Move to give Jews special status sparks controversy

Dr Victor Kattan, Senior Research Fellow at the Middle East Institute of NUS opined that Israel’s controversial Nation State Law is going to make it harder for Israel to weather criticism that it is replicating South Africa’s once notorious apartheid system. He added that it is one thing to enshrine a discriminatory legal system that covertly annexes the West Bank in obscure military orders; it is another to enshrine the system in a Basic Law for the whole world to see.
