Opening Remarks
This month, the Supreme Court delivered the most racist decision in its history. The decision approved a law which prevents spouses from living together as a family in the State of Israel if one of them is a Palestinian from the Occupied Territories. The right to family life is a natural right which supersedes any other legal right. This right existed prior to the enactment of Israel’s Basic Laws, prior to the founding of the Knesset and prior to the establishment of the Jewish State. Indeed, it existed before the development of politics. There is no moral basis for a piece of legislation which seeks to violate a natural right which has existed since the beginning of history. This racist law continues to encumber, threaten and obstruct the ability of thousands of Arab families to exercise their right to lead their lives like the rest of humanity. These families, along with the entire Arab minority in Israel and international and local human rights organizations, will continue their struggle against this racist law until its annulment.
