Premeditated Israeli Violence
Israel is a rogue police state.
by Stephen Lendman
Merriam-Webster calls a police state "a political unit characterized by repressive governmental control of political, economic, and social life usually by an arbitrary exercise of power by police and especially secret police in place of regular operation of administrative and judicial organs of the government according to publicly known legal procedures."
In other words, it's governance by state terror over a controlled population. Palestinians understand well. They've experienced the worst kind of militarized persecution and repression for decades.
State-sponsored violence affects them multiple times daily. They're isolated on their own without rights. They're terrorized for not being Jews. World leaders able to help spurn them.
In the week ending December 13 alone, Israel forces killed three Palestinians. Three others were wounded. West Bank communities were violently raided 10 times daily on average pre-dawn.
Forty-five innocent Palestinians were arrested. Five boys and one girl were violently detained. Three human rights organizations were attacked. Their belongings were confiscated. Their offices were ransacked and trashed.
The Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council (PHROC) condemned what happened.
