The Israeli cabinet on Sunday approved contentious draft legislation that emphasizes Israel’s Jewish character above its democratic nature in a move that critics said could undermine the fragile relationship with the country’s Arab minority at a time of heightened tensions.

The promotion of a so-called nationality law has long stirred fierce debate inside Israel, where opponents fear that any legislation that gives pre-eminence to Israel’s Jewishness could lead to an internal rift as well as damage Israel’s relations with Jews in other countries and with the country’s international allies.

The vote on Sunday also highlighted political fissures within the governing coalition amid increasing talk of early elections. The bill, a proposal for a basic law titled “Israel, the Nation-State of the Jewish People,” passed 14 to 6, with two centrist coalition parties opposing it. Parliament still has to approve the bill for it to become a law.

Answering critics who have questioned why such legislation is necessary 66 years after the foundation of the state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the push for legislation.

FBI Conducting Preemptive Arrests of Activists in Ferguson: FBI Arrests "Activists" in So-Called "Sting" — Claim They Tried to Obtain Guns and Explosives

The arrests appear to be part of an FBI entrapment operation and the charge appear to be trumped up. Law enforcement officials have referred to the "operation" against the two individuals as a "sting" and say the charges against the "activists" were meant to "take them out of the rotation" of leadership in Ferguson. Both individuals were said to be members of the "Black Panthers."

Federal authorities in Missouri charged two men with lying on forms to purchase guns ahead of the grand jury decision in the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Olajuwon Davis and Brandon Baldwin only faced those charges as of late Friday, but sources told ABC News that authorities were looking into whether they tried to acquire ready-made explosives and other weapons ahead of the decision, which is expected soon.

The two men are believed to be associated with radical groups and the charges that were filed were intended to "take them out of the rotation," said one source.

Neither man had a lawyer listed on court documents. The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives played a part in the arrest.
