Israel moves against groups opposed to its anti-Palestinian apartheid

Jerusalem Post- Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs on Sunday released a list of international pro-BDS organizations to be banned from the country for their calls to boycott the Jewish state.

“We have switched from defense to offense. The boycott organizations need to know that the State of Israel will act to stop them and prevent their representatives from entering the country to harm its citizens,” Minister of Public Security and Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan said in a statement.

The ministry cited its successful track record in curtailing BDS efforts, highlighting the recent announcements by Denmark and Norway who said they would toughen their stances against the funding of pro-Palestinian organizations. The ministry also touted their efforts which they claim led 24 US states, as well as the federal government, to pass anti-BDS legislation.
