Gaza6Jan2OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-The left-wing organization Jewish Voice for Peace has been placed on a BDS blacklist compiled by Israel, Haaretz Hebrew newspaper quoted the Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry as saying.

The ministry has been compiling a list of 20 organizations whose members will not be allowed to enter Israel due to their support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) against Israel.

According to the paper, the Israeli ministry has refused to name the other organizations that are on the list.

The list, which is expected to be compiled in March, will then be passed on to the Interior Ministry, which will be responsible for implementing it.

Jewish Voice For Peace Executive Director Rebecca Vilkomerson said that "Israel’s decision to specifically ban JVP leaders from entry is disconcerting but not surprising, given the consistent erosion of democratic norms as well as increasing fear of the BDS movement in Israel. JVP members are now joining Palestinians, Muslims from around the world, people of color and other activists who are often barred from entry."
