Joint List MK Yousef Jabareen blast Regev’s proposal.
“Minister Regev continues to display provocative nationalism and incitement against Arab citizens,” said the Hadash MK.
This follows her “cultural loyalty” bill, which is an attempt “to force Jewish national symbols on the Arab public,” argued Jabareen.
“What does this add to culture? What values does it promote? Does it promote coexistence and understanding between Jews and Arabs or does it deepen tensions and alienation?”
“In a real democracy the state does not impose national symbols on the minority,” he continued.
“Regev's populism hurts culture, democracy and the delicate relationship between the two nations," concluded Jabareen.
