The new electoral law of Lebanon and Jewish voters

So Lebanese sectarian Christian parties (both from March 8 and from March 14) are endorsing a terrible electoral law set up by a sectarian Greek Orthodox shop.  According to the law being discussed in a parliamentary committee as we speak, a Muslim voter can only vote for a Muslim candidate while a Christian voter can only vote for a Christian candidate.  Only a Jewish voter can vote for either of them.  Only Jews voters can be citizens according to this lousy sectarian law.
