It follows their Facebook pages, uses fake profiles to 'befriend' them and presents screenshots of posts in court – this is how Israel Police is adding social activists to its virtual surveillance list. 'They know what I write and do,' Ethiopian protest leader says.09:46 06.02.16 | 1 comments
Ari Shavit: I can remember you trying time after time to whitewash Netanyahu, trying to argue (like David Landau,this paper's erstwhile editor, who amazingly calls Lieberman a newborn pragmatist) that behind the slogans was a moderate politician. You, like the vast majority of Israel's elite, might have seen the rot eating into Israel years ago - from the l970s, in fact. But you preferred not to do so. Now it is probably too late. But still worth the effort. Every single sane Israeli (and this includes its Arab citizens too) should turn up at the polls and vote for Labor, Hatnua, Meretz or Hadash. Those parties should combine and fight Netanyahu and his gang for all they are worth. A last chance..
