Thou Shalt Not Incite
[Ed. note – The favorite word of Israeli officials these days seems to be “incitement.” In the article below you will read about Palestinian women who have been thrown in Israeli jails for posting on Facebook–a total of 28 such women have been so arrested since last October, and one of the favored charges against them seems to be “incitement.” This at any rate is what 22-year-old Majd Atwan was convicted of.
Atwan, from the West Bank village of Al-Khader, near Bethlehem, was sentenced to 45 days in jail and fined 3,000 shekels (approximately $794)–all for a post on Facebook.
