I. Against the Palestinian People


Itamar Ben Gvir, Minister of National Security, Member of Knesset and Chairman of the Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) party (Twitter, 5 April 2023)[1]

“It is a shame that this man[2] is a member of the Knesset. Great job of the Israeli police officers for their brave and dedicated work.”[3]

Itamar Ben Gvir  (Twitter, 1 April 2023)

“I support the Israeli police officers who acted in the Temple Mount[4] and prevented a big disaster[5]. The people of Israel are blessed with brave police officers who know when to engage and execute quick action to thwart terrorists[6]. Great work from the police!”

Tzvi Yedidia Sukkot, Member of Knesset for the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 3 April 2023) [7]

“A village of terrorism.[8]

Hanoch Dov Milwidsky, Member of Knesset for the Likud party (Twitter, 7 April 2023)

“Arab terrorism[9] was always characterized by vileness, cruelty, and cowardness.
Damn bastards, we will reach them all.”

Itamar Ben Gvir (Twitter, 9 April 2023)

“The district court in Jerusalem extended the arrest of Mohammad Basili, the Hamas supporter, who published 7 inciting posts on social media networks. A significant part of the war against terrorism happens on the networks. Social networks are central generators of terrorism and incitement. That is why I directed the police to monitor and stop as many inciters as possible online.”

Limor Sonn Har Melech, Member of Knesset for the Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) party (Twitter, 9 April 2023)

“I call upon the security system and the prime minister to launch a military operation tonight to clean Judea and Samaria[10] from weapons and terrorism because the responsibility is solely ours. Only a strong and painful iron hand against the enemy! (…)”

Boaz Bismuth, Member of Knesset for the Likud party (Twitter, 10 April 2023)

“At these moments, I am marching on the trails of Samaria to strengthen the settlers of the mountain, including the pioneers of Evyatar[11].

Our Zionist response to terrorism: strengthening the hold on the homeland. I follow the first Hebrew command of the founder of our nation: “Go, go… To the land that I will show you (…)”

Zeev Elkin, Member of Knesset for the National Unity party (Twitter, 23 April 2023)

“What a lame excuse for another delay in the never-ending saga. In 2018, Netanyahu already used the excuse of consensual eviction when he asked to delay it and promised it will happen within a few weeks. It’s been almost 5 years.

Khan al-Ahmar[12] must be evacuated! I said it during Netanyahu’s governments and the government of Bennet and Lapid.Itamar, Bezalel, are you awake?”

Itamar Ben Gvir (Twitter, 11 April 2023)[13]

“The war against terrorism starts at its roots. From social media networks and the instigators who are inciting on these networks. The networks are a flea’s nest of incitement and fake news against Israel. They are used by terrorist organizations to incite and brainwash people. And like we, unfortunately, learned, the line between incitement and statements against Israel and active terrorism acts is very thin.”

Ad Kan[14] (Twitter, 2 April 2023)

“The investigation of Ad Kan, on channel 14 tonight, exposes the whole truth about (Hamoked for the Defense of the Individual[15]), a radical anti-Israeli organization (disguised as an Israeli organization), which protects terrorists and gives them and their families free legal counsel. In light of the shocking revelation, we call for the “HaMoked” to be closed.”

Ariel Kallner, Member of Knesset for the Likud party (Facebook, 23 April 2023)[16]

“The crazy reality where an Israeli organization[17] assists vile terrorists and their families[18], its leaders show understanding to the murder of Jewish citizens, and all the funding of foreign states cannot continue.

Following a report by Ad Kan on channel 14, I will assemble the Lobby for the fight against de-legitimization, headed by me, immediately after the break next week, to deal with the phenomenon (…).”
