|Message||My party believes that we can be both a democratic state and a Yeudish state. We can achieve the latter through demographic and immigration management. However, we will certainly lose the former if we pass this bill. While we are a country for yeudis and almost entirely made up of yeudis; my party has issues with this bill. What about all the other times that other countries passed similar measures to discriminate against Yeudis? I don't think that doing it back will bring justice for anyone. My party politely will vote against this bill.|

|Message||It is the right of the individual to demonstrate their beliefs, even if they run counter to our faith. We will be voting nay, and we hope other parties will do the same.|
