Israel’s Creeping Criminalization of Democratic RightsRichard Silverstein - Tikun Olam - Kobi told me that twelve of so other activists have been similarly targeted, so this is a growing phenomenon of intimidating Israeli Jewish activists.

It says he considers `anti-Semitism` to include comments `targeting specifically the State of Israel which was conceived as a Jewish state`" 24/12/2012

First step towards overturning `Boycott Law`?Gush Shalom - During the preliminary hearing, the state wanted the appeal to be rejected out of hand, asserting that is was `not ripe`. The Court did the opposite – they accepted our request, not only to deal with the appeal but also move the hearing to a wider panel of judges, thus confirming that fundamental constitutional issues are involved. It is the democratic right of peace-seeking Israeli citizens to boycott settlements established in Occupied Territory in violation of International Law, settlements which deny Palestinians the possibility of an independent state, and thus deny the citizens of Israel the chance of living in peace. Boycott is a perfectly democratic civic action. The right to boycott settlement products displayed on the shelves at the local supermarket is no less than the right of consumers to boycott exorbitantly priced products, the right of the observant to boycott non-kosher food and the right of animal lovers to boycott meat and fur.11/12/2012
