Israeli Peace Movement under attack from violent fascists

“We suspect that the shift of the Israei public to the right and the birth of these fascist gangs is not spontaneous, but is a result of decades of incitement by the government. This incitement escalated quickly, and now Israeli Jews who criticize their government are attacked as well. This violence is also supported by the police. I can’t say right now what is going on and where we are headed to, but things aren’t pretty here.” David - Israeli activist

Activists face crackdown under Serious Organised Crime and Police Act.

Being raided, arrested, dragged through the legal system and having my property taken from me (including my photo album because it had a "hunt sabs" sticker on it and my notebook for my uni degree in criminology) just for campaigning seems over the top and has been pretty stressful. But it's not going to stop me from fighting for what I believe in and against what I disagree with. This isn't for ego, nor for fame, it's for the exploited and the vulnerable.SOCPA 7 defendant - Emma

SchNEWS in Brief...
Crap (Non) Arrest of the Week

….for standing up to cultural Marxism and sharia law.

Britain First lead singer Paul Golding isn’t afraid to throw himself into the front line – whether it’s hassling the caretaker at a mosque on a Wednesday lunch-time, asking for your money to save a dog he’s never even seen or even ..gasp….getting arrested.

 In the words of our favourite native son "In this game... in this line of business.. quite frankly, I am going to get arrested and face danger, I accept that, I accept that burden and I'm quite proud that I'm doing what I'm doing, standing up for our country, fighting militant Islam in this country."

So is Paul under lock and key in Belmarsh as the pinko Marxist British police bend the law to protect their radical Muslim friends?…err, no. In fact he didn’t even get nicked and there wasn’t even a warrant out for him.

Not that that stopped him from getting online and saying “This latest outrage at the hands of the police should inspire every true patriot to join the ranks of the Britain First movement immediately!”
