A number of Arab lawmakers ripped up copies of the bill as the law was passed, and they were removed from the chamber as a result.

Palestinians stand next to a temporary tent near the ruins of a house, in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Beit Hanina where residents demolished their dwellings to not face the prospect of Israeli settlers moving in after loosing a land ownership case in Israeli courts, July 19, 2018.

"It has passed a law of Jewish supremacy and told us that we will always be second-class citizens".

Expressing concern for the situation, Spokesperson for the EU Foreign Affairs chief said, "We are concerned, we have expressed this concern and we will continue to engage with Israeli authorities in this context".

The bill also removes Arabic as an official language alongside Hebrew, downgrading it to a "special status" that enables its continued use in Israeli institutions.

Israeli Arabs reportedly comprise about 20 per cent of Israel's nine million-strong population.

"I announce with shock and sorrow the death of democracy", Ahmed Tibi, an Arab lawmaker, told reporters after the law was adopted.

Clauses that were dropped after political wrangling would have enshrined in law establishment of Jewish-only communities. Abbas said the legislation will not discourage Palestinians in their legitimate struggle to defeat the occupation and establish their independent state.

DAP urged the global community today to pressure Israel to abolish its newly-passed legislation that essentially defines the country as a Jewish state. Hundreds of thousands were forced to leave their homes or fled.

Six Palestinian officials were denied visas by the United States to attend a high-level meeting on development at the United Nations in NY this week, the Palestinian ambassador said today.

Turkey, a former ally of Israel, also criticised the law.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry says Palestinian people, Muslim countries and "freedom-seeking nations" will eventually "eradicate" the racism propagated by the Israeli regime in the occupied Palestinian territories as the "era of racial discrimination and apartheid" has come to an end.
