Israel to retain Jewish majority even at risk of violating human rights

Israel must safeguard a Jewish majority even at the expense of human rights, the country's justice minister has said, in a speech defending a bill that would legally define Israel as the "national home of the Jewish people" for the first time.

Ayelet Shaked said on Monday that Israel must both maintain a Jewish majority and democracy, but stressed that keeping the state's Jewish character may come "at the price" of human rights violations.

"There is place to maintain a Jewish majority even at the price of violation of rights," Shaked told a conference in Tel Aviv on Monday, Israeli media reported.

In her speech, Shaked, a member of the far-right Jewish Home party, also defended the so-called Jewish Nation-State Bill, which would constitutionally define Israel as the national home of the Jewish people for the first time.
