Joint (Arab) List MKs slam the anti-terror legislation which was signed into law by the Knesset earlier Wednesday.
The terror law is “draconian, expands the authority of the security forces and occupation authorities, in order to undermine the right to oppose the crimes of the occupation,” MKs Ahmad Tibi and Osama Sa’adi say in a joint statement. “The law does not define what terror is and represents a stain on the State of Israel’s horrifying law books. Indeed, this is a dark day for the Knesset.”
MK Hanin Zoabi rails against the “bad” and “immoral law.” The law “itself is an act of terror,” says Zoabi. “Terror against the freedom of speech, against the freedom of assembly, and terror against civilian freedoms.”
