seek cabinet okay for a loyalty oath:

Ha'aretz:
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's Yisrael Beiteinu party plans to propose controversial legislation requiring citizens to swear loyalty to the state, a party spokesman said on Monday.

The party intends to seek cabinet approval for the bill before presenting it to the Knesset where it would have to pass three votes and a committee review before taking effect, according to the spokesman.

The proposal was a key part of Yisrael Beiteinu's campaign in February's general election, in which it grew to Israel's third largest political party.

Party [Yisrael Beiteinu] spokesman Tal Nahum said the measure would require all Israelis to declare loyalty "to the state of Israel as a Jewish, Zionist and democratic state" before they can be issued a national identity document. The law requires all Israeli residents over 16 carry their identity cards at all times.

So you hate Israel so much now that you call it "the Zionist Entity"?

I, of course, oppose this legislation. I'd like to point out something very important, though. Yisrael Beitenu is the one demanding a loyalty oath at this point, not the state. The government hasn't endorsed it, and I doubt that it will. As much as the Labor Party is a pathetic lapdog that does almost anything Netanyahu says, they will not agree to this. If they do, the Labor Party would lose half their Knesset members who would form a new party.

I seriously doubt this will become law.

I agree it's unlikely it will be passed by the Knesset.

But the fact remains that Israeli Jewish politicians enjoy complete freedom to make this kind of threats against the Arab citizenry. And it doesn't cause an uproar.

The status of Arabs in Israel is increasingly looking like that of a protected minority that is allowed to reside in the country not because they were born there, but rather as some sort of concession, which can be suspended anytime, from the Jewish majority.

This kind of legislation does cause an uproar. The Israeli media has been full of voices criticizing all these anti-Arab and anti-democratic proposals.

Why, would you prefer 'Blight unto the Nations'?

It's sarcasm, Emm, hatred has nothing to do with it. Hate the sin, not the sinner.
