Netanyahu: Talmud will be the basis of Israeli law

08 May 2014 AIC

Right wing news site Arutz 7 reports that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on Wednesday evening with the head of the haredi (Jewish ultra-orthodox) division of the Likud, Yaakov Vider, and said that the law he intends to submit defining Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people will include a clause stating that Israeli law will be based on the Torah and Jewish tradition.

“In the law, we will define the Talmud as the basis for the Israeli legal system,” Netanyahu told Vider, adding that the law “is a very important one that will affect how Israel looks in the future.”
