US responds to Jewish state bill

The US State Department said Monday night in reaction to the Jewish state bill that: "We would expect it to continue Israel's commitment to democratic principles."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that he would continue to advance the "Jewish state bill" while maintaining the rights of all Israel's citizens.
The vote has caused a crisis within Netanyahu's coalition, with Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni vowing not to vote in favor of the bill despite the cabinet's approval of the measure on Sunday.
