Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet decided unanimously on Sunday to extend the Citizenship Law restricting the "family reunification" of Israeli citizens with certain foreign partners for an additional year.
The law denies entry or living permits to partners who are considered a security threat, among them Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza, and citizens of enemy countries or from areas involved in long-term conflict with Israel. The law affects mainly Israeli Arab citizens and their families from the West Bank and Gaza.
The proposal brought before the cabinet on Sunday was submitted by Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar, and was formulated based on a Shin Bet opinion regarding the volatility of partners from the Gaza Strip.

Typically distorts the issue. It has nothing to do with Syria. It has nothing to do with marriage rights. It has to do with security risk. If someone is a threat to Israeli security, they can't come into Israel. Even if they're married to an Israeli. Can't bring in terrorists that way any more. Can still get married, but the couple would have to live wherever the terrorist spouse lives. Not worth looking it up, but I suspect the US and most countries have similar laws. Though I doubt the US enforces.
Opposition is out of its skull.
