Thanks for raising Israel's deportation order against me. This isn't about me, her, or the many others who Israel has denied entry, but its efforts to hide its systematic repression & discrimination of Palestinians & muzzle criticism. We won't be silenced.

Just keep in mind that these notions of “delegitimization” and “right to exist” are made up notions created by Israel to basically silence critics of their unlawful human rights abuses and violations of the laws of war. Like settlements, which are war crimes.

If he seems upset, it's because he is and everyone else should be.

I believe probably represents the pulse of contemporary American Jewish politics on Israel more than anyone else. This is much closer to the mainstream approach than anything ADL, AJC, Conf of Pres, AIPAC represent.

Thank you for addressing pinkwashing. The fight that Palestinian LGBTQ folks is undergoing should not be used as opportunity to smoke-screen the injustices of the Israeli occupation—which oppresses all Palestinians, regardless of their sexual or gender expression

The idea that Egypt under Pres Sisi, notorious for its systematic torture, would host a regional conference on fighting torture is called an “absolute Kafkaesque horror.” Though I'm not sure that even Kafka would have suggested such a grotesque charade.

Glad to see officials admit the goal is transfer. A deliberate policy to worsen conditions in Gaza has devastated the lives of 2 million people. Israel is not a savior, it's pretending to rescue the inhabitants of a burning building it itself set on fire.

Ilhan Omar mentioned director , who is trying to deport. A court upheld the orders based on a law that denies foreigners entry if they call for boycotts. Its the first time the law is being used against somebody legally.

Algerian authorities have deported 's . They had detained him for 10 hours and seized his passports, holding them for 10 days before deporting him. Very happy you're back, Ahmed!

So if you criticize Israel for carrying out crimes - like growing settlements in occupied Palestinian territory - which the UNSC resolution most recently reminded us is a crime and the ICC is now examining for prosecution - you are “delegitimizing”
