Israeli Police Raid Hospital 50th Anniversary Celebration because it’s too Palestinian

A hospital anniversary celebration attended by “dozens of people,” sponsored by the Palestinian Authority, in occupied East Jerusalem was intolerable for Israel. The reason: it would include “Palestinian sovereign symbols such as: playing the Palestinian national anthem, political speeches on behalf of the PA and participation of Palestinian officials.”

The Israeli education minister called it a “serious mishap.” This isn’t the first such incident.

Inside the Clandestine World of Israel’s ‘BDS-busting’ Ministry

Leaders of Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry leaders see themselves as the heads of a commando unit, gathering and disseminating information about “supporters of the delegitimization of Israel” – and they prefer most of their actions be kept secret. Its Minister, however, gave a little away at one point, tweeting: “Had a great meeting with CNN Pres. Jeff Zucker on the role of CNN in the Mid.East.
