Turkey slams Israel's 'Jewish nation-state' law






Jewish nation-state law disregards norms of universal law and ignores Palestinians' rights, says Turkey's Foreign Ministry


Turkey on Thursday slammed a new Jewish nation-state law passed by Israel's Knesset, saying it "disregards" norms of universal law. 




In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said: “The Jewish nation-state law passed by the Israeli parliament today disregards norms of universal law and ignores the rights of Palestinians.”




The statement came after Israel's Knesset on Thursday passed a law which declares the country to be “the nation-state of the Jewish people”.


The ministry also condemned the law -- describing the right to self-determination in Israel as only belonging to Jewish people -- as “antiquated” and “discriminatory.”


The statement called on the international community to take a stand against the law, meant to end the vision of a two-state solution.
