The Nation State Law was passed by the Israeli Knesset on July 19, 2018. This basic law bears constitutional status, which means that current and future laws and policies that violate it are considered unconstitutional. The law strongly favors the Jewish majority population over the Arab-Palestinian minority and therefore contradicts the basic pledge for equality as articulated in Israel’s Declaration of Independence. The Abraham Initiatives is part of a broad coalition raising awareness about the law and protesting it at the policy level.
