Israeli Incitement Reports

I. Against the Palestinian People 

 

Benny Gantz – Minister of Security (Facebook, 7 August 2022)[1]

“Whoever seeks to harm citizens of Israel – we will harm them.
Yesterday, Khaled Mansour, commander of the southern division of the Islamic Jihad in Gaza, was eliminated during a joint operation between the IDF[2] and Shin Bet.We will continue to act until we restore quiet and remove all threats against the children in the area surrounding Gaza. I compliment the IDF and the Shin Bet for the huge efforts invested in maintaining Israel’s security.”

Amir Ohana – Member of the Knesset for the Likud (Facebook, 4 August 2022)

“One of the important laws I passed in the Knesset allows the annulment of residency of those involved in terrorism[3], contrary to the High Court of Justice’s decision that prevents this option. This is an important law, but the work is not done and the battle is still long.”

May Golan – Member of the Knesset for the Likud party (Facebook, 05 August 2022)

“During the military operation, we are all an iron fist against Muslim terrorism![4]
United for the IDF, its warriors – the entire security apparatus!
Our prayers for peace to all citizens of Israel, and our hearts are with the beloved residents of the Gaza Envelope in these complex hours (…)”

Itamar Ben Gvir – Member of the Knesset for the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 07 August 2022)

“This morning, I arrived on the Temple Mount[5], the holiest place for the Jewish people, along with my young son, David, to march and as a reminder that we have sovereignty over Temple Mount. We will never surrender, not to rockets, not to terrorists’ threats, and not to those from within us that attack[6]. The People of Israel live.”

Ayelet Shaked – Minister of Interior Affairs (Twitter, 14 August 2022)

“(…)We will ensure that any government that is established, they[7] cannot promote their joint vision with Gantz[8] to establish a Palestinian state. (…)”

Lach Jerusalem Settlers’ Organization[9] (Facebook, 25 August 2022)[10]

Maor Tzemach, Chairman of Lach Jerusalem, and Matan Peleg, the chairman of Im Tirtzu[11], in a joint statement: “It does not make sense for a school that is a greenhouse for terrorists to be located a few dozen meters from the Western Wall under Israeli sovereignty. The videos speak for themselves: a reenactment of Arafat’s, the murderer, funeral. Quoting the Quran to praise suicide boomers and more. We demand that the Israeli police and the prosecution immediately arrest any educational staff member who is responsible for the insane incitement happening in Al-Wifaq school. Minister of Education, Yifat Shasha-Biton, must immediately deal with the extreme nationalist incitement, which we have uncovered these past few months in Arab schools.”

Ayelet Shaked – Minister of Interior (Twitter, 26 August 2022)[12]

“We established a Jewish state to be protected from lynches.
The lynchers[13] are terrorists, and should be treated accordingly.
The flag of Israel will be safely waved anywhere in our country.”

II. And Against the Indigenous Palestinian Citizens of Israel

 

Itamar Ben Gvir – Member of the Knesset for the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 20 August 2022)[14]

“It seems that the heads of the Joint List met with the PA’s head of intelligence. You don’t need intelligence to know they are terrorists and terrorism supports; their place is in the Syrian parliament.”

Bezalel Smotrich – Member of the Knesset for the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 20 August 2022)

“They are terrorism supporters; they visit terrorists[15], conspire against the Israeli democracy, and receive salaries from each one of us.

There is no place for Odeh, Tibi, and Abu Shehadeh in the Israeli Knesset (…)”

Danny Danon – Chairman of the World Likud (Facebook, 06 August)

“During the weekend, we witnessed protests from violent extremist factors that encourage terrorism[16].We must make it clear to anyone who thinks about starting violent riots and taking advantage of the situation to ignite the field – any such attempt will be answered with an iron fist. Riot starters in mixed cities must be answered with a determined and appropriate reaction from the security forces[17].”
