Al-Zaytouna Centre for Studies and Consultations has published an academic article entitled, “The Outcome of the 20th Knesset’s Legislative Process: Laws and Bills 2015–2019,” by the specialist in Israeli affairs, Mamoon Kiwan.
This study endeavors to define the legislative mechanisms in the Knesset and their objectives, i.e., the enactment of legislations of different issues. It concentrates on the legislation process of the “occupier law” and its objective, by displaying the legislation process of the 20th Knesset, 2015–2019, the phases that the laws pass through: beginning with being submitted as bills and ending in becoming applicable laws in force.
The study concludes that the results of the legislative process of the 20th Knesset, which include the laws and bills that did not reach the third and last reading, are in general not based on the principles of justice, the International humanitarian law, and the International humanitarian laws that regulate the laws of ordinary states. They are rather based on the foundations of Apartheid, which are discriminatory and Judaizing laws, supporting the occupation and settlement building. Hence, they are the laws of the colonizer-occupier that observe his policies.
