How to face “incitement” allegation in Israel

Beyond parody (but such is the reality in modern Israel). Via The Only Democracy in the Middle East:

Sara Benninga, whose speech I reposted here on the blog, was interrogated by the police after speaking at the JStreet conference I attended. She provided one of the voices for a new direction for Jewish and Israeli activists working alongside Palestinians for justice. For this she was rewarded with an interrogation.

From Didi Remez’s facebook page:

Sara was interrogated for “incitement” because she made a call for solidarity with the #Jan25 protesters at Tahrir sq. She was also questioned on “subversion” because she dared chant “settlers, thieves”. I kid you not. I’ll update if there are indictment.
