  • promote anti-democratic values;
  • support the continued occupation of  Palestinian or other territory acquired  in 1967 and subsequent settlement activity;
  • violate the human rights of any group or individual, advocate human rights selectively for one group over another or reject the principle of the universality of human rights;
  • condone or promote violence or use violent tactics;
  • employ racist or derogatory language or designations about any group based on religion, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation;
  • work to deny:
    • the right of the Jewish people to sovereign self-determination embodied in the State of  Israel, or
