Taysir Khaled: Israel redefines itself as a state of racial discrimination
May 14, 2017

Taysir Khaled, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and, a member of the Political Bureau of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), described the ratification of the Ministerial Committee of Legislation in Israel, on the so-called "Nationalism Law" that was initiated by Avi Dichter, Member of Knesset from Likud party, to Knesset To vote on, by preliminary reading of the racist law ,and by the legislation that Israel redefines itself as a state of racial discrimination through it. Especially that the bill states that "the State of Israel is the national home of Jewish people" and that "the right of self-determination in the State of Israel is limited to Jewish people", which will deprive the people of Palestine from their collective national rights and their right of self-determination, as an integral part of the Palestinian people.

Taysir added that the racism of this law , is also reflected in the fact that it considers "the language of State is Hebrew " and through the change of the status of Arabic language from an official language to a language with a special status in the State, just as the Russian language, that is used by Russian immigrants in Israel, as if Palestinians are just immigrants and not the indigenous population of State , generation after generation before and after the establishment of the State of Israel.

Khaled also said that "the new bill, which is added to a series of racist laws, which the Netanyahu government has legislated through Knesset in recent years, with its goals and objectives, goes beyond to devote Israel as an apartheid and racial discrimination state, in an attempt to push the Palestinian side toward the recognition of Israel as a state of Jewish people, as a precondition for the return to negotiating table, in an attempt in advance to resolve the outcome of negotiations, in a number of final settlement negotiations files.

He stressed that this is a part of political maneuvers and tricks, which Netanyahu and a considerable number of leading figures are going through and that the response to such maneuvers, must be clear by refusing to enter Netanyahu's maze and his preconditions to return to negotiations, and that any negotiations must be based on clear bases, in which Israel commits to discontinue all its settling plans without obstacles or conditions, In accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 2334, and to respect all the resolutions of international legitimacy related to the Palestinian Cause and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, as a sole basis for that, will provide security and stability for all peoples and countries in the region, including the State of Palestine, on the borders before June 4th, 1967, and the city of East Jerusalem as its capital, this comprehensive balanced political settlement should also safeguard the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes which they have been displaced from by brutal military force.
