Israel's Megaphone of Hate

One word beloved of Zionist propagandists is 'incitement', as in 'Palestinian anti-Semitic incitement'. But look who's really doing the incitement:

"Every 46 seconds an Israeli Jew publishes a racist or inciting comment against Arabs on Facebook and other social networks, a new study finds. According to the Arab Center for the Advancement of Social Media (7amleh), which published its Index for Racism & Incitement on Social Media last week, 60,000 active Israeli social media users published at least one racist post against Arabs in 2016. According to the study there were over 675,000 such posts in the previous year, published at a rate of one post every 46 seconds - a dangerous increase from 2015, when 280,000 racist and inciting posts were published.

"7amleh's study also focused on the correlation between remarks made by high-level government officials and the amount of inciting posts. One can see a clear increase in the number of racist posts against Arabs following every inciting remark by a member of the government. The sharpest spikes in racist posts came following remarks by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against Arab citizens, following the fires that raged across Israel and the West Bank in November 2016, which leaders blamed on nationalistically-motivated arson... Another sharp increase was felt throughout the trial of Elor Azaria, an Israeli soldier who was found guilty of killing an incapacitated Palestinian in Hebron early last year. [...]

"7amleh's report was a result of repeated accusations by Israeli politicians that Palestinians take part in incitement against Israel Jews on social media. These accusations led to the arrests of Palestinian activists, often when they had committed no such crime. According to 7amleh, Israel is putting pressure on companies such as Facebook and Google to reveal data on its users so as to make it easier to track and arrest them. According to human rights organizations, over 200 criminal cases have been opened against Palestinian activists who have been accused of incitement on the internet...
