Committee to sue Netanyahu for racial incitement
A Palestinian representative body announced on Saturday it is examining ways to prosecute Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for racial incitement.
The High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of the Green Line, one of the top representative organizations in Palestine, accused Netanyahu of hate speech against Palestinian citizens of 1948 Occupied Palestine after a series of fires broke out across the area.
The committee condemned the Prime Minister’s statements, in addition to the role played by some of his ministers and the Israeli mass media.
The organization dubbed Netanyahu’s language a gateway to the escalation of incitement against the Palestinian people.
The committee also issued a statement criticizing the Israeli government for its racist law on religious broadcasts, in reference to an Israeli ban on Adhan (the Muslim call to prayer).
The move came after Netanyahu claimed that Palestinians had been deliberately starting the fires that swept across many parts of the Green Line.
