Begin proposes bare-bones ‘Jewish State bill’

The controversial “Jewish State bill” is back, in a new, concise version submitted by MK Bennie Begin (Likud) this week.

Begin’s proposed Basic Law states that “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish People, based on the foundations of liberty, justice and peace in light of the vision of the Prophets of Israel and upholds equal rights for all its citizens.”

In addition, the proposal says Israel is a democracy.
