B'Tselem's response to MoD Gantz's declaration of Palestinian human rights organizations as terrorist organizations

Israel’s “change” government's designation, earlier today, of Palestinian human rights organizations as “terror organizations” is not merely declarative. It is an act characteristic of totalitarian regimes, with the clear purpose of shutting down these organizations. But war is not peace, ignorance is not strength – and the current Israeli government is not one of change, but rather of a continuation of the violent apartheid regime, in place for many years between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. B’Tselem stands in solidarity with our Palestinian colleagues, is proud of our joint work over the years – and is steadfast to continue so.
