Israel's racist agenda

Hugh Lanning, 
Chair of PSC  
The racist agenda of the Israeli state has come under attack for its treatment of Palestinians. The Supreme Courts decision to uphold a law that means a Palestinian who marries an Israeli citizen cannot get Israeli citizenship has been described as racist and as a form of ethnic engineering to reduce the Arab population of Israel. PSC Chair, Hugh Lanning, wrote in the Morning Star about the laws which institutionalise racism against Palestinians.
