Israel Travel Ban On Critics Of West Bank Settlements. Trump’s Ties To Netanyahu Causing Concern.
Israel is barring anyone from entering the country who supports BDS (boycott, divestiture and sanctions) or who opposes Israeli settlements in the West Bank. The new law is creating bitter conflict between right-wing Zionists, who are supported by neocon Republicans in the US, and left-wing liberals who are supported by the Democrat party in the US. Adding drama to the issue is the fact that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has close ties to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. -GEG
