Israel cracks down on dissent

Security services admit to spying on an Australian activist in the West Bank.

    The Israeli parliament is considering several new laws that could seriously impact the ability of citizens to criticise the government, according to rights groups.

    Human Rights Watch is reporting a crackdown on political activists who criticise Israeli's treatment of the Palestinians.

    In what rights groups consider part of an alarming pattern, Shin Bet, Israel's internal security agency, recently admitted to spying on a young Australian activist in the West Bank.
