Israel's New Far-Right Government to Lift Ban on Parliamentary Candidates Inciting Racism

Jewish Shame

The agreement establishing the most right-wing government in Israel’s history contains a provision lifting a ban on parliamentary candidates who incite racism—an offense for which the incoming national security minister was once convicted, Israeli media reported Thursday.

The right-wing Likud party—led by Benjamin Netanyahu, who is set to serve a historic sixth term as Israeli prime minister—and far-right Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) agreed Wednesday to revoke Clause 7A of the Basic Law on the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.
