"The proposed bill doesn't make any distinction between Jews and Muslims," MK Ayelet Shaked (Bayit Yehudi), who helped design the bill, told Israel Radio on Sunday. "Just as Arab murderers wouldn't receive a pardon, neither would Yigal Amir [Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's Jewish assassin]."

The proposed legislation would block the president's ability to pardon criminals in special cases like terrorism, and allow for a sentence of life without parole.
