A drafted law proposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and submitted to the Knesset has angered Palestinians who represent 20% of the population.

The law stipulates that individuals seeking the Israeli nationality must take a loyalty oath acknowledging Israel as a Jewish state. According to the far-right wing in the governmental coalition the amendment is considered a victory.

Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman welcomed the resolution stressing that

"Everyone who wants to receive Israeli citizenship must swear loyalty to the state of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state”.


Political analysts believe Netanyahu’s step was initiated in order to seek Lieberman’s approval, rendering him neutral in case he has decided to extend the partial freeze of construction in the settlements.
