(The law targets all persons, organizations and centers that take part in any International framework or global public circle that opposes Israeli Policies)

 

Proposer of Bill: Anat Berko (Likud) and others

Bill no. 4774/20/F

KM Anat Berko from the Likud Party, with 13 KMs from the alliance blocs, proposed a bill that would imprison any organization, center, or person who harms the status and interests of Israel in the world for 7 years, and 10 if done deliberately.

 

 

The interpretation of the law confirms that it targets all law and peace centers and organizations, in addition to political figures that move against the Israeli racist policies, and policies of war and occupation.

Proposers
In addition to KM Anat Berko, KM David Bitan, Micki Zohar, Oren Hazan, Nurit Koren, David Amsalem and Youaf Kisch (Likud) propsed the law. Also Tali Ploskov, Yifat Sasha-Biton (Kulanu), Yoav Ben Tzur, Yakov Margi (Shas), and Menachem Moses, Israel Eichler (United Torah Judaism) and Mordhay Yogev (The Jewish Home).

Chances of Legislation
This bill came against the backdrop of the work of Israeli and Palestinian Centers, working in Israel, on the international level against racist Israeli policies and the crimes of occupation. It was introduced after a delegation of Four Knesset members, from the Joint List, visited the European Parliament in November 2017 to talk about the racist Nationality Law, and a series of other racist laws.

Given the racist atmosphere in the Knesset, there is a chance that the bill will be passed.
