(A bill providing for more reasons that “allow” the Israeli Interior Minister to revoke the “residency” permits of residents of occupied Jerusalem and Golan. Amongst the “reasons” is obtaining citizenships of other countries including Gaza Strip).

Bill Proposed by: Amir Ohana and others
Bill No. 4744/20/F

 (A bill aggravates sentences against anyone who criticises the Israeli occupying army as a whole, not just a soldier. From an Israeli perspective, this tarnishes the army’s reputation. According to the bill, a person or organisation will be charged with “libel and defamation”. Clearly, the bill targets Israeli and other human rights organisations, which publish reports on crimes.)

Initiator: Yoav Kish and others
Bill No. 4766/20/F

The Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies (MADAR) is an independent research centre specialising in Israeli affairs, based in Ramallah, Palestine. MADAR was established in 2000 by a group of Palestinian intellectuals and academics, including the late poet Mahmoud Darwish, Dr. Lily Feidy, Dr. Ali Jarbawi, Dr. Ahmad Harb, Mr. Walid Al-Ahmad and Mr. Akram Haniyyeh. The centre was registered as a not-for-profit organisation with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior, and obtained a research centre’s operational licensing from the Palestinian Ministry of Information.
