Anti-racism Bill Further Delayed

Knesset action on the long pending anti-racism bill was further delayed last week when the Legal Committee, reviewing the latest draft, decided to continue discussion instead of passing the measure on to the floor in its present form.

The bill has been riddled with amendments by both rightwing and leftist MKs. The Legal Committee set itself a two week deadline to try to resolve the differences. It hopes to submit the bill to the plenum before the Knesset recesses for the summer.
