In Israel, the recently formed government of far-right Prime Minister Naftali Bennett failed to extend an apartheid law that denies citizenship, and even residency, to Palestinians from the Occupied Territories that are married to Israelis. The racist law had been extended every year since it was enacted in 2003. The law failed to pass after former leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s party and his allies voted against it to undermine the ruling coalition which ousted him last month.
