Report highlights Israel's restriction on freedom of speech

December 4, 2011 09:29

A report published on Sunday by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel highlights restrictions on human rights in Israel. 

Covering a wide range of topics, the "Snapshot" report draws attention to police efforts to limit freedom of expression among settlers, Palestinians, and the social justice protesters who took to the streets last summer. It mentions the officers' illegal practice of dispersing crowds while masked and without identification tags.

The document also censures new "anti-democratic legislation that threatens to limit the freedoms of the individual, in order to disrupt the activities of human rights organizations and threaten anyone giving criticism with litigation."
