Finally, all factions of the House agree: the Knesset's Economy Committee yesterday approved the continuous application of the Cooperative Societies Ordinance, which was intended to expand the applicability of the law regarding acceptance committees in community settlements.

This is a bill that was approved in first reading in the previous Knesset with the consent of all House factions.

The request to expand the bill was presented to the committee yesterday by MK Simcha Rotman, but it receives (for a change) the backing of all factions of the house as mentioned, both coalition and opposition. Today, the

ordinance allows communal settlements in the Negev and Galilee to carry out a procedure of checking compatibility through acceptance committees, provided that the settlement The community has up to 400 families. According to the proposal, which was approved in the first reading in the previous Knesset, against the background of the increase in the population, the members of the Knesset are asking to allow the operation of admission committees in additional localities, including: in the Iron Valley, in the south of Mount Hebron, in the Adolim region, in the Lachish region and in the Yush where up to 700 Plots for construction.

The request was submitted by MK Simcha Rothman, who said that it was a bill submitted in the previous Knesset by coalition and opposition representatives, which was intended to address a difficult problem in communities in the Negev and the Galilee. , and this creates discrimination compared to the nearby Arab settlements that receive lots with an exemption from tendering for residents.

"The law is designed to reduce this discrimination and give breathing space to the localities that do the pioneering mission for us."

Among the opponents of the law, naturally, were the Arab members of the Knesset.

MK Ahmed Tibi explained this well, noting that the unity of opinion on this issue between the coalition and the opposition makes it even more difficult for him


It is clear that testing cultural compatibility is a racist practice.

A large part of the racist laws in the Knesset were passed not by the fascist wing but by the direction of Mapai and the like, and it is still a racist law and when the two Jewish sides join together my task is more difficult, and I am sorry that people like MK Shuster support it." MK

Yosef Atauna added that the proposal was intended to give control to one ethnic group, which in this case is Jewish.

He pointed out that the attempts to Judaize the Negev without providing a real solution to the Bedouin issue will not succeed.

MK Ze'ev Elkin, former Minister of Construction and Housing, stated at the beginning of his speech that he supports the continuous application of the law and also acted in the previous Knesset to do so. "This is a proper and correct amendment.

Today there is a very big problem of developing the settlements and promoting them and building them - this is an important element in solving the housing crisis we have, I am not talking about the national need to strengthen settlements in the periphery.

Today's law dramatically limits the development of the settlement.

The leadership of the settlement says we don't want to lose the ability to lose the seat of the settlement and they are limited to a quota of only 400.

Today there is a great demand for such a settlement in the periphery, so it is important to increase the quota and allow absorption."

The legal advisors: check if the balance has not been violated

The representative of the Ministry of Justice, Adv. Noa Mosheif, said that the continuation of the legislation should be in coordination with the government, and added that there are significant legal difficulties in the legislation. "When there are 400 households, there is a community fabric that justifies acceptance committees.

In order to increase the limit, at the very least, a professional opinion is needed that indeed the cooperative community interest exists even when there are 700 households.

We will request that the legislation be based on a professional opinion," she said.

The committee's legal advisor, Adv. Itai Atzmon, also asked to "draw attention to the fact that we also thought that the proposal raises legal difficulties and we referred to this in the last discussion in the committee and even wrote it in the explanatory notes to the bill The arrangement that was drawn up at the time and approved by the Constitutional Committee more than a decade ago was based on delicate balances, and the members of the Knesset are asking to change the balances, it should be considered seriously and not overly infringe on fundamental rights."

At the end of the discussion, the proposal to apply consecutive trials was approved by a majority of 7 supporters.

Now the Knesset plenum will be given the committee's notice regarding the application of the law consecutively and the government and factions in the Knesset will be given two weeks to examine whether they wish to oppose it.

If there are no objections, the plenary will be entitled, at the end of the two weeks, to vote on the proposal.

If the plenum votes in favor of applying the law of continuity, it means that the proposal was accepted in the first reading, and it will be returned to the committee to prepare it for the second and third reading.
