Israel Seeks to Ban Entry of BDS Supporters

Israel Seeks to Ban Entry of BDS Supporters

A bill preventing supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement from entering Israel was authorized on Monday for its first reading in the Israeli Parliament, according to Israeli media.
The interior committee of the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, approved the bill initiated by Knesset Member Yinon Magal from the ultranationalist Home Party, paving the way for the bill to enter its first reading in the Knesset, Ma’an News Agency reported.
The bill would allow individuals supporting a boycott to be banned from entering Israel.
The BDS movement was founded in July 2005 by a swath of Palestinian civil society as a peaceful movement to restore Palestinian rights in accordance with international law through strategies of boycotting Israeli products and cultural institutions, divesting from companies complicit in violations against Palestinians and implementing sanctions against the Israeli government.
The move came after several months of Israeli efforts to crack down on the BDS movement.
Israeli Minister of the Interior Aryeh Deri and Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan announced in August that they were forming a joint taskforce to “expel and ban the entry of BDS activists” into Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory.
“This is a necessary step, given the malicious intentions of these activists to delegitimize and spread lies and distortions about the reality in our region,” Erdan was quoted as saying in a statement released at the time, adding that the boycott movement against Israel “must have a price”.
