153. It's not that. It's about people purchasing land in a place where they don't live
but where an army they support is maintaining a brutal and completely unjustified military occupation.

There's a MASSIVE difference between that and barring anyone from purchasing land "in a nationality he is not a member of".

If the Zionist project had ever, EVER tried to deal with Palestinians in a humane, respectful manner, rather than with violent brutality and with the infamous denials that Palestine and Palestinians actually EXIST, this would be a far different situation and laws like this wouldn't even have been considered.

It is not discrimination or prejudice to prevent those aligned with your oppressors from purchasing(and let's be realistic, often as not FORCING you to sell)your land to them. And the use of phrases like "Judenrein", with its false implication that Palestinians are the moral equivalents of Nazis(something that has ALWAYS been a despicable lie)must stop and stop now if there is ever to be peace and justice in this situation.
