Abbas Censors Truth


Israel and Palestinian Authority both censor truth.

by Stephen Lendman

Israel notoriously censors truth. Military censorship bans or sanitizes material potentially harming Israel's security. Media/government agreements comply.

Some make sense like banning reports beneficial to adversaries. Others don't by suppressing information people have a right to know. For example, whatever affects their welfare and officials' crimes need revealing so everyone knows. 

Various Supreme Court decisions also limit content suppression to "tangible (or) near certain" instances of public endangerment. Of course, interpretations are crucial. 

Authorities are increasingly hardline to get their way. In the process, fundamental rights are violated perhaps on the way to being entirely destroyed.

Israel prohibits Palestinian protests. Free expression is compromised. Classroom materials are rewritten. Only praise for Israel is allowed. Nakba denial persists. Academia is affected. Historical revisionism legitimizes crimes too important to whitewash.
