The Israeli Cabinet's ministerial legislation committee has just approved a somewhat milder version of the infamous "Nakba Law". Since the Cabinet's coalition has an automatic parliamentary majority, and since anyway only a couple dozen out of the Knesset's 120 members oppose this law, it is sure to pass now - unless the international price Israel pays is deemed too high by its politicians.

The law's original version - penned, of course, by one of Avigdor Lieberman's party members - outlawed any public commemoration of the Nakba - the 1948-1949 displacement of 60% of the Palestinian people and their turning from an ordinary indigenous people into a broken, fragmented, global "nuisance".

Some Labor ministers balked (yup, in case you've forgotten Israel's Labor party is in bed with these fascist jerks)
