United Jerusalem Bill Passes First Reading in Knesset

The ‘United Jerusalem’ law has passed its first reading in the Knesset.

If the bill passes two more readings in the Knesset plenum, a “super majority” of 80 lawmakers will be required in order for any part of the capital to be given up in any peace agreement.
