ISRAEL AND THE LAW


Israel has many faces. Perhaps one of the most impressive (and yet most attacked) is Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.

In a post-fact world where many repeat slogans without verifying facts, many assumptions and accusations are made against the Jewish nation state such as:

- How is it possible to balance a Jewish state with being a democratic state? Is it possible?
- What about non-Jewish minorities?
- Does Israel have a legal right to exist at all?
- Does Israel commit human rights violations? What about apartheid? Is Israel a racist endeavor?

When armed with knowledge and facts it is easy to address all questions, answering them with pride and knowing how to differentiate between legitimate questions and concerns versus repetition of antisemitic propaganda couched as being “only anti-Zionist.”

In this section, our goal is to highlight:
- Israel as a Jewish and democratic nation
- Our legal rights to Israel
- Jewish rights as human rights
- Lawfare



JEWISH NATION STATE



LAWFARE

Lawfare is the use of law as a weapon of war. This form of asymmetric warfare, uses the legal system against an enemy to damage, delegitimize, inconvenience, consume time and resources and win public relations victories. Lawfare is one of the methods Israel’s legitimacy is undermined.
