Palestinian BDS Founder Omar Barghouti Denied Entry To US

2

The US government this week denied entry to Omar Barghouti, the leader of the Palestinian-led boycott movement against Israel, according to a Washington-based advocacy group who claimed the travel ban was retribution for his political activities.

Barghouti, a co-founder of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement, possessed a valid US visa, and the required Israel-issued travel documents, the institute said.

Israel has barred Barghouti from leaving the county a number of times in recent years, by refusing to renew travel documents granted to Palestinian residents of Israel who do not have full citizenship.

  1. So who denied him? Us or Israel? From the headline it sounds like the us denied him which is hard to believe. From the article it sounds like Israel denied him. Very believable. Headline should’ve said denied exit not denied entry
