Arab Joint List to condemn Israel at UN

Aug. 27, 2018 5:52 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 31, 2018 1:58 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Arab members of the Israeli Knesset, of the Joint Arab List, aim to present a resolution at the United Nations to condemn the Nationality Law, in coordination with Palestinian representative to the UN, Riyad Mansour.

Hebrew-language news sites reported that Israeli diplomats have been informed that MKs of the Joint List have met with senior UN officials, including the Under-Secretary-General of Political Affairs.

Members of the Joint List reportedly presented the text of the Nationality Law saying it contains "Apartheid" provisions.

Israeli National News site reported that Israeli officials believe that the move may lead to a debate and a vote, and are now trying to wage an all-out battle against it.

According to the news site, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein responded to the report saying that "members of Knesset from the Joint List who receive salaries from the state and win all the parliamentary tools still dare to besmirch our name in the world."

"Anyone who collaborates with the Palestinian Authority against Israel should ask himself whether his place is in the Palestinian or Israeli parliament," Edelstein wrote in his Twitter account.

The UN General Assembly will be holding its annual session next month.
