"This is an historic law. It's the first time there is a separate representation for Christians. Soon we'll expand on this and give [Christians] all the separate representation they deserve." -Knesset MK Yariv Levin

According to a report in Breaking Israel News, the new law affects approximately 160,000 Christians living in Israel who have fought for years to be differentiated from Muslims.

Christians in Israel will now reportedly be able to select leaders to represent the religious minority on the Advisory Committee for Equal Opportunity.

Said Knesset MK Yariv Levin: "This is an historic law. It's the first time there is a separate representation for Christians. Soon we'll expand on this and give [Christians] all the separate representation they deserve."

He was also quoted as saying Christian Arabs are the "natural allies" of Israel and are different from Muslims in that Christians "[do not] want to destroy the state from within."
