Editorial on the upholding of the Citizenship Law amendment

Good editorial in Ha'aretz today on yesterday's ruling by the Israeli Supreme Court (6-5) to uphold the May, 2002 amendment to the Citizenship Law preventing family unification of Israeli Arabs who wish to live in Israel with their Palestinian spouses.

Wow, that really does not help Israeli's legitimacy as the only democratic country in the Middle East. There is really no security issue there. It's more one of demographic control. It makes it harder to delegitimize Walt and M's accusations of racism.
