So how do you incite others,
and how violent are you allowed to be?
What is this incitement that Israel is always whining about?

Self defense is not violence.

But even more interesting is that the EU, known for its hostility to Israel, comes off as surprisingly warm. It praises Arab-Israeli cooperation under the Abraham Accords, calls for more fact-finding trips to the Jewish state, and describes Israel itself as a key partner. It also notes that today the greatest source of antisemitism is anti-Zionism, a principled objection to Israel’s existence that often masquerades as simple criticism of Israeli policies. That’s big news in itself—and welcome news.

Google has announced that it has removed the label “Apartheid Wall” from a road adjacent to the security barrier on the outskirts of eastern Jerusalem.

While it is unclear how it came about, the company called it “inappropriate” and removed the label after being alerted by JNS.

Israel has destroyed more jobs than that in Gaza.
Hamas is the government in Gaza. They make money and give jobs to those on their side only. Nothing to do with Israel, never had anything to do with Israel.

Tunnel digging into Israel is not a job, it is a declaration of war.

The Atlantic, Susie Linfield writes,

Israel is unusual in that it existed as an idea before it existed as a nation-state. Today, it is also unusual, even remarkable, for lacking internationally recognized borders—an indispensable marker of sovereignty—and for decades it has been depriving Palestinians in the occupied territories of political rights and freedom.
Is that last phrase accurate? Do Palestinians have no political rights or freedom, and is Israel depriving them of those?

At last count, out of 195 UN member states, 138 recognize the "State of Palestine."

The Palestinian passport is recognized as a travel document in nearly every nation on Earth, with the curious exceptions of Georgia, Madagascar and Syria.

Israel does control the borders as well as the population registry. But those don't affect the political rights of the 95% of Palestinians who live under Palestinian control.

Palestinians are free to set up their own elections in areas under their control. They have representation in numerous UN and international bodies, as well as sporting events. They have a pavillion in the Dubai Expo.

Palestinian leaders proudly publish news in their own media about their diplomatic gains worldwide.

And if they would have accepted any of the peace plans Israel offered, they would have defined borders as well and full statehood recognized by all.

The funny thing is that a couple of paragraphs later, in this very same essay, Linfield quotes Israeli American writer Joel Schalit: “The reality of Israel is, in large measure, a projection of fantasies, both by those who want to love the place and those who are consumed by hatred for it.”

Linfield herself doesn't fit either of those paradigms of loving or hating Israel, yet she too feels compelled to project her own fantasies on the Jewish state.

The funding cuts follow reactions in the government to the EU report on incitement such as antisemitism and encouragement towards martyrdom found in Palestinian textbooks.​

In 2013, it became "a left-wing political party."

In 2018, it was merely a "leftist party."

By 2021, HRW writes:
For most of the last six years, Israeli authorities have detained Khalida [Jarrar], a 58-year-old elected member of the Palestine Legislative Council, over her political activism with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). One of the more than 400 organizations that Israeli authorities have outlawed, the PFLP includes both a political party and an armed wing. The armed wing has attacked Israeli soldiers and civilians. Israeli authorities have never charged Khalida with involvement in armed activities.
The implication is that Israel has no business outlawing the PFLP altogether, because its armed and political sides have nothing to do with each other - the exact opposite of its position in 2002.

Even though the PFLP was involved in a murderous attack in 2019 - where the ringleader worked for one of those "human rights organizations" that HRW is defending now.

In 2002, HRW would have said that Khalida Jarrar was responsible for the death of Rina Shnerb, under the doctrine of command responsibility. 2021 HRW creates a virtual wall between the two sides of the PFLP - a wall that the PFLP itself brags doesn't exist.

What does the PFLP itself say?

Their most recent political platform was published in 2000:
It it is a natural right, and duty that the Palestinian people should defend itself, resist the occupation through various means of struggle, including armed struggle. ..[T]he form of armed struggle should be dealt with at each stage as a means to serve the inclusive political vision which is responsible for determining the function to be done at each stage of the struggle...
The political platform explicitly supports the "armed struggle" and regards it as integral to the PFLP. There are no "wings." The PFLP's "human rights organizations" are part of its social, political program. To the PFLP, "human rights" are just as much weapons as the IED that murdered Rina Shnerb, which the PFLP admits.

The only thing that changed is that Human Rights Watch, which had a shred of morality 20 years ago, is now an open ally with Palestinian terror groups.

The notion that Israel has been carrying out a decades-long crackdown on political activism in the Palestinian territories is a baseless, partisan allegation put forward by the very same organizations now blacklisted by Israel as terror organizations. There is simply no evidence to support the gross smear. It is not a fact, although AP’s Krauss states it as fact, without any attribution.

In order to establish Israel’s designation of the six Palestinian NGO’s “a major escalation” in the purported “decades-long crackdown on political activism,” Krauss must omit all information which, in fact, points to the terror activity of these groups.

And that’s exactly what he does. Instead of harnessing the power of facts, Krauss obscures the facts that don’t fit his fallacious frame.

Krauss wrote that the Defense Ministry “said the groups serve as a ‘central source’ of financing for the PFLP [Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine] and has received ‘large sums of money from European countries and international organizations,’ without elaborating.” (Emphasis added.)

Robust reporting doesn’t rely on spoon-feeding from a Defense Ministry press release. Indeed, there’s no shortage of open source material tying the relevant groups to PFLP. It was readily available for Krauss to find, if only he cared to do so.

Target Corporation and Barnes & Noble have removed “Not Guilty At Nuremberg” a book written by notorious Holocaust denier, Carlos Porter, as well as three other books, following a letter of protest to the Chairmen and CEOs of Target as well as Barnes & Noble. The Center also reached out to several other heads of large, online
NotGuiltyatNuremberg
booksellers, including Walmart, over the sales of this book.
“We assume these large online booksellers do not mass-market books promoting terrorism or pedophilia. At a time of surging anti-Semitic hate crimes here in the US, it is beyond the pale that a book would be marketed by someone who insults the memory of 6 million Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean and Global Social Action Director.

In response, Target responded to the Center, “We appreciate the time you have taken to share your concerns about this book. It’s never our intention to offend our guests with the merchandise we carry. Please know that we have removed this book from our assortment.”

Barnes and Noble wrote, “As soon as we are made aware of any such offending titles, we take prompt action to remove offending titles in accordance with our policy, as we did with 'Not Guilty at Nuremberg'. We had not been aware of this title’s existence on barnesandnoble.com. Upon receipt of your correspondence, in accordance with our content policy, we immediately removed it from our website. We also alerted Lightning Source, who have assured us that they also have deleted this title from their books for sale.”

A representative from Israel’s military announced on Monday that the IDF allowed agricultural workers from several towns in Lebanon to cross the border in order to harvest olives as part of a goodwill gesture.

“In light of the economic situation in Lebanon, and as a gesture of goodwill to the Lebanese people, the IDF opened the border to agricultural workers from Al Jabal, Itaron, and Balida,” the institution’s Arabic media spokesperson, Avichay Adraee, explained.

“The IDF allowed the workers to cross the Blue Line, to a certain extent, allowing them to harvest olive trees in Israeli territory.”

Adraee’s statement was later reportedly conveyed to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).

Lebanon is still struggling to emerge from a massive economic crisis and energy shortage.

A press release from the World Bank blamed poor leadership for the crisis, stating the country’s financial troubles stemmed from “political consensus in defense of a bankrupt economic system, which benefited a few for so long.”
