"We respectfully ask the Government of Israel to clarify these and other questionable elements of the bill, and to reaffirm the core principles and values that make up the very foundation of Israel's vibrant and admired democracy", AJC said.
The Bill, which passed by 62 votes to 55, cites the expansion of Jewish settlements as a priority of the government and establishes Hebrew as the only official language of the state, stripping Arabic of that status. "The Jewish Nation-State bill officially legalizes apartheid and legally defines Israel as an apartheid system", he said in a tweet.
Ashrawi also said that this affirms Israel's willful intent to erase the Palestinian narrative, presence and continuity on the land, while actively eradicating the history, culture and identity of the Palestinian people which predate the creation of the state of Israel.
Al Jazeera says the decision to enshrine aspects of Jewish cultural heritage at a national level "further marginalises the 1.8 million Palestinian citizens of Israel": for example, by downgrading Arabic to a "special status" language, having been an official language of the state since its inception in 1948.
"We are proud of being a strong nation deeply rooted in our homeland", Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said in a statement.
The pan-Arab body warned that the bill will ignite discrimination and more attacks against Palestinians within the green line.

The nation-state bill passed in its second and third readings following an hours-long debate in the Knesset, Israel's parliament.
In addition, she said that the US administration's blind bias in favor of Israel and its total disdain for worldwide law have emboldened Israel to persist with such unlawful and immoral policies.
The law will apply to areas known as the "Green Line", where almost 20 percent of the population is Palestinian citizens of Israel, as well as to territories occupied in 1967, such as Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, which were annexed to the territory of the State of Israel by law.
Critics say the new law will deepen a sense of alienation within the Arab minority.
"No racist law will undermine the rights of our people. It seeks to maintain a regime in which one ethnic-national group controls an indigenous-national group living in the same territory while advancing ethnic superiority by promoting racist policies in the most basic aspects of life". Hundreds of thousands were forced to leave their homes or fled.
