"The day-to-day reality for people in the Occupied Palestinian Territories includes restrictions on movement, arbitrary arrest and detention, confiscation and destruction of property, segregation of transport, denial of basic services and resources and disproportionate military response to even the mildest forms of protest and resistance. Palestinian citizens of Israel have also suffered a severe erosion of their civil rights. In late July, the Israeli Knesset, or parliament, approved the Jewish nation-state Basic Law. This legislation removes the official language status of Arabic, legalizes housing discrimination based on ethnic, religious, or national background and denies Palestinians the right to self-determination."
