Legalization Law Passes Its Second and Third Readings

Tonight the legalization law passed its second and third readings at the Knesset. In an effort to strike down this dangerous legislation, Peace Now, together with Yesh Din and ACRI will submit a petition to the Supreme Court.

Peace Now: “Tonight it became clear that Netanyahu is willing to compromise the future of both Israelis and Palestinians in order to satisfy a small group of extreme settlers for the sake of his own political survival. By passing this law, Netanyahu makes theft an official Israeli policy and stains the Israeli law books. By giving a green light to settlers to build illegally on private Palestinian land, the legalization law is another step towards annexation and away from a two state solution. In light of this madness, we must act as the responsible adults and turn to the Supreme Court in order to strike down this dangerous law.”
