Palestinian flags are not outlawed in Israel. So why do Israeli police officers in East Jerusalem and elsewhere systematically confiscate Palestinian flags, and why does the police go to such great lengths to remove Palestinian flags from the public domain?
This question is the focus of a new petition to Israel's Supreme Court, submitted by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI). Eyal Lurie-Pardes, who co-wrote the petition with ACRI's Tal Hassin is the guest on this episode.
