Israel culture minister seeks powers to punish violators of ‘Nakba Law’

Israel’s Culture Minister Miri Regev “plans to submit a kind of cultural loyalty bill in November that would allow her to cut state funding to cultural institutions which violate the so-called Nakba Law”, according to a report by Haaretz.

Regev made the “announcement at a Tel Aviv press conference yesterday called to unveil a reform of state funding for the film industry”, the paper added.

As explained by Haaretz, “the Nakba Law allows the Finance Ministry to cut state funding to any institution that publicly observes Israel’s Independence Day as a day of mourning, but doesn’t allow the Culture Ministry to do so.”
