Former Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On calls on the faction’s current lawmakers to oppose extending the Palestinian family reunification law.

“Meretz petitioned [the Supreme Court] twice against this racist law,” Gal-On tells Army Radio. “There cannot be a compromise here. Any compromise is a capitulation. The coalition partners need to take into account that Meretz also has an ideological view.”
