#DefendDemocracy

Six members of the far-right party Religious Zionism were elected to the Israeli Knesset. They openly and blatantly hold racist, sexist, homophobic and supremacist views. 

 

They encourage annexation, anti-LGBT+ and sexist legislation, and the expulsion of Palestinian and Israeli Arabs who won't declare loyalty to "Greater Israel". 

 

The inclusion of these parties is a stain on Israel's democracy. It shocks and outrages those who uphold Jewish values of tolerance, democracy and human rights. 

 

Join us to #DefendDemcoracy by raising awareness about this threat to Israel's democracy. 

 

Post on social media using the hashtag #DefendDemocracy and send people to this website for them to learn more.
