    Israel's Arab community has been angered by the government's proposal requiring any non-Jew taking Israeli citizenship to swear allegiance to the country as a Jewish and democratic state.

    The controversial phrase added to citizenship law in move is seen by critics as attempt to get support for new settlement freeze.

    Palestinians say the law would legitimise discrimination and the dispossession of the indigenous people.
