“YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SPEAK YOUR MIND! ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE HELD AGAINST YOU!!”

Those words are heard daily in Israel these days….

Slowly but surely, ‘the only Democracy in the Middle East’ is becoming the bastion of Middle Eastern fascism.


Israel cracks down on dissent

The Israeli parliament is considering several new laws that could seriously impact the ability of citizens to criticise the government, according to rights groups.

Human Rights Watch is reporting a crackdown on political activists who criticise Israeli’s treatment of the Palestinians.

In what rights groups consider part of an alarming pattern, Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency, recently admitted to spying on a young Australian activist in the West Bank.

Al Jazeera’s Sherine Tadros reports from Jerusalem.
