London, MINA – The UK Foreign Ministry on Monday expressed concerns over the Israeli law of the Jewish “nation state” which was passed permanently by the Knesset last Thursday.
The controversial law declares that only Jews have the right of self-determination in the country, PIC reported.
The legislation stipulates that “Israel is the historic homeland of the Jewish people and they have an exclusive right to national self-determination in it”.
It also strips Arabic of its designation as an official language alongside Hebrew, downgrading it to a “special status” that enables its continued use within Israeli institutions.(R/R04/RS5)
