Ayelet Shaked, the Minister of Discrimination

15 25 9

The institution of admission committees is a dubious mechanism by which cooperative communities (“yishuvim kehilati’im”) and nonmember “expansion” neighborhoods of kibbutzim and moshavim screen prospective residents.

The Admission Committees Law, passed in 2011, restricted the use of such panels to communities in the Negev, Galilee and the Golan Heights with no more than 400 households.

Now, instead of getting rid of this institution, which leaves the door wide open for discrimination, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked has decided to extend it to communities of up to 700 families.

This would let such communities enjoy the best of all worlds: to thrive on state-owned land while maintaining their characteristic socioeconomic homogeneity and bequeathing it to future generations.........
