Israel just blocked 3 Jews from entering because they support BDS

Israel just blocked 3 Jews from entering because they support BDS”

The bill is specifically meant to target the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement, an ongoing worldwide campaign that seeks to economically pressure Israel to end its establishment of settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and grant Arab-Palestinian citizens full equality.

"We have no information as to why the Israeli government does not want them to enter". She added, "I'm heartbroken and outraged". Israel's BDS ban includes those who have endorsed boycotts of products from Israeli settlements built on occupied Palestinian land in violation of worldwide law and longstanding official USA policy. This is believed to be the first time that Jews have been denied entry to Israel due to their political opinions. When the group attempted to check in for a Lufthansa flight to Tel Aviv at Dulles International Airport, they were informed the Israeli government had ordered they not be allowed to board. "Furthermore, they refused to even show us the Israeli order", he said.

According to The Intercept, a group of 43 senators - 14 Democrats and 29 Republicans - wants to pass Senate Bill 720 (aka. the Israel Anti-Boycott Act), a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support an global boycott against Israel. The United States Congress is now considering the draconian Israel Anti-Boycott Bill that would penalize people and companies that boycott business with Israel or Israeli settlements with penalties of up to 20 years in jail and $1 million in fines. Israel's ban refuses the interfaith leaders entry to Israel and the Occupied Palestinians Territories, including the West Bank and East Jerusalem, under Israeli control. The tour's other 18 passengers were allowed to travel, but faced interrogation upon arrival that the JTA news service said lasted as long as two hours.

Three of the five are JVP members, an organization that promotes human rights for Palestinians.
