(Worthy News) - Two members of Israel’s Bedouin minority community, who served as officers in the IDF, filed a High Court of Justice petition Sunday against the controversial Jewish nation-state law.
In their petition, Hasan Heeb and Yaqob abu al Elkien demanded that the law be abolished or changed to make it apply equally to all Israeli citizens.
The petition comes amid widespread outrage among the Druze community against the law. Members of the Druze community — including three Druze members of Knesset — have already filed High Court petitions against the law and some 50-100,000 people attended a protest Saturday in Tel Aviv.
