The government shut down two Arabic-language outlets last week, leaving nearly 30 journalists jobless. The Union of Israeli Journalists: ‘Shutting down media outlets is nearly unheard of in democratic regimes.’



The Union of Journalists in Israel sent a letter to Prime Minister and Communications Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday, protesting the shutting down of two Arabic-language media outlet last week.

According to Chen, the GPO — which is under the auspices of the Prime Minister’s Office and works directly with the Shin Bet intelligence services — actively tracks Sawat al-Haq and PLS48, adding that years ago the two outlets were found to have included inciting messages in their articles (after which journalists from both organizations were denied government-issued press cards). However, the organizations have since changed their ways, paving the way for employees to, once again, obtain press cards.

“In our view, even if a text is published that contains incitement, the proper way to deal with it is to punish the inciters through the criminal justice system, rather than by closing down entire news outlets, firing dozens of journalists who did absolutely nothing wrong, and silencing public discourse,” continued the letter, which was also sent to the public security minister, the interior minister (who is in charge of issuing licenses to newspapers), the head of the GPO, and others.


Your source. Emphasis mine.

I agree. Even if authors were encouraging children to stab strangers in cold blood, it is the writers (and editors) who need to be held accountable.

Umm i have a rebutt of th ereason Why th ejews left jerusallem.


In the year 135 CE, the Romans decided to evict the vast majority of Jews living in the province of Judea, after the Bar Kochba Revolt. The province had seen many insurrections ever since the Romans took over. First with the Sicarii Zealots assassinating many Romans and Roman collaborators, which then built up to the Jewish War form 66 CE to 70CE, and then the Bar Kochba Revolt 65 years later. Rome decided they had enough, so they kicked out most of the Jewish population, and then renamed the province "Syria Palestina" from which we get the word "Palestine" The Romans got the name form the ancient and long extinct enemy of the Jews, the Philistines. They also changed the name of Jerusalem to "Aelia Capitolina"

Some Jews were allowed to remain, but they were in the minority.

there was an earlier expulsion of Jews from Israel in the 6th Century BCE when the Babylonians conquered the region. Most were allowed to return shortly after the Persians conquered the Babylonians. Some did remain in Mesopatamia and Persia, and a few remain there today.


So in actuality it WAS NOT their choice to leave but the ROMANS forcing them to leave.

Some of you may remember this from the 2006 war with Lebanon: Israel's newest PR weapon: The Internet Megaphone

They were getting people to turn on each other and report each other to get anything offensive to or that put Israel in a bad light removed from sites.

This was a real thing and it worked.

Muhahahaha! Perhaps you should have kept reading what happened after that. I'm not surprised no one mentions it, though.

By the mid 300s AD, the Romans had made peace with the Jews again. So around 363AD, the new Roman Emperor Julian allowed the Jews to remake Solomon's Temple. But according to the Jewish accounts, God kept stopping them from rebuilding the Temple. They claim that God made fireballs come from within the Earth to force the workers out; and that God made earthquakes destroy all of the work they'd done on the Temple. Eventually the Jews stopped trying in that time period. (note: look up the other times the 3rd Temple was almost rebuilt to learn even more)

Then, there's the Jewish-Sassanid State that I mentioned before. This was in the early 600s AD. The Jews teamed up with the Persian Sassanids (who were Zoroastrians) in the Sassanid's war against the Byzantines (who were Christians). The Jews & Sassanids conquered Jerusalem & the Sassanids allowed the Jews to reclaim ancient Judea. This state lasted for about 5 years.

Nobody likes to talk about it now though, because the Jews started killing off all of the Christians who were in the territory. They destroyed the churches, monasteries, and every other sign of Christianity in order to make a strictly "Jewish" State. The Sassanid Emperor was furious with them for these atrocities (he didn't want them to go that far), so he kicked them out of Jerusalem. Then the Byzantines crushed them & reconquered the area. The Jewish leadership was so traumatized that they officially abandoned Jerusalem until modern day Zionism, more than 1200 years later. Some Jews stayed behind (now known as some of the Maghrebi Jews), but they're actually discriminated against in modern Israel.

So yes, it was their choice to leave & stay gone. Why don't you guys ever talk about the Jewish-Sassanid State? Is it that you've never heard of it or do you simply not want people to talk about it?

Google Denies Reaching YouTube Monitoring Agreement With Israel



Google denied a report by the Foreign Ministry that it reached an agreement with the Israeli government to jointly monitor YouTube videos that incite people to launch terrorist attacks on Israelis.

Last week, the ministry said that Google, which owns YouTube, had agreed to a joint mechanism to monitor online materials – including clips that encourage violent attacks on Israelis – following a meeting between Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely and executives of the multinational Internet company.

On Monday, the company declared that no such agreement had been reached at the meeting.
