'Israeli government propaganda is inciting violent threats against human rights defenders.
On the Facebook page for the 4IL website visitors left comments calling for the killing of Shawan Jabarin, director of the Palestinian human rights group Al-Haq.
These included: “When do we put a bullet in the head?”, “Why do such people still breathe?” and “Why has he not been liquidated?”
4IL is a propaganda outlet of Israel’s strategic affairs ministry.
The ministry, headed by Gilad Erdan, leads Israel’s campaign of smear and sabotage against human rights groups and the global Palestine solidarity movement.
Al-Haq calls these comments “incitement and hate speech.”
The human rights group says the spasm of death threats came after 4IL published an article accusing Jabarin, a human rights defender who has won international recognition and awards, of “terrorism.”
The Israeli government published the article smearing Al-Haq after the organization held an event celebrating its 40th anniversary attended by academics, diplomats and officials, including from the UN and European Union.
“The attack is the latest in a large-scale campaign against Palestinian and other civil society organizations working to promote and protect the rule of law and human rights standards for the Palestinian people,” according to Al-Haq.'
