An Otzma Yehudit spokesperson tells The Times of Israel that the party is only demanding that a clause barring racists from running for the Knesset be repealed.

The clarification comes after reports and its own statements indicated that the party also sought to remove parts of the law barring those who deny Israel’s Jewish and Democratic character, as well as those who support terror groups or enemy countries.
