Israel’s interior minister moves to deport BDS founder Barghouti
[Jpost] Interior Minister Arye Deri took the first steps toward revoking the permanent resident status of Omar Barghouti,
...one of a long list of members of the Barghouti clan who have prosecuted the war against Israel for over a generation, both politically and as terrorists for both Fatah and Hamas. This one organizes academic boycotts of Israel as well as BDS...
founder of the antisemitic and anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
...formally the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC). Its multi-partisan membership includes Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Paleostine, groups listed as terrorist organizations by the US...
"I plan to act quickly to revoke Omar Barghouti’s resident status in Israel," Deri said on Sunday.
"He is a person who is doing everything to hurt the country, and therefore, he cannot enjoy the privilege of being a resident of Israel."

Deri instructed the legal department of the Population, Immigration and Borders Authority to prepare the legal framework to revoke Barghouti’s resident status over breach of trust.

The interior minister’s decision came after Deputy Attorney-General Dina Zilber said he has the authority to do so. A 2018 amendment to the residence law allows the interior minister to cancel resident status over breach of trust, without approval from the Attorney-General’s Office.

In this case, the breach of trust is that Barghouti is promoting boycotts against Israel from within Israel, Deri’s front man explained.
To be fair, he also promotes boycotts against Israel from outside Israel. He’ll be able to do that more easily once he no longer has to get permission for visas from the Israeli government, which should make CAIR and the British Labour Party memberships awfully happy...
Barghouti resides in Acre, having moved to Israel in 1993 after marrying an Israeli-Arab woman. He has a PhD in ethics from Tel Aviv University, despite calling for an academic boycott of Israel.

Barghouti opposes "a Jewish state in Paleostine in any shape or form," he said in a talk to the Dag Hammarskjold Society in 2013.

He does not speak to Israeli media and therefore was unavailable for comment.

"Barghouti led a determined battle against the occupation and settlements," said Joint List MK Ahmed Tibi. "He received his resident status legally, and did not commit a crime other than expressing clear and determined stances here in Israel and in the world against the occupation and colonialism and used the same methods the blacks used in South Africa.

"Boycott is a legitimate nonviolent mode of struggle," he added. "Deri’s intention is arbitrary, and an attempt to silence all actions against the occupation even if they are nonviolent."
Taqiyyah. Israel recognizes the soft jihad of the law as well as the hard jihad of the sword, so you aren’t fooling anyone, O Joint List MK.
