  1. IJV EVENT: CAN ISRAEL BE BOTH ‘JEWISH AND DEMOCRATIC’? THE ISRAELI NATION STATE LAW, JEWISH IDENTITY & THE ONGOING STRUGGLE FOR PALESTINIAN RIGHTS

    3

    March 10, 2021 by IJV

    In response to Israel’s ‘Nation State Law’ of 2018, widely regarded as formalising the supremacy of Jews over the country’s non-Jewish citizens, Avraham Burg has petitioned through the Israeli courts to have his official designation as a Jew revoked. Burg’s arguments sharply highlight the contradictions between Israel’s discriminatory practices towards Palestinians and its international presentation as an outpost of liberal democracy.
    This panel discussion, hosted by Independent Jewish Voices, will explore these issues, asking how the contestation of Jewish identity in Israel might resonate in Europe and North America, and how these arguments might productively strengthen campaigns in support of Palestinian dignity and rights.
