Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People

law defining Israel as a nation-state

Basic Law proposal: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People is an Israeli bill which specifies the nature of the state of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people.


  • Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens, I repeat this is our state. The Jewish state. Lately, there are people who are trying to destabilize this and therefore destabilize the foundations of our existence and our rights, so today we have made a law in stone. This is our country. This is our language. This is our anthem and this is our flag. Long live the state of Israel.
  • The wording of the current bill and the way it was passed is harmful because it does not include the basic tenets and the basic components of the Jewish state as they have been defined over the past 70 years, a commitment to Israel as a Jewish and a democratic state, based on the values of the Declaration of independence, this commitment, this phrase does not appear in the legislation.
