A RACIAL STATE:

Controversial citizenship law that bans Palestinians married to Israelis from living in Israel extended by the Knesset (DOUG BOLTON,  Wednesday 17 June 2015, The Independent)

Israel's Knesset has extended a law that bans Palestinians married to Israelis from living with their spouses in Israel for another year.

The law was first passed in 2003 and extended in 2008, and forbids Palestinians married to Israelis from living in Israel, or becoming Israeli citizens.

Many critics say that the law essentially makes marriage between Israelis and Palestinians impossible, as the couple would have to live in different countries that are very difficult to pass between.
