Don’t Regulate and Censor the Free Press

Target: Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel

Goal: Don’t allow the government to censor and regulate media broadcasting.

Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu wants to create a state regulatory commission that would mandate news broadcasting. These regulations could potentially lead to censorship and a complete breakdown of the free press.

Netanyahu broached the idea of a regulatory board in response to a new public broadcasting corporation, the Israel Broadcasting Corporation. Netanyahu worries that there aren’t enough regulations against this new media outlet.

We live in a time in which leaders will call media outlets “fake news” with very little regard for the very disastrous consequences of such words. Citizens depend on a free press, separate from the government, to get their news. It is the only check against an authoritarian regime. Sign the petition and ask that Prime Minister Netanyahu not work towards legislation that would regulate the press.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu,

You recently voiced interest in passing legislation that would give the government of Israel power over news organizations. This is a serious breach of the freedom of the press. These regulations and an advisory board watching over the media will make it easier for facts to be censored and twisted to fit certain agendas.

A free press is the foundation of all modern nations. It keeps citizens well informed and prevents an authoritarian government from rising to power. I ask that you not move forward with plans for a regulatory board watching over the media.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Things are getting a little too hot for Netanyahu, who is being investigated for BRIBERY and FRAUD, and who knows that the world is WAKING UP to the truth about Israel’s brutal Occupation of Palestine and it’s ongoing ETHNIC CLEANSING of the Palestinians.
    So it’s no great wonder that he wants to gain complete control of all the news media.
    But hopefully it’s too late for him. The cat is out of the bag, and Israel’s atrocities are already being broadcast all over the world. Hopefully this will result in justice and freedom for the severely oppressed Palestinians.

  2. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    why genocide against the jews and the people of color?

    • Genocide often occurs because of a belief that someone’s (the perpetrator’s) race and/or religion and/or culture is superior to another race and/or religion and/or culture.
      Right now the Israeli Jews believe – and are taught in their schools – that their race is superior to the Arabs – which includes Palestinians – and they are actively involved in the ethnic cleansing of these people. Jewish Supremacy is written about in their Torah and their Talmud scriptures, which anyone can read about online.
