Israel is asking Google and Apple to remove a new game called “Liyla and the Shadows of War,” which portrays Israeli soldiers as murderers and invites users to put themselves in the shoes of a Palestinian girl in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s war against Hamas in the summer of 2014.
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, founder of Shurat HaDin-The Israel Law Center, and who is suing Facebook for allowing incitement to terrorism on its social media site, has little faith that a recent meeting between Facebook executives and Israeli officials will actually result in sufficient action against online incitement.
Fed up with Facebook founder Marc Zuckerberg's refusal to remove online posts that incite terror against Israelis and Jews, Israel's Minister of Internal Security Gilad Erdan said that 'part of the blood of the murdered is on Facebook's hands,' and demanded that the social media network take action.
Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan issued an order on Thursday to close the Musawa television station for six months, saying the Palestinian Authority (PA)-funded channel infringes on Israel’s sovereignty.
Until now, Israel has allowed funerals for terrorists to take place only after midnight and with limited attendees to ensure that the events do not turn into terror-support parades. Unfortunately, these funerals have turned into mass events that incite against Israel and call for more terror.
After two Palestinians murdered four innocent Israelis and injured 17 in Tel Aviv Wednesday night, Israel took a number of immediate security measures including surrounding the Palestinian town from which the terrorists originated, and suspended most special entry permits for Palestinians.
Gilad Erdan that though the tools of the proponents of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and Palestinian terrorists are different, “They are united in their goals, their language of hate and their victims.”
The Palestinian BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) National Committee has sent a petition to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights claiming that Israel has launched "a desperate and dangerous fight" against them.
"The Human Rights Council is only obsessed with the fate of the Palestinians, and prefers to close its eyes to other critical human rights violations. It consistently disregards the human rights of Israelis..." said Israel's ambassador to the UN in Geneva.
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, whose responsibility includes the fight against the anti-Israel boycott movement, addressed a gathering of Jewish leaders and called for “cautious optimism,” and shared several methods in development that are designed to counter BDS activities.
