Just as Israel pressures politicians and governments to criminalize or stifle the BDS movement, so too must Israel hide truth of their racist ethnic cleansing and every aspect of the illegal Occupation and colonization (read theft by force) of Palestine, especially the West Bank. The open-air prison that is Gaza they will deal with later. To accomplish hiding truth from the world, journalists and news outlets must be pressured, banned, killed, destroyed, or expelled, especially independent Al Jazeera.
Under the lap-dog co-conspirator trump regime, apartheid Israel is accelerating and consolidating their iron grip and de facto annexation of all of Palestine, as their “Eretz Israel” - “Greater Israel” agenda and racist mythology demands. Removal of all opposition one way or another while the US under trump abandons any/all pretense of being an “honest broker” - the pre-meditated Israeli/Zionist ethnic cleansing and colonization of whatever they want of Palestine by whatever means necessary will become a fait accompli.
World opinion turning against Israeli crimes must be controlled, and journalists, media, news outlets not already controlled or in thrall to Israel, and any other opposition gagged or destroyed - of which the ban on Al Jazeera is just part.
