Israel Censors Palestinian Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa TV Stations For "Broadcasting Inciting Material"

Israeli Defense Force and Israeli Security Agency shut down select Palestinian media on October 18. Among the raided during the night operation were the offices of Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa TV stations.

They were deemed illegal by the Israeli government on accusations of “broadcasting inciting material”. Two people were also detained on charges of instigating terrorism.

18 Palestinian Arabs, who were suspected of terrorism, were apprehended in Judea and Samaria by the military forces the same night. They were handed to Israeli Security Agency.

These incidents follow the attempted reconciliation of Palestinian Fatah party and Hamas, a move that Israel continues to publicly criticize. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel won’t accept the appeasement where the Palestinian side is reconciling at Israel’s expense, adding that anyone who discusses a peace process must recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Israel demands the negotiations commence only in case that all weapons – including those in Hamas’ hands – must be under the control of the rule of law of the Palestinian National Authority.

This Israeli government systematically shuts down Palestinian media, with recently raiding and closing a radio station in Hebron in August and a TV station in July.

    What business this Bibi guy have in the reconciliation of two other group? What is so awful to work on resolving differences? He IS afraid, afraid that “divide” will not working anymore. It’s terrifying, so he has to shut the voices who call for peace.

    What is strange, that the world is not yet fed up and tired of him, which whenever is not lying and threatening, is lying, nagging and whining.

      Its the whining of the Professional Victims that I detest the most as it slanders all the German people.

    • I think Israel is almost at the end of the rope. For one thing, its guarantor, the US, is in fast decline. Eventually, it will have to negotiate or make war without the support of its dog.Then we will see if its much vaunted IDF is what it says it is. The 2006 war already gave us a taste of what is to come.

    Israel is playing its stupid little game right now they will be lucky if this doesn’t backfire on them. Trying to manipulate the situation by associating it with terrorism activity will be weak at best.
