In a statement, Sunday, the Tunisian Foreign Ministry said the law:
“Exposes Israel’s disregard international resolutions, denies the historic rights of the Palestinian people, their right to self-determination and an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, without which the region cannot enjoy security and stability.”
"The quality of Israeli democracy has been declining steadily since the early 2000s, according to a well-regarded index known as V-Dem… Today, it is seen as on par with African democracies such as Namibia and Senegal and well below Tunisia."https://t.co/u88QDGSjaJ

The ministry’s statement stressed the impact of the law on efforts to revive the peace process and called it discriminatory and racist.
The Ministry called on the international community and the Security Council to put an end to Israel’s abhorrent policies, to give international protection to the Palestinian people and to preserve the legal and historical status of the occupied Palestinian territories, particularly Jerusalem.
