Court upholds Israel as a Jewish state

Court upholds Israel as a Jewish stateIn an unusually sane decision, the High Court rejected a claim against the citizenship law by ultra-left MK Gal-On. The citizenship law bars naturalization for the Palestinian spouses of Israeli Arabs. Such naturalization would immediately add two hundred thousand Palestinians to the Israeli population and open the door to many more of them.

The court said correctly that the right to marital life does not have to be realized within the borders of Israel, and the Palestinians can live just as happily in their own state ten miles away.

The Chief Judge was among the dissenters.
