ACRI slams High Court decision to uphold citizenship law

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) Thursday leveled sharp criticism against the High Court of Justice for rejecting a petition against the Citizenship and Entry Law Wednesday. The court, two ACRI attorneys wrote in a statement, "has failed to uphold basic human rights in the face of the tyranny of the Knesset majority."
"It is a dark day for the protection of human rights and for the Israeli High Court of Justice," ACRI attorneys Dan Yakir and Oded Feller said. "The majority opinion has stamped its approval on a racist law, one [that] will harm the very texture of the lives of families whose only sin is the Palestinian blood that runs in their veins."
