Turkish vice president blasts new Israeli law

EU expresses concern over Israel's Jewish nation-state law

Israel passed the "nation-state" law earlier on Thursday after months of political argument.

Arab MPs ripped up their papers in protest. The EU considers this law to be a major roadblock in the path of a "two-state solution".

Shawamreh's neighbor Zeinat Abu Rumeileh, 62, cried as she sat beside the other demolished home, in a tent that she said had been provided by the Palestinian Authority. The head of Israeli Joint List groups of parties Ayman Odeh denounced it as "the death of [our] democracy".

"We are concerned, we have expressed this concern and we will continue to engage with Israeli authorities in this context", a spokeswoman for European Union foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini told a news briefing.

The law was passed after a rather uncanny prelude.

He warned against the catastrophic repercussions of the new law, which lays the foundation for further racist policies, violates basic principles of the global laws, human rights and endangers worldwide peace and security.

Eugene Kontorovich, worldwide law director at the Kohelet Policy Forum, a conservative Jerusalem think tank, defended the bill, arguing it "is similar to provisions in many Western democratic constitutions, which provide for an official language and national character that reflects the majority of the population".

But American Jewish organisations expressed their disapproval of the law.

Yousef Bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen stressed that this law is racist and illegitimate.

He called on the worldwide community to reject and condemn this racist law and to confront all Israeli racist laws and policies aimed at undermining the vision of a two-state solution.
