Israeli labor bill for settlers sparks uproar

FILE - In this Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012 file photo Jewish settlers are seen in the unauthorized West Bank Jewish settlement of Migron. At first glance, a new legislative proposal seems innocuous enough-- enforcing a uniform labor law that protects all Israeli women, regardless of where they live, against unlawful dismissal. But as with most things in Israel, it comes with an added twist. Critics say that under the guise of woman's rights, the bill's true intent is to further entrench Israeli control over occupied territory. (AP Photo/Sebastian Scheiner)
