Likud minister attacks ‘shameful’ court decision to let US student into Israel

Tourism Minister Yariv Levin (Likud) criticizes the Supreme Court’s decision to allow US student Lara Alqasem to enter Israel, arguing the country’s top court is “acting against Israeli democracy.”

Calling the ruling “shameful,” Levin, says it “creates a green channel for boycott activists to enter the country and continue to harm the state.”

MK Tamar Zandberg of the opposition Meretz party welcomes the ruling, saying it is an “important victory in the struggle to keep Israel a liberal democracy, free from thought police.”
