(Worthy News) – Israel’s parliament held its final session before breaking for recess on Thursday, passing the controversial Citizenship Law, effectively banning Palestinians married to Israeli citizens from gaining citizenship or residency inside the country.

After a nine-month battle, the bill passed with 45 votes in favor and 15 against. Both the United Arab List (Ra’am) and Meretz parties opposed the law. However, the right-wing parties making up the opposition voted in favor of the bill, allowing it to pass.

The Citizenship Law was passed in 2003, during the Second Intifada, and was renewed annually until last July, when the coalition failed to gather the votes to pass it. [ Source: Algemeiner (Read More…) ]
