The population authority is increasing pressure on caregivers to report on their relationships and insists that one member of a couple leave Israel if the other wants an extended work permit


Angelica (not her real name) is a 30-year-old caregiver from the Philippines – and if she wants to keep her job, she’s not allowed to conduct a romantic relationship. When her 9-month-old son was 2 months old, Angelica was forced to leave him with her family in the Philippines. She hasn’t seen him since.


Per la prima volta nelle linee guida dell’Autorità israeliana per l’immigrazione si indica “l’attività di boicottaggio” come una delle 28 ragioni per rifiutare l’ingresso nel paese. Intanto il Sud Africa declassa la propria rappresentanza diplomatica a Tel Aviv come forma di protesta per l’occupazione

Roma, 7 luglio 2017, Nena News – Dopo la legge arrivano i primi regolamenti: il quotidiano israeliano Haaretz ha pubblicato ieri la lista delle 28 linee guida predisposte dall’Autorità israeliana per la popolazione, l’immigrazione e i confini per vietare l’ingresso a cittadini stranieri. E per la prima volta compare esplicitamente la dicitura “attività di Bds”: il visto di ingresso sarà negato a chi è ritenuto membro, attivista o sostenitore della campagna globale di boicottaggio, disinvestimento e sanzioni contro Israele.

The option being promoted by Netanyahu and Bennett is one state for one people. One state for the Jewish people, between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River. As far as they are concerned, the Palestinians are not “a people” and never were “a people.” Therefore, they do not deserve a state. They should thank Israel for not expelling them from their homes and for even being willing to make “economic” peace with them.

Israel has arrested hundreds of Palestinians since the lone-wolf intifada began in September 2015, partly by analyzing social media posts. Authorities say these arrests are legitimate, but others see it as a grave violation of human rights


[...] “My indictment was made up of screenshots of my Facebook posts,” [Sami Janazreh] says.

These military courts are predicated on a legal double standard: they only prosecute crimes against Israeli citizens or property; they do not prosecute crimes committed by Israeli settlers living in the Occupied West Bank, or crimes with Palestinian victims.
