An anti-BDS law that allows hatemongers to pose as martyrs

The term “blacklist” is one that brings up memories of McCarthysim to most Americans. But those on a new Israeli “blacklist” who are to be blocked from entry to that country for promoting boycotts are undeserving of any sympathy.

The 20 listed groups — singled out for their support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement — are a collection of vile hatemongers working not merely to cripple Israel’s economy, but also to isolate it and to treat its people as pariahs who deserve to be attacked by terrorists. So it’s reasonable that the Jewish state should decide that it would no longer allow people intent on doing its citizens harm to do so within its borders.
