    New government to promote Jewish Nation Bill  

    By Ted Belman

      “The law changes the balance between Israel’s “democratic” and “Jewish” nature, and makes it clear that of the two principles, the definition of the state’s Jewish nature is the more important one.

    This is very important. Now when the SC of Israel has to decide on an issue it stresses equality in its decision.

    Haaretz

    The Likud and Habayit Hayehudi parties agreed in their coalition agreement to advance a controversial Basic Law subverting Israel’s democratic identity to its identity as the state of the Jewish people.

    Tribunal Calls on ICC to Probe Israel’s ‘Crimes’ in ‘Palestine’  

    Foreign Ministry dismisses the call.

    By Elad Benari, INN

    A tribunal has called on the International Criminal Court to investigate so-called “crimes” allegedly committed by Israel in “Palestinian territories”, AFP reported.

    The Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RToP) made the call on Sunday as it wrapped up four years of investigation, according to the report.

    Meeting in Brussels, the people’s tribunal, which has no legal status, said it would “support all initiatives from civil society and international organizations aimed at bringing Israel in front of the International Criminal Court.”

    The tribunal also called on the ICC to recognize “Palestinian jurisdiction” and for an extraordinary session of the United Nations Special Committee against Apartheid, set up for South Africa, to this time examine the Israeli case.
