Israel must safeguard a Jewish majority even at the expense of human rights, the country’s justice minister has said in a speech defending a bill that would legally define Israel as the “national home of the Jewish people” for the first time.

Ayelet Shaked said on Monday that Israel must maintain both a Jewish majority and democracy, but stressed that keeping the state’s Jewish character may come “at the price” of human rights violations.

“There is place to maintain a Jewish majority even at the price of violation of rights,” Shaked told a conference in Tel Aviv on Monday, Israeli media reported.

In her speech, Shaked, a member of the far-right Jewish Home party, defended the so-called Jewish Nation-State Bill, which would constitutionally define Israel as the national home of the Jewish people for the first time.

“There are places where the character of the State of Israel as a Jewish state must be maintained, and this sometimes comes at the expense of equality,” Shaked said, as reported by Israel’s Haaretz newspaper.

Shaked said Israel must administer equal civil, but not national, rights.

“Israel is a Jewish state. It isn’t a state of all its nations. That is, equal rights to all citizens but not equal national rights,” she said.

  1. I support Human Right. Why?
    Human Right is God’s law who create This world and human. He knows better how His people can live in peace, happiness and prosperity.

    I know what Jews as minority surrounded by msjoriyy Arab nations. In few years majority Arab will dominate Jews population in Israel and then Arab extremist Muslim will expel Jews from their land AGAIN as IDOL Muslim Bukhari commanded to do so. ( sunnah) .

    To protect Jews from their land there is no other option except reject Arab Muslim’s right to join Government, Army and police etc. Most Arab nations do the same. Arab nations REJECT Jew and Christian’ s RIGHT.

    So as long as Arab nations do not obey Human Right, Israel will do the same to protect their minority right.

    What do think Rafiq?
