Knesset passes a law preventing entrance foreigners that call to boycott Israel

The Knesset passed, in second and third readings, a new law which states that ‘entrance-visas’ to Israel will not be given to foreign citizens who called for a boycott on Israel. The law also denies entry to people who are members of an organization that calls to boycott Israel. The law was introduced by Knesset Members Roy Folkman of the Kulanu faction and Bezalel Smotrich of the Jewish Home party. It passed by a large majority of 46 in favor, versus 26 against.
