Patriarchate decries Israel’s new nation-state law

JERUSALEM (CNS): “It is beyond conception that a law with constitutional effect ignores an entire segment of the population, as if its members never existed,” said a July 30 statement from the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem which strongly criticised Israel’s recently adopted Nation State Law.
 
The law, which defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, was passed by the 120-seat Knesset (parliament) early on July 19, receiving 62 votes.
