A cartoon by Brazilian anti-Israel cartoonist Carlos Latuff is shown of a man wearing a Palestinian flag headband with “Free Palestine” written on it in English. Two hands, with an Israeli flag on one sleeve and an American flag on the other, are covering the man’s mouth with a tape that has “Anti-semitism” written on it in English.

Jewish Nation-State Law – law passed by the Israeli Parliament on July 19, 2018, which codifies in Israel's Basic Law that Israel is the home of the Jewish nation with Jerusalem its capital, and the Hebrew calendar its official calendar. It establishes Hebrew as the sole official language and grants Arabic a special status, and it recognizes Jewish and Israeli holidays, memorial days, and the Jewish Sabbath as national holidays and days of rest - while guaranteeing the right of all Israeli citizens and residents to celebrate their holidays and days of rest. The law, which passed with 62 in favor, 55 against, and 2 abstentions, has sparked controversy within Israeli society.
