Depeche Mode, Don't Take Any Part in the Israeli System of Apartheid

Don't Play Apartheid Israel

Mar 23, 2013 — Depeche Mode, shamefully, this is a bit of Israeli society, this is not unusual, but prevalent, please refrain from playing in apartheid Israel.
As of Friday there were almost 200 comments under the post offering suggestions of what the Israeli army should do – the vast majority fantasizing extreme sadistic violence and murder.

What makes this even more than usually disturbing is many of the Israeli commentators appear to be high school students themselves – perhaps only a year or two from mandatory army service when they will be empowered to carry out their fantasies.

Shlomo Levi thinks Palestinian children should be gassed to death.

Having regularly documented the horrifying racism and violent fantasies frequently expressed by Israelis on Facebook or Instagram, I thought I had seen everything. But this may be the worst yet. On Wednesday, the picture above of three Palestinian boys in a tent was posted on a popular Facebook page titled in Hebrew " We are all in favor of death to terrorists."
