The controversial Nakba Law will be brought up for discussion on Monday in the Knesset's Constitution, Law and Justice Committee. The law, proposed by Israel Beiteinu MK Alex Miller, would make it illegal for government-sponsored organizations and institutions to mark Israel's Independence Day as a day of mourning, support terror and armed conflict against Israel or incite to violence. Additionally, the law would forbid the rejection of Israel's existence as a Jewish and democratic state. According to Miller's proposal, offenders will be fined.
