State Of Human Rights In Israel

E-mail Print PDF

Anti-democratic legislation's been passed. More's coming. Individual liberties are threatened, including those of minorities. Affected groups include those named above and anyone criticizing government policies, including Jews.

Annually, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) publishes its "State of Human Rights - Situation." For 2011, it documents "grave violations of rights in Israel's prisons and describes a rising trend of restrictions of liberty" overall, including:


  • freedom of expression;
  • freedom of political activity; and
  • freedom of thought and opinion.
It also covers last summer's mass social rights protests, infringing protesters' freedom of expression, and few results so far achieved.
