How high is the fine, how likely is it to get caught, how much is the profit due to the lie?

Whether it's legal or not is meaningless. When fine * chance is lower than revenue, it's a matter for finance, not for legal. Because then it's little more than a part of the calculation with tax reducing reserves "for possible legal fees" in the financial statements.

Israel is not trying to censor speech. They're trying to stop incitement.
In other words, they're trying to stop predominantly arabic language terrorist recruiting and training material.

Sure sure. And we should censor all the pro-life videos so we can stop terrorist recruiting and training material.

Since most terrorist killings in the US over the past decade have been white Christian men, we should censor Fox News and close churches, right?

When has censorship ever been a solution?

Both sides are guilty of atrocities, but this being Slashdot... I'd rather the side that has an industry of designing CPUs for Intel beat the side that has a bizarre totalitarian religion that routinely generates suicide bombers.

One has a totalitarian martyrhood culture, and the other is using them as substitute culprits to avenge the Holocaust on. Why side with either? Unless, of course, your apocalyptic cult sees Israel as a key to its end-of-the-world prophecies, which seems to be the case for alarmingly many people.

Yes and no. Anyone can convert, and no one can then consider you any less Jewish than any other Jew, no matter their pedigree.

Then where are the black and Chinese Hasidic Jews?

No, anyone can not convert and be considered just as Jewish as any other Jew. Maybe in some liberal US synagogue, but just look at the racist treatment African jews get in Israel.

as it seems like it was coincidence that he ended up there (story is looking more like he hit a bank and ended up at PP, being that no one from PP was actually hurt....)

So when the police said that the shooter mentioned "baby parts" it was because he was at the local bank trying to withdraw baby parts?

And the propane tanks he carried into the Planned Parenthood were going to be used for his camp stove?

Jesus, man. Will you really twist yourself into a pretzel rationalizing terrorism just because you share the same ideology as the perpetrator?

Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth.
