Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens, I repeat this is our state, The Jewish state.”
“Lately, there are people who are trying to destabilize this and therefore destabilize the foundations of our existence and our rights, “So today we have made a law in stone. This is our country. This is our language. This is our anthem and this is our flag. Long live the state of Israel.” he added.
The legislation also addresses Jerusalem’s status, declaring that “Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel.”
Israel’s 1948 declaration of independence defined its nature as a Jewish and democratic state, a delicate balance the country has grappled to maintain for 70 years.
