Israeli Knesset Reinstates Racist “Citizenship Law”; Palestinian Lawmaker Salah Hamouri Arrested

HeadlineMar 11, 2022

Israeli legislators passed a law Thursday that denies citizenship rights to Palestinians from the occupied West Bank or Gaza who are married to Israelis. A similar measure had already been in place since 2003 but expired last year. Critics call it a racist law that singles out Arabs and forces thousands of families to move or live apart.

In other news from Israel, authorities raided and arrested French Palestinian activist and lawyer Salah Hamouri. The arrest came one day after Hamouri published an op-ed in Jacobin describing the “judicial harassment” he and his family have faced for years. In November, researchers revealed Hamouri’s phone had been hacked with the powerful Pegasus spyware, made by the Israeli firm NSO Group.
