Netanyahu Falsely Accuses Palestinian Youths of Rape While Ignoring a Sexual Assault Epidemic by Govt. Officials

A Facebook post by the Israeli prime minister vehemently accusing two Palestinian young men of the racially-motivated rape of a vulnerable Jewish woman turned into an embarrassing imbroglio when the truth emerged: Not only had no rape ever occurred, exposing the concocted accusations against the men as the real racially-motivated offense.

Israeli Propagandists Threaten Destruction of Europe as Punishment for Boycotting Israel

new video that was removed just days after being published (see the update at the end of this article to learn why) released by a pro-Israel public relations group has a startling message for Europeans: their continent is about to be obliterated by Islamic armies, and if they don’t stop the movement to boycott Israel, Jerusalem will permit the catastrophe to occur. The video was released yesterday on the Facebook social network by Hallelu, a little-known PR outfit dedicated to improving the international image of the State of Israel, and has already racked up over five thousand video views. Hallelu contracted the services of an Israeli public relations agency called 101 Videos.

Extreme Takeover: Why Many Are Calling Israel's New Government the 'Most Racist' in History

With the announcement that hard-right Avigdor Lieberman would soon use his powerful position as Minister of Defense in the Israeli cabinet to advance additional anti-democratic legislation, members of the old Israeli political establishment could scarcely contain their apprehension. “Lieberman is the new Kahane,” read the title of an op-ed by a former two-time Israeli minister, a reference to the founding father of Israel’s first fascist party.

Shocked By Rise of Jewish Extremism in Israel, Maverick Rabbi Denounces Discriminatory Laws

Rabbis from a liberal stream of Judaism issued this month a blanket disavowal of religious rulings that discriminate against non-Jews. The repudiation comes in response to racist rulings by state-funded Israeli clerics and terror attacks by their followers. In early May, the Rabbinical Assembly’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards, the theological adjudication body of Conservative Jews, voted unanimously to accept the 28-page anti-racist “tshuvah”, or religious responsum, of American-Israeli Rabbi Reuven Hammer.

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, Israel Army Deputy Chief Warns Israeli Society Exhibiting Similarities to 1930s Germany

Across the world and especially in the West, it is widely considered to be highly offensive to suggest that there are similarities between the State of Israel and Nazi Germany, the racist regime responsible for the murder of millions of Jews. But after seven years of a succession of arguably the most right-wing governments in the country’s history, Israelis themselves are beginning to make the shocking comparison with ever-increasing frequency.

Watch: Israelis Demand "A Bullet In The Head" For Palestinians and Leftists At Rally For Killer Soldier

On March 24, 2016, in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, an Israeli military medic handed his helmet to another soldier, cocked his weapon and calmly fired a bullet into the head of a local Palestinian man, then accused of stabbing an Israeli soldier, as he lay wounded and immobile on the ground.

Why a Broad Section of the Israeli Public is Pushing Netanyahu to Defend a Murderer Caught on Video

The apparent execution of a Palestinian attacker in the largest city in the West Bank by an Israeli occupation soldier on the Jewish holiday of Purim has sent shockwaves throughout the world, after a video of the incident went viral. Faced with what would seem to be indisputable evidence that an Israeli soldier shot and killed 21-year-old Abed al-Fattah Yusri al-Sharif more than 10 minutes after he was immobilized and no longer posed any physical threat, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now finds himself in an awkward bind of his own making.

No previous records for racism may have been broken in Israel this week, but the last few days have seen top politicians laying the foundation for future discrimination.

The second week of February 2016 was a banner week for racism in Israel, with shockingly racist rhetoric from Prime Minister Netanyahu, genocidal references from his backbenchers and fulsome attacks on Palestinian leaders from his entire government.

Listing Wages of Home Cleaners by Race? 5 of the Biggest Outrages From Israel This Week

Some of the worst examples of hateful incitement to come out of Israel in the past week were directed against women. These included misogyny toward women who have romantic relationships with non-Jews, and hate for liberal Jews who don’t oppose these couplings. Another example featured the rape culture that runs rampant in the Israeli army. But perhaps the worst example was an advertisement offering the services of female workers, ranked according to a racial hierarchy.

How Israel Covers Up Its Ugly Racial Holy War

The year 2014 will be remembered as a banner year for violence in Israel and Palestine; most of the casualties occurred in the Gaza Strip, and most of these were Palestinian civilians killed by the Israeli army. Six months later, however, these tragic deaths are almost forgotten, chiefly because the powerful propaganda of the Israel lobby is able to explain them away with a well-rehearsed narrative: “Israel only wants to live in peace with its neighbors, but the Palestinians hope to kick us all out of the country, so we have no choice but to retaliate.” Zionist hasbara can be even further condensed, distilled down to just six words: “They hate us for our equality.”
