Swearing an oath to a Jewish state will decide its fate.

Remember this day. It's the day Israel changes its character. As a result, it can also change its name to the Jewish Republic of Israel, like the Islamic Republic of Iran. Granted, the loyalty oath bill that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking to have passed purportedly only deals with new citizens who are not Jewish, but it affects the fate of all of us.

Fromnow on, we will be living in a new, officially approved, ethnocratic, theocratic, nationalistic and racist country. Anyone who thinks it doesn't affect him is mistaken. There is a silent majority that is accepting this with worrying apathy, as if to say: "I don't care what country I live in." Also anyone who thinks the world will continue to relate to Israel as a democracy after this law doesn't understand what it is about. It's another step that seriously harms Israel's image.

That your comment on this subject on Fred's blog entitled "The theiving Jews" were removed. Suddenly two of Fred's blogs entitled "Death to Wahhabis" and The thieving Jews" vanished! I am intrigued to know the reason for this. Could it be that when an argument is lost in readers favour, the author or the moderator see it fit to remove the blog in its entirety?  I hope I am wrong but I have began to doubt the IC’s journalistic integrity.


Thank you for highlighting this important piece of news.

From now on I will be using the full title of "Jewish Republic of Israel" whenever I am provoked to post a comment in response to those hypocrites who unconditionally support the JRS.


Good report

Just part of evolution of a racist policy, this is only polishing the racist nature of Israel.
