Israel takes steps to Criminalize Criticisms of Israeli Military

“The only way to stop us is to end the occupation,” said the group being targeted, Breaking the Silence.

The Israeli Knesset approved the first reading of a bill that would prohibit organizations from being critical of the Israeli Army Monday.

The bill, which passed by 35-23 votes, was proposed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Bennett is the chairman of the right-wing Jewish Home party, a party seeking to criminalize any criticisms of the Israeli occupation.
