18 groups that advocate boycotting Israel will now be denied entry

"As the minister in charge of the Israel Entry Law, I made it perfectly clear that I would use my authority to prevent individuals and representatives of groups whose sole goal is to harm Israel and its security, from entering its borders".

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.

The Israeli government on Sunday identified 20 global organizations it says promote a boycott of Israel, and said the Interior Ministry will work to block members of those groups from entering the country.

Erdan said the blacklisted groups had consistently acted against Israel by exerting pressures on global groups, institutions and states to boycott Israel.

In August past year , Amazon and Microsoft announced that they were working together to share their digital assistant's abilities. Alexa already works with the Acer Air Monitor , and it will also be available on Acer's new V6820M and V6820i 4K UHD projectors.

"The boycott organizations must know that the state of Israel will act against them", Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said in a statement.

"By waging an all-out intelligence, propaganda and legal war on the peaceful BDS movement for Palestinian rights and by now banning worldwide human rights organizations and advocates from entry, Israel's desperate and brutal attempts to weaken support for BDS are already backfiring", Omar Barghouti, the co-founder of BDS, told the Washington Post.

AFSC received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1947 for its support and help of refugees coming from Nazi Germany during World War II.

"We answered the call for divestment from apartheid South Africa and we have done the same with the call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions from Palestinians who have faced decades of human rights violations", said Kerri Kennedy, an AFSC official responsible for global programs.

Senate Bill to Restore Net Neutrality Achieves Important Milestone
Opposition has lost a battle, which turned bitter and quite personal quickly, and has moved onto the being hard stage. The bill also requires the California Public Utilities Commission to establish new rules to enforce net neutrality .

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement works primarily in Western countries to persuade companies, entertainers, universities and churches to boycott the Jewish state, divest from it and sanction it in order to force a pro-Palestinian political agenda.

In March a year ago Israel's parliament passed a law barring entry into the country for those supporting a boycott of Israel.

To Jeff Halper, the head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, adding the Quaker organization to its list of blacklisted groups proves just how misguided the Israeli government is. "BDS has become a synonym for anyone critical of Israel", Halper told Haaretz.

It's quite telling that Israel is willing to ignore a group's history of support for the Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany.
