(JNS) The head of the Arab League hosted a delegation of Arab Knesset members from the Joint List party this week, who railed against a new Israeli nation-state law that defines Israel as a Jewish state.

Amid talks, the group called the new Israeli law “racist.” Knesset members Ahmed Tibi and Jamal Zahalka reported that Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit called it an “apartheid law.”

“We came here to explain the implications of this law to the Arab public and the national conflict, as part of our global propaganda campaign,” Hadashot news reported the MKs as saying. The news source reported that the MKs said the law “destroys the possibility of two states.”
