Israeli Supreme Court green-lights Israel's 'Cyber Unit' that works with social media giants to censor user content

JERUSALEM, Monday, April 12, 2021 (WAFA) - The Israeli Supreme Court today rejected a petition filed by Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel and the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) giving a green light to the continued operations of the Israeli state attorney’s office Cyber Unit and its "alternative enforcement" model of censoring social media content. Israel’s Cyber Unit uses an "alternative enforcement" mechanism to essentially censor social media platforms and muzzle users: it flags and submits social media posts – without legal proceedings and often without even the knowledge of the individual user – to social media giants and requests their removal.
