Israeli court ruling on citizenship 'racist' - Middle East - Al Jazeera English

Sometimes i wonder how on earth such laws are allowed to be passed. Like seriously? This is unbelievable! 


"The 2003 law bans granting citizenship or residency to Palestinian spouses of Israelis, but allows for certain exemptions for people who are not believed to pose security risks, including Palestinian men older than 35 and women older than 25.

Last year, only 33 out of 3,000 applications for exemptions were approved, said lawyer Sawsan Zaher, who filed a challenge to the law on behalf of the Adalah Arab rights advocacy group.”

What arrogance?! Is this guy really serious right now? “Impaired IMF’s ability to tackle global economic crisis.” which global economic crisis? Wait before i even go there, was it not his irresponsibility that got him into hot mess in the first place and now he is claiming immunity? And secondly let’s not even get started with how i personally feel about the IMF and their Shylock ways of handling “developing” countries and the absolute “ignorance” of these countries as they let IMF eat up more than they can chew. Now, let me get back to this arrogant son of a gun. You are accused of raping a woman and you stand there with no shame to claim immunity and claim the accusation barred you from tackling the global economic crisis? The European crisis could have been prevented by you? I thought the IMF was an organization? What crisis could have been prevented by the you? Are you the only one allowed to think for the IMF? Please, someone tell this man to go have a seat and confess his sins!
