Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Anadrol 50" Netanyahu supports the bill, but critics say it will inflame tensions with Palestinians seen here celebrating a fatal attack on Jews last week.
The Israeli Cabinet on Sunday moved to legally define the country as the nation state of the Jewish people a decision that will likely inflame already raw tensions.
The 14 6 vote, which came amid weeks of deadly Arab Jewish violence, was denounced by critics as damaging to the country's democratic character and poorly timed at such a combustible moment.
The bill, backed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, now heads toward a full parliamentary vote on Wednesday.
Israel has always defined itself as the "Jewish state" a term that was contained in the country's declaration of independence in 1948. The new law seeks to codify that status in Israel's de facto constitution.
Netanyahu said the bill is a response to Israel's Arab critics both inside and outside Israel who Masteron Subq question the country's right to exist.
Netanyahu has long demanded that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the Jewish homeland as a condition of any peace deal.
Israel has more than 1.5 million Arab citizens.
The bill calls not only for recognizing Israel's Jewish character but for institutionalizing Jewish law as "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" an inspiration for legislation and "Anaboliset Aineet" dropping Arabic as an official language.
It will be a mark of shame for the parliament to pass such a law.
Netanyahu insisted that Israel would be both Jewish and democratic.
"There are those who would like the democratic to prevail over the Jewish and there are those who would like the Jewish to prevail over the democratic," he said. "And in "Anaboliset Aineet" the principles of the law that I will submit today both of these values are equal and both must be considered to the same degree."
Israel is in the midst of its worst sustained bout of violence in nearly a decade. Eleven Israelis have been killed in Palestinian attacks over the past month, including five people who were killed with guns and meat cleavers in a bloody assault on a Jerusalem synagogue last week.
Finance Minister Yair Lapid called it a "terrible" piece of legislation meant to appease hard liners ahead of primaries in Netanyahu's hawkish Likud Primobolan Zeny Party.
Health Minister Yael German said his Yesh Atid party would support a law only if it emphasized Israel's Jewish Methenolone Enanthate Para Que Sirve and democratic nature equally.
"It will be a mark of shame for the parliament to pass such a law," she said.
In a statement, Israel's attorney general, Yehuda Weinstein, said he had serious doubts about the "buy cheap jintropin online" legality of the bill's language because it impinges on Israel's democratic character.
