Israel Police Arrest Human Rights Protestors

Israel’s security forces have no problem when West Bank settlers protest in the streets or yell hatred toward Palestinians since they represent the truth, or, at least the truth as seen by the current government. On Friday, Israel police arrested 15 left wing protestors who have been conducting weekly meetings to make clear their support of the rights of Palestinians whose homes are being seized by Jews. Police claimed the protest had not received official sanction and thus since it was illegal, they had a right to arrest those engaged in the demonstration. Civil rights activists insisted they had a right to protest in public concerning their support for Palestinians.

According to police the protestors were anarchists and leftists which is a serious issue in modern Israel. Of course, those who created the state of Israel often belonged to left wing organizations and many were socialists. I guess the founders of Israel in the modern state would wind up behind bars.
