Rally against loyalty oath: Israel becoming fascist

Professors, artists blast Israeli cabinet’s approval of bill obligating prospective non-Jewish citizens to pledge allegiance to ‘Jewish and democratic’ state.


Artists and intellectuals rallied in Tel Aviv on Sunday, shortly after the government passed the loyalty oath bill, under which non-Jewish prospective citizens will be obligated to pledge allegiance to Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state”.


The protestors read from the Declaration of Independence and warned that Israel was becoming a fascist state.


“Israel is deteriorating from the vision of a democratic state to a fascist state. Our children will either leave this terrible place, be put in jail or fight in the streets like in Iran,” Professor Yaron Ezrachi told the rally, which was held outside the Eretz Israel Museum.
