Americans for Peace Now cancels its annual summer trip: 'We are punished because we believe that the West Bank is not Israel'




“Now, because of a law that denies entry to individuals and organizations who publicly support boycotting West Bank settlements, we have to cancel our tour. We, who staunchly oppose any boycotts and sanctions of Israel, who call on our supporters to buy Israeli products and to support Israel, find ourselves being boycotted by Israel. We are punished because we believe that the West Bank is not Israel and because we vociferously oppose the Israeli government’s facts-on-the-ground actions to de facto annex the West Bank and by doing so annul the prospects for a two-state solution.”

Waldman: “[...] What people don’t understand is that Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem [a local human rights group] are Israel’s best ambassadors in the international arena. Our weapon as Americans against anti-Semitism is these organizations.
