The Jewish Home and Likud-Beitenu parties have committed in their coalition agreement to promote a basic law which would see Israel’s democratic character subservient to its Jewish character. According to the proposed bill, the state will invest resources in promoting the Jewish settlement within its borders but will not commit to build for other nationalities. The law, which was submitted in the past by MK Avi Dichter, is based on wording formulated by the Institute for Zionist Strategy. (Haaretz)

Member of Knesset Avi Dichter (“Kadima”) initiated a Basic Law, which defines the State of Israel as the State of the Jewish people. According to the law, Hebrew will be the country’s sole official language. The law also states that the State can establish ethnic communities divided by religion or nationality, such as Jewish, Muslim or Christian communities.
