German Court Upholds Police Ban on Palestinian Nakba Event Over Antisemitism, Incitement Fears | Haaretz - 20 May 2023 |
Police say the event could have led to 'antisemitic incitement of the people, glorification of violence, the conveyance of a willingness to use violence and thus to intimidation and violence'

The ban on the demonstration, which had been planned for this Saturday, cannot be challenged further.
Police had banned the event because they said there was a danger that it could lead to "antisemitic incitement of the people, glorification of violence, the conveyance of a willingness to use violence and thus to intimidation and violence."
Nakba Day, which is observed on May 15, commemorates the flight and expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the 1948 war that followed the founding of the state of Israel.

Israel to retain control of Gaza's security after war: Netanyahu | Anadolu Agency - 12 hrs ago |
Israeli premier says Gaza 'must be demilitarized' after war, rejects idea of international force
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that the Israeli army will retain control of Gaza's security after the war, rejecting the possibility of giving that responsibility to an international force.
Speaking at a news conference after a meeting with his war cabinet, Netanyahu said Gaza "must be demilitarized" after the war ends.
"And in order for Gaza to be demilitarized, there is only one force that can see to this demilitarization - and that force is the IDF," he said, referring to the Israeli army, adding "no international force can be responsible for this."
"We have seen what has happened in other places where they brought in international forces for the goal of demilitarization. I am not prepared to close my eyes and accept any other arrangement."
Noting that the Israeli army had expanded its operation to the southern Gaza Strip, Netanyahu said the army had also besieged Jabalia and Khan Younis, adding "there is no place we cannot reach."
He called on the civilian population to leave the areas in which they are fighting the Palestinian group Hamas.
"I say here to our friends in the world who are pressing for a quick end to the war: Our only way to end the war, and end it quickly, is to apply crushing pressure against Hamas - and destroy it," he added.
