Will ‘Terrorism’ be Redefined to Placate Israeli Leftists?

Most people on the political right in Israel, including most pro-settler organizations and parties, regard the Price Tag radicals as an embarrassment.

None of the people promoting and cheering on the initiative to proclaim Price Tag a terrorist organization has endorsed the idea of defining Anarchists Against the Wall as a terrorist group. Why not?

The answer of course is that the “anarchists” are promoting the agenda of the far left. On the other hand, the Price Tag people may be misguided delinquents in need of a timeout in their rooms but they are strongly pro-Israel.

Similarly, Jewish radical leftist organizations have never been proclaimed terrorist organizations, even though many of the smaller ones endorse lawbreaking, treason, mutiny by soldiers, and world boycotts against Israel.

Why are they not being criminalized, prosecuted, and defined as terrorist groups?

In any event, Mr. Netanyahu after the election sought to soften his statement on Palestinian statehood and apologized for what he conceded were remarks that “offended some Israeli citizens and offended members of the Israeli Arab community.”
