IMEMC – Right-wing news site Arutz 7 reports that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke, on Wednesday evening, with the head of the haredi (Jewish ultra-orthodox) division of the Likud, Yaakov Vider, saying that the law he intends to submit, defining Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people, will include a clause stating that Israeli law will be based on the Torah and Jewish tradition.

“In the law, we will define the Talmud as the basis for the Israeli legal system,” Netanyahu told Vider, adding that the law “is a very important one that will affect how Israel looks in the future.”
