Banned: BDS activist who loves to hate Israel, expulsed from Israel
⛔ The Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday rejected an appeal by Omar Shakir, a Muslim BDS activist who operates under the guise of a Human Rights Watch’s local director.
A court has ordered him to leave the country within two weeks, citing his ongoing support of boycotts of Israel during his time in the country.
Attorneys for the BDS activist who loves to hate Israel said they would appeal the rejection by the Jerusalem District Court and take his case to the Supreme Court.
Shakir, who is a U.S. citizen, had his residency permit revoked by Interior Minister Arye Dery last May for his activity against Israel.
Dery made the decision following a directive from the Strategic Affairs Ministry, which stated that Shakir “frequently retweets and shares content on BDS against Israel.”
