Israel Bans 20 Organizations from Entry for Promoting Boycott of Country

Israel Bans 20 Organizations from Entry for Promoting Boycott of Country

The statement goes on to attack the organizations, accusing them of employing "a false propaganda campaign aimed at undermining Israel's legitimacy in the world".

"The boycott organizations need to know that the state of Israel will act against them and not allow [them] to enter its territory to harm its citizens", he said. While its impact has been financially negligible and the campaign has been defied by many, it has created an image problem for Israel by drawing support from high-profile names including the pop singer Lorde, who recently canceled a scheduled performance.

"I will act against this by every means", Dery said.

Israel has long tried to to squash the movement, and Sunday's move is seen as a continuation of a March 2017 decision to amend its entry law, permitting Israeli authorities to bar entrance to activists who promote the boycott of Israel or its illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Among the banned groups are the Paris-based Association France Palestine Solidarite, British charity War on Want and the American Friends Service Committee - a Nobel Peace Prize-winning US Quaker organisation.

The head of the Palestinian BDS National Committee slammed the publication of the list "as consistent with the Israeli government's ongoing efforts to suppress the BDS movement for Palestinian rights".

Israel's newly-published "blacklist" of NGOs whose activists are barred from entry is reminiscent of Apartheid South Africa, a legal rights group has declared.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin defended Israel's move during a Sunday meeting with Norway's Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soreide, telling her that a boycott would not jump-start the moribund peace process.

A spokesperson for Israel's ministry of strategic affairs told Al Jazeera that the list did not represent a "blanket ban" on all members of the organisations, but the entry of their members would be considered on a "case by case basis".

The ministry said there is no intention to ban individuals who express political criticism of Israel nor those who hold Israeli citizenship.

The ban is "an overt violation of the constitutional rights of Israeli citizens and the rights guaranteed to Palestinian residents of the OPT under worldwide humanitarian and human rights law".

Hadashot News, the Israel Television News Company, first reported Saturday night that members of JVP, which has over 200,000 online supporters and 70 chapters, could be banned from entering the country.
