Operation Guardian of the Walls began by Israel after an increased Islamic incitement, as the Iran linked Jihadi terror groups Hamas controlling Gaza and (to a lesser capability Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) on May 10, 2021, began bombarding Israeli civilians with rockets at the last Muslims' days of Ramadan.
Prior to the firing of rockets, a wave of Arabs attacking Jews inside Israel rose sharply, (mainly against pious Jews who mostly do not serve in the IDF) especially following incitement in Arab Palestinian mainstream since at least April 2. Ahead of Muslims' Ramadam.
As these operations are:
Terrorists target all Israelis, IDF targets terrorists and their infrastructures, while making efforts not to hit those non involved, yet, the Arab-Islamist side has the vested interest to see about civilian deaths, in order to gather media sympathy and boost support in the Islamic world.
During the clashes between the IDF and Islamists in Gaza, (beginning on May 11), many Israeli Arabs also turned against their Jewish neighbors Using mosques to facilitate attacks often the violence accompanied by Islamic cry "Khybar". And 'Kill the J..s.'
Repeated overall racist motive Arab anti-Jewish attacks inside Israel
(Lack of proportionality. Even the State Attorney, criticized of pro-Arab bias, about indictments made in operation of Guardian of the Walls it responded directly on the question of symmetry: "There were a significant lower number, violent actions by citizens of Jewish origin." 85% filed against Arabs vs 15%, Arab massive attacks [despite constituting only about 21% of the population] with many in Arab leadership silent The "thunderous stutter of the Arab MKs fuels" the racist rioters. Worse, local Arab leaders even egging on, were less reported by Israeli media as in less common retaliation on an Arab, [after a day earlier: An Arab driver made his way through Jewish demonstrators in Lod. He accelerated and according to the protesters almost ran over them. ], thought he was about to ram into Jews, a man bites dog event, and it was sharply denounced even by right wingers. Overplayed in Israeli media. Some have summed it as in a ratio of 94% to 1% reporting differences.
The Arab anti-Jewish violence caused some 400 Jewish families to leave, in the city of Lod alone.
The chain of events indicates not only that the violence was a pre-planned Arab initiative; it was instigated despite a series of steps that the Israeli government took to calm things down, steps that had a heavy political and public cost.
There's been an explosion of Anti-Semitism, targeting Jews, in Europe, in the US and in Canada. Some adding their cry of "Allah u Akhbar." Often under "free palestine" flag, excuse. Initially, some media falsely described the sheer racist attacks. The AJC attributed the sharp rise due to vitriol, extreme terminology used by anti-Israel politicians.
Notable arrest was, Arab from Brooklyn. NY Waseem Awawdeh. over a horrific lynch, by some 6 Islamic bigots upon a man wearing a Kippah, hitting him while on the ground, the men saying, in substance, ’Dirty Jew. Filthy Jew. F--k Israel. Hamas is going to kill you. Go back to Israel.’ Waseem said, after being arrested, that he would do it again, to which a journalist Tweeted: Because he grew up brainwashed to hate a specific group of people. Days later, another Arab from NY was arrested in that beating, Faisal Elezzi. On July 20, 2021 three Arab-Muslims: Daniel Shaukat, 20, of Bensonhurst, Haider Anjam, 21, of Midwood, and Ashan Azad, 19, of Midwood, were charged in hate crimes in Brooklyn, NY. The defendants allegedly stated, “Kill all the Jews,” demanded that a Jewish man say, “Free Palestine,” punched him when he refused, and then chased him and a friend while holding a cricket bat. The events happened in May.
On May 23, at the masses of anti-Israel protesters in London, some Muslims held hate-filled signs such as, viciously belittling the Holocaust, including: "surpasses Hitler". In Chicago, on May 23, 2021, an Arab mob yelled "kill the J..s" in a rally. On July 3, a 'visibly Jewish' man was subjected to tirade on London bus. One holding a knife shouting: 'I will slit your throat for Palestine.'

- January, 2021. Khybar calls by some Arab Muslims against Jews, as Arab on Arab violent crime rises exponentially.
With the rise of violence within the Arab society in Israel (Israeli Arabs among themselves - violent crimes in this sector disproportionately high even earlier years, it has only risen even higher in recent years. Arab leadership has been also blamed: "As long as the Arab demonstrators continue to wave PLO flags in their demonstrations, please do not come to ... with complaints." In one example after Arab politicians urged police for even more action (#arablivesmatter due to Arab on Arab crime), at the large Arab village, Umm el Fahm, Arabs demonstrated with PLO, Hamas and Al Qaeda flags, called for the police to leave. The demonstration was under a label protesting the so called "murders virus". The refusal to cooperate with the police, and blaming the violence on a "virus." Some pointed out: That seeing Arab politicians like Ayman Odeh coming to demonstrate about the violence in Arab crime is ridiculous, he voted against the entry of police stations into villages, against the entry of the GSS to eradicate weapons in Arab society. Now he is complaining about helplessness ... Unlike in dealing with Israeli Jews, Israeli police is super ensitive not to handle the Arab sector harshly as well as to court's often soft approach).
Power: Iran, Hamas
- Power: Iran, Hamas.
In late January/2021, Iran was seeking even in more desperation to strengthen alliance between the "axis of resistance," celebrated by Hezbollah. Yet, it was obvious the dilemma of Hamas, risk it takes in restoring full relationships with Syria, losing support among its people.
- Between April 2 and April 10, 2021, the less radical Arab "Palestinian" authority, the PA, incited, especially the youths for violence.
In the days before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, PA TV repeatedly broadcast a video inciting terror:
“I fired my shots, I threw my bomb. I detonated, detonated, detonated my [explosive] belts… My brother, throw my blood on the enemy like bullets”
The video was broadcast 20 times between April 2 and April 10
The broadcast of songs promoting hate and violence immediately after animated children's shows should not be seen as a coincidence, but rather as part of the PA's indoctrination of children
Violence has once again flared up in Jerusalem. The outburst of violence was not spontaneous. It was not a response to any Israeli action. Rather it came on the heels of intensive and focused Palestinian Authority incitement to violence and terror.
The Muslim month of Ramadan started on the evening of April 12.
In the days before Ramadan, from April 2 through April 10, official PA TV broadcast a terror-promoting song and accompanying visuals of violence at least 20 times. Focusing on influencing the youth, PA TV also broadcast the song during the 4:00-5:00 p.m. time slot for children's programming.
...the uptick in violence since the start of the Muslim month of Ramadan in mid-April didn’t simply emerge out of nowhere. Ditto for the so-called “TikTok intifada” – the latest Palestinian fad of beating up Orthodox Jews and sharing videos of the physical aggression on the popular platform.
PA television was full of speeches and music videos promising glory for those who killed Jews.
Explained at the time:
From the Mufti, through Arafat to Abu Mazen: The lighting up Palestinian street with the aim of "saving al-Aqsa" is nothing new, and its purpose is to serve as a band-aid for the failures of the Palestinian leadership
(Al Aqsa in danger? | Temple Mount Photo: Haim Zach, GPO)The recent conduct of the head of the Palestinian Authority, the "Rais" Abu Mazen, is indicative of the hysteria, lack of control and pressure he is under. This conduct is not surprising and continues a familiar and well-known pattern of action from the past, according to which the Arabs raise Jerusalem "high" and incite against the State of Israel, the Zionists and the Jews, during Ramadan and whenever there is internal political or governmental distress among them. It is good to have the State of Israel and the Zionists who rule Jerusalem so that there will be someone to blame and someone to consume the accumulated anger, in the absence of a responsible leader even if he looks like an 'adult.'
Pure racist attacks
- In April 2021, at least since the 14th at Muslims' Ramadan days, a wide trend among racist Arabs attacking Jews unprovoked and bragging about it on social media intensified. The clips increased incitement in the Arab sector "The embodiment of antisemitic racism." No "protest", but pure Nazi type laughs. The trend was also blamed on Israeli Arab politicians, Knesset members' decades of instigating, while "these young Arabs .. live a life of abundance in one of the most comfortable countries in the Middle East." The victims were almost all ultra orthodox, pious, haredim who by in large do not serve in Israeli army. Police were warned violent riots will erupt afterwards. In April-17, it was promoted by a channel identified with the "Palestinian" Islamic Jihad. The clips by the racist attackers generated many "likes" by Muslim bigots. Some then carried out lynching towards the end of April.
- The throwing a cup of boiling coffee at an ultra-Orthodox man passing through the Nablus gate. And his friend filming it. "Film his face," he shouted.
- The 23-year-old man who was convicted of injuring two Jews in Jerusalem for racist motives. The indictment in which the young man admitted stated that in April, he was driving his vehicle carrying a sharp object with him. When he noticed the two making their way to the Western Wall, he decided to attack them for racist motives. So, blocking their way, shouting at them "Allah Akbar" and hitting them in the face with the sharp object.
- The Arab lynching of Haredi Jew, Y. Gerdi (Apr 22, 2021), who stood in traffic jams and they threw stones at his car, broke the window." They continued beating him as he laid on the ground. and burned his car. He was wounded in all parts of his body.
- As a Jew was walking his dog in (Shimon HaTzadik Sheikh Jarrah area), a racist Arab mob physically attack him "he is a Jew, he is a Jew!" (May/24) while shrieking terrifying outbursts.
- At times, attacker boasting to police of its racist motive. Such as Arab attacker coming from Temple Mount on Via Dolorosa.
At least 53 Arabs were arrested already within 10 days (of the increased wave) on various acts. The wide racist trend was largely ignored by anti-Jewish Haaretz. (Not merely anti-Israel who is also apologetic for Arab rerror and has a twisted narrative in racism.).
At the Lag-ba'Omer tragedy in Meron of April-2021, while 44 Haredim (who overwhelmingly avoid serving in the IDF and some were not even Israelis) including several children lost their lives, Hezbollah supporters, "pro-Palestinian" social media celebrated Meron deaths.
The trend went on, and on June 12, 2021, a young Arab Lui Stlyah (Loui Stliah) was arrested as he attacked undercover policemen (in Haredi ultra-Orthodox disguise) on racist motive.
The hateful attacking trend continued such as in July, 2021, for example.
One of the Garbua (Garbou, Garboa) Arab Muslim brothers who both brutally attacked a Jew on April 18, 2021 - while shouting their racist ethnic cleansing that "Jews won't live in Jaffa", in 2014 he wrote admiringly of Hitler.
End of Apr, beginning in May-2021:
Arab racist attacks increase in its severity, before the Operation Guardian of the Walls.
- The two Arab sanitation workers arrested after throwing stones out of the garbage truck at Jews because of racist motives.
- The racist group: May 9 lynching minutes a young man after he proposed to his fiancee, and attemoted arson targeting Jews on May 11, all: "for ideological-nationalist motives because they were Jews."
In a piece "Antisemitism in Acre is reminiscent of darker times," local journalist debunked lefty excuses. Pointing also to his mayor in the mixed city of Acre actually investing more resources for Arabs than for Jews and still the elephant in the room is Arab nationalism and Islamic intolerance elements behind the massive violence. Reminding, the hateful attacks go on: "Since the May riots, the antisemitic harassment and violence has continued. Our children’s schools have been the targets of violence. Young Arab boys regularly throw stones at Jewish school children, spit and curse them. After 7 p.m., Jews do not walk in the city center or the beach promenade. They are scared of being attacked by Arab thugs. Every Friday night, when religious Jews walk to synagogues in the city center, Arab youths regularly harass them, insult and humiliate them."
Al Aqsa association
The "Al Aqsa association", linked to the Southern Islamic movement and to the United Arab List, was behind the attempts to ferment in Operation Guardian of the Walls.
On April 25, 2021, after some 11 days of raging racist Arab violence targeting Jews, especially those known to be, by in large, avoiding IDF draft, Omar Shakir (with a history of anti-Israel bigotry for years, by now heading HRW branch), reposted a photo, not for related recent events but from 2015 - whereby Israeli security arrests an Arab rioter and escorted a Jewish victim of Arab rioters - under the headline "Israel's discriminatory [sic] rules summed up in a photo." Which again tells you about his support for racist Arab violence and mischaracterizing security and safety in derogatory terms. Despite being called out for misplaced old photo, as of months later, he still refused to remove tweet.
Preceding TikTok terror
In Feb 2021, an Arab attacked a Hasidic Jew for no reason. The Arab attacker hit him in the head, kicked and cursed and even threw him on a vehicle that was at the scene.
The increased racist outbursts trend by Arabs especially accompanied by filming it, picked up speed in late March, mostly since mid-April and on. In March 24, it was reported of two Arab bloggers going around at the Wailing Wall, choosing to call all Jewish visitors as "settlers" and broadcasting to a half a million followers anti-Semitic hate against Jews. "They are not human," the racist Arab says there.
- On April 10, 2021, on the heels of Jews purchasing houses in Silwan area, Muslims in Jerusalem, through its former Mufti, Sheikh Akrama Tsabari, (with a history of anti-Semitic incitement), issued "holy" order [Fatwa] which forbade Muslims from selling houses to Jews. Already by next day, "An Arab tries to murder his Jewish neighbors with an ax, today in the Muslim Quarter."
Property dispute, the excuse
- Towards end of April, dispute between Jewish owners of houses in Sheikh Jarrah and a few Arab families, who never had the titles to the properties, refusing to evacuate was used by inciters to push for violence. Arabs called for racist ethnic cleansing there from Jews. On May 5, Hamas icon, Mohammed Deif "warned" Israel. Indeed, it intensified, on May 6.
"The claim that Israeli law permits Jews to reclaim ownership of lands they owned prior to 1948 but denies Palestinians such a right is false in every particular."
Fact, it was the Arabs who uprooted the Jews in the old city of Jerusalem in 1948.
The was a cruel ethnic cleansing by the armed Arabs of the pious Jews in Jerusalem. The Jews of the old city, the dwelling of their families in Jerusalem going back for generations, were given one hour to pack. It has been documented: the Arab Legion’s scorched-earth tactics that razed and burned to the ground every structure there, including all its synagogues and yeshivahs. The Arabs expelled all of the city’s residents, mainly defenseless, old Orthodox Jews. They were given about an hour to vacate homes that most extended families had lived in for centuries.  The Jordanian commander, Abdullah el-Tal, boasted to his superiors:
"For the first time in 1,000 years not a single Jew remains in the Jewish Quarter. Not a single building remains intact. This makes the Jews' return here impossible."
Arab-Palestinian long-time human rights activist:
This dispute is not actually about four houses in East Jerusalem. This is about Hamas seeing a chance to seize the narrative and increase its own influence and control over Palestinians in Jerusalem. Don’t buy their fake news and let them dilute their own blame. In the coming days, Jews and Muslims are both likely to die because Hamas saw political upside in violence. Don’t forget it.
Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood's Arab activist's role model is Dalal Mughrabi - terrorist murderer at most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978. She and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway and murdered 37 of the civilian passengers, 12 of them children, while wounding over 70. The Fatah issued her a congratulatory message: "May you live as a rebel defending our Jerusalem, like your role model Dalal Mughrabi."
According to her social media posts, Mughrabi is El Kurd’s “role model.” A recently posted photo by Palestinian political party Fatah also featured El Kurd with her Dalal Mughbrai phone cover, taking a selfie. The caption praised both El Kurd and Mughrabi explicitly. Yet when this post was reported, Facebook first refused to remove it, and only after several days was it finally taken down, with no additional explanation or update provided.Muna El Kurd, the Sheikh Jarrah activist who’s made international headlines with her brother, had at least five posts removed within the span of two weeks, according to updates received from Facebook. One of El Kurd’s removed posts featured a picture of Hitler, and at least four of her posts featured the glorification of Dalal Mughrabi, a Palestinian terrorist responsible for the death of 38 Israelis, including 13 children, in the Coastal Road massacre.
OverviewMohammed El-Kurd has glorified terrorists as martyrs, celebrated the murder of civilians, and ethnic cleansing, and believes all Israelis are terrorists, spread incitement and whitewashed the Hamas terrorist organization. 
El-Kurd has also spread hatred of America and Israel, demonized Zionists and promoted hatred of the police.
In 2021, El-Kurd spread misinformation about Israel during interviews on major U.S. television networks CNN and MSNBC, as well as on social media...
El-Kurd retweeted a May 19, 2021 tweet that quoted Kwame Ture: "The United States is the greatest de-humanizer in the world, and Israel is nothing but a finger of the United States of America. It de-humanizes all over the world, and our fight today is a fight for humanity."
Kwame Ture, otherwise known as Stokely Carmichael, was an organizer in the U.S. Civil Rights movement, “Honorary Prime Minister" of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and an advocate for revolutionary socialist Pan-Africanism. Ture reportedly said "I have never admired a white man, but the greatest of them, to my mind, was Hitler." ...
On May 16, 2021, El-Kurd also tweeted: “While settlers can drive into a crowd of Palestinians have full backing and support by police, Palestinians are killed extrajudicially. #ApartheidIsrael"
On May 10, 2021, Palestinian rioters threw stones at an Israeli vehicle, injuring the Jewish driver who then lost control of his car and swerved off the road, hitting several people.
Rioters continued to pelt the driver with stones and approached the vehicle, attempting to attack the driver, before an Israeli police officer arrived at the scene and fired warning shots to disperse the mob.
On May 16, 2021, El-Kurd posted on Twitter: “The IOF shot & reportedly killed a man after his car crashed into a police car in Sheikh Jarrah. We expect increased police brutality & isolation from the city as the blockade of the neighborhood continues. Watch militarized police aim to shoot the press attempting to film."
On May 16, 2021, a Palestinian driver rammed his car into a temporary police roadblock in Sheikh Jarrah, injuring seven Israeli officers. The attack was captured on video.
El-Kurd included in his Twitter post a video of the car-ramming that was edited to misrepresent the event.
On May 19, 2021, El-Kurd tweeted: “Even if ‘Hamas sent a 7yo girl to the border’—which it didn’t, & that’s only believable to those who are deeply racist—a fascist murderous terrorist IOF pig pulled the trigger and killed that girl, not Hamas. This is a pervert’s ‘she was asking for it’ argument."
El-Kurd’s tweet was responding to one of his own, a few minutes earlier, which included CNN video reporting [00:00:19] on Hamas sending a costumed 7 year-old girl to the Gaza border fence in March 2018.
Contrary to El-Kurd’s claim that the girl was killed, Israeli forces returned the child safely to her parents.
On May 24, 2021, El-Kurd featured in a Democracy Now! Video posted to YouTube saying [00:02:35] Israel was “senselessly carpet bombing a strip where people, two million people, are besieged."During OGW, Israel used targeted strikes on terrorist targets and did not carry out a "carpet bombs of Gaza."
El-Kurd and his sister Muna live in one of these properties in the neighborhood of Shimon Hatzaddik/Sheikh Jarrah, and both were arrested for participating in violent protests essentially calling for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the area. Furthermore, while El-Kurd’s claim to fame is that he “reports” on happenings in Jerusalem, he often simply disseminates lies. On May 10, for instance, El-Kurd posted a video to Twitter that he claimed proved Israelis were “readying themselves” to “invade” the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
But the clip actually showed Jews praying at the Western Wall.
El-Kurd also spread a fake story about a stabbing attack by “settlers.”
D. Greenfield reminds the historic events about the properties, concluding: when AOC, Warren, Sanders, Tlaib, Omar, the UN, and the Biden administration treat the occupiers of Sheikh Jarrah as the rightful owners, they’re defending ethnic cleansing. And it should be called what it is.
Masses at al-Aqsa and security
- At the same time, fearing violence in Al Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount are), Israel restricted quota of massive Muslim prayers, (usually by limiting youngsters), and this restriction was used for violence against Israeli police. Local Islamist influencers hyped incitement. April–May: Agitated also by Hamas and even Jordan and "moderate" Fatah, "Demonstrators called for 'blood and fire to defend al Aqsa' and for Iran to 'bomb Tel Aviv,' but they voiced no slogans about the establishment of a Palestinian state or Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine."  The powerful libel of 'Al-Aqsa in danger' since the time of Haj Amin al-Husseini (whose propaganda in the 1920s included disseminating fake made up photomontage of a Zionist flag supposedly flying over it), has been revived. Prominent Arab politician, Knesset member Ayman Odeh expressed hope the violence spreads to a full Intifadah. In the midst of the Arab riots, Ayman Odeh even interviewed with a Hezbollah supporter channel and has justified the Arab riots. Another prominent Arab politician, Knesset member Mansour Abbas of the United Arab List, who, unlike major icons in Arab society did condemn the violence, however days after the ceasefire, he's attended a tent by radical 'Northern branch of Islamic Movement,' set up for Sheikh Kamal Chatib who encouraged martyrdom at al Aqsa mosque.
Hamas targets Israeli civilians using own civilians to create victims and media plays along
'under the supervision of Iranian experts,' Gaza's government, Jihadi Hamas (and the PIJ) began firing rockets, quickly stepping it up to many rockets in a short period of time over populated areas, causing many to penetrate despite the iron dome defense,  within days it fired thousands, about 3,000 in less than the first week alone within an average of around 400-500 fired a day, aimed at Israeli civilians, typically using its own population as human shields,
 (and even killing civilians from its population in the process, 1 in 7 rockets that Hamas fires lands in Gaza, ) VS humane Israeli army who "moves Gazan civilians out of the way of attacks on Hamas." risking skipping terror target for fear of children being there,
The Hamas terror-tunnels have been built intentionally beneath civilian areas. And the IDF had to maneuver very carefully how to eliminate terror actors hiding there. Top Hamas engineers were eliminated.
As Arab-Palestinian long time human rights activist (previously working at Betselem, before it became a total anti-Israel unreliable source of sheer propaganda) asserted:
“The main difference between Israel and Hamas: Israel is using missiles to protect its people while Hamas is using its people to protect its rockets,” Eid told The Algemeiner. “Hamas does not care where these missiles land.”Eid estimates based on his own Palestinian sources in the Gaza Strip that more than 50 Palestinians died because of errant rockets by the Hamas that were targeted towards Israel but which landed in Gaza. According to the Israeli army, about 4,340 rockets were fired by Hamas toward Israel during the 11 days of hostilities, with 640 of them falling within Gaza.
Even biased NPR in its anti-Israel reporting piece cited the fact: ...In Gaza City, fully intact buildings stood right next to where others had been flattened. One building looked like a layer cake, with one story stacked on top of the other. Which proves the humane nature routine and nethods, precision. Israeli Security Agency warn Arab-Palestinian farmer from being in a dangerous area of the Gaza-Israel border is an example.
As in a nutshell, the classic example described the conflict:
The IDF, attempting to warn about an impending strike, pleading for the Arab man in Gaza to evacuate the building before the bombing because civilians are present. This is the conversation that took place:
- "I can’t get all of the people out I need at least two hours to get them out," the Palestinian says.
- "Listen, we are going to bomb the building," the member of the IDF replies.
- "You want to bomb? Bomb whatever you want," the man responds.
- "No, brother, we need to do everything we can so you don’t die,” the IDF member says.
- "We want to die," the Palestinian answers.
- "But you have a responsibility for children’s lives," the Israeli pushes back.
- "If the children need to die then they’ll die," the Palestinian counters.
- "God forbid, God forbid, what do you want, to die?!" the soldier asks.
The Iranian hands. Days before the barrage of rockets, on May 6, IRGC General Asghar Emami said that "Iran Does Not Need To Send Missiles Or Planes To Attack Israel, Through The Resistance Axis, We Can Plough Israeli Cities With Mortars; When We Want American Concessions, We Can Tighten Our Grip Around Israel's Throat."
Arab anti-Jewish attacks inside Israel
- While the afromentioned jihadists pounded Israeli civilians, at the same time, inside Israel, all over, openly racist in nature, especially where there is an Arab population, there were anti-Jewish vicious attacks, with Jihadi sentiments cries. Including on at least 5 houses of worship which shows Arab Islamic sheer hatred. In Lod for example, masses of Arabs ("hundreds of Arabs, adults, women, no mob and not a few children, they came and just looked for blood") attacked their Jewish neighbors, shouting "Itbach al Yahud" (death to J...). In some Arab towns there were Islamic calls to murder Jews. From the brutality, in another city, Arab beat the skull of young man with knives. While Israeli police handled Arabs with 'kid gloves'. (Israeli Arabs are not burning synagogues, schools, yeshivot, Jewish-owned stores, cars and homes because of the so-called "occupation." They are not lynching Jews that fall in their paths because of the so-called "settlements." ) All the while, media, even much inside Israel white washed Arab raw racist violence. Part of a wider trend of preferential treatment prevalent in Israel towards Arabs over Jews.
It led activist in 2021/22 stating: "Today the mixed Arab-Jewish cities are the most antisemitic cities in the world."
She also added: "The calamity is, that the same Arab neighbors who stood in their home and directed the ravines for the cars and houses of Jews and marked them, it is 1929 events and it broke deep. The fact that mothers and grandmothers directing the rioters towards the cars - is the disaster, because I believe in shared lives."
- In Jaffa, Arabs lobbed incendiary device at a family they thought it was Jewish. Injuring Arab Child and slightly injuring his sister. Even after it was found out and publicized that Arabs perpetrated it, still hateful Arab politician in Israel pushed for fake news as if it was done by Jews.
First fatality of Arab lynching was Yigal Yehoshua. A group of 8 Arabs, decided to harm Jews for nationalist motives, for this purpose, they erected makeshift checkpoints and to stone Jews' vehicles; they identified Yehoshua as a Jew and stoned him with rocks and at close range. In addition, there were also attempted murder cases. ("clashes" myth: While there was overplaying in lefty media in Israel over an isolated reprisal coming only later on and against someone they thought to be ramming into Jews, it has downplayed the initiators Arab minority on Jewish majority polulation and its wide phenomenon. ) While only Jews' houses of worship were attacked by Arab-Muslims and no Muslim mosque was attacked, an Arab penalist in Israeli media, tried to claim some "balance." He attempted to dangerously instigate by lying, inventing, creating fake news. 
Second fatal victim was 84 scientist, as a result of arson by Arabs in a hotel in Acre. Arabs targeting Jews by setting fire to Efendi hotel, whereby fatally injuring 84-years-old Aby Har Even who weeks later died of his wounds. 
Third fatal victim was Destau Bisset (person of colour). As two Arabs, rammed into him, dragged him, dropped him on the floor and dragged him to unconsciousness. The two Arabs tried then to hit a couple too, without success. Again, because victim was identified as a Jew.
- Arab rioters attacked an ultra-Orthodox.
(Very identifiable as a Jew per his clothes as ultra Orthodox). They beat, kicked him and punched him. He needed medical attention.
- Abd al-'Aziz' Amrani accused lynching attempt in the Negev. The indictment against him attributes to him offenses of terrorist act and causing racist acts.
- Six residents of the Negev are accused of participating in violrnt riots, act for a nationalist-racist motive."
- A teacher at a school in Jerusalem attacks a racist motive in the Old City. Baha Aladdin Najib hit the victim on the left shoulder and as a result his glasses and hat fell off. As he bent down to pick them up Najib hit him once more and continued to follow him as he hit his head.
- Two young Arabs from Acre were arrested on suspicion of assaulting students on racial grounds in attacking Jewish schoolchildren in the city.
- Five Arab-Israelis are charged with a series of terrorist offenses and racist assaults, for attacking [Benny] Beni Salman in Haifa May 13, 2021, after asking him if he was a Jew. The Arabs shouted 'kill him it's a Jew'.  Mr Salman was about to visit his mother.
- Elderly Jew attacked. Arab rioters beat him mercilessly and abused him for a long time.
- Maniac J..., this is our area": 6 accused of assault on a racial basis in Haifa.
- Mor Janashvili, whom Arabs identified as a Jew, fell victim to a lynching in Acre by an Arab mob, beaten with clubs and planks, stabbed in the head. (Unreliable Haaretz omitted 'racist motive' In its English version vs its Hebrew version which is quoting the charge in court on 'racist motive'. Josh Breiner, Haarerz, Jun 24, 2021)
- The Arab neighbor pointed and shouted - "this is the Yahud's (Jew's) van": 240 vehicles were set on fire during riots.
Attacks were often with Jihadi genocidal cries of "Itbakh al Yahud" and burning houses of worship. It was after a trend of racist random attacks by Arabs against Jews, randomly, which already preceded the bombardment by Hamas. On May 16, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades pushed to ramp it up even further.
On the sweeping intolerance dominant at Arab minority in democratic Israel: The entire Arab leadership Lod, such as all the clergy of the Great Mosque, sided with the terrorist cell when they were released from prison. Among the arrested in June was the Imam at largest mosque in Lod. Imam Elbaz inciting speech on May 10 ignited a spiral of bloody violence.

This time, the Jewish public will learn the lessons of the violent rampage, the manifestations of hostility and the assassination ethos that go with it among tens of thousands of Israeli Arabs, in dozens of cities throughout the country. The severity of the phenomenon focuses on the overwhelming majority refraining from curbing the hostile and violent elements, and fearing to disassociate themselves from the message they are sending to the Jews. Dozens of their spokespeople, from Knesset members to journalists and participants in the riots, who spoke to the Jewish public, flat out lied, made poor excuses and did not accept responsibility, with a particularly repulsive combination of aggression and whining. Many of them were not even willing to settle for the deliberately false and distorted symmetry that the journalists offered them, regarding "the extremists on both sides". Such a determination would be plausible had Arab society and its spokespeople revolted against the many thousands of rioters and haters amongst them, similar to the absolute renunciation of the vast majority of the Jewish public and almost all its spokespeople from the handful of vandals on the margins of society...It is a mistake to focus on the Arab rioters who raged in Lod, Ramla and Acre, attacked their Jewish neighbors, burned and looted their property and endangered lives. Much worse are the hundreds of serious incidents all over the country, some of them substantial, where riled up young Arabs chanted, among other things, "Khyber, Khyber Ya-Yehud, Jaish Muhammad Sawf Ya'ud" ("Khaybar, Khaybar o Jews, the army of Muhammad will return"). During these protests, they actually laid siege to Arad, threatened Jews in dozens of centers in the Galilee and the Negev and tried to lynch an IDF soldier in Jaffa. These are blatant manifestations of joining the enemy during war. This is terrorism in the original sense of the term: imposing fear on tens of thousands of Jews, who fear for their lives, well-being and property.
Worth mentioning, the Arab violent attacker on a Jew in Jaffa in April showed on Facebook he's admiring Hitler.
The other Iranian hand: Hezbollah
Fake news, to incite
Among Hamas' distributing fake or manipulated news and images already earlier, there was a footage of a burning tree on the Temple Mount, to enrage the Israeli-Arab public. It was a tree, Hamas itself set ablaze the portrayed it as though this was part of a campaign by radical Jews to take over the Temple Mount.
In addtion, the operation Guardian of the Walls was characterized by a murky wave of Fake News. The Palestinians, Hamas and also the PA, ran pictures of children who were allegedly killed in Gaza and these children were killed in Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere. There was no one to report these things. Following false posts, people take to the streets to express solidarity with the Palestinians, as we have seen in Europe and the United States. It is impossible to know where this is going, it may be that even Biden got Fake News.
Some staged horror pictures or those taken out of context and also in incorrect information. One notable example of this is a picture of a boy kneeling with his shirt stained with blood. It was shared for example by a tweeter.., which has about 20,000 followers, and has won thousands of likes and hundreds of shares.
Hamas has posted a recording, falsely attributing it to one of its kidnapped hostages it holds.
Students exposed fake social media reports on Israel-Gaza, to set record straight.
Anti-Semitism under cloak of "pro-Palestinian"
- Arab-Islamic "free-palestine" and such posters push for sharp rise in anti-Semitism on line with fake news, warped comparisons, vile twisted descriptions, and cartoons. As a result, Jews were attacked in Europe, in Toronto, houses of worship in Germany (which in recent years is home to a large Arab-Muslim immigrant population), among other parts.
The US, the EU, the UK, and the United Arab Emirates condemned Hamas firing of rockets. Austria and Slovenia put up Israeli flags in show of support. In the Czech Republic Prague landmark lit up in the colors of the Israeli flag in show of support for Israel. On May 20, Czech, Slovak and German foreign ministers landed in Israel in show of solidarity. In the Italian Parliament, Israeli flags were displayed, and some representatives are seen clapping.
Areas with large Arab-Muslim population saw demonstrations against Israel. Including in downtown Brooklyn, NY; San Francisco, Dallas; among Arab masses in France, London, among Arab immigrants in Germany. Anti-Israel Protests has spread Antisemitism especially in Europe and has spread attacks on media. In London, mobs of radical Islamists walking the streets of London looking for Jews to attack, Muslims chanted "Khayber Khaybar oh Jews, Mohammad’s army is returning". A group in a convoy of 5 vehicles, called to rape Jewish women. In Vienna, [on May 15, 2021] students organized a demonstration against Anti-Semitism, some Muslims tried to interrupt it several times and belittled the Holocaust.
In some places, Muslim demonstrators put up both symbols: the swastika & "Palestine" flag.
Notable arrest was, Arab from Brooklyn. NY Waseem Awawdeh. Waseem said, after being arrested, that he would do it again, to which Newsmax's Logan Ratick Tweeted: Because he grew up brainwashed to hate a specific group of people. Days later, another Arab from NY was arrested in thst beating, Faisal Elezzi.
There were major demonstration of support for Israel in: USA, Canada and the Czech Republic. Rallies were held across the US in show of support of Israel by Jews and pro Israel Americans in: New York at Times Square, in Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Denver, Las Vegas, Seattle; Cleveland; Austin; Houston; Orlando, Fla.; the cities of Walnut Creek and Irvine in California; Scottsdale, Ariz. Evangelical Christians stood up for Israel and called on Biden to do the same.
Democrats, Nancy Pelosi condemned Hamas, but the GOP urged more forceful defense of embattled Israel. Mike Pence slammed Biden for 'weakness' in handling the conflict. Mitch McConnell rejected calls for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, saying, "we're already seeing some push the false narrative that this conflict is a tragic dispute between two legitimate combatants, where both sides share blame that is roughly equal. What nonsense." Some pointed out that the UAE was even more anti Hamas, for Israel than the Biden Administration.
Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both Muslims with a record of anti-Jewish bigotry, both using real progressives for this intolerance "holy" cause, were very dramatic. To the pair, AOC helped in arguing there is no balance in power, ignoring reality of course, the powerful "Palestinian" side which uses its own civilians (a long bloody history since at least 1982, Anti-Israel Terrorists' ["Palestinian" or Hezbollah] Routine Use of its Own Population as Human Shields. and even by Hamas' own admission earlier) to shoot at Israeli civilians which its army is the only side that is careful about civilians.
Despite a pair of pro-Terror radical "activists" [one a former al-Jazeera guy, caught lying already before, another one (Neve Gordon) hugging Arafat in the Middle of 2002 Intifadah butchery and chastising, punishing his students for daring to challenge him on his distortion] "book" promoted by two known hateful over-a-decade-propagandists on wiki. Yet, facts are facts.
One might imagine, what would have happened, if Israel would, even for one day, albeit not go as far as to behave like its Arab Palestinian or Hezbollah side that actively aim at civilians while using its own, but with its mighty weapons just haden't gone to great length ['roof knocking', developing precision 'Iron Sting' for precision preventing collateral damage various nethods] to minimize civilians from adversary territories.
As T. Marshall concludes:
Israel feels it has no choice but to try and smash the military infrastructure in Gaza. It also knows there will be civilian casualties despite them usually giving advance warning to people about which buildings they will hit. A proportion of the civilian casualties on the Palestinian side will be killed by the roughly 20 per cent of Hamas/PIJ missiles which fall within Gaza or blow up upon launch.Yet that is unlikely to be widely propagated in the Arab world. Iran and Hamas are prepared to sacrifice another generation of Palestinians to the overwhelming firepower of the Israelis in order to win the propaganda battle, and eventually the war.
Though AOC showed absolutely ignorance vis-a-vis the Middle East when she uttered the word "occupation" and admitted she isn't knowledgeable, yet she was quick to pick up the A slur, originally invented by genocidal Jihadi Ahmad Shukeiri (who in 1940 cheered, prayed for, then helped Hitler since 1941, justified the Holocaust in 1946, and promoted neo Nazi storm trooper gang who guarded Adolf Eichmann and has tortured a 19 years old girl, carved a swastika on her, as a revenge for killing Eichmann) He did it in October, 1961 in the context of him protesting the Eichmann trial, some 6 years before the so-called "occupation" in 1967. An Israeli Arab replied to her on the falsehood of applying the term vs reality of Arabs in democratic Israel with full equal rights.
(The A slur, and other like it, "Slur-du-jur" the vicious slandering via incorrectness, a demonization terminology exclusively. [VS real apartheid Arab—Islamic Middle East.]. Besides being hyperbolic with total inaccuracy [let alone the outrageous pretention as if one doesn't understand legitimate security concerns by this embattled state], and though it has been already used before, [including Omar Shakir, an Arab-Muslim activist against Israel since he was a student in 2010 Shakir's advocating for label apartheid while admitting it's tough, it's not the same as South Africa, such as voting rights for Arabs having rights, but that the strategy is effective, good to stand up to defenders of Israel..., deported from Israel for his bigoted BDS activities, then abusing the HRW platform. As mentioned, the label was invented already in 1961 by that Arab-Nazi, and ever since the defamors attempted "updates" to "adjust" its misrepresentation as so to fit the pre determined buzzword]. still, it is actually even more harmful in repeating, promoting it. Mighty dangerous in an obsessive legitimization campaign focused on one certain State, especially given the unparalleled history prior its establishment in its historic place. No wonder it's used by virtually all openly promoters of [true, not the exaggerated] genocide).
J. Robbins exposed Hamas cruel game and radical left helping them, quoting Hamas spokesman as expressing the mentality behind the suffering in Gaza in a nutshell. "The decision to bomb Tel Aviv, Dimona and Jerusalem," boasting about the 3,000 rockets it has already fired at Israeli communities in recent days alone, "is easier for us than drinking water." 
You bet it is. As in the past, the calculation by Hamas, deemed a terrorist enterprise by the European Union, the United States and others, to use Palestinian civilians as human shields from which to attempt the murder of Israeli civilians, isn't just easy. It is a no-brainer.
Here is what Hamas knows: It will fire missiles at innocent Israelis, using innocent Palestinians in homes, hospitals and schools as collateral damage-in-waiting. No Israeli government can permit its civilians to be used as lambs to be slaughtered. The only way for it to stop the rockets is to stop those who fire them. Israel will try to minimize the harm to Gazans, even those whom Hamas is happy to sacrifice. Innocent Palestinians whom Hamas has effectively designated for death will die.
And that isn't all Hamas knows. It knows that the cycle of inanity on the left will be replayed again, with those holding themselves out as progressives blaming not Hamas for firing the rockets, but Israel for trying to protect itself from them....
One supposes that neither Pressley nor Ocasio-Cortez has had their families forced into underground shelters, while missiles aimed at annihilating them landed all around. The painful appearance is that neither congresswoman “sees” Israelis. Both seem to regard Israelis as somehow not quite human. Israeli life evidently holds little value or interest for Pressley, Ocasio-Cortez and certain of their colleagues.
“We cannot stand idly and complicitly by and allow the occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people to continue,” said Pressley, opting for a platitude both sophomoric and inapposite. The idea that Hamas, which has consigned Palestinians to needless suffering since it seized control of the Gaza Strip in a 2007 coup, acts out of concern for Palestinians’ welfare is risible. No one need take Israel's word for it; ask Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas’ sworn enemy. Thumbing its nose at the opportunity to help construct a Palestinian state, Hamas has effectively enslaved Gazans in service of its own fanaticism. It is an organization that progressives should not indulge, let alone embrace.
Just as the congresswomen have no particular interest in standing in Israelis’ shoes, so too are they disinterested in material facts. Were it otherwise, they would know that over the past two decades Israel has repeatedly agreed to an independent Palestinian state encompassing the West Bank and Gaza, in return simply for peace. Each time the offer was made, Palestinian leadership rejected it. Whether Pressley has the vaguest idea of this when she whitewashes the targeting of Israeli civilians by invoking “the occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people,” one can only guess.Adding, that everyone has flaws, yetthe left's devil-may-care attitude toward the use of innocent Palestinians as human shields to terrorize innocent Israelis isn’t merely foolish. It badly hurts those on both sides of the conflict.
Among celebrities, it was mostly the usual suspects who criticized Israel, with a few celebs taking a more nuanced view. 
Comedian John Oliver (asides from using the fake buzzwords, showing clearly, it's out of spite), his basic line was that asymmetrical deaths. Which is as stupid as one can be. In other words, the fact that Israel was successful in defending its citizents. Not to mention which side is seeking deaths, of both sides.
In response, another comedian, Lior Schleien, asked him how many Israelis would satisfy him.... that’s the point. The terminology. And the symmetry. Israelis don’t die enough. We keep trying. How many Israeli casualties will satisfy you? A child, do you count it as less than one? 
Another comedian, Tom Aharon went after the specifics of Oliver’s arguments, including one about the imbalance of military power between Israel and the Palestinians. “Does being stronger bear certain responsibilities? Sure. But does it automatically mean you’re at fault? Of course not. It almost sounds like you’re mad at us for not taking more casualties,” he says. “Claiming that imbalance is immoral is the privilege of those who don’t need to make the choice between their own safety and their care for others.”
Boteach exposed the Hadid (Dua Lipa, of Muslim origin, dating Anwar Hadid brother of sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, daughters of Arab "Palestinian" billionaire, Mohamed Hadid) family's hate campaign:
Take the example of Mohamed Hadid, the multi-millionaire father of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid, all of whom are vilifying Israel with gusto to their tens of millions of followers on Instagram.
Instead, the blood libel is spreading.
His daughters, Bella and Gigi, joined by the singer Dua Lipa – who is purportedly dating their brother – have become an unholy trinity of Hamas terror-splaining
It-girls engaged in the outright demonization of Israel and the Jewish people.
Speaking to their nearly hundred million followers on social media, they have vilified the Jewish state with an all-consuming hatred.
They accused Israel – a nation built in large part by Holocaust survivors – of ethnic cleansing, even as millions of Jews in Israel descend from refugees savagely forced out of every Arab land. They condemn Israel for the military checkpoints that were erected only after 700 innocent Israeli Jews and Arabs were blown to bits by suicide bombers on buses and cafés, many of them sent by Hamas. They call Israel an apartheid state, even as it is the only country in world history to airlift Africans into freedom and sets the standard for multi-racial and multi-cultural coexistence, with millions of Christians, Muslims and Jews - black and white – living side by side as doctors, teachers and soldiers.
Theirs is a malicious ignorance. If Bella, Gigi and Dua cared about Palestinians, they’d condemn Hamas, a bloodthirsty death cult whose brutality toward women and tolerance for honor killings of young Palestinian girls is an abomination. They’d demand that Hamas stop its use of Palestinian children as human shields for military stockpiles and rocket launch pads, cease its regular murders of LGBT Palestinians, and reverse its denial of the Palestinian people’s right to elections, after fourteen autocratic years. But those demands don’t fit into a campaign that’s solely about hating and defaming Jews.Worst of all, in defending the Hamas terrorists, Bella, Gigi and Dua make themselves apologists for the genocidal aspirations of Hamas, whose charter calls for the murder of Jews “wherever they are found.” Hamas seeks nothing less than a second holocaust: 3,500 shrapnel-packed rockets should be more than enough to prove they mean it.
'Memes have replaced morality': former NYT columnist Bari Weiss railed against AOC, the Hadid sisters and Dua Lipa after they all 'attacked Israel' for defending itself against a 'genocidal terrorist organization'.
Bill Maher called out the hypocrisy of Instagram celebs like Bella Hadid, “Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.”
...Hadid, whose dad is Palestinian, is among the most vocal pro-Palestinian voices ...Israel has accused the supermodel of anti-Semitism.
Bill Maher got into a fiery debate over the recent Israel-Gaza conflict on Friday night and took aim at the 'liberal media' over its news coverage before turning on progressives including supermodel Bella Hadid.
'One of the frustrations I had while I was off is that I was watching this war go on in Israel … and it was frustrating to me because there was no one on liberal media to defend Israel, really,' Maher, 65, began. He was referring to a recent COVID-19 diagnosis that forced him off the air last week.
'We've become this country now that we're kind of one-sided on this issue. And I'd also like to say off the bat I don't think kids understand, and when I say kids I mean the younger generations – you can't learn history from Instagram!' the 65-year-old Maher added. 'There's just not enough space.' Bill Maher got into a fiery debate over the recent Israel-Gaza conflict on Friday night and took aim at the 'liberal media' over its news coverage before turning on progressives... as New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof suggested Israel had committed 'possible war crimes' against Gaza.
'Well, Gaza fired 4,000 rockets into Israel. What would you say Israel should have done instead of what they did?' Maher asked.
'International lawyers are pretty clear that they have a right to defend themselves … but there is a sense that their response was probably a war crime because they did not sufficiently avoid civilian casualties,' Kristof explained.
'But they purposely put the rockets in civilian places. That's their strategy,' Maher responded.
Maher then went into a detailed explanation that countered a oft-repeated narrative that Israel 'stole' the land...
'The Jews have been in that area of the world since about 1200 B.C., way before the first Muslim or Arab walked the Earth. ... I mean, Jerusalem was their capital. So if it's who got there first, it's not even close,' Maher said.
'The Jews were the ones who were occupied by everybody; the Romans took over at some point and then the Persians and the Byzantines and then the Ottomans. So yes, there was colonization going on there. Beginning in the 19th century, they started to return to Palestine, which was never an Arab country. There was never a country called Palestine that was a distinct Arab country.
'Doesn't it behoove the people who rejected the half a loaf and continue to attack … Hamas's charter says they just want to wipe out Israel. Their negotiation position is 'You all die, Maher said. 'The two-state solution has been on the table a number of times. There could be an Arab capital in East Jerusalem now if Yasser Arafat had accepted that in 2003. He did not...
The State of Israel's official Twitter account said Hadid was advocating for sending 'Jews into the sea'...
'I mean, they have rejected this and went to war time and time again,' Mayer continued, 'And, you know, as far as Gaza goes, it's amazing to me that the progressives think that they're being progressive by taking that side of it, the Bella Hadids of the world, these influencers.
'I just want to say in February of this year, a Hamas court ruled that a unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That's where the progressives are? Bella Hadid and her friends would run screaming to Tel Aviv if they had to live in Gaza for one day.'
Kristof once attempted to defend Hadid's position and said that he didn't 'perceive' her as defending Hamas but for Gazan children who were killed during the fighting.
But Maher referred the columnist to that slogan Hadid chanted while taking part in a pro-Palestine march in New York City earlier this month.
'From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.' The phrase is normally associated with the wiping out of Israel.
Earlier in the week, Bella Hadid attended the same pro-Palestinian protest as the man arrested for allegedly beating a bystander in Times Square last week and calling him a 'filthy Jew' - and posted a picture of him on her Instagram....
In her post including a picture of Awawdeh .. Hadid wrote: 'The way my heart feels … To be around this many beautiful, smart, respectful, loving, kind and generous Palestinians all in one place... it feels whole! We are a rare breed!!'
Police say Awawdeh was among a gang of demonstrators who four days later punched a Jewish man to the pavement then pummeled him while he was down, yelling anti-Semitic epithets.He is charged with assault as a hate crime, gang assault, menacing, aggravated harassment as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon.
On May 13, 2021, a "contributor" piece appeared in the NYT by a vicious racist spreading Nazi type of venom (including his boasting, his child at the age of 5/6, asked him who created the Jews, and he said he couldn't answer her In order to justify his war, Refaat stated that all Israel are "soldiers." Which of course includes the elderly, the children, most of ultra Orthodox haredi who choose not to serve on the IDF for religious reasons, especiallly a large percentage of Jerusalem's neighborhoods who are as much of target by Arab Islamic racist attackers. The NYT May/2021 article falsely alleged that the Israel Defense Forces hit targets in the Gaza Strip with “no strategic value,” while implying that Israelis “draw straws” or “roll a dice” to decide “which block to annihilate” — essentially promoting a modern-day blood libel. On Sep 25, 2020, a twitter 'Lou' tweeted: 'Rabin was a peacemaker.' Refaat (@itranslate123) replied: 'So was Hitler.') - Gaza "author" Refaat Alareer, claiming his child supposedly "asked" him something about bombing. 
On May 22, 2021.
Two "Palestine" YouTubers with a Million viewers among them, had picked a Jewish neighborhood in London, harassed ordinary religious people on the Sabbath, taunted them with Holocaust messages on van. (Related: One of those YouTubers, Ali Dawah, on Mar 2022, got shamed on his camera for hijacking Ukrainian suffering and making it all about 'Palestine'. Just As he did with any major event.)
Arab Ex-Porn star Khalifa called Israel 'apartheid' while (flaunting) drinking Nazi-era champagne.
Pakistan's top diplomat, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, made anti-Semitic remark during CNN interview about Gaza conflict Guardian of Walls.
[Reminder, neither Islamic Pakistan nor Islamic Iran share any borders or have any "land disputes" with Israel.]
... Israel just wants to live in peace with its neighbors, "but what we won't do is commit suicide so you can make your snarky comedy bits."
.... Many of these criticisms stemmed from the idea that there is a significant disparity in casualties, with Hamas suffering far more casualties than Israel, due in part to the Iron Dome defense system.
But Bennett sought to set the record straight for who he sarcastically called "The 'great philosophers' of our age."
Bennett... gave numerous examples of important Gazan facilities such as Shifa hospital and the Ayyobiya Boys School, both of which are also Hamas facilities that are used to help plan attacks on Israel or store weapons.
.... the example of the al-Jalaa building, where several media outlets like Al Jazeera and the Associated Press had offices. ...also housed a Hamas military ...
"So Bella, John and Noah, help me out here," he said. "If a terror organization like Hamas called to murder your families and launched thousands of missiles at your children while they're hiding inside hospitals, schools and media offices, what would you do?"
... two options. Do nothing and die, or respond.
"I don't know about you all, but we're gonna go with number two," Bennett explained.
... If celebrities like Noah, Oliver and Hadid want to help end this war, then they should be using their platforms to demand Hamas stop hiding behind innocent civilians, he said.
"Maybe you should ask Hamas operator, Fathi Hamad, to stop bragging that 'Palestinian women and children make the best human shields," .... On May 16, the Israel Twitter account responded to Hadid, who along with her sister Gigi Hadid had shared multiple pro-Palestinian messages on social media, many of which were controversial.
"When celebrities like @BellaHadid advocate for throwing Jews into the sea, they are advocating for the elimination of the Jewish State," the Israel Twitter account wrote.
"This shouldn't be an Israeli-Palestinian issue. This should be a human issue. Shame on you."... Responding to Oliver, Renana, a 10-year-old girl from Kfar Azza, a Gaza border community where rocket sirens have been ringing day and night for the past week and a half, recorded a video ..."Every siren makes me cry and feel sad," Renana said, speaking well beyond her years. "Just so you know, my army is strong. However, this does not protect me from being afraid."
Journalist decried the Hadid sisters' contribution to the increase in Anti Semitic attacks. Who "have three times more followers than the total Jewish population in the world as of 2021," and that "when they spread their Fake News and increase antisemitism in the world - for some reason, everyone is silent. And if you were wondering what about the Palestinians - you just proved that this is not the conflict that interests you, because what is the connection between it - and beatings that a Jew gets in New York." She said....these two supermodels blatantly circulated antisemitic posts, falsely portraying the Jews of Israel as white supremacists and colonialists, through fake news, blatant lies, infographics based on unreliable sources and a variety of techniques. With the goal to express support for the Palestinians, according to them. They removed the posts later, either because of outside criticism or out of an understanding that what underpinned the posts they shared with many millions around the world, is of course pure anti-Semitism. But in simple terms: both have three times more followers than the total world Jewish population, after Hitler - that one, of those posts "Hit... was right" - succeeded in exterminating more than a third of the Jewish population in the Holocaust. This is after my family members have been attacked only because of their identity.
The May 2021 conflict between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas generated headlines around the world. However, much of the reporting ignored the history, funding, political dynamics, and other key components of the story. Hamas initiates conflict every few years. But the reporting rarely improves. Social media has only further clouded the picture. Hamas is rarely held responsible for its use of "human shields," blindly firing rockets at civilian areas in Israel, or diverting aid that should benefit the people of Gaza.
The Islamic Republic of Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism, has been the primary patron of Hamas since the group's inception in the late 1980s. Hamas has received additional assistance over the years from Qatar, Turkey and Malaysia. These countries are fomenting conflict, while others, such as Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, have tried to minimize it. Gaza is therefore ground zero in a struggle for the future stability of the Middle East.The Biden administration has important choices to make. Its intent to re-enter the Iran nuclear deal could have significant consequences, given that sanctions relief to Iran will likely yield a financial boon for Hamas, along with other Iranian proxies. The Biden administration must also come to terms with "The Squad," a small but loud faction of the Democratic Party that seeks to undermine the US-Israel relationship.
Andrew Yang backtracked his staunch supporting tweet for Israel, after Muslim and hard left backlash against him and later said he cares about Palestinians while also supporting the State of Israel.
Author traces the process by which material pressures and intellectual fashions reshaped world opinion of Israel. Initially, terrorism, oil blackmail, and the sheer size of Arab and Muslim populations gave the world powerful inducements to back the Arab cause. Then, a prevalent new paradigm of Leftist orthodoxy, in which class struggle was supplanted by the noble struggles of people of color, created a lexicon of rationales for taking sides against Israel. Thus, nations can behave cravenly while striking a high-minded pose in aligning themselves on the Middle East conflict.
Worth mentioning, In June, 2021, following the Guardian of walls, arch terrorist head of Hamas, Sinwar propagated on a lefty media outlet in the US trying to compare events in Jerusalem to Geroge Floyd, a journalist reminded that he should rather tell about discrimination by Arab Palestinians against Afro Palestinians, such as in the Old city.

It got so bad in 2021, with anti-Jewish attacks, ‘BBC’ ranked third, after Iran and Hamas, on Wiesenthal Center ‘top 10’ anti-Semitism list. Given the weight it has, that people trust it.
Random example: The Associated Press called (Aug/2021) terrorists in Gaza throwing incendiary balloons onto Israeli civilians as "activists."
Rarely do most media show images of Israeli women and children wounded, yet constantly bombard its most graphic images from the other side. Knowing fully well the responsibility of those that seek this outcome for this very reason. As terrorists see it [firing from residential places, schools, mosques, etc.] as a win win situation. If they save themselves and their equipment, they can keep it on. If many civilians on its side die, Israel's image is even more in shambles and blooded photos are powerful in its sympathy and even recruitment.
Even supposed less openly biased anchors/journalists repeat an inaccurate line such as "Hamas responded with rockets." Forgetting the simple fact, it was Hamas who actually began the shelling. Like usual.
Bennett replied to MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin of Arab-Palestinian descent: "They are out to destroy us." Then pointed to articke 7 of Hamas's constitution which talks about killing Jews, laced with jihadi terminology.
Brendan O'Neill exposes the outrageous response in the West:Anti-Israel fury in the West has intensified to an extraordinary degree following an escalation of violence in the Middle East in recent days. Protests were instant and inflammatory. Israeli flags were burned on the streets of London. Social media was awash with condemnation. ‘IDF Soldier Recounts Harrowing, Heroic War Story Of Killing 8-Month-Old Child’, tweeted The Onion, to tens of thousands of likes. Israel must be boycotted, isolated, cast out of the international community, leftists cried. Western politicians, including Keir Starmer, rushed to pass judgement. ‘What’s the difference?’, said a placard at a march in Washington, DC showing the Israeli flag next to the Nazi flag. The Jews are the Nazis now, you see. Ironic, isn’t it? This is the question anti-Israel campaigners have never been able to answer: why do they treat Israel so differently to every other nation on Earth? Why is it child-killing bloodlust when Israel takes military action but not when Turkey or India do? Why must we rush to the streets to set light to the Israel flag but never the Saudi flag, despite Saudi Arabia’s unconscionable war on Yemen? Why is it only ‘wrong’ or at worst ‘horrific’ when Britain or America drop bombs in the Middle East but Nazism when Israel fires missiles into Gaza? Why do you merely oppose the military action of some states but you hate Israel, viscerally, publicly, loudly?
In May, 2021:Violence broke out in Jerusalem and Gaza, and social networks in Arabic were filled with reactions such as "Hitler was [sic] right" and pictures of swastikas. Some of the responses were sent to cyberspace by bots. Many others were written by real people who grew up and were educated in an atmosphere of Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism.
Exposure of media's relationship with the controlling terrorists and its propaganda
The general fear by media working in Palestinian-Arab areas has been strong, especially since the infamous filming of the 2000 Ramalla lynch, the media.
The Associated Press, became very angry on May 15, 2021, after Israel gave them a warning to evacuate the building in Gaza before leveling it to the ground, stating it also housed Hamas intelligence. (In June/2021, Israel elaborated to the AP on Hamas' work at the building jamming Israel's Iron Dome defense system signals). The IDF watched as Hamas and the Iran-backed Islamic Jihad terror groups utilized the warning time to remove objects — possibly munitions — from the building.
AP's spokesman later denied he knew Hamas worked in the vicinity. Despite AP reporter already revealing it in 2014. Including Hamas shooting from around media (human shields) and its influence over reporters / reporting. The US confirmed, seeing the intelligence about Hamas operating in the building, A spokesman for the White House National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, said that the building was long known as an operational center for the Islamic fundamentalist group.
Thus, the obvious influence of the anti Israel jihadists was exposed even further.
Further more, already earlier, it was explained that "It is the liberal agenda of the media that gives Hamas legitimacy for its actions."
In 2018, M Friedman wrote: "Early in that war, I complied with Hamas censorship in the form of a threat to one of our Gaza reporters & cut a key detail from an article: that Hamas fighters were disguised as civilians & were being counted as civilians in the death toll…"
Indeed, The news agency has a long, shameful record of regurgitating the terror group's lies.
- The building demolished by IDF also housed anti-Israel Al Jazeera which is owned by Qatar supporter of Hamas.
After the ceasefire, Al Jazeera was applauded in Gaza rally.
- Writer exposed the NYT "emotive" front page re conflict and what it says about woke western media journalists fulfilling Hamas' agenda.
- In June, 2021, "Islamic terror outfit Hamas honours Al Jazeera for its ‘high professionalism’ during the recent Israel-Gaza clashes."
Haters at media
The BBC came under fire, after an Arab "palestine" based journalist in Ramallah, Tala Halawa, who staunchly supported Bella Hadid anti-Israel tweets (which was laced with that apartheid slur), was exposed for her "Hitler was right" and other hate tweets.
This pro-Hitler's-genocide "journalist" also tried to sugarcoat the horrific ‘from the river to the sea Palestine will be free’ and ‘free, free Palestine’.
This "palestinian" Hitler lady even had the audacity of accusing the BBC in its firing of her as "racist", no less...
Islamic Republic of Iran- Hitleristic Genocidal campaign
Promoting genocide online at Guardian of Walls, including via Hitler, his genocide praising hashtags: 
Iranian state actors are intensifying their disinformation campaign on social media to spread discord and anti-Semitic tropes inside the U.S., two U.S. intelligence officials say.…But within days of the conflict beginning last month in Israel and Gaza Twitter accounts linked to Iran were amplifying anti-Semitic messages in English, including the phrases “hitler was [sic] right” and “kill all jews” at a rate of 175 times per minute, according to analysis by Network Contagion Research Institute.
Hitler admiration, violence promotion, death celebration at UN run schoolsReport published in Aug, 2021 found:Over 100 teachers and staff of schools run by UNRWA have been explicitly and publicly promoting hateful content, particularly against Jews and Israelis, including celebrating deaths.
And: A total of 113 instances of incitement obtained by UN Watch from the public social media pages of the UNWRA employees shows that many celebrated and promoted violence.
As UNRWA chief proposed a so-called ‘neutrality training’, Israel rejected it and demanded Hitler-admiring teachers be fired. 
UNRWA on Hamas using its schools
UNRWA found (this time too) attack tunnel under one of its Gaza schools. From Arab journslist Khaled Abu Toameh:UNRWA 'condemns the existence and potential use by Palestinian armed groups of tunnels underneath its schools (in Gaza) in the strongest possible terms It is unacceptable that students and staff be placed at risk in such a way.'
In August, 2021, Hamas prevented UN team from working near terror tunnel by school.
On May 20, 2021, a ceasefire has been announced to go into effect at 2AM next day. Israeli officials, denied any agreements have been reached with Hamas. Just a half an hour before the ceasefire to take effect, Hamas led barrages towards the 'envelope' area.
It came after some 1,500 terror targets were attacked with thousands of munitions and about 4,360 attempts were made to launch from Gaza at Israel, of which about 3,400 crossed into the State of Israel, about 680 fell in the Gaza Strip and about 280 fell into the sea. After the ceasefire, Biden said 'No peace until Middle East nations recognize Israel's right to exist.' He then added his support for 'two states.'
Fatalities: numbers, "civilians" and the culprit
According to IDF data, about 200 terrorists were killed in the operation, including about 20 senior officials, but the army estimates that these figures are expected to rise in the coming days, after the bodies of the debris from Gaza are rescued.
An analysis of fatalities by Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center records eight children under the age of 18 were killed by misfired Palestinian rockets during just the first two days of Israel’s defense operation. 
Study:Much of the coverage and commentary surrounding the fighting in May between Hamas and Israel has focused on numbers, especially the much larger number of Palestinians than Israelis killed. The number of deaths is actually very low for such an intense conflict, a testament to Israel’s Iron Dome and civil defense systems, and its use of precision weapons and warnings aimed at minimizing Palestinian civilian deaths. Of course, Hamas aims to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible, but its rockets place both Israelis and Palestinians in peril, because many of those rockets—in this case 680—misfire and explode inside Gaza. The death and destruction caused is, of course, usually blamed on Israel. The question addressed here is how many Palestinians are likely to have been killed by these errant Palestinian rockets in May. The estimate arrived at is 91, amounting to 36% of the alleged Palestinian death toll.
Terrorists murdered 13 and injured 797.
Hamas has a record of lying about fatalities. Even biased NYT in its own propaganda piece had to insert the line: Human rights researchers say Hamas strictly controls information about civilian deaths in Gaza to hide its losses and failures...
Fact, Hamas Rockets Killed More Palestinians than Israel's. As 4½ times as many rockets hit Palestinian populated areas than Israeli ones. In conclusion, analyst: "a 10-day air campaign in a dense urban environment – which I remind you was undertaken in self-defense, after Israel was attacked, in which there were only 26 civilian casualties as a result. This is a record that no other military force in history, even the most advanced Western armies, can match."
We investigated 50 incidents during the recent fighting in Gaza in which "human rights" organizations reported civilians killed. We have cross-referenced data, locations and statements and now we are showing that the "civilians" are in fact terrorists of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
- As recognized by international law, Israel has the legal right to employ the force necessary to defend itself. President Biden, on May 16, 2021, “reaffirmed his strong support for Israel’s right to defend itself against rocket attacks from Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza.”
- From a young age, Palestinian children are indoctrinated by the Palestinian leadership to seek death through war. For example, the daughter of a Hamas official was recorded saying, “If we die, we will die as Martyrs for the sake of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa.” Such indoctrination is reinforced in summer camps for children and culminates in the conscription of children into military units, in direct violation of international humanitarian law.
- In the course of the 11-day conflict, from May 10 to May 21, 2021, Hamas launched 4,300 rockets at Israeli civilians in a blatant violation of international humanitarian law, which calls to protect civilian populations during military operations. Article 25 of the 1907 Hague Regulations specifically prohibits attacks or bombardment of towns, villages, dwellings, or buildings that are undefended.
- Hamas unapologetically uses its own civilians as human shields, unconcerned with the fatal ramifications of its actions. British Colonel Richard Kemp designated Hamas as “the first ‘army’ in history to use their own civilian populations as a primary weapon of war.” On May 12, 2021, UN Special Coordinator Tor Wennesland told the UN Security Council, “Hamas and other militants’ indiscriminate launching of rockets and mortars from highly populated civilian neighborhoods into civilian population centers in Israel violates international humanitarian law, is unacceptable, and has to stop immediately.”
- Israel makes a concerted effort to limit civilian casualties. The IDF engages in the practice of “roof knocking” to warn civilians prior to an attack on Hamas targets. In addition, before Israeli attacks, civilians receive phone calls advising them to evacuate. Israeli drones watch from above, and attacks are permitted only after it is confirmed that the building has been evacuated.
- Hamas demonstrates no respect for international humanitarian law designed to protect innocent civilians. Therefore, it is vital that Hamas be held accountable for its illegal actions in international forums and international courts of law. Without doing so, there will be no justice for those who have suffered from the grave human rights abuses committed by Hamas.
It has been noted,Certain facts are irrefutable. The terrorists are motivated by hatred and aim to wound or kill innocent women, men and children. Israel, by contrast, is motivated by the legal and moral imperative to protect and preserve life, and is always entirely justified in acting in its own self-defense...It is impossible to obtain reliable data on civilian casualties in Gaza. Data that is provided to and reported by the media come from the Gaza Health Ministry, which is run by Hamas, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. What we do know — what is proven — is that Hamas commits war crimes by using Palestinians as human shields. No place in Gaza is safe from Hamas. Rockets, mortars, rifles and missiles are stored or fired from schools, apartment buildings, offices, mosques and hospitals.
The Arab Nazi Hitler fan, "Palestinian" specialist for BBC, Halawa, the Hitler was right" lady, also responded to an Israel-based Twitter user, who had disputed Palestinian casualty figures, by saying: “ur media is produced by ur zionist government in order 2 produce ignorant people.”.

He was careful to walk around surrounded by bodyguards and residents of the Gaza Strip who served as his "human shield," assuming that the IDF would not eliminate him when surrounded by civilians.
UN condemns Hamas, Hezbollah for its use of Human shields, wider anti-Jewish attacks
In July, 2021, the UN condemned Hamas and Hezbollah use of human shields. It passed a resolution to condemn terrorism directed at Jews for the first time in its history, as well as the use of the internet as a recruitment tool for terrorists.

- Amir Bohbot, This is how the top Hamas engineers were eliminated in the "Guardian of the Walls": "They were buried", Walla!, 07/05/2022.
During the operation, the IDF launched the "Goliath City" plan, the details of which are revealed for the first time, in which a huge branch branched off in tunnels under civilian buildings in Gaza City. "
Operation Guardian of the Walls began on May 10, 2021, Monday, with a significant air force attack that included 130 terrorist targets. Hamas understood that the IDF was facing an extensive operation and not a one-off response.... That evening, the chief of staff approved the "Goliath city" attack plan... In a bunker, Hamas' research, development and production of weapons were hidden inside a ramified system of top tunnels. The challenge of attacking the bunker was enormous, as it was built (not by chance) under buildings containing civilians.
Researchers who analyzed the engineering infrastructure that helped build the huge bunker found that the "city" also has tunnels that lead to the heart of the bunker from nearby buildings.
After countless planning, training, exercises and technique development processes, the Air Force under the direct command of Amikam Nurkin prepared to attack the bunker.
At around 05:20 on Thursday morning, the Air Force attacked in more than four minutes more than 10 shafts that led to the bunker.
"We told ourselves that it was better not to attack the heart of the bunker, due to the fear of harming civilians, so we attacked the openings and so they were buried," said a source who was exposed to the operational plan before the execution.
"The results were impressive and accurate. If they had missed one shaft they would have managed to escape from the bunker."
According to IDF estimates, apart from senior Hamas figures who were killed, 50% of the rocket's production capacity and 75% of the Islamic Jihad's production capacity were damaged in the operation.
Beyond that, in the internal discussions in the defense establishment, the insight arose that after Operation Goliath, it will be difficult for Hamas to rebuild its military force.
The question then arose about the attack on the "metro", a ramified system of tunnels that Hamas had built for more than 15 years under Gaza City and by which escaped unmanned aerial vehicles....
"They invested everything in it, and the IDF destroyed it in the 'Guardian of the Walls.' Does that mean there will be no tunnels in Gaza?" Saar continued. "There will be tunnels in Gaza... but the tunnels - in a completely different event.Now they already understand that they can die in the tunnels, now they understand that they can not move everything to the tunnels. Now they understand that we have a huge advantage over them and they need a different systemic idea."

- In mid-May, prominant Arab businessman linked with politician incited to violence. Two months later it was revealed he was actually a spy for Iran:

We are not afraid of the occupation."
Ad Kan (@adkanorg) Tweeted: Various sources including Abu Elkien himself claimed that we were lying and that this was not his intention, and that criminal organizations in general are responsible for the riots in Lod and we are just agitating. So here's not only that Elkien incited violence it turns out that he is also an Iranian spy. July 12, 2021
The Israel Police reopened the investigation file for incitement offenses and handed over the investigation file to the State Attorney's Office for the purpose of making a decision and for the purpose of amending the indictment against Yacoub Abu-Elkien. Advocate Yosef Ackerman, spokesman for the organization "Ad Kan", filed a complaint with the police in May against the incitement carried out and uploaded by Abu Elkien in which he called for the murder of Jews, after an indictment was filed against him on suspicion of providing information to the enemy and contact with a foreign agent. Various media publications have shown that Abu-Alkien was questioned by the GSS after the incitement was published and even warned about his actions. Several months after the indictment was filed by the State Attorney's Office against Abu Elkien for espionage and contact with a foreign agent and after the indictment did not address any incitement offenses from the Lod events, the organization "Ad Kan" wrote a letter to the State Attorney's Office to understand why this section does not appear in the indictment. The State Attorney's Office's response states that no material or complaint regarding Abu Elkian's incitement was forwarded to them. In light of this answer, the organization "Ad Kan" contacted the Israel Police in order to understand why the case was not transferred and what the status of the case was. In response to the request, a town station in the south, to which the case was transferred, replied that the case was closed due to an "unfortunate mistake" but in light of the referral and understanding of the importance of the case, the police reopened the case and forwarded it to the State Attorney's Office. Adv. Yosef Ackerman, spokesman for the organization "Ad Kan", stated: "We are sorry that the Israel Police closed the case at the time and did not immediately act to prosecute Abu Elkien for incitement. On the other hand, we welcome the correction of the accident and call on the State Attorney's Office to amend the indictment soon "It should be emphasized that this is a public figure who, in his actions, encouraged and incited the crowd in wall-guard incidents.

- Kalman Liebskind, Coverage of the events of Arab violence remind us that something in our media is distorted, Maariv, May 1, 2021.
For the Israeli press, if Arabs attack Jews, throw Molotov cocktails, or shout slogans in support of Hamas - it's probably because some Jew did something wrong.
Is violence a bad thing? Is it something to be condemned to? Is a behavior that should be condemned? Seemingly, the answer is simple. of course. Why only ostensibly? Because the events of the last two weeks have reminded us - not for the first time, and probably not for the last time either - that in the Israeli media the reference to violence stems first and foremost from the question of who uses it. As in any round of Arab violence, the simple journalistic rule states that there is no bad Arab, there is a bad Arab for him. And if an Arab attacks Jews in Jaffa, throws Molotov cocktails in Jerusalem, or shouts in support of Hamas in Umm al-Fahm, it is likely that some Jew did something wrong. And the more this Jew differs in his appearance and worldview from the mainstream media - and Rabbi Eliyahu Mali, the Rosh Yeshiva in Jaffa, is just one example - the greater the understanding of violence against him. This is the formula. She works almost always.
Muhammad Deif's Soldiers
Take the recent violent riots in Jerusalem. Who is responsible for them, according to the average of reports and interviews in the media? The rioting Arabs? No way. Those responsible are fences set by the police on the steps at the Nablus Gate. Guilt settings. For a whole week, the media has been inflating this nonsense. Already left the fact that the Arabs riot here once in a while, and the previous times they did it - there were no fences on the agenda. They also abandoned the fact that even after definitions were removed, videos and testimonies of groups of Arabs who continued to attack Jews continued to be published. But in what world can someone's allegations of misconduct by the police put him off well when he uses violence? In what world can journalists see pictures of hundreds of people standing in the center of the capital, singing hymns to a terrorist organization, attacking policemen and shouting "We are Muhammad Deif's soldiers", interviewing them with understanding for their plight, and giving what they do the romantic nickname "Battle on the Stairs"? Do you think the police were wrong when they put up fences at the Nablus gate? Maybe you're right, well, so what? I once received a report from a police officer, who thought he saw me talking on the phone while driving, and I declare to you here that things were not and were not created. Would anyone understand if I threw a Molotov cocktail at him, in response to his wrong decision? But when it comes to the media and the evenings, everything goes wrong. You do not have a violent Arab, who does not have a defense attorney with a journalist certificate. Arab violence always has explanations. Once it's settings, once it's Benzi Gupstein, once it's the magnetometers. Remember what happened here after ... Muhammad Abu Khadir? This murder was shocked, permeated, and deserved Israeli-Jewish condemnation, but all this did not stop the Arabs from rioting and raging and trying to murder Jews and damage the state's infrastructure, from the Negev to the Galilee, from the Triangle to Jerusalem. As if all of us, all Jews, were complicit in this murder. Even then, just like today, our media managed to understand the "rage". Something in our media, and this is not new, is morally distorted from the root.
Lies and cutting corners
And because the media is uncomfortable portraying the Arabs as haters, violent, or anti-Semites, it chooses to lie, hide, round corners, to take the very simple story for reporting - and distort it as much as possible. The most common journalistic way of protecting the soft soul of the media consumer from reality, usually goes through self-censorship of the facts. Or in other words, through the decision not to call the child by his name. And so, a report of an Arab hurting a Jew, something that should be simple and easy to understand, somehow becomes a quiz. Why say Arab? This can be insulting. It is better instead to report "young", "resident of the area" or "attacker", and whoever understands, will understand. Take, for example, this report, which was heard on Sunday morning in IDF waves. Appeared in this list. "Jew" and "Arab." This is how it sounds: "At the beginning of the night, a Border Police officer was attacked with a blow to his face by a resident of the east of the city at the Flower Gate. The police officer needed medical treatment, and the suspect in the act was arrested for questioning. "At the same time, in an incident on David Street in the Old City, a man was attacked while a hat he was wearing was thrown from his head. The police arrested the suspect for questioning. "Later, at the Rockefeller junction, a firework was fired and a stone was thrown at a police vehicle, resulting in two policemen being injured in a light condition. "At the same time, during a procession of dozens of masked men in Issawiya, the rioters started firing fireworks. "In addition, in the Railway Park in Jerusalem, a man was attacked by two suspects. Police officers who arrived at the scene, arrested the suspects and they were taken for questioning. "Stones were thrown at a bus coming from the direction of Modi'in to Jerusalem near the Atarot junction. As a result, the bus driver was hit in the face and sought medical attention." What do you mean "person" was attacked? What does it mean that the "suspects" in his attack were arrested? Who is the person? Who are the suspects? After all, there is violence here. Is it not important that we know which side is the gods and which is the victim of the violence? And that, of course, is no exception. Go to the reports of News 12, and here, and of other media outlets. So are almost everyone. The most shameful example this week, at least in what I had time to watch, came in an article by Yossi Mizrahi on News 12. A stranger, if he had landed directly in this article, would not have understood, even with great effort, that there was a problem with what the Arabs did here this week. Let's start with the title. "Yossi Mizrahi left following the tension between Jews and Arabs in the capital." symmetry. Not violent Arabs. No Arabs are raging. Not Arabs attacking Jews. "Tensions between Jews and Arabs." Immediately afterwards the source of the problem is found. "This small amphitheater is the cause of the conflict this time. During Ramadan, the city's Arabs usually sit here as part of the ceremony, break the fast, and then go out to pray on the Temple Mount. But the police feared a gathering that would create a bottleneck, and banned the yeshiva." From the article it was quite clear who was responsible for the riots, Aliba d'Arc 12, and who their victim was. The police are to blame, the Arabs are its victims. Then Yossi Mizrahi found another reason for the "wave of violence that befalls the capital." On the Arab side, he says, they insisted it all started two weeks ago in Silwan, "a moment after another 16 settler families moved here." It is interesting to pause here for a moment and ask the people of Channel 12 what makes a Jew who buys a house in Jerusalem, a sovereign territory of the State of Israel, a "settler." The answer is of course clear. "A settler," according to a journalist, is a man who lives in a place we do not want him to live. Further, Mizrahi interviews an Arab, who tells him how the settlers take his house, and how they take his dreams from him, and only one figure does not appear in his article, that those Jews, to whom Mizrahi referred, purchased these houses with full money. They did not expel anyone. They did not throw anyone away. They did not take anyone's dreams. But why let the facts interfere with the narrative? By the way, it would be nice if Yossi Mizrahi would take a moment to wonder why Arabs can buy an apartment in Pisgat Ze'ev or Rehavia, and Jews can not buy an apartment anywhere they want in Jerusalem. In general, if Mizrahi was less empathetic to violence and violence, he would find that against the Jews living in the area of the Arab whom he interviewed terrorism is perpetrated on a regular basis. But, as mentioned, the facts did not have much place in this article. In any case, after concluding an interview with another representative of a left-wing organization who told him that "Israel's war is a demographic war against the Palestinians in Jerusalem," Mizrahi concluded that "the land dispute here also contributes to unrest in other parts of the city." So what did we have here? Did we hear in this article what "on the Arab side claimed", did we hear in it what "on the Jewish side claimed", and News 12? They probably have no position on which of the parties is right. They have not seen violence, they have not seen riots, and if they have seen - they can understand them.
Do not come from love
Why is it amazing to me to accept this violence as a legitimate and obvious thing? Because over the weekend, Arabs in Jerusalem attacked the Ministry of Justice building and the district court building opposite it. Security cameras were broken, the entrance floor to the office - which houses the offices of the Attorney General, the State Attorney and the Minister of Justice - was strewn with large stones. The windows of vehicles that were in the closed office parking lot, surrounded by a fence and secured, were smashed to pieces. There is no way to see it but as an attack on a governmental institution, one of the central ones. Now try to remember how broad the journalistic preoccupation was with this issue, if you have ever encountered such a preoccupation. What did you encounter? While blaming the police, while imposing responsibility on fences, while trying to explain that without the march of the Lehavah organization there would have been peace and quiet here. Avishai Grinzig revealed this week in "Globes" that against the background of this Arab violence, Ministry of Justice employees were instructed not to come to work by public transport, and not to stay in the building after seven o'clock in the evening. Do you understand? Employees of the Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel were banned from staying in their offices after 19:00 due to fear of the Arab rioters, and entire media dealt with the question of whether the commissioner was right or wrong in deciding to put some fences at the entrance to the Old City. A few days before the start of the Jerusalem round of violence, the head of the yeshiva in Jaffa and the administration were attacked by two Arabs. One of them, as revealed by Yishai Friedman in Makor Rishon, is a big fan of Hitler and Osama bin Laden, and the tune is back again. That same evening, Arabs took to the streets raging, smashing windows, firing fireworks, throwing stones and lynching a Jewish driver. And what does the media do? Looking for a proper explanation for their actions. After all, it is impossible for Arabs to harm Jews if there is no good reason for it. Hence, the road was short for a media discussion on the question of whether it was good or not good to have a Torah center in Jaffa, and exactly what land Rabbi Eliyahu Mali wanted to purchase (Jewish-owned land). As if it changes something, and as if it is a given that can perhaps explain the violence against it. I do not at all want to imagine what our media would have done to Joshua Hankin, who lived in Jaffa in his youth, and from what I understand - bought here and there some Western lands. I saw some left-wing spokesmen in the media, who tried to explain that the fact that there were no casualties on the Jewish side indicates that proportions should be maintained. After all, no one has paid here in his life, and we have been through more difficult things. It seems to me that the opposite is true. These events are serious and difficult precisely because they are popular. Precisely because behind them is not a trained terrorist cell of Islamic Jihad. Precisely because of the masses, the daring, the impudence and the antisemitic nature. Yes, antisemitic. Bands of Arabs roamed Jerusalem seeking to beat people with a Jewish-ultra-Orthodox appearance. If we were to see in Austria a video of a neo-Nazi photographing himself stepping on Jewish gravestones, like the Arab who did it this week on the Mount of Olives, we would be shocked. If we were to see videos documenting the attack on ultra-Orthodox Jews in France, we would be talking about a wave of anti-Semitism. Only when this happens to us can the media emotionally connect to the motive of the attackers, crowning such anti-Semitic incidents with cute and harmless names, like the "Tiktok Intifada." Journalist Gideon Dokov examined and found that almost every time the media uses the term "hate crime," it refers to Jewish actions against Arabs. When Arabs attack Jews, Dokov concluded, it probably comes from love. And if you're looking for another example to illustrate what is written here, go to the words of MK Ayman Odeh - the moderate Arab, as the media likes to refer to him. And the gates of liberated Jerusalem, "he wrote on his Facebook page, adding:" Congratulations from the coastal plain, the Galilee, the triangle and the Negev to the young people of Jerusalem who are revolting against the occupation. " Now, close your eyes and imagine what would happen if hundreds or thousands of price tag boys were to break, and hit, and throw Molotov cocktails, and smash windshields, and Bezalel Smotrich would greet them for that on Facebook. What a commotion God would have raised here. But for Arab Knesset members, it passes without a blink of an eye. Without a single news release feeling like it's a crossing of all the red lines. In fact, if we are not interested in Arab Knesset members embracing terrorists who murdered Jews, why should we be intimidated by their words when they praise the rioters in Jerusalem?
There is no lie and truthThis story, about violence on both sides, is a false story that the press has been cultivating for years. A story where there are no bad and good, no attackers and victims, no lies and truth. Each has its own narrative. At best we do not take a clear stand on the question of who is right. In the least good case, we connect to the wrong side. All media coverage comes from this place, and anyone who does not want to be a victim of this propaganda - certainly on "hot" days between Arabs and Jews - is better off not turning on the radio.

The exclusion of a "racist motive" in the indictments against Arabs stems from the prosecution's distorted perception that the Arabs are doing so against the background of "discrimination" or against a "nationalist" background.
There is no such thing as a nationalist background. Any Arab attack on Jews, being Jews, is on a racial background.The Jews who attacked did so against the background of self-defense

The .. flood of violent incidents that have taken place across the country in the past week, the vast majority of them were directed against Jews - Contrary to what is reflected here:
Arab rioters passed last night (Wednesday), this is the second evening, among all the businesses of the Jews in the city of Acre, they are set on fire one by one, and if there are Jews inside who can be killed - then it is fine. The fact that the citizens of Arab Acre will also sink into unemployment and poverty as a result did not interest them, in the face of the sublime value of war against the Jews.
An over 80-year-old Jew who was trapped in the Effendi hotel on fire is still fighting for his life at the hospital. Lynch attempts were made in Lod, Tamra and Acre and also in Jerusalem at the beginning of the week, but who even remembers. Arab rioters on the other side of the Green Side murdered a five-year-old Jewish boy who disguised himself last Purim as a ninja turtle, a foreign worker from India, a woman from Holon who was on her way home, a father and daughter from Lod. Many Jews were also injured last night in Lod by live ammunition, stones, rocks, Molotov cocktails and fires. In Haifa, 60 people were injured by smoke inhalation caused by the burning of Jewish cars. This is a partial list that in part, not even a tenth of all the events of the week.
[N12 coverage on security clearance: Jews were stabbed in Lod and Jerusalem, in Acre a hotel was set on fire. Documentation from Haifa: The moment of the arson in which 26 people were injured. Cruel lynching of a Jew in Tamra: "They wanted to set me on fire"]
... From our acquaintance with the State (of Israel) treatment of the few Jewish extremists, it will be carried out: "Kach" outlawed, the only representatives the High Court disqualified from driving to the Knesset were Jews. Where are the broadcasters all shocked by the wholesale assassination attempts against Jews?
No, there is no symmetry, despite the clumsy attempts to invent it even before the L. in Bat Yam. These are not "conflicts in the mixed cities" but an attack by Arab rioters on Jewish citizens, their property, their families and their holy places. This is not "mutual violence" but a huge wave of attacks on coexistence, against which a handful of Jews are now rising ... in a few places in the country. A quarter of an hour after the lynching in Bat Yam, my phone had already collapsed with condemnation, without "but" and without "about", of all the country's top officials, from President Rivlin to (Betzalel) Smutrich (Smotrich). Why did it take more than a day for Arab Knesset members to stop stuttering (and not all of them)? And how is it that we have not yet heard one clear, one condemnation! from the (Arab) Joint List RAA"M against the Hamas' heinous shooting that killed an Arab citizen and his daughter on Tuesday morning? If Arab criminal criminals had attacked Arab civilians in Lod, their cry would have gone to heaven, and rightly so. Of yesteryear: stuttering, fragmented, and belated.
[Documentation: Ambulance attack in Umm al-Fahm]
Anyone who tries by force, all his life, to produce symmetry, seeks to broadcast as if there is a Belfast-style civil war here, between two nations or two religions. But it is not. Since the dawn of Zionism, Jews have recognized the Arab presence, but Arabs have not recognized the Jewish presence.
Gaza could have lived in peace and prosperity if it had not decided to shatter our walls with hatred. Lod could flourish, too, and Acre flourished, until this alarming wave of hatred erupted. No Jewish lynching was ever carried out, just for no reason, on the residents of Arab Haifa, Arab Jaffa, Arab Lod or Arab Ramla. Jews have never rioted at the Western Wall against the Arabs on the Temple Mount, quite the opposite. And they further dare to say that al-Aqsa is in danger.
[A Jew stabbed in Acre, smoke in the port. Disorders in Acre]This distorted symmetry can also cost human lives: as long as the State of Israel refuses to recognize the situation, it will delay sending troops to the cities involved, just as the imposition of the curfew in Lod has been delayed. It is also worthwhile to give some thought to the psychological need for flogging the chest under fire. But not now. There is no time, and no symmetry.
- Dr. Oz Gutterman, The thunderous stutter of the Arab MKs fuels the rioters, Globes, 13.05.2021.
The real cause of the attacks is not barriers at the entrance to the Nablus Gate nor the violence of the police, but the public atmosphere on the Arab street - Instead of taking responsibility, the automatic response of the Arab leadership in Israel is to blame the Jewish institutions.
A few weeks ago, Eli Rosen went for a walk with his dog on Shmuel Hanavi Street in Jerusalem, ostensibly for another regular walk, when a group of several dozen young Israeli Arabs recognized him and started shouting "Yahud, Yahud." The young men beat him on all sides with iron bars, kicking all over his body. Eli's only "crime" was being a Jew. Two vertebrae were broken and he suffered severe bleeding. The fact that he survived is a miracle. The real cause of this attack is not barriers at the entrance to the Nablus Gate nor police violence, but the public atmosphere on the Arab street. The first incident of the round of riots we are experiencing at this time was uploaded by a young Arab to the TikTok network. In the shocking documentation, reminiscent of dark periods in Jewish history, the attacker approached a yeshiva boy and beat him violently, to the joyous joy of his friends cheering him from behind. And what is the fault of the yeshiva guy? Just being a Jew.
Try to imagine the opposite situation - a young Jew would upload a video to Tiktok, when he approached an Arab guy, whose only sin was that he was riding a bus, and hit him hard in the face, to the sound of his friends rejoicing. What was the reasonable reaction in Jewish society to such a case? Deep shock is likely. The Israeli media was tumultuous, and rightly so. The condemnations of politicians would come from the right and the left, and with them the questions would begin to arise, what in education and discourse in our society causes weeds to act racistly.
This response of society is correct and important; This is a response that reflects an aversion to violence, and rightly so for a reformed civil society. Knowing that anyone who behaves racistly and violently towards Arabs will be condemned and condemned on all sides, prevents extremists and violent people from realizing their desires.
But the tiktok video that brutally beat a man who committed a crime for actually being a Jew was not condemned, and the Palestinian media did not bring up shocking and disgusting articles. On the contrary - he received positive and encouraging responses from all sides. What fuels the violence of the rioters who seek opportunity to harm Jews is public legitimacy. The perpetrators of the riots are not the rioters, as they are only the end product of broad public conduct in which Palestinian teachers, parents, politicians, artists and media outlets legitimize violence.
Arab Knesset members choose to remain silent
When thousands of Arab rioters search in the street for potential Jewish victims, Arab Knesset members, instead of condemning murderous racism, instead of asking what in our society's discourse legitimizes violence and racism, they simply choose to remain silent, and in some cases even back the rioters.
It is important to understand that responses such as "we are against violence on both sides" or "it is the police who create the violence" constitute overt support for the attackers and their encouragement to hunt down the next Jew. Instead of taking responsibility, the automatic response of the Arab leadership in Israel is to blame the Jewish institutions, thereby actually justifying and backing up the violence. Whoever attacks others because of their race, whoever throws bricks and irons, thereby endangering the lives of policemen, must not explain what the "justification" for his actions is; It must first be condemned and any other response is support for violence. Those responsible for harming the Jews who are being attacked and for harming the Arab rioters who are attacking are first and foremost the Arab Knesset members who to this day have filled their mouths with water, and even now they have decided to respond in most cases unwillingly, and of course all those Israeli bodies that legitimized the violent racism of those MKs.Anyone who sees extreme and murderous violence against people whose main "crime" is actually being Jews, and does not go out of their way to combat this phenomenon, is dark and racist. This is true ... also when it comes to a gynecologist or dentist dressed in a suit and speaking in high and beautiful language.

...sequence of events: The wave of violence in Jerusalem – and the Jewish-Arab tensions that ensued – began almost a month before the situation in the city led to a war in Gaza. On April 15th, a Palestinian youngster from Jerusalem uploaded to his TikTok account a video showing him without provocation harshly slapping a Jewish religious teen riding in the city’s light rail.
Soon afterwards, attacks on Jewish bystanders became a trend. Many young Arabs started uploading countless – dozens if not hundreds – of videos to TikTtok in which they are seen attacking policemen, humiliating ultra-orthodox passers–by, and beating them with severe violence.
At that moment, Haaretz was still silent on the phenomenon; the newspaper started reporting on the tension in Jerusalem only on April 22nd, after the Jewish extreme-right organization Lehava held a parade in the eastern part of the city, in which racist slurs against Arabs were chanted.
Even then, 'Haaretz' hid the reason for the tension from its readers. When its Jerusalem correspondent Nir Hasson was criticized for the blatant omission, he responded on the TikTok terror: “those are ugly incidents but not exactly the worst terrorism we’ve seen… a slap, throwing a cup of coffee and a few stones are not breaking news…”
The Jerusalem tensions that were initiated by the attacks against Jews led, on April 24th, to the firing of 36 rockets and mortar shells from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel. This barrage was met with a very mild Israeli response, with the intent of preventing further escalation.
One week later, on April 30th, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced he was delaying the Palestinian elections, which should have been held on May 22nd. Hamas, which was expected to perform well in the elections, called Abbas’ announcement ‘a coup’ and added that if the elections were cancelled, Israel would be held accountable. The organization’s spokesperson stated:
Postponing the election is not justified and we oppose it. [This is] … a surrender to the will of the occupier. There is an opportunity to turn this refusal into an open popular campaign against Israel in Jerusalem. [emphasis added]
And so the popular campaign began; the legal battle in Sheikh-Jarrah was the pretext that Hamas initially used, while the Israeli government tried to prevent the ensuing escalation.
On May 7th, at the request of the Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Minister of Internal Security Amir Ohana, MK Itamar Ben-Gvir vacated the parliamentary office he had opened in Sheikh Jarrah (although he had the legal right to keep it open).
The next evening, on May 8th, the ‘Laylat al-Qadr’ prayer was held at the Temple Mount. It quickly turned into an extreme riot that included hurling stones, rocks and Molotov cocktails which were pre-prepared on the Mount and thrown at policemen, many of whom were injured.
The riot was planned in advance, among other things by transporting thousands of extremist Islamic activists from northern Israel to the Temple Mount.
The next day, May 9th, Haaretz correspondent Nir Hasson reported that stones were hurled at the Western Wall Plaza.
The same day the Israeli government took another step to calm the situation, by requesting the Supreme Court to postpone the hearing on the eviction of the Palestinian families for non-payment of rent from Jewish-owned houses in Sheikh Jarrah. It should be noted that the schedule of the legal proceedings on the matter were set long in advance, by the court.
On May 10th, the government took another drastic step towards conciliation, despite the heavy public cost involved: it announced the closure of the Temple Mount for Jews for at least a week (eventually, the closure lasted for 19 consecutive days).
The same day, Prime Minister Netanyahu made an additional decision to calm the tensions – he ordered to change the Jerusalem Day’s Flag Parade route.
Later that day, which was Jerusalem Day, the Flag Parade was diverted from its regular route.
To review, in order to deescalate the situation and maintain calm:
1.) Israel’s reacted with restraint to volleys of Hamas missiles two weeks before the blowup.
2.) The Israeli government closed the Temple Mount to Jews
3.) MK Ben-Gvir vacated his office from Sheikh Jarrah
4.) The Supreme Court hearing on the Sheikh Jarrah case was postponed
After all this, Hamas made it clear that it would use the postponement of the Palestinian elections to “open a popular campaign against Israel in Jerusalem,” and on that day of May 10th, Hamas launched a heavy barrage of rockets on Jerusalem.
Immediately after, the Arab anti-Jewish violence in Jerusalem spread throughout the country. In mixed Jewish-Arab towns such as Lod, Acre, Jaffa and others, hundreds of Arabs gathered to attack Jewish passers-by, throw rocks at driving cars, vandalizing and burning Jewish-owned businesses, houses, vehicles and synagogues. Several lynchings also occurred....data from Israel’s Fire and rescue services for May 16th shows a clear picture: 10 burned synagogues compared to 0 burned mosques, 28 mosques that were used to organize for violent riots compared to 0 synagogues, 112 burned Jewish houses compared to one burned Arab house (by Arabs), 673 damaged Jewish houses compared to 13 Arab houses, 849 burnt Jewish-owned cars compared to Arab-owned 13 cars. All these and more point to the fact that almost all of the violence and rioting was carried out by Israeli Arabs against Israeli Jews.
Tracking this week’s antisemitic rage.' Louis Keene, Forward, May 20, 2021. https://forward.com/news/470015/tracking-this-weeks-antisemitic-rage/ Young Jewish Americans rocked by new hate fueled by Israel-Palestinian conflict, Mallory Simon, CNN, 25 May 2021 "Brussels Denounces Anti-Semitic 'Attacks' In EU" By AFP - Agence France Presse.

The span of these attacks, they spread like wildfire across the country. You mentioned a few, California, Arizona, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Florida, acts of harassment and vandalism and violence.
So, number one, the span is much greater than what we have seen, but secondly the tone, the brazenness, the audacity of these assaults in broad daylight. We have seen people basically say, if you are wearing a Jewish star, you must be a Zionist and you should be killed.
We have seen people hurling bottles and objects at homes with mezuzot on the door that were identifiably Jewish. We have seen people driving cars or marauding through Jewish neighborhoods and yelling, "We're going to rape your women," right, or yelling things like "Allahu akbar," and literally then wreaking physical violence on people.
And one of the incidents that was captured was in broad daylight in Times Square, a group of people beating and bloodying a Jewish man whose only crime was he was wearing a kippah, to the point where he was left unconscious in the street while people kicked him, bloodied him with like crutches.
... Well, let's be clear. None of the people committing these crimes wearing MAGA hats, right?
The reality is.. I do believe that political language can have real world consequences. But this is very different kind of political language... in this case, we have people waving Palestinian flags and then beating Jewish people. And, in this case, you know what I might really draw a parallel to is the hate crimes committed against Asian Americans, where unhinged, fictionalized conspiracies about China first spouted by political leaders led to real-world consequences, as Asian Americans were attacked on the streets.
Well, today, we have unhinged, fictionalized conspiracies about Israel, that somehow the Jewish state is systematically slaughtering children or committing genocide. And then that leads to real-world attacks on Jewish people in the streets of America, on our campuses, in our communities.So, although, again, the political tenor may be different, the real outcome is the same. And that's why we think people, regardless of where you are on the spectrum, need to speak out clearly and firmly and forcefully and say, in an unambiguous way, that anti-Semitism is unacceptable, because, again, this isn't activism. It's hate, and it should be called out as such.

HATE IN CHICAGO: Arabs Yelling “Kill The Jews” Attack Pro-Israel Rally. May 24, 2021.

Eric Greenstein, "Bennett is right, the Arabs [sector are more criminal]", Mida, 08/02/2015.
... Leading in the percentage of serious crime. The data is extremely serious. In July 2014, the report of the Knesset Research and Information Center dealt with the treatment of serious violence among the Arab sector - which was prepared, by the way, at the request of MK Hanin Zoabi. The report revealed that as of June of last year, 49% of criminal prisoners in Israel belong to the Arab sector. Considering that this is a sector that accounts for about one-fifth of the total population in Israel, this is a particularly high number.
From the report of the Knesset Information and Research Center
The said report is not about vehicle thefts, but about particularly serious offenses. For example, in segmenting the number of cases open by crime, between the years 2006-2006 it became clear that the Arabs (along with other foreigners) are responsible for 55 percent of those suspected of murder, and 49 percent of those accused of murder; 55 percent of those suspected of attempted murder, and 58 percent of those charged with it; And 58 percent of those suspected of serious bodily harm and 45 percent of those guilty of it. In a robbery in serious circumstances, the number was 1,625 non-Jews compared to 1,535 Jews. As can be seen in the charts below, even after deducting other foreign groups that are sometimes included in the statistics, due to the size of the Arab sector in the population, these numbers are extremely high...
It is estimated that in the northern villages and other places there are many thousands of weapons and ammunition that are not in their possession. Or in the words of [Arab] MK Ahmad Tibi, "The quantities of weapons in Arab localities do not embarrass armed militias."In his speech, Minister Bennett added that "this first of all hurts the Arabs." Indeed, the Ministry of Homeland Security's 2014 report 'National Violence Index' segmented the transfers in the Jewish and non-Jewish sectors and concluded that "in most cases the perpetrator and victim are from the same sector." On this issue Bennett gets full backing from [Ahmed] Tibi. Thus, at a meeting of a parliamentary inquiry committee held in February 2012, he said that “internal violence and its spread [in Arab society in Israel] deprives many of sleep. "Sometimes not a day goes by without murder or violence." In 2014, he added that Tibi “The disproportionate rates of crime and murder in Arab-Palestinian society in Israel should not be ignored. "The phenomenon of crime is felt more and more severely than any other part of Palestinian society." And until there is finally an issue in which such cross-border and sectoral agreement has been found, who are we to argue?
Crime in the Arab sector: How many were arrested in 2020? Itzik Saban, Israel Hayom, Jan 12, 2021. ...The police fight against gunfire and weapons in the Arab sector: Data on police activity in the past year indicate a significant increase in the extent of enforcement of weapons offenses in Arab society in Israel. In 2020, which was in the shadow of the fight against the Corona virus, the police increased their activities against weapons offenses and arrested a total of 5,713 suspects in shooting and weapons offenses throughout the country - an increase of about 22% in the number of detainees compared to 2019... 45 murdered since the beginning of the year: In Arab society they are crying out for help, but how can the problem of violence be solved?

The severe violence in the Arab sector, the expansive spread of organized crime in recent years, the enormous amounts of illegal weapons, and the transformation of entire areas of the country into governmental territories, have long become a serious social threat and no less a serious security threat to the State of Israel.
We need to talk about this: Most of those murdered by their spouses are Arabs, Ariel Schnabel, MakorRishon, Oct 21, 2020. 13 out of 19 women murdered this year are Arabs. But the media almost ignores their origins, perhaps for fear of political correctness. Voting for a proven problem is not racism, not stigmatizing the whole public and certainly not something that can be ignored - one must talk about the phenomenon, in order to save the next woman. The number of crimes in Arab society is on the rise, Hezki Baruch - Channel 7, 7 Nissan 5780, April 1, 2020. The report of the Research and Information Center in the Knesset reveals that while in 2019 there was a decrease in crime among the Jewish public, among Israeli Arabs the crime rate continues to rise. Tzvi Joffre, "90% of arrested weapons crime suspects from Arab-Israeli sector." JPost, Jan 12, 2021. The residents of Be'er Sheva no longer trust the police. Hamal, Sep 25, 2021.Apart from the many crime incidents in the Arab sector that characterize the Negev region, there is an equally serious phenomenon in the city, harassment incidents, from which the girls of the city suffer.
The fear of leaving the house in the evening and the risk of wearing shorts or tights have become commonplace among city residents. The glorious vehicles of the minorities (Arabs) roam the city and at night trying to seduce young girls, and when they see a young girl, they start honking at her, shouting and even getting out of their car and trying to touch her with force.
A resident of Be'er Sheva, Michael, told the staff: "We realized that we can no longer trust the municipality or the enforcement forces. Started a number of WhatsApp groups called "Walking Fearlessly in Be'er Sheva". The groups include about 10,000 participants and their goal is to give protection and a sense of security to the city's residents in real time.
"When a girl feels that someone is following her or trying to harass her," says Michael, "she sends her location to the group and usually within a short time one of the volunteers arrives to help her.
Michael clarified that "the aim of the project is to provide security for the residents of the city and not to prosecute the criminals. So far all the incidents in the group have ended without violence, but it is never possible to be safe. At the moment this is the only solution we have.""We can not trust the municipal inspectorate, which constantly eats and drinks at convenient stations and burns the fuel for free, it's just a waste of taxpayers' budget for all of us. The mayor, Rubik Danilovich, does not address the problem either." We demand that the city be closed at night for outsiders to enter."
Violence in Israel’s Arab sector claims 111 lives since early 2020, Daniel Siryoti, JNS, Dec 20, 2020 Chef shot dead, boy stabbed two weeks after graduation: nine killed in 18 days. This month alone, 9 people were murdered in Arab society. Residents do not see an end to the cycle of bloodshed, blame the police - and demand that the contempt, as they say, be stopped by the authorities: "Innocents are murdered and do not know who is next in line. It could reach any of us." Deputy Minister of Internal Security at Ynet Studio: "There will be no change in one day" Hassan Shaalan, Ynet, July 18, 2021. Ahmad stabbed, was run and murdered with graduating. His father: "Arab society - Part of the problem" Hassan Shaalan, Ynet, July 4, 2021 Yossi Ahimair, "The cry of Arab society is justified, but it is impossible for them to throw everything at the police Maariv, Mar 15, 2021.
As long as the Arab demonstrators continue to wave PLO flags in their demonstrations, please do not come to their country with complaints. The police must take care of this as well - the flag of hatred of Israel will not be raised within Israel. ... The accusers of the continuing crime in the Arab localities are directed by their spokespersons, as stated, at the state authorities. However, if the prime minister is to blame - whose government has allocated NIS 15 billion to the Arab sector and opened nine police stations in Arab localities - it can be said that the head of the (Arab) joint list is to blame several times over. It seems that Ayman Odeh and the other Arab public leaders, Knesset members and mayors are more troubled by the distress of the polls ahead of the election than the distress of crime.
Concerns about the state of the (Arab) joint list in the election emerge from their throats as they become more and more extreme. And it is impossible not to wonder: what about the responsibility of Arab society itself? When will the leadership of the Arab sector also begin to properly deal with internal affairs, the wild evening, the rampant violence, the culture of revenge, the free shootings, today in this locality, tomorrow in another locality? What about proper cooperation with the law and order guards, the uniformed blues, many of whom are Arabs, Bedouins, Druze?
I write this out of sympathy for Arab society, but not for its inciting leadership. The cry that arises in the call to put an end to crime in villages, cities in the Triangle, the Galilee and the Negev is certainly understandable. The Jewish neighbors also suffer from it. But it is impossible for them to throw all their love at the police, at the burden of their duties. On the one hand, they want - and rightly so - more policing, more police presence in the localities, on the other hand they shout bitterly against the police, come out strongly against it. The demonstrations and calls directed at the police, begging to enter and act, have changed direction, and the demonstrations and propaganda are against the police and law enforcement agencies. Probably also because of the upcoming elections.
The leaders of the Arab public must begin to act seriously, and not just shout at the government in demonstrations that get out of hand, while uttering derogatory slogans about "racist abandonment," as the outraged MK Yosef Jabarin wrote. It may be appropriate for them to heat up the election campaign in the sector, in the face of worrying polls, but to solve the aggravating crime problem such statements are not helpful.Does not the famous rule of old Hillel (Jewish sage...) “If I am not for myself, who will be for me?” does not speak to Arab society in Israel? Is it not better to cooperate with the police instead of going against it? As the demonstrations escalate in severity, in their messages, in their goals, sympathy for them fades. Moreover, as long as the Arab demonstrators - and they do not represent the majority in Arab society, which increasingly integrates well into all life systems in Israel - continue to wave the PLO flags in their demonstrations, please do not come to their country against which they defy. The police must take care of this as well - the flag of hatred of Israel will not be raised within Israel.

Despite ongoing efforts by Iran and Hezbollah to restore relations with the Syrian government, some experts contend Hamas could lose significant support locally if it were to opt for a full restoration of relations with Damascus. This, analysts say, is because thousands of Palestinian refugees remain in the custody of the Syrian government and areas where Hamas is concentrated intensely felt the impact of government attacks in the early years of the war.

Most of those arrested so far have been Muslims, Turgeman told Kan Radio on Sunday morning.
Turgeman also said that 54 of the detainees are being held under suspicion of attacks with a “racist motive.”
According to police, the unrest was sparked in part by a new social-media trend among young Arabs, which involves physically assaulting visibly Orthodox Jews and posting the attacks on TikTok. The first such video shows an Arab teen slapping a yeshiva student on Jerusalem’s light rail. Since last week, similar incidents have been posted to the popular platform.In one such incident, Eli Rozen, 27, of Jerusalem, was walking his dog when he was set upon by a mob of Palestinians, who beat him severely while filming the attack. Rozen, who believes he narrowly escaped death, described recent events in the city as a “third intifada.”

In the State of Israel, a terrorist campaign is being conducted by young Arabs against Jews in various locations in Israel. In Jerusalem, Jaffa, Lod, Ramla and more. These are dozens of particulars and perhaps even more Arab rioters attack principally Jews, young Jews mainly of Jewish / religious / Haredi / ultra-Orthodox appearance, while degrading the Jews being attacked and uploading the clips of violence and degradation on social media. Most of the instances are not publicized and not known, especially when the attacked are not complaining and absorb the anti-Semitic disorders as if it is a thing of a routine. On the few times the rioters were caught, it was the police who located the attacked and demanded that they file a complaint,The current police minister is a total failure in the subject and a total failure in the treatment of Arab violence in the Negev and north.

Internet companies and authorities are also responsible: the distribution of videos showing Palestinians beating and humiliating ultra-Orthodox would be reduced if the companies put all their emphasis on the war on hate speech, and the authorities were really enforcing and punishing - meanwhile it is "mild" violence, but it could quickly lead to murder.

A screen shot of the Arab slapping the boy on the train, April 14.
The Yerushalayim District Prosecutor’s Office has submitted to the city’s Magistrates Court for Youth an indictment against a 17-year-old Arab, who attacked chareidi teenagers on the Light Rain Train in Yerushalayim last month.
The indictment charged the Arab with an attack due to racist motives, and harm to privacy.
According to the indictment, on April 14, the suspect boarded the train at the Safra Square station, together with six other minors.
A few minutes later, at the Shimon Hatzadik station, two chareidim boarded the train and sat down on one of the benches in the train car that the group was sitting in.
The suspect noticed the chareidim and decided to attack them. When the train arrived at the Shu’afat station, the suspect approached the chareidim, waved his hand, and forcefully slapped their faces, as the entire event was being filmed by his friend.
As a result of the suspect’s actions, one of the chareidi boys suffered strong pains in his cheek, and his glasses were broken. The second chareidi felt pain and his glasses flew off his face due to the force behind the slap. According to the indictment, the suspect then sent the video clip of the attack to several other people.
Later, the video clip reached another person, who spread it to many others on social media, captioned in Arabic with the words, “You’ll continue erasing, and I’ll continue uploading, it’s either the Palestinian nation or you.”At the same time, the Prosecutor’s Office also submitted a request to extend the suspect’s release under restrictive conditions.

According to the indictment, about two weeks ago in the evening, the Arab walked with his friends on the bridge leading from IDF Square to the Jaffa Gate.
The Arab approached one of them and unexpectedly kicked us in the waist. The force of the kick was repelled on a low fence and fell on the other side of it. Immediately afterwards, the defendant continued to walk along the bridge, approached M. and slapped him hard on the cheek, resulting in M.'s dome being thrown over the bridge. While M. moves away from the defendant and bends down to lift the dome, an object is thrown at him by another person and M. begins to flee the scene.
According to the indictment, part of the assault incident was filmed by the defendant's friend, apparently so that the Jews could multiply in the assault and mock them.The prosecution asked the court to order the arrest of the defendant until the end of the proceedings against him.

So, a group of about 6 young people from minorities [Arabs] approached the complainant, from the opposite direction. "One of them, moved away from the rest, and violently attacked the complainant, when he forcibly hit the complainant's body with his shoulder," Advocate Steiner described.
The Jew who was attacked immediately contacted a police officer who was nearby. "The policeman immediately detained the attacker, who said that 'he does not know why he attacked the victim,'" the appeal stated. According to the appeal, during the police investigation, the assailant admitted to assaulting the Jew due to racist motives:
Interrogator: "The interrogation material shows that you did not just come across it and you pushed it, right?" Attacker: "True". Interrogator: "Do you hate Jews?" Attacker: "Yes" ... Interrogator: "Did you push the Jew because he is a Jew?" Attacker: "Yes" Interrogator: "How did you push him?" Attacker: "On my shoulder" Interrogator: "Do you know that means you did it racist?" Attacker: "Yes." In addition, Advocate Steiner referred to the many materials proving the assault. "Hence, there is evidence in the evidence to prove the complainant's assault by the assailant, out of racist motive, in accordance with the standard required in criminal law," Advocate Steiner argued. He said the closure of the case could set a precedent that would endanger the safety of other civilians. "First and foremost - safeguarding public safety and preventing violent incidents arising from a racist-nationalist motive. Closing a case in such a serious case is contrary to the position of the legislature as to the seriousness of the acts, and may harm the security of citizens," added Adv. Steiner in the appeal. Finally, Advocate Steiner demanded that the case be reopened and that the defendant be brought to justice. The police stated in response that "as soon as the incident occurred, an investigation was opened during which all the professional actions were taken to arrive at the truth investigation, and after the investigation was completed, the case was transferred for review and the prosecutor's decision as usual."

Presspectiva: The wave of violence in Jerusalem began on April 15, when a young Arab man from Jerusalem uploaded to Tiktok his documentation of a powerful slap in the face, so to speak, to an ultra-Orthodox boy on the light rail. The trend soon spread and many young Arabs began to upload countless videos in which they were seen attacking police officers, humiliating ultra-Orthodox passers-by and beating them with severe violence. In the online edition, Haaretz devoted a small, secret and marginal article by the reporter on ultra-Orthodox affairs to document the slap in the face that started the wave. Since then, and throughout the countless records of attacks by Jewish passers-by by Arabs, I have not seen any documentation of the phenomenon in Haaretz. Six days later, in response to the flood of videos of ultra-Orthodox attacks, the far-right organization .. decided to march defiantly in the east of the city. Against Arabs in Jerusalem...

A 24-year-old man from the a-Tour neighborhood in Jerusalem was charged following an attack by Border Police officers disguised as ultra-Orthodox. The police arrested two people after one of them sprayed tear gas into their car.
The attack on two Border Police undercover operatives about ten days ago in the a-Tor neighborhood of Jerusalem ended today (Monday) with the filing of an indictment against 24-year-old Lui Stlyah (Loui Stliah), a resident of the area.
The policemen asked a group of young people how to get to the Mount of Olives cemetery, then one of the young men approached the car and sprayed tear gas. The officers got out of the car, fired into the air for a warning and arrested two suspects.
According to the indictment, the police officers were traveling on Rabaa al-Adawiya Street between Augusta Victoria Hospital and al-Makassed Hospital. At the time, the defendant was sitting at a bus stop near al-Makassed Hospital along with several other young men. He carried a folding knife and tear gas spray.
The police identified the young men and stopped the car next to them. The policeman sitting next to the driver opened the window and asked for directions to the cemetery on the Mount of Olives. The young people approached the vehicle. One of them explained how to get to the cemetery, adding "this time we will be nice to you. Come out so they don't throw stones at you." Before the officers left the scene, the defendant approached the car and sprayed tear gas through the open window, "and all for racist motives or due to hostility towards the public because of religion," the indictment said.Border police undercover officers arrested two of the suspects who tried to attack the forces.

The court ruled that the attackers in Jaffa did not act out of nationalist motives, but a brief browse on his Facebook page reveals quite a bit of antisemitic content.
The flipping of the nationalist, racist and anti-Semitic motives was very rapid. Too fast. Because in the story of the two attackers, members of the Garbua family, there is a lot of art and hatred of Jews... From conversations I had with Jewish residents in Jaffa who experienced harassment from their Arab neighbors, it turns out that this is not the first time that one of the brothers, Ahmad Garbua, has harassed someone who he saw as a Jew.... Ahmad Garbua was the one who said, according to his testimony in the interrogation and according to the testimony of R' Eliyahu Mali who was attacked, that "Jews will not be in Jaffa." I do not know, to me it sounds like a distinctly racist and anti-Jewish statement.
A year ago a number of Arabs beat up a yeshiva student who went to solitude on the promenade; A few weeks ago, a Jewish boy filed a complaint with the police against Arab boys who beat him and called him a "J. dog." There is a lot of violence and anti-Semitism in Jaffa, we just do not see it and are certainly less interested in hearing about it. All this until a strictly antisemitic image of two violently beating Jews with a religious appearance explodes in our face.
Jews in Jaffa, mostly religious, experience violence and anti-Semitism every week that includes beatings and harassment. The Israeli police act and stop attackers in case of a complaint, but the atmosphere among the authorities (court, municipality and also the police), quite a few locals tell me, is to sweep under the rug the nationalist and racist issue. When Arab boys beat a yeshiva student just like that on a clear day, it is a "brawl," with no nationalist or racist background, just a local criminal incident. These incidents are not reported or defined, neither by state authorities nor by the media, as hate crimes as is customary in... But everyone knows and understands that the motive is a great hatred for the presence of Jews in these places. But what makes the dance of righteousness and inclusion of the left particularly embarrassing are the publications over the years of Ahmad Garbua in which he is revealed as one who is not ashamed to spread anti-Semitism, hatred of Jews and much to Palestinian art. Not a neighbors' conflict but a national-religious struggle in which it is expressed that the Jews are "the sons of the monkeys and the pigs" and shows great enthusiasm from people like Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein... Garbou also revealed his sincere appreciation to people like Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler. "May Allah have mercy on you, you lion," he wrote of bin Laden in 2013...
In 2014 he wrote admiringly of Hitler and also... In another status that year he wrote that he prayed that Allah would have mercy on the soul of the "martyr Hitler". (Ahmad Mohamad Garbou, Sep 6, 2014).
A video of admiration for Hitler in the Arabic language he uploaded, censored by YouTube...accusing Netanyahu of "becoming Hitler", and wrote that "Hitler left people like you so the world can see what Zionism is."
Sara Ha'etzni-Cohen, "Israel's iron fist is anything but", Oct 7, 2021.
The Arab Israelis that attacked Rabbi Mali in Jaffa were known antisemitic nationalists, yet the police prosecutor failed to note the racial motive behind the attack.
R. Eliyahu Mali is a resident of Jaffa and the head of Shirat Moshe Hesder Yeshiv in the city. Around six months ago, he and a colleague were violently assaulted when two Arabs began to kick, curse, and threaten them in broad daylight. In their resourcefulness, Mali's colleague documented the incident, something that resulted in his hospitalization. These were the days leading up to the riots of May 2021, and the images were widely distributed and resulted in a public outcry.
This week, the sense of shock grew following reports of the plea deal reached with the attackers, Ahmed and Mahmoud Garbua. In return for their confession, a ridiculous plea deal was signed that will see them sentenced to between five and nine months of community service. It is absolutely insane that the Israeli Police Prosecution and Tel Aviv Magistrate Court Judge Roy Perry both signed off on this agreement.
The police prosecutor did not even bother to assign a racial motive to the attack, something that would have resulted in more severe punishment. They failed to do this despite the fact that, as they were hitting and kicking and explicitly threatening the victims' lives, they shouted that "Jaffa will not have Jews." One of the attackers has a rich history of posting nationalist and antisemitic content on social media, including praise for Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, videos on "J. dogs and America," and "the truth about the sons of monkeys and pigs." He has also expressed a desire for the liberation of "occupied Jaffa." And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Racial motive? What racial motive?Israelis are even more frustrated by the plea deal because all the facts are known. We know the Garbua brothers attacked Mali because they are antisemitic nationalists. The Garbua brothers know it too. Everyone knows this and admits as much behind closed doors. It is, however, a little difficult to prove. That is why they opted for the easier solution. Another question that needs to be asked is: Why did they even have to reach such a lenient plea deal in return for the brothers' confession when images of the violence exist in which the attackers' faces can clearly be seen? Everything is documented, and it is clear that they are guilty. Why, then, would you lighten their sentence in return for them confessing the obvious?

Judge Mintz reiterated the ruling that "the need for deterrence remains the same even when it comes to a residence where minors live." The judges rejected the family's claim that Shalabi suffered from mental problems, and ruled that he carried out the attack out of a nationalist motive.The judges also rejected petitioners' claim that the building where the family lives does not serve as the home of Shalabi, whose center of life is in the U.S. According to family members, Shalabi lives and works in the U.S., where he married three other women, one of whom also has another child. The judges ruled that Shalabi himself noted that the house, where he had previously lived with his parents, was transferred to his possession after their deaths and that he used to live in it for a period of two months each year.

M. Zigdon, They lynched a Jew and tried to set fire to a bus with the passengers on the way to Ma'ale Adumim, News at Mahle Net, 23/06/2021.
A sharp indictment was filed against three Arabs from the east of the city who lynched Aviah Antman - two of them were indicted for attempting to set fire to a bus near the Naomi Shemer tunnel with Molotov cocktails that only luckily did not hit the bus - the three were arrested until the end of the proceedings.
The State Attorney's Office filed an indictment in the Jerusalem District Court last Sunday against Omar Jaber (25), Ashraf Jaber (24) and Yusef Jaber (18), residents of East Jerusalem, for involvement in a lynching of Aviah Antman, shortly after he proposed Marriage to his partner in Beit Hachoshen in the At-Tur neighborhood. Two of them are accused of throwing Molotov cocktails at a bus after the Mount Scopus tunnel, and only luckily the bus was not hit or caught on fire.
The three are accused of a terrorist act of aggravated intentional sabotage, rioting and intentional sabotage a vehicle, racially motivated. The prosecution requested that their detention be extended until the end of the proceedings, and the court granted the request.
According to the indictment, on the evening of May 9, Antman arrived with his partner, Shachar Cohen, at the Hoshen House on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, where he proposed marriage to her. The two then continued their journey towards the Beit Orot neighborhood in the city, and around eight o'clock in the evening when they reached the a-Tor junction, some rioters who recognized that they were Jews - started running after the vehicle while shouting "Settler, son of a b#tch."
The three defendants, who were driving in front of the couple's vehicle, heard the shouts and understood that they were Jews. Defendant Omar, who was driving the vehicle, suddenly braked and blocked the couple's vehicle to prevent them from continuing their journey, so that the rioters could attack them "for ideological-nationalist motives because they were Jews," the indictment said. The rioters began throwing stones at the couple while inside the vehicle, breaking its rear window.
At one point Aviah got out of the vehicle and was caught by the rioters, who beat him all over his body while he was lying on the floor. Defendants Omar and Yusef also joined them. At the same time, Shahar also escaped from the vehicle, hid behind another vehicle and called the police. During the incident Avia was beaten using a police checkpoint, sticks, a sharp object and even a full axle can that hit his head. This is in addition to the slaps, punches and kicks he received on all parts of his body. Defendant Ashraf remained in the vehicle at the time of the incident, and later entered the driver’s seat and moved it.
The indictment states that Aviah finally managed to escape from the rioters and return to his vehicle, then drove to the nearby Beit Orot neighborhood and called the border forces. As a result of the attack he sustained numerous bruises and two stab wounds in the back.
Defendants Ashraf and Yusef Jaber are charged with additional offenses they committed in another incident that occurred two days later. They are charged with a terrorist act of attempted arson, action with a weapon for terrorist purposes, throwing or firing a stone or object at a vehicle, intentionally sabotaging out of a racist motive and an act of terrorism with aggravated intentional sabotage.
Molotov cocktails on a bus in a tunnel
The indictment states that on May 11, around 9 pm, the two met at the Flower Gate in Jerusalem, together with another person, Fares Jaber. The three planned to throw stones and Molotov cocktails at an Egged bus traveling in the direction of Ma'ale Adumim and passing on the main street below the At-Tur neighborhood, "in order to set it on fire out of nationalist-ideological motives, due to being a Jewish company bus and to harm Jewish passengers using the bus." In the indictment.
The three went to Yusef's house, and on the way collected glass bottles they found. When they arrived at the house, Yusef filled the bottles with gasoline from a generator in his house, and packed them with glue. The three set off after leaving their cell phones at home so they could not be traced through locations.
The indictment states that the three marched in masked clothes on the road to Ma'ale Adumim in the direction of the a-Za'im checkpoint, when they noticed two tires on the way. Fares placed them on the road in order to slow down the movement of vehicles and allow the stones and Molotov cocktails to be thrown at them. At around ten o'clock at night, an Egged bus passed by, where an Arab citizen was driving and between 10 and 15 passengers were traveling on it.After crossing the Naomi Shemer tunnel and noticing the burning tires, the driver slowed down, instructing the passengers to lie down on the floor. The defendants threw large stones at the bus and threw Molotov cocktails. One of the bottles hit the right side of the bus, fell to the floor and did not catch fire. The other two hit the ground.
Y Kraus, Antisemitism in Acre is reminiscent of darker times, JPost, May 13, 2022.
These disturbing scenes are reminiscent of darker times in Jewish history, when we were powerless at the hands of our non-Jewish neighbors.
May 11, 2021, was a watershed for Jewish-Arab relations in Israel, especially in my hometown of Acre. On that day, hundreds of Arab residents took to the streets, motivated by their hatred of Jews. They sought to murder, burn and destroy. These scenes were repeated in mixed cities throughout the country, such as Ramle and Lod. Living in Acre, I honestly feared for my life, as well of those of my family and friends. 
In Acre, after four days of rioting, more than 60 Jewish-owned businesses were burned, destroyed or looted.  Three Jews were lynched by Arab mobs in the city center. A year later, they continue to suffer severe disabilities and require serious medical care. For four full days, the police and the authorities did not step in to quell the looting and lawlessness.
The terrorists that took to the streets also targeted Jewish-owned hotels and hostels, while Jews hid inside. Trapped in one burning building was acclaimed Israeli aerospace scientist Avi Har-Even, 85, who later succumbed to his wounds. Har-Even had previously been awarded the prestigious Israel Defense Prize for his working in developing life-saving security technologies.
Of course, these violent terrorists do not represent all Arab residents of Acre. That being said, the rioters cannot be dismissed as irrelevant or insignificant. Twenty thousand Arabs live in Acre, and several hundreds of them are our enemy. They have been emboldened by what they see as victory over the Jews and are waiting for another round. These Arab radicals are violent, dangerous and waiting to strike again at the Jews.
Since the May riots, the antisemitic harassment and violence has continued. Our children’s schools have been the targets of violence. Young Arab boys regularly throw stones at Jewish school children, spit and curse them. After 7 p.m., Jews do not walk in the city center or the beach promenade. They are scared of being attacked by Arab thugs. Every Friday night, when religious Jews walk to synagogues in the city center, Arab youths regularly harass them, insult and humiliate them.
[A CAR is set aflame during clashes between Arabs and Jews in Acre, May 12. (credit: RONI OFER/FLASH90)]
There is a trend of Jewish emigration from mixed cities, accelerated by Arab aggression. A friend of mine lives near City Hall, where he is the last Jew left in his building. He lives on a street that was completely Jewish twenty years ago. Every Saturday, Arab children throw stones at his porch and windows. They make sure to get his laundry dirty, in order to make him leave his home. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident.
These disturbing scenes are reminiscent of darker times in Jewish history, when we were powerless at the hands of our non-Jewish neighbors. They should have been relegated to Kishinev or Baghdad in the 1900s, not the sovereign Jewish state in 2022.
This situation did not develop in a vacuum. The Arab perpetrators believe that they will succeed in driving Jews away from Acre. Right now, Jews do not feel safe in their homes. Jewish fear only encourages Arab extremism and irredentism. Each side knows that it is only a matter of time until the powder keg explodes again.
Despite the blatant nationalist and anti-Jewish nature of the violence, there is in an attempt in some quarters to sweep Arab extremism under the rug. Many people, especially on the Israeli left, refuse to look Arab separatism in the eyes. They offer excuses, such as unequal allocation of resources, discrimination[sic] and neglect. According to this narrative, the May riots were a civil protest, even if they may have gotten out of hand.
This narrative is very convenient as it alleviates the need to acknowledge that many elements of Arab society are fundamentally opposed to Jewish presence and statehood. It also ignores the fact that the mayor of Acre has prioritized the Arab school system, investing more in Arab education than in the Jewish system, in order to raise the economic and social well-being of Acre's residents.
The truth is that Acre is a welcoming and overall good place for its Arab residents. They enjoy flourishing community life, cultural and educational activities, as well as booming commerce and business opportunities. However, radical ideologies in the Arab sector are straining and challenging any semblance of common life. We must openly recognize that there are radical Islamic and Arab nationalist elements that do not accept the existence of a Jewish state.This situation simply cannot continue. In recent months, I have been reporting on the antisemitic events happening regularly on the streets of Acre. The municipality and the state must set down a firm hand and protect their citizens. Israel governed by the rule of law, which applies equally to all citizens. Unless Israel is willing to reassert its sovereignty and crack down on Arab lawlessness, it is only a matter of time until May 2021’s violence repeats itself. The writing is on the wall. This time around, Israel cannot feign surprise.
Roei Shusha, Yitzhak Abuhatzira, 'The association behind the attempts to ferment in Operation Guardian of the Walls,' Ch 20, 21 Kislev 5782 (25/11/2021).
Two days before the official start of Operation Guardian of the Walls, when clashes broke out on the Temple Mount and Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem over the settlement of Jewish families in the neighborhood, the Al-Aqsa Association, affiliated with the Southern Islamic Movement, organized buses to transport Muslim worshipers from the north to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. I will take action against the settlers, "according to the association.
A few weeks ago, the organization 'Ad Kan' ['Until Here'] revealed the connection of the RA'AM party [United Arab List] to the "Aid 48" organization, which flows tens of millions of shekels a year to the families of terrorists in Judea and Samaria, the Gaza Strip, Syria and more. Today, another organization is being revealed in the organization, which is run by senior members of the Islamic Movement and is also affiliated with the RA'AM party [United Arab List], according to the organization.
As you may recall, in May, a few days before the opening of Operation Guardian of the Walls and in the midst of riots and violence throughout the country, buses carried Muslims from the northern area to the Temple Mount. The Israel Police realized that this move could stir up the winds in Jerusalem, and decided to place roadblocks on Road 1 to Jerusalem to stop the movement of Muslims to the Temple Mount. In response, the Muslims got off the buses, blocked the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv road for several hours and began walking to the Temple Mount.
Now, it is revealed in the organization 'Ad Kan' ["Up to Here"] that it is the Al Aqsa organization that is responsible for the arrival of the buses in Jerusalem "to protect Al Aqsa from the settlers," according to the association. This is not the first time that Al-Aqsa (org.) has been caught in a dangerous activity for national security. From 2007 to 2015, the organization received about NIS 12.5 million from funds abroad, which fund Hamas. In 2015, the Ministry of Defense confiscated all funds in the association's bank account as well as the association's property, due to receiving funds from Hamas funds outlawed in Israel. This revelation about Al-Aqsa is a direct continuation of the activities of the organization 'Ad Kan' ["Up to Here"] together with the "Voters for Life" forum of the bereaved families who in recent weeks exposed the activities of senior RA'AM members with the Hamas organization.Gilad Ach, the director general of the organization 'Ad Kan' ["Up to Here"], responded that "we must not endanger the future of the country by transferring huge budgets to terrorist elements through the back door of the Islamic movement. "We are immediately setting up a professional investigation team that will monitor the money that goes to the RA'AM and the Islamic movement from the taxes of all of us and call on the public to give a shoulder. Only in this way can we save the State of Israel."

2014: Shakir defended Steven Salaita, a University of Illinois professor who was fired over his countless antisemitic tweets...
Shakir made an effort to make the Jewish man on the left below appear "white" and the Palestinian woman on the right below appear "brown", masterfully hiding the fact that Israel's Jewish population is comprised of majority Mezrahi/Sephardic Jews (brown) vs. Ashkenazi (white-passing) Jews.Shakir also took to Twitter to post about the current riots in Jerusalem. Rather than being honest and exposing the Arab youth gangs terrorizing the city's Jewish population, Shakir once again vilified the Jews and attempted to bring in irrelevant American social justice issues - this time police brutality - into the picture. He was instantly called out by us for deceivingly posting a photo from the 2015 riots. Despite being exposed for blatantly lying, he has yet to remove the tweet.
Lynch at Migdal gas station HakolHayehudi, 27 Shevet 5781 - 09/02/2021.

A “Life” magazine photojournalist rekindles the 1948 Arab destruction of the city’s Jewish Quarter, along with the eviction of its residents.
I recently stumbled upon a photography book shot by the acclaimed Life magazine wartime photographer John Phillips. The large, innocuous-looking book was simply titled, A Will to Survive. After flipping through the pages, I realized I entered a time capsule that memorializes the Arab destruction of Jerusalem’s ancient Jewish Quarter in 1948.Not only is it a dramatic firsthand account of the fall of the Jewish Quarter in 1948, but it documents the Arab Legion’s scorched-earth tactics that razed and burned to the ground every structure there, including all its synagogues and yeshivahs. The Arabs expelled all of the city’s residents, mainly defenseless, old Orthodox Jews. They were given about an hour to vacate homes that most extended families had lived in for centuries.

Muna El Kurd, the Sheikh Jarrah activist who’s made international headlines with her brother, had at least five posts removed within the span of two weeks, according to updates received from Facebook. One of El Kurd’s removed posts featured a picture of Hitler, and at least four of her posts featured the glorification of Dalal Mughrabi, a Palestinian terrorist responsible for the death of 38 Israelis, including 13 children, in the Coastal Road massacre.

... The piece mainly focuses on Mohammed el-Kurd, a writer who has denounced Jewish Israelis who are seeking to reclaim ownership of properties in the eastern part of Jerusalem that were confiscated from them or their families between 1948 and 1967 when Jordan occupied the West Bank, including the holy city.
El-Kurd and his sister Muna live in one of these properties in the neighborhood of Shimon Hatzaddik/Sheikh Jarrah, and both were recently arrested for participating in violent protests essentially calling for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the area. That, in and of itself, is revealing — and, indeed, el-Kurd is seemingly an antisemite who in reality works to preclude the possibility of enhanced coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians...
Furthermore, while El-Kurd’s claim to fame is that he “reports” on happenings in Jerusalem, he often simply disseminates lies. On May 10, for instance, El-Kurd posted a video to Twitter that he claimed proved Israelis were “readying themselves” to “invade” the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
But the clip actually showed Jews praying at the Western Wall.El-Kurd also spread a fake story about a stabbing attack by “settlers.”
How the UN Stole Jewish Homes in Occupied Jerusalem and Set Off the Latest Conflict D Greenfield, May 23, 2021.
When AOC, Warren, Sanders, Tlaib, Omar, the UN, and the Biden administration treat the occupiers of Sheikh Jarrah as the rightful owners, they’re defending ethnic cleansing.
And it should be called what it is.
The fundamental issue at stake in Shimon HaTzadik and Sheikh Jarrah are crystal clear. Unlike some parts of Israel where territory changed hands in more complex ways, we know exactly what happened and why it happened. And those simple facts tell a story of the UNRWA’stole complicity in the ethnic cleansing of Jews, not just today when it serves as a storehouse for Hamas missiles and an employment agency for Hamas propagandists, but back in the 50s.
Jews were ethnically cleansed from Jerusalem after an invasion and occupation. The United Nations, through UNRWA, violated international law by taking part in population transfer by an occupying power which had expelled the indigenous population. This is the charge that the UN and the anti-Israel politicians and media have repeatedly lobbed at Israel.
And they’re the ones guilty of it.
Their Sheikh Jarrah argument is that ethnic cleansing and occupation are moral and legal when Arab Muslim armies do it. It’s that Arab Muslim squatters who moved into Jewish homes in 1956 had gained an immutable moral right to live in them by 1967 that outweighed those of the Jewish trusts which had owned them since the 19th century. There’s no better way to show the hypocritical double standards of an anti-Israel movement that cries about occupation, ethnic cleansing, and apartheid while practicing those very things.
AOC, Sanders, Warren, the UN, the Quarter, the EU, and the Biden administration are demanding that the Arab Muslim occupation of Jerusalem continue. They are ordering a free country to overturn the legal ruling of a court in case that goes back to the 1970s because they believe that Arab Muslim occupiers have a right to live in Jerusalem… and Jews don’t.
That’s what this was about in 1948. That’s still what it’s about in 2021.
The occupiers cry about the “occupation” and the ethnic cleansers cry about “ethnic cleansing” as they fight to bring back the state of apartheid that drove the Jews out of Jerusalem.

Hamas and PIJ, it seems, want to continue receiving funds and weapons from Iran, but they do not want to be seen by Arabs and Muslims as mercenaries serving Iran's interests in the Middle East.
Hamas and PIJ want the Palestinians and the rest of the Arabs and Muslims to believe that their only goal is to "liberate all of Palestine, from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea" -- a euphemism for driving the Jews out of Israel and replacing it with an Islamist state.
That is most likely why both Palestinian terror groups were quick to issue statements denying that their main goal is to defend Iran and serve its interests in the Middle East.
"Take your armies and go with them back to Iran, where you can fight your battles away from the peoples you occupy to achieve your agendas," said Sami Gemayel, head of the Lebanese Kataeb Party. He also criticized the failure of Lebanese leaders to respond to the admission that Hezbollah was created to serve Iran, and not Lebanon: "Are you ready now to face the truth?"
The Iranian commander's [Maj. Gen. Gholam Ali Rashid's] statements coincide with the Biden administration's delusional commitment to the fiction that the US will somehow convince Iran to abandon its plans to acquire nuclear weapons.While the Biden administration is talking about "diplomacy" as the best way to rein in Iran's nuclear program, the mullahs are preparing for war and advancing their scheme to annihilate Israel and, with the help of their six "armies," occupy still more Arab countries.

Three also indicted for beating Jewish man in Acre.
5 defendants are residents of the city, 2 are West Bank Palestinians who were illegally in country; prosecutors say they aimed to ‘instill fear.’
[Yigal Yehoshua, 56, died after being struck in the head with a brick while driving home in Lod.]
Murder, terrorism, and racism charges were filed Thursday against seven men accused of stoning Yigal Yehoshua to death in the central Israeli city of Lod last month, during widespread clashes between Jews Arabs in the country. Five of those indicted at the Central District Court are Arab Israelis and the other two are Palestinians who were illegally staying in Israel at the time. They are Lod residents Yusef al-Qadhayim, 21, Walid al-Qadhayim, 25, Karim Bahlul, 18, Iyad Marahla, 20, Haled Hassouna, 51, and West Bank residents Ahad Danun, 25, and Kamel Deif Alla, 21.
They were charged with murder under aggravated circumstances in a collaborated act of terror, collaborating to throw stones in an act of terror against a vehicle, and deliberately damaging a vehicle for racist motives. In addition, six were charged with collaborating to obstruct justice for trying, among other acts, to erase footage of the incident caught on security cameras.
Prosecutors said the defendants acted "out of a nationalist-ideological motives and with the aim of instilling fear and panic in the public and when there was real risk of serious injury to a person’s body." They asked that the defendants be held until the end of proceedings. The deadly attack that killed Yehoshua, a 56-year-old resident of Lod, occurred amid heavy rioting throughout the country that saw multiple cases of assault against Jewish Israelis by Arab Israelis and vice versa.
According to the indictment, on May 11 Arab youths arrived at an industrial area in the north of Lod, where they lit fires and blocked roads causing traffic to slow down. When they identified the occupants of passing cars as Jewish they hurled stones at them, prosecutors said. The defendants attacked Yehoshua’s car and one stone came through the window, hitting him in the head and causing him serious injury. Yehoshua parked his car for a few moments near the site of the attack. He then drove the rest of the way to the parking lot beneath his home, where he crashed his car into another vehicle while trying to park, apparently because of his injuries. He was rushed to the hospital and died six days later. Some of the defendants also stoned Jewish cars two days after the incident as unrest in the city continued, prosecutors said. Nearly all of the defendants confessed to the crimes during questioning by the Shin Bet security agency, and played out the sequence of events at the scene, Haaretz reported. They were identified by security cameras in the area, while a location system in Yehoshua’s car provided accurate information as to the time and place of the incident...
The families of some of the defendants claim the confessions came after hours of interrogation during which the suspects were tied to their chairs, and that they were not involved in the killing, the report said. Earlier this week police revealed that eight people had been arrested in connection with Yehoshua’s death. The suspects were arrested over the past several weeks in a joint operation by the Shin Bet and Israel Police, according to a statement from the two organizations at the time. The eighth man, Muhammad Hassouna, 33, was not charged on Thursday. Video footage distributed by the Israel Police (above) showed the attack as it unfolded, with Yehoshua’s car slowing down because of the flaming roadblocks, then being hit by rocks and bricks. He could then be seen driving away, pulling into his parking lot and hitting the parked car. Additional footage showed some of the suspects apparently attempting to erase the security camera recordings from that night. Some of Yehoshua’s organs were later used in life-saving transplants. His heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys were all donated to patients in need. One of his kidneys went to an Arab Israeli woman, Randa Aweis, a 58-year-old Christian from Jerusalem. Thursday also saw prosecutors file indictments against three suspects accused of attacking Mor Janashvili and causing him serious injuries during rioting in the northern city of Acre, also on May 12.

Lacusi Abbas was charged with attempted murder in an act of terror, terrorism by stoning a vehicle, intentionally damaging a vehicle for racist motives, and rioting. Adam Bashir was indicted for intentionally causing grievous bodily harm in an act of terror and rioting. Bilal Hiluani was charged with rioting. According to the incitement, masked youths set up roadblocks in the city and threw stones at a police water cannon vehicle that arrived to disperse them. As Janashvili drove past they hurled stones at his vehicle, hitting it and smashing the windshield. Janashvili lost control and crashed into a wall, also hitting an Arab youth who was standing there. Hiluani spurred on the mob by shouting to them that the Arab youth who was hit by the car had died, although in fact he was alive and was able to stand up with the assistance of others, prosecutors say. Janashvili exited the vehicle but before he could escape was beaten by the mob. The attackers only stopped when a local sheikh arrived and told them to stop. He was saved by an Arab nurse who was at the scene. The two later had an emotional reunion in the hospital. Janashvili’s car was set alight and destroyed.Last month saw massive riots break out in many so-called mixed Israeli cities, home to large numbers of both Arabs and Jews, during an 11-day conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

Sleep is no longer sleeping, constant fatigue all the time, nose and jaw surgeries await me. I do not wish it on anyone, everything you eat is liquid and it chokes you, it takes an hour to eat something.
They came from the municipality at first, arranged for me at the unemployment office and helped me and said I was injured and there is one from Social Security who helps me. My son continues, it's helpless, the most ordinary thing you're used to doing, I can not drink coffee! It takes eternity. From depression I would not get out of bed, and what you see is just fluids and dreaming at night about borax.
It bothers me that these are called riots
Now it bothers me that they call it riots, three days before they are seen walking around vandalizing property, synagogues, burning flags and looking for Jews to kill. All this happens in time of war when they attack Israel and they support the enemy, except for anti-Semitism there is nothing in it. It is simple to take a step against the state, all the support there is in Gaza, and what is even more serious is that three of the defendants are from Haifa, it could be that the person who demonstrated against you the night before morning sells you shawarma.
Now this is the test of the courts
I think I need an electronic showcase for them to see and be seen, otherwise you will be thrown a Molotov cocktail at home. During all these disturbances for four days there was not a single policeman, they did what they wanted, if they did not see that there was a rule here. In my opinion this is now the test of the courts, what interests me is to see the punishment they will be given, otherwise for what they worked hard to catch them. I believe that if they give a ridiculous punishment, next time there will be an organization of many Jews and Arabs will be attacked because the state does not guard them so they will take the law into their own hands.If they here would flip through that punishment, after they burned the whole avenue here and the cars and cops stood unanswered on the side, and the cops came with batons and horses, people burned cars and did not touch them. Next time they might come and knock on my door, ask if I'm an Arab and then attack me.

On Monday, March 21, the Haifa District Court sentenced Bilal Hiluani to an active prison term and also handed down a suspended sentence. Hiluani took part in the terror attack on Mor Janashvilli in Acco on May 12, 2021, during Operation Guardian of the Walls and was convicted of rioting. He admitted to the charges attributed to him in the amended indictment: that he had caused a frenzy by calling out to an incited mob that Janashvilli had run over one of the participants in the attack.
In the sentence that they handed down to Hiluani, Judges Lifshitz, Zeigler and Mandelbaum wrote, "There is no dispute regarding the severity of the acts of the defendant. The rioting in which he took part was nationalistically-racially motivated."
The court also convicted Adham Bashir, another participant in the terror attack who admitted to the charges against him, of aggravated assault in an act of terror, attempted assault in an act of terror, and rioting. A penalty hearing in his case has been scheduled for July.After the hearing, Janashvilli, who has been dependent on a wheelchair for mobility since the attack...

Ma'ayan Haimovich, who specializes in criminal law and vice chair of the National Committee for the Rights of Suspects and Investigators at the Bar Association, criticized the fact that in some cases where indictments were filed following vehicle arson, the prosecution refrained from attaching a racist motive: "Car burning is just one of the crimes committed. Racist background, we often in these incidents, we get indictments that refer to these incidents only in terms of corruption, harm and violence, but it is certainly timely to understand that these offenses, the motive behind them is purely racist, and therefore the indictments should be punctual and strict due to the same racist background. It is inconceivable that racism would take a place that would not be reflected in the indictments and in court. It is definitely time for a change."

The flipping of the nationalist, racist and anti-Semitic motives was very rapid. Too fast. Because in the story of the two attackers, members of the Garbua family, there is a lot of art and hatred of Jews... From conversations I had with Jewish residents in Jaffa who experienced harassment from their Arab neighbors, it turns out that this is not the first time that one of the brothers, Ahmad Garbua, has harassed someone who he saw as a Jew... Jews in Jaffa, mostly religious, experience violence and anti-Semitism every week that includes beatings and harassment. The Israeli police act and stop attackers in case of a complaint, but the atmosphere among the authorities (court, municipality and also the police), quite a few locals tell me, is to sweep under the rug the nationalist and racist issue. When Arab boys beat a yeshiva student just like that on a clear day, it is a "brawl," with no nationalist or racist background, just a local criminal incident. These incidents are not reported or defined, neither by state authorities nor by the media, as hate crimes as is customary in... But everyone knows and understands that the motive is a great hatred for the presence of Jews in these places. But what makes the dance of righteousness and inclusion of the left particularly embarrassing are the publications over the years of Ahmad Garbua in which he is revealed as one who is not ashamed to spread anti-Semitism, hatred of Jews and much to Palestinian art.

May 20, 2021.
...the report clarifies that there was a sophisticated and premeditated incitement campaign by Hamas to achieve the chaotic effect that has occurred in some Israeli-Arab communities.
For example, to connect itself with Sheikh Jarrah and extend its ideological influence from Gaza into east Jerusalem and among Israeli-Arabs within the Green Line, Hamas sent out a steady stream of messages that “Jerusalem will remain the conscience of the Palestinian nation.”
Next, the report quotes a Hamas spokesman, Abu Obeida, who called on Israeli-Arabs to take concrete acts of support for Hamas, knowing that the organization “had swords and shields for you.” In addition, Hamas distributed fake or manipulated news and images, including footage of a burning tree on the Temple Mount, to enrage the Israeli-Arab public.In fact, Hamas itself set the tree ablaze, but portrayed the incident as though this was part of a campaign by radical Jews to take over the Temple Mount.
"In the information war Hamas won and we lost" Achikam Himmelfarb. Channel 20. 1 In Tammuz 5781 (11/06/2021) Special interview. Apart from the battle on the ground, in the last round of fighting against Hamas, we were also exposed to the battle for information on social networks.

A photo that was tweeted in Turkey and claims the difficult situation in Jerusalem, but originated in a Lebanese. Globes' whistle team, May 18, 2021.
The operation in Gaza and the events that preceded it in Jerusalem are, it turns out, receiving a lot of interest on news sites and social networks in Turkey. It seems that no small part of this matter is reflected in staged horror pictures or those taken out of context and also in incorrect information. One notable example of this is a picture of a boy kneeling with his shirt stained with blood. It was shared for example by a tweeter named KEKE, which has about 20,000 followers, and has won thousands of likes and hundreds of shares..
The Turkish fact-check Tait checked its origin and found it unrelated to the events that took place in Jerusalem on May 10, as claimed by some of the participants in the photo. In fact, it is unrelated to any event that occurred in reality. This is a picture from a Lebanese film from 2012 called "The Kingdom of the Ports", whose fictional plot concerns the second intifada from 2002.Another photo shared on social media in Turkey shows the bodies of children lying in a row wrapped in shrouds. A Turkish tweet claimed that she was photographed in Jerusalem in recent days. Batayit checked and found that the photo was taken in August 2013 in Syria. Similar to this picture, other pictures originating from the war in Syria were distributed on the networks. In the case of another photo, in which a girl is seen crying over her dead brother, there is indeed a connection to our local confrontation, but she was taken in Jabalya in 2014, and not in 2021 in Jerusalem, as claimed.

"They consistently ignore or downplay the fact that Israel’s security measures in the West Bank and around Gaza are the response to well-documented terror activities.

While studying at Stanford University, he was president of the university's anti-Israel group, and even submitted a boycott proposal on behalf of Israel on its behalf, calling for the university to withdraw its investments from companies doing business in Israel. Even then, in 2013, members of the Student Council claimed that his remarks were full of "historical inaccuracies" and that they were an "attack on Israel in disguise." Upon graduation he began working at the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he represented a professor fired from the University of Illinois for tweets such as "Scores have turned anti-Semitism from something terrible to something respectable since 1948." His hobby at the time was, by the way, lecturing at events of "Students of Justice in Palestine," one of the most extremist anti-Israel student organizations, who argue that the Palestinian state should cover the entire territory of Israel. From the beginning of its activity until today, he presents Israel as an apartheid state that carries out ethnic cleansing. "BDS in the USA, 2001-2010.

The screen grabs below of Refaat and Shymaa were taken from a YouTube video produced when Shymaa was five years old: She asked “Dad, who created the Jews?” I could not answer her question. Unfortunately I did not have answer to it. In April 2014, Rafaat Alareer was on a book tour in the United States, promoting a book he edited, “Gaza Writes Back”.

After our May 23 article on Tala Halawa, who tweeted that “#HitlerWasRight,” the reporter was promptly fired by the BBC. In August, our work on Mariam Barghouti, who contended that “Israel has been beating Hitler at his own game since 1948,” led to her effectively being blacklisted by the outlets that had previously disseminated her anti-Israel talking points.
Today, we expose a pundit whose sheer volume of vile Judeophobic tweets towers over Halawa’s and Barghouti’s.
On May 13, at the height of the 11-day Hamas-initiated conflict against the Jewish state, The New York Times published a guest essay by Refaat Alareer titled, “My Child Asks...”The article falsely alleged that the Israel Defense Forces hit targets in the Gaza Strip with “no strategic value,” while implying that Israelis “draw straws” or “roll a dice” to decide “which block to annihilate” — essentially promoting a modern-day blood libel.

When Hamas's leaders surveyed their assets before this summer's round of fighting, they knew that among those assets was the international press. The AP staff in Gaza City would witness a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering reporters and other civilians nearby—and the AP wouldn't report it, not even in AP articles about Israeli claims that Hamas was launching rockets from residential areas. (This happened.) Hamas fighters would burst into the AP's Gaza bureau and threaten the staff—and the AP wouldn't report it. (This also happened.) Cameramen waiting outside Shifa Hospital in Gaza City would film the arrival of civilian casualties and then, at a signal from an official, turn off their cameras when wounded and dead fighters came in, helping Hamas maintain the illusion that only civilians were dying. (This too happened; the information comes from multiple sources with firsthand knowledge of these incidents.)[Paul] Colford, the AP spokesman, confirmed that armed militants entered the AP's Gaza office in the early days of the war to complain about a photo showing the location of a rocket launch, though he said that Hamas claimed that the men "did not represent the group." The AP "does not report many interactions with militias, armies, thugs or governments," he wrote. "These incidents are part of the challenge of getting out the news—and not themselves news."
Friedman also explained that Hamas knows "international coverage from the territory could be molded to its needs" and that reporters can "be intimidated when necessary and that they would not report the intimidation." What did Israel say? A source close to Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi told the Jerusalem Post  that Israeli officials provided the U.S. government with evidence to corroborate their claim that Hamas military assets operated from of the building. "We showed them the smoking gun proving Hamas worked out of that building," the source said. "I understand they found the explanation satisfactory." In fact, officials in multiple Israeli government agencies confirmed the call that took place between President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday was to, in part, show American officials the intelligence confirming Hamas' presence inside the building...

Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, said that the building was long known as an operational center for the Islamic fundamentalist group. "I'm sure Hamas offices were in that building [and] that they purposely co-locate operations with civilians" Vietor wrote on Twitter. He added that "I talked to people who worked in the building." Lilac Sigan, 'It is the liberal agenda of the media that gives Hamas legitimacy for its actions.' Maariv, 30/08/2015 https://www.maariv.co.il/journalists/Article-495575 .The claim that the conflict should be reported only in terms of the injustices caused to the Palestinians by Israel and the unilateral accusations cause the population of Israel to go to the right and rule out the possibility of an agreement
[...] If Hamas has a tremendous achievement, it is the unconscious mobilization of some of the media to help it. Hamas' deeds simply do not report. It is reminiscent of cases of domestic violence, when all the neighbors know what is going on but prefer to close their eyes, even though in this case the motives are completely different. This is the result of an agenda that is supposed to help the Palestinians. A similar thing is happening now as well. The level of reporting in the international media on trampling, stabbing, stones and Molotov cocktails is marginal, if at all. In the local media, the events are reported, but with the complacency of a bloody routine. We hardly hear about the incitement or interests behind this routine. During wars we tend to be amazed: how is it that the foreign media does not report on Hamas launchers that are in hospitals and schools? How can there not be talk of using civilians as human shields? The Channel 1 film about the BDS.. showed some Gaza residents agreeing to tell about the rule of animalistic government, the horrific violence and fear of death that keeps all Gazans silent.But because of the "liberal agenda" in many media, not many people in the world know about it. This goes beyond the agenda, according to which the conflict should be reported only in terms of the injustices caused to the Palestinians by Israel. The rest are allowed to do to the Palestinians as they please, but that is simply not part of the story that is reported to the world.

Human rights researchers say Hamas strictly controls information about civilian deaths in Gaza to hide its losses and failures...Which is to say, the numbers provided by the Hamas’s health ministry are far from “facts,” and we don’t actually know how many civilians were inadvertently killed in Israeli airstrikes. The group, moreover, has made clear its intent to deceive. During a round of fighting in 2014, Hamas issued guidelines to Palestinians in Gaza to call anyone killed a “civilian,” regardless of whether they were actually a fighter..

A media watch group exposed the truth behind the deaths. "In a quick check of the first 24 names, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America's (CAMERA) Israel office found that one through three were Hamas members.
