Tens of thousands of Palestinians and Jews protest Nation-State Law

(12.8.2018) “We are not going to rest after this incredible protest,” Barekeh continued. “We are marking the beginning of the way and there is no way back until the law is rescinded. Our struggle will be here, a popular parliamentary and democratic struggle for Arabs as well as Jews.”

“I came to France from Morocco when I was 10 years old,” Eva Illouz told the crowd. “Although I was Jewish and from Morocco, I went to the same schools as the French, and my teachers gave me grades just like the French. I felt that I wasn’t defined by my origin or religion. As a girl I felt deep in my bones the meaning of living in a country where I am treated as an equal.”

FULL TEXT: Haaretz Publisher Schocken Calls for Israelis to ‚Join the Struggle‘ at Nation-state Rally

One of the most significant threats to Jewish nationalism, as expressed in the nation-state law, is Arab representation in the Knesset, according to a portion of the Israeli population. So I tell you, the Arab citizen: Do not give the right-wing government a prize – despair and isolation. You all have the political power to reshape public discourse in Israel by participating in elections. Use it.

And to all the citizens of Israel, from every tribe, I call to join the struggle against the elimination of democracy, to develop an Israeli society, pluralistic and prosperous, with the participation of minorities in the economy and in politics.

Arab protesters say not enough attended thousands-strong anti-Nationality Law protest

Approximately 20-25 thousands people showed up in solidarity against the law, a number in which Agbariyah expressed disappointment.

“I expect that out of a million-and-a-half Arab citizens, at least 200,000 should turn up. It is unacceptable if we don’t manage to bring the Arab public to this protest,” Agbariyah complained. “Arab Knesset MKs have to get the crowds into the street. Committees, mayors of mixed cities, mayors of Arab cities—everyone should be uniting as one.”

The movement is young — it first appeared in late 2015 — but it has been steadily growing in size and influence… Standing Together — identifiable by its signature purple paraphernalia — has, over the past year or two, become ubiquitous at protests around the country.“
