Global Free Speech Is Eroding Fast:
“Israel’s Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi… is in the process of advancing regulations, authorizing the arrest of individuals and seizure of property based on the subjective judgment that their communication undermines ‘national morale’ or aids enemy propaganda.”
Meanwhile pro-Palestine and Hamas protests have been banned in France.
A woman who made a speech many believed was pro-Hamas was arrested in Britain for supporting a banned organization.
Germany banned all activities and organizations supporting Hamas.
Analyst Comment: While many will rationalize such restrictions because they relate to terrorist group Hamas, these precedents will be expanded against anyone who the relevant government does not like, most notably, its critics.
