Religious Zionism party chief Bezalel Smotrich claims the current law the coalition wishes to extend “has been punched full of holes by the High Court of Justice and legal advisers and provides only a partial solution.”

He calls on the coalition to work on the opposition’s proposed immigration law that he asserts will impose much tougher restrictions on those seeking citizenship through marriage.

He claims it is the coalition that is playing petty politics by refusing to discuss that proposal.
