Source : In further Move to Far Right, Israel passes Draconian Terrorism Law (Informed comment)


 

« BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — A controversial new anti-terrorism law passed the Israeli Knesset on Wednesday, according to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, which will grant the Israeli state far-reaching powers in cases of suspected “terrorism,” in a move a member of the Joint List called “draconian and unacceptable.” »

« The law also includes a provision that gives the defense minister — currently ultraright Avigdor Lieberman — the power to confiscate property of alleged members of terrorist organizations without getting approval by Israeli courts, Haaretz reported. »

« The law’s passage comes just two days after the Knesset voted to renew an emergency provision to Israel’s Family Reunification Law, which prohibits Palestinians from the occupied West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip from automatically obtaining legal status in Israel or East Jerusalem through family unions. »

« Nearly all Palestinian political movements are considered “terrorist” organizations by the Israeli government. »
