Amendment to Israel’s Penal Code: “Up to 20 Years Prison Sentence” for Stone-Throwing at Cars

It has been reported today, Sunday, that the Netanyahu Government of Occupation has approved an amendment to the Israeli penal code that would enforce tougher punishment – up to 20 years in prison – for Palestinians who throw rocks at cars.

No mention was made of the appropriate punishment for those who use banned chemicals against unarmed civilians including women and children; or missiles to destroy schools and hospitals; high-explosive tank shells and banned cluster bombs to destroy power plants; bulldozers to destroy homes and olive groves, or drone operators sitting at desks who target and summarily execute political dissidents and their families.
