There’s more condemnation for Israel’s new “nation-state” law, with critics saying it threatens future peace with the Palestinians.

On Thursday, the Knesset passed a bill defining Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised it as a “defining moment for Zionism”.

But opponents fear it will further marginalise Israel’s minorities.

Al Jazeera’s Mohammed Jamjoom reports from West Jerusalem.

Israeli new law is a gisgrace. It is against human rights. It is apartheid, racist, bigoted and completely morally unjust!!! Another sick move to commit crimes against Palestinians. The whole world should stand up and boycot Israel, impose sanctions and scream about the injustice of this horrific law!! Hitler was a mad dictator bent on murder and discrimination against jews. That was a crime against humanity!! Haven't the Israeli politicians learned from the past?? Obviously not. Racism is a dangerous thing. Thank God there are still some human beings on the planet with a conscience. Netanyahu is NOT one of them!!!

I'm not saying this is a good thing, but where are the people going against the other states that do this.

In my opinion if you're against Israel doing this, then you're a hypocrite if you're not against others doing this

This is great for ethnic Jews. They now have protection for them and their culture in Israel. Jews truly are a light to all nations. Now we need to see the light in Europe and pass similar laws protecting ethnic Europeans and ethnic European cultures. Thank you to my Jewish brothers and sisters for being a guiding light for Europeans! Long live the Jewish people!
