Israeli Cabinet passes loyalty bill, Arabs angry - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - msnbc.com

So basically, if you are not a Jew in Israel, you are automatically a second-class citizen. What evil regime does this remind you of?

Saudi Arabia? Iran? Pakistan? (Yes, I know Pakistan's South Asian not Middle Eastern, but it is based on a religious ideology - Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Bahais, and Ahmadis are second class citizens)

Sad that Israel, once a Western country that just happened to be in the Middle East and committed to Anglo-American democratic traditions, is on the road to becoming just another Middle Eastern country. Israel used to have strong moral authority and produced great men and women of conscience, now it's just another Middle Eastern religious based state. Or at best a democracy corrupted by the influence of religious fanatics like Lebanon.

Israel still has a strong moral authority and is still producing great men & women of conscience. It is still a democracy. But since its creation as a state, religion has never been completely separated from the civil authority (which is different from the USA).

Fatah and Hamas in the West Bank and Gaza, respectively.

So basically, if you are not a follower of Islam in any Arab Country, you are automatically not a citizen.

Example: In Saudi Arabia, Islam is the state religion and all citizens must be Muslims.

What part of "new citizens" do you not understand?
Israel's Cabinet approved on Sunday a bill that would require new citizens to pledge a loyalty oath to a "Jewish and democratic" state....
Much ado about nothing.

More hate threads re: Israel.
