Israel’s ‘racist’ Nation-State Law condemned in Westminster

Israel’s Jewish Nation-State Law was condemned as “racist” at a seminar held in the Palace of Westminster yesterday by EuroPal Forum whose chairman, Zaher Birawi, described the legislation as “racist”. The law was ratified by the Knesset in July last year.

Hosted by British Labour MP Andy Slaughter and chaired by journalist and researcher Nasim Ahmed, the seminar brought together individuals from the legal, diplomatic and public policy fields. The intention was to elucidate a more nuanced understanding of the Nation-State Law while also communicating the various steps that could be taken by the international community to challenge Israel’s violations of international law. The “Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People” has been criticised widely, described by Palestinians and members of the international community alike as both discriminatory and verging on apartheid.
