Foreign Minister Eli Cohen and Coalition Chairman Ofir Katz have announced a plan to advance a basic law to anchor the standing of the Druze society in Israel. This comes after Druze spiritual leader Sheikh Muwafaq Tarif urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to amend the controversial Nation-State Law to ensure equal rights for minorities. The plan is not to amend the Nation-State Law, but to legislate a separate basic law that will define the standing of the Druze community. The announcement did not mention the Bedouin community or other Israeli Arabs.
