It’s “racism.” It’s “blanket discrimination.” And yet neither Amnesty International nor anyone else seems concerned about the fact that “23 Palestinians who received permits to join their families in Israel have helped with attacks against Israelis.” Israel is a primary front in the global jihad, and as such must take measures necessary for its own defense; the primary obstacle to peace for Israelis and Palestinians is the jihad ideology. But of course, the human rights establishment hasn’t noticed that there is a global jihad. From the BBC, with thanks to Teri:
Human rights groups have renewed petitions against a law that bars Palestinians from joining family members in Israel.
The Israeli government first passed the law one year ago and recently extended it for another six months.
Amnesty International says the law is ‘blanket discrimination’
It imposes a blanket ban on granting residency or citizenship status to Palestinians from the occupied territories who are married to Israeli citizens.
Israel says this is part of security measures to combat the four-year Palestinian uprising.
Palestinian and other critics say this is racist legislation that violates international law….
For the Israeli government, the case is clear: this is a temporary legal measure to protect its citizens.
During the first three years of the Palestinian uprising, it says, 23 Palestinians who received permits to join their families in Israel have helped with attacks against Israelis.
