However, Netanyahu made it clear to some faction leaders today that the final decision will bind all Knesset members in the Likud, religious Zionism and the ultra-Orthodox parties, thus making the vote not only a test of the coalition but also a test of opposition cohesion. Some Likud MKs, including Avi Dichter, have signaled in recent days that they intend to support the bill, even if a different decision is made. Such a situation could create significant cracks within the Netanyahu bloc, among other things in light of threats made today by the chairman of Torah Judaism, MK Moshe Gafni, to the head of the opposition, according to which, "If not everyone is united, we will act as we wish."



Netanyahu accused earlier today that "Bennett and Lapid are incapable of preserving the Jewish character of the State of Israel," and said that the Basic Law: Immigration must be promoted in order to "preserve Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. We must prevent the entry of Palestinian masses into Israel every year ".The existing law simply does not meet this requirement. "



Netanyahu added that "they insist on the flawed law that even they are unable to pass without us because they have formed a government with RAAM and Meretz.

They expect us to pass the perforated law, not to solve the problem of the State of Israel and ensure its survival as a Jewish and democratic state, but to ensure the survival of their coalition.

It is an indescribable insolence and shame. "

According to his proposal, a committee will be set up to examine humane solutions for certain families.

The organizing committee is expected to convene tomorrow morning to determine the identity of the committee that will discuss the law in the Knesset. The coalition believes that they will not have a majority, and it will lose in this vote, and despite this, a discussion has been scheduled in the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on the law itself. If the coalition fails to determine the identity of the committee that will discuss the law, it will go directly to a vote in the plenum, which will take place on the night between Monday and Tuesday, towards the end of the agenda. Until then, it will be possible to hold talks within the coalition or with the opposition factions to overcome the first crisis of the new government. And even if it is not resolved, it can be assumed that the government will not fall from it.



The Family Reunification Act is a provision that has been extended every year since 2003, and was enacted in the context of the second intifada.

Its purpose is to impose restrictions on the granting of citizenship or residence permits in Israel to Palestinians who have married Israelis, as well as to citizens of Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq who wish to receive status against the background of family reunification.

It was one of the most difficult months in the second intifada, a few days after the attack on the Park Hotel in Netanya and with the start of Operation Defensive Shield.

The day after the attack on the Matzah restaurant in Haifa, in which 16 civilians were killed, then-Interior Minister Eli Yishai ordered all the directors of the population bureaus in the country to stop the "family reunification" proceedings.

These procedures allowed residents of the Occupied Territories who are the spouses of Israeli citizens and residents to obtain legal status in Israel.

The reason for its enactment was security: the terrorist who carried out the attack in Haifa, Shadi Tubassi, lived in Jenin, but held an Israeli identity card, since his mother was an Israeli citizen.

The law applies to spouses and children over the age of 14 who were born to a mixed couple.
