On International Human Rights Day, Adalah explores:

How the Israeli Knesset "protects" human rights
Dear Friends,

Who said the Israeli Knesset doesn't care about human rights? Watch this video to learn how Israeli parliamentarians "protect" the human rights of Palestinians in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

As we mark the 70th annual International Human Rights Day on 10 December, Israel’s parliament continues to violate the rights of Palestinians in Israel and in the OPT.
In 2017, the Knesset promoted discriminatory and anti-democratic legislation threatening land rights, freedom of expression rights, and civil and political rights. And we’ve witnessed a further erosion of the rule of law: The Knesset legislated de facto annexation of settlements in the OPT over which it has no jurisdiction; the Israel Prison Service barred lawyers from visiting prisoners on hunger-strike breaching their right to legal counsel; and police illegally held the bodies of Palestinians killed by Israeli security forces from their families.

As we approach 2018, Adalah needs your support to challenge the most pressing Israeli violations of Palestinian rights:
  • Revocation of citizenship as a punitive measure
  • Forced displacement
  • Settlements and proposed "annexation laws"
  • Lack of accountability for killings by Israeli security forces
  • Cuts to social benefits and healthcare services
Israel continues to impose restrictions on human rights defenders fighting to end the occupation and for full equality and a state for all of its citizens. Your contribution during this holiday season is more important than ever.
