Poll: Majority of Israel's Jews back gag on rights groups - Haaretz - Israel News

More than half of Jewish Israelis think human rights organizations that expose immoral behavior by Israel should not be allowed to operate freely, and think there is too much freedom of expression here, a recent survey found.

The survey, commissioned by the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research at Tel Aviv University, will be presented Wednesday at a conference on the limits of freedom of expression.

The pollsters surveyed 500 Jewish Israelis who can be considered a representative sample of the adult Jewish population.
They found that 57.6 percent of the respondents agreed that human rights organizations that expose immoral conduct by Israel should not be allowed to operate freely.

Slightly more than half agreed that "there is too much freedom of expression" in Israel.
The poll also found that most of the respondents favor punishing Israeli citizens who support sanctioning or boycotting the country, and support punishing journalists who report news that reflects badly on the actions of the defense establishment
Another 82 percent of respondents said they back stiff penalties for people who leak illegally obtained information exposing immoral conduct by the defense establishment.
We say Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, but in Europe they are beginning to think of us otherwise," he said.

Virtually all the respondents, 98 percent, said freedom of expression was important, but the picture changed when the questions got into the details.

Regarding human rights groups' rights to operate freely, responses varied based upon the respondents' reported political views. Of those who said they were right-wing, 76 percent said human rights groups should not have the right to freely publicize immoral conduct on Israel's part.
Another 43 percent said the media should not report information confirmed by Palestinian sources that could reflect poorly on the Israeli army. Fifty-eight percent of respondents opposed harsh criticism of the country, an increase of 10 percentage points from 2003.
If you listen closely enough, you can hear what remains of Orwell's mouth throwing out expletives.

The Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies released its second annual report on the state of human rights in the Arab world for the year 2009. The report, entitled Bastion of Impunity, Mirage of Reform, concludes that the human rights situation in the Arab region has deteriorated throughout the region over the last year.

What is this? This has nothing to do with this thread. So what's your pitiful excuse for this Marc? The Arab world is supposedly worse, so therefore it's okay for Israel that is supposedly a democracy to be thinking such ways?

Would you want to live in a country where all those things were happening? How would you like it in the U.S if under Bush you were thrown in jail as an enemy of the state for simply speaking out against the government?

Israeli Arabs are increasingly radicalized and an increasing threat to Israeli national security. Israel is a tiny country the size of Vermont surrounded by 27 hostile Arab Muslim countries and 400 million belligerent Arab Muslims.

Israel is facing an existential threat from Iran.

It's not surprising that Israelis have less tolerance for ciriticism of Israel.

Even a mental midget such as yourself should be able to understand this.

Israelis have less tolerance for those who have any criticism of Israel, may it be right or wrong. Now, how would you feel if we had such a country?

You're dealing with what passes for logic in Zionist circles.

"Israel? No! Look over there at what someone else is doing! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"

Ten shekels says that Marcy responds to this very post with some tripe about "EVIL MUZLIMBS!!!1"

Except, Israel is the ONLY country in the entire Arab Muslim world that embraces freedom of speech and freedom of protest.

Israeli Arabs have had demonstrations calling for, "Death To Israel"

Try that in any fascist Arab Muslim country and your tongue will be cut out.

Even in so-called moderate Turkey, mere criticism of Turkey is a violation of the law.

Surely, a mental midget such as yourself recognizes this.

Muhammad, shouldn't you be more concerned about the complete absence of human rights and freedom of speech in Arab Muslim countries?

Why can't Arabs and Muslims get their shit together after 1400 years and create democratic governments, like Israel, instead of living lives that are worse than those of camels?

We're not talking about Turkey, we're talking about Israel. Can you stay on-topic for one post? :eusa_eh:

The report observes the grave and ongoing Israeli violations of Palestinian rights, particularly the collective punishment of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip through the ongoing blockade and the brutal invasion of Gaza at the beginning of 2009 which resulted in the killing of more than 1,400 Palestinians, 83 percent of them civilians not taking part in hostilities.

Yo, Muhammad, Allah is a Zionist...

Quran 17:104
And thereafter We [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd.
Allah Akbar! :clap2:

Palestinians support terrorism in electing Hamas and providing safe haven to numerous Pallie terrorist factions, a flagrant violation of international law and, thus, forfeit any rights.

This is how Hamas respects human rights...

Hamas is only terrorists in the third grade name calling circles. They are not terrorists where they were elected.

The so-called "Israel" will end soon. Because injustice doesn't last for long.It's just a matter of time.
