Legal rights NGO: Israel's BDS blacklist 'reminiscent of Apartheid South Africa'

The ministry said that the list names the primary BDS groups, "who consistently and continuously act against the State of Israel by pressuring groups, institutions and states to boycott Israel". The nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in the latest list come from Europe, the United States, Chile, and South Africa.

Minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan stated that "the consolidation of the list is another step in our struggle against the incitement and lies of the boycott organizations".

The groups that appear on the list are those that are "working in a clear and consistent manner to encourage a boycott of Israel and conduct a campaign of delegitimization against it", Hadashot News reported.

Israel's blacklist includes: the France-Palestine Solidarity Association, the British War on Want, BDS France and Italy, the European Coordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine, the Friends of Al-Aqsa, the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the American Friends Service Committee, the American Muslims for Palestine, the Jewish Voice for Peace, the Code Pink and the National Students for Justice in Palestine.

"I will act against this by every means", Dery said. The blacklist announced Sunday, which follows from that measure, identifies groups that are waging "a false propaganda campaign" and "undermining Israel's legitimacy in the world", the Interior Ministry said.

"By banning the leaders of peace organizations like CODEPINK, Israel is isolating itself even further as an apartheid state", said Ariel Gold, national director of CODEPINK "Their BDS blacklist is contrary to democratic principles and Jewish values".

Volkswagen ID Buzz will use Nvidia's AI technology
This is just one of the many partnerships that NVIDIA has inked to further its position in the self-driving technology arena. The reimagined vehicle in electric auto form will be infused with AI technology for the cockpit and self-driving.

"Despite the fact that my grandparents are buried there, that my aging in-laws still live there, and my extensive ties of friendship and family, my support for the BDS movement for Palestinian rights now excludes me from Israel", she said.

"Rather than change its disastrous occupation policies, Israel is preoccupying itself with campaigns of harassment against anyone who dares to criticize its inhuman treatment of Palestinians".

Hassan Jabareen, of the Legal Centre for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, said the travel ban was draconian and arbitrary.

"It also restricts the ability of Israeli citizens and Palestinian residents of the Occupied Palestinian Territory to exercise their rights of association for the purposes of family unification, for employment, and for cultural and political exchange".

In November Israel denied entry to a USA employee of Amnesty International as part of its anti-boycott offensive under the same rules.
