(0 votes)
In this short paper, Adalah draws attention to 10 new pieces of legislation – 5 newly-enacted laws and 5 currently-proposed bills – before the Israeli parliament, the Knesset. This new legislation contains discriminatory and/or anti-democratic provisions that are liable to severely harm the human rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel and Palestinians living in the 1967 Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), as well as those who defend their rights. The legislation is divided into two categories: (A) Legislation related to the latest, ongoing round of violence in Israel and the OPT that began in late September 2015; and (B) Legislation targeting human rights organizations and supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
