Israeli Incitement Reports
April 19, 2022
I. Against the Palestinian People
Yoaz Hendel - Minister of Communications (Twitter, 27 March 2022)
"The bloodshed during Ramadan results from the desire to kill Jews. A desire that has existed throughout history and was never severed.
Not settlers' violence and no other excuses. The only response is an iron wall. Not inner fights and politics (…)."
Shlomo Karhi - Member of the Knesset of the Likud party (Twitter, 27 March 2022)
"The left terminology – "The West Bank", that the con man intentionally used is not as aggravating as the audacity and lie by Blinken on "settlers' violence" in Ramadan. Someone needs to explain to him, during Muslim holidays, only Jews are killed, and that using "settlers' violence" is part of the same incitement that leads to this (…)."
Itamar Ben Gvir – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 08 March 2022)
"The message that Minister of Defense Gantz is sending to the Palestinians is that of a total surrender: you implement terrorism attacks, we will give you gifts (…), and instead of demolishing the terrorists' houses and answer terrorism with a strong hand, they are embraced and given gifts. . This is a lax and weak government that surrenders to terrorism. We will do everything to bring it down quickly.
Orit Strock – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 24 March 2022)
"It is time to pass a bill to annul the citizenship and residency of terrorists. It's a good law; it must pass."
"A weak and dangerous government that submits to terrorists and their threats to achieve artificial quiet, instead of increasing the imprisonment conditions, this government improves it and encourages terrorism. They will enjoy good food, social life and welfare. In contrast, Amiram Ben Oliel will continue to sit in cruel and inhuman conditions(…)."
II. Against the Indigenous Palestinian Citizens of Israel
Ofir Sofer - Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 10 March 2022)
Itamar Ben Gvir – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 11 March 2022)
Itamar Ben Gvir – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 09 March 2022)
"What other state would allow the Chief of police to say to the thieves: continue stealing for another month, and we won't do anything?
That state is Israel, and the Chief of Police is Kobi Shabtai. After he failed in the Guardian of the Walls operation, and crimes rising daily, can someone explain to me why he is still in the position? Shabtai – Go Home!"
Bezalel Smotrich – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 10 March 2022)
Orit Strock - Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 15 March 2022)
"Under the title "judge us by our actions", 8 months ago, Ayelet Shaked promised that the Shabak would investigate cases of Israeli Arabs so that the events of 2021 do not repeat in 2022. On the eve of Ramadan 2022, it is clear that this is not really happening. In most serious violence cases, the Shabak is not involved, and the offenders were neither located nor prosecuted."
"We continued to warn against a government that leans on terrorism parties, who love violence and chaos. This is how a government that doesn't know how to decide that the Negev, and life in the Negev, and settling in the Negev is of highest priority(…)."
Nir Orbach – Member of the Knesset of the Yemina party (Twitter, 27 March 2022)
"I congratulate the government and the Ministers Shaked and Elkin on the important decision on establishing towns in the Negev. As part of restoring sovereignty – settling the Negev is a basic and important step.
"The small State of Israel cannot withstand a desert that takes up over half its territory for long. If the state doesn't eliminate the desert, the desert will eliminate the state" (David Ben Gurion)."
Orit Strock – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 27 March 2022)
III. Against President Abbas and the Palestinian Leadership
Simcha Rothman – Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 29 March 2022)
"Due to multiple terrorists and the fact that salaries are paid to the families based on the number of victims, the Palestinian Authority is expected to go into debt. There are a lot of new salaries to pay (…)."
Orit Strock - Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 01 March 2022)
"Correction: The Civil Administration did not evaporate. It is completely working on whitewashing illegal Palestinian construction, including in strategic places, creating Palestinian sequences with its own hands, and has turned into a cooperative of the PA's takeover plan. All of it is directed by Gantz and turning a blind eye to his partners in the coalition, who made him sign on a campaign in Area C."
Orit Strock - Member of the Knesset of the Religious Zionism party (Twitter, 16 March 2022)
"(…)The US Ambassador exposes joint work between Bennett and Gantz to whitewash terrorists' salaries. Why whitewash? The ambassador explains: to improve the image of the Palestinian Authority and strengthen its international support. You have read correctly: not only Gantz, Bennett too, who defined the PA as a shard in the butt. And Abu Mazen, a supporter of terrorism."
IV. Additional Examples
Kathrin Shitrit - Member of the Knesset of the Likud party (Facebook, 14 March 2022)
"The new Senate legislation is a massive failure for Bennett. Former PM Benjamin Netanyahu accomplished the Abraham Accords, which did not mention a Palestinian state even with a quarter of a word. And now, new legislation in the United States is injecting the poison of a Palestinian state into the world of good concepts of the Abraham agreements. Instead of normalization – a Palestinian state. God forbid.
If God forbid, legislators from the extreme left in the United States would promote the idea of a Palestinian state, without Bennett explaining to them the severity of this action, it will be written under the name of Yemina. This is a walk of a total left government, on the road to Oslo 3 (…)."
Shirly Pinto – Member of the Knesset of the Yemina party (Twitter, 24 March 2022)
"(…) Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people. Period."
"Live from Hebron, our forefathers' city: The CEO of Breaking the Silence, Avner Gvaryahu, in a fieldtour for Israel’s antagonizers from Europe in Hebron. We are there to film them."
