Presentation av partierna i parlamentsvalet

Round two: ToI’s guide to the 30 parties that want your vote, again (TOI)

"Everything you need to know about the front-runners, the new alliances, the parties in danger of stumbling under the electoral threshold, and the earnest yet hopeless unknowns

On Tuesday, Israelis head to the ballot box in what could herald a repeat of the gridlock after April’s national vote, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition and then sent the country back to the polls in order to prevent his chief rival, Blue and White chair Benny Gantz, from having the opportunity to try and form a coalition of his own.

With public interest in the second election at a record low, parties have largely waited until the final weeks of the campaign to push their message to voters, focusing primarily on dissuading the public from voting for their rivals on both sides of the political aisle.

The total of 30 factions is down from the last election cycle, when a record 47 parties registered for the April 9 vote. America somehow gets by with two political parties for its 300 million-strong population. We fewer than nine million Israelis, with our over-abundance of political democracy, evidently need dozens of choices..."

PA:s kulturminister förnekar judarnas historia

Nothing proves it, they have no connection to history (PMW)
"One of the central elements of the Palestinian narrative is the negation of the entire Jewish history in the Land of Israel in general and in Jerusalem in particular. Despite numerous sources and archeological finds proving the opposite, the Palestinian Authority regularly repeats this claim because it is the basis for the PA's denial of Israel's right to exist. Recently, the PA Minister of Culture emphasized this Palestinian lie, claiming Israel has "no connection" to Jerusalem, history, geography or even to the future. He then asserted the second fundamental Palestinian historical revision intended to create a Palestinian right to exist. He claimed that Palestinians were Canaanites with a 6,000-year history in the land: ..."

Facebook har valt att stöda Fatahs terroristpropaganda

Palestinian Media Watch har dokumenterat hur Fatah använder Facebook till att sprida hatpropaganda mot judar och Israel. Fatah prisar och förhärligar terrorister som mördat judar och framställer dem som hjältar och förebilder.
Trots att PMW har tagit kontakt med Brian Fishman, som är  Director of Facebook’s Global Counterterrorism Policy Team, har inte sidan stoppats. Tvärtom! Facebook väljer att fortsättningsvis ge Fatah rätt att använda Facebook . Mord på judar är tydligen inget problem för Facebook.

Brian Fishman säger i sitt svar till PMW att Fatahs sida inte strider mot Facebooks regler men att "han förstår att den kan vara stötande och obehaglig för dig därför  vill vi  hjälpa dig att se mindre av sådant... du kan blockera Fatahs facebook sida direkt eller sluta att följa den".

It doesn't go against one of our specific Community Standards... We understand that it may still be offensive or distasteful to you, so we want to help you see less of things like it... You can block [Fatah's Facebook page] directly, or you may be able to unfriend or unfollow them.”

Blunda är alltså rådet från Facebook! Tyvärr är det en sådan värld vi lever i!

Stop the Fatah - Facebook Terror Promotion Partnership (PMW)

-Whereas in 2018 Facebook was an unwitting partner in Fatah’s terror promotion, in 2019 Facebook is a partner in Fatah's terror promotion by choice

-Facebook’s mission is to “build community and bring the world closer together,” not to build easy communication lines to promote terror. For Facebook to allow its platform to be used this way is incomprehensible and abhorrent.

-PMW again demands that Facebook immediately close down Fatah’s official page before more innocent lives are lost to murderers who are inspired and drawn to terror by Fatah’s Facebook page...

Fatah-Facebook Terror Promotion Partnership
January - June 2019
  • Fatah continues to promote terror on Facebook in 2019
  • Facebook has chosen to willingly be a central tool for Fatah’s terror promotion
By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Fatah used Facebook to glorify 17-year-old suicide bomber Ayyat Al-Akhras as “magnificent”
Self-sacrificing fighter Ayyat Al-Akhras... blew herself up in a shopping center
of the Zionists” - “A Magnificent Martyrdom-seeker.”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, March 28, 2019]
Fatah repeatedly posted photos of 19-year-old murderer Omar Abu Laila on Facebook
in the weeks after he murdered 2 Israelis on March 17, 2019
 “Omar, you have not died... we are following in your footsteps.”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, two weeks after the murders, March 30, 2019]
Executive Summary
Violence and terror are central to Fatah’s mission. Fatah uses Facebook to glorify terror attacks in which Israelis are murdered and to present the terrorist murderers as role models. Fatah also uses its Facebook page to inform Palestinians that one of the things that remain special about Fatah is its continued adherence to terror.

Oroligt vid Gazagränsen

Veckoslutet var våldsammare än på länge vid Gazagränsen. Över 6000 personer deltog i upploppen och kastade granater och brandbomber mot de israeliska soldaterna vid gränsen. Flera försök gjordes att skada gränsstängslet.
Palestinierna använde också en drönare för att bomba israeliska soldater.
Två palestinier dödades i upploppen och två som försökte ta sig över gränsen arresterades.
Fem raketer sköts från Gaza mot Israel, ingen skadades av raketerna.

2 Palestinian teens said killed in ‘especially violent’ Gaza border clashes

Uppvigling till våldsamheter fortsätter

Uppvigling till våldsamheter fortsätter från de palestinska ledarna på grund av Netanyahus besök i Hebron. Staden där patriarkerna är begravda är en av de heligaste städerna inom judendomen.

PA: Netanyahu "invaded" and "defiled" Hebron - it's an "obvious war" (PMW)
"The Palestinian Authority continues to incite violence. Following yesterday's visit by Israeli leaders to Hebron, the PA is now saying that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's presence there was an act of "obvious war" and that he "defiled" the city:

"The [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs emphasized that [Israeli] occupation Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu]'s defilement of Hebron and the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) is nothing but obvious war, in which he has declared his blatant hatred towards the Palestinian presence in Hebron and the Ibrahimi Mosque, which is a purely Islamic mosque."

Palestinska skolböcker fyllda med hat mot judar och Israel


T.ex. beskrivs massakern i Munchen 1972 där 11 israeliska idrottsmän dödades som "ett tillslag mot sionistiska intressen utomlands".
