Dr. Munir Nusseibeh:

  • The law is racist and has political objectives to counter Palestinian demographics
  • The law fragments Palestinian families and undermines protection for women and children
Ms. Randa Siniora:
  • The new law renders women victims of compound violence from the occupation and from their husbands in the case of divorce
  • In 2021, we provided legal and social consultations and interventions to 252 Palestinian women

The Israeli Knesset recently passed the so-called “Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law”, which observers say is racist and has political and demographic objectives to combat Palestinian presence in Jerusalem, inside the ’48 territories and in all Palestinian areas. They also said the law falls under Israel’s policy of ethnic cleansing exercised by occupation authorities.

The new amendments to this law prevent the “reunification” of Palestinian families from living under the same roof. They also impose restrictions on marriage to Palestinians from inside the Green Line or who are citizens of a number of Arab countries in addition to Iran, all of which are classified as “hostile”. The law even includes Palestinians living in foreign countries.
