BREAKING NEWS

World Israel News reported on an emergency vote last night where the Knesset voted against a bill that would extend Israeli law to Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria for another five years.


Ever since the 1967 Six Day War – when Israel liberated Judea and Samaria, which had been under Jordanian rule for 19 years – successive Israeli governments have renewed the law every five years. The law enables Israeli citizens living in Judea and Samaria to receive the same benefits, such as social security, as those living in pre-1967 Israeli territory, and to be prosecuted in Israeli criminal courts.


This vote against the current Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s legislation is evidence of the ongoing instability that has plagued Israeli politics for decades and may lead to yet another collapse of government and a fifth election since 2019.
