Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law (Temporary Order) (Amendment no. 2), 5767–2007
Legislation | 28.3.2007
The Knesset passed in third reading the discriminatory amendment to the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law which extends the temporary order by more than a year. The amendment will lead to the establishment of a committee for considering exceptional humanitarian grounds. Yet these are hollow words as it is stressed that the existence of a spouse or child in Israel is not, of itself, humanitarian grounds. Additionally, the permit to be given under the humanitarian exception will be temporary only, subject to quotas and will not provide a solution for unique cases. Under security grounds, the amendment expands the applicability of the temporary order to residents and citizens of Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq and gives the Interior Ministry broad discretion not to review family unification applications solely based on an applicant’s place of residency.
HaMoked urges the Knesset not to extend the validity of the Law of Citizenship and Entry to Israel (Temporary Order): HaMoked is of the opinion that the “relief” measures appearing in Amendment 2 to the Law are a deception. In fact, the legislation preserves and even worsens he draconian arrangement, which is based on clear racial and demographic considerations cloaked in security rationale
HaMoked to the Court: instruct the Ministry of Interior and the Military to ensure that people entitled to stay permits, as part of family unification processes, receive the renewal before the old permit expires
Following HaMoked's intervention: the military acknowledges that family unification stay permits cannot be cancelled due to financial debt (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
