Israeli judges crack down on dissent

Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — The bias of the Israeli judicial system has become increasingly overt in recent months, as the calls of Israeli police for the “punishment” of Silwan’s Palestinian residents appear to be answered.

As Silwan’s people attempt to confront the spread of Israeli settlements and Municipality-enacted house demolitions in their neighborhoods, judges appear to be cracking down on dissent. Several residents have been convicted of fabricated charges in recent months, with judges heeding no thought for justice.
