Joint List MK Sami Abou Shahadeh says he’s in favor of ditching the Israeli flag, national anthem and the Law of Return, which allows Jews from across the world to immigrate to Israel.

“We need a serious change in the racist structure that discriminates in favor of Jews and to build a better democratic model,” Abou Shahadeh, who heads the Arab nationalist Balad faction within the Joint List alliance, tells Kan public radio.
