Prime Minister Netanyahu says his proposal to enshrine Israel’s status as a Jewish country should include a provision establishing the Talmud as the basis of Israeli law.

“I want to anchor provisions into this basic law to ensure that the State of Israel was created and exists on a foundation of the Torah and of Jewish tradition,” the prime minister told Yaakov Vider, a haredi member of the Likud party presidium.


The comment was published by the haredi Kikar Hashabbat website following the Likud Central Committee meeting Wednesday night.

  1. The State of Israel must adopt the Law of God (Written Torah) as its constitution, because it is written in the Torah, in Shemot (Exodus) 19:5-8 that the people of Israel made a pact with God, in which Israel accepted to keep the pact of God, and to be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
    The State of Israel must enforce the Law of God (Written Torah), because it was established by God. The State of Israel must not enforce the so called “Oral Torah”, because it was not established by God, but was created by men.

  2. Who is blocking reforming the government more than Netanyahoo? He says one thing and does another. Israel needs Jewish law especially in the army with the insane rules of engagement which landed a soldier in jail for cocking his rifle. Under Jewish law he would have been obligated to shoot them dead for threatening his life.

  3. Go for it BiBi we want you too do this. Israel is the only JEWISH country in the world, it is high time the world got that! Nothing they say or do will change this fact!!! The Jewish land and people of Israel Chi Vekayam!

  4. Wow! I feel so elated to know how the Prime Minister would uphold the classic Jewish tradition inscribed in the Talmud as basis of their national law. May all Israel learn their grassroots moral and ethical values founded in the Talmudic teachings and insights.

  5. Phil Aghion and Uzi Kattan are a couple of ass licking jew fagots! The Talmud is a book of racist hate towards the rest of mankind and nothing else. This will NEVER HAPPEN because Israel is about to go “Bye Bye”! 😉
