Barak said yesterday [after] receiving multiple death threats, apparently from settlers, over the temporary freeze.

"I suggest we all avoid generalizations," the defense minister told a Tel Aviv University audience, in his first public response to the threats. "I assume that this does not represent the people in Judea and Samaria, or any other marginalized group. When a government makes a decision, that decision must be implemented. Citizens can vote against a government, or demonstrate, but the authority of a government over its citizens is the cornerstone of democracy."

"I am a messenger of every citizen of this state, and everyone knows that I wouldn't step on a fly if I don't have to, and I am not afraid of anyone," he said. Barak was accompanied by an unusually large contingent of bodyguards during the address.

You know, of course, that these threats, against Barak, Police Commissioner, et al., is all "black propaganda" (*).

Why doesn't some MK appeal to the Minister of Intelleignce and/or the Attorney-General and ask to make an inquiry if the GSS is still engaged in provocations?



Black propaganda purports to emanate from a source other than the true one. This type of propaganda is associated with covert psychological operations.

Black propaganda is false information and material that purports to be from a source on one side of a conflict, but is actually from the opposing side. It is typically used to vilify, embarrass or misrepresent the enemy.

I think you missed where he said that the people of Judea and Samaria are a marginalized group.

How many members of the government is he referring to as "marginalized"?
