Siege mentality: Israel designates BDS activist ‘a suspect of hostile terrorist activity’

on 4 Comments

I know Matan Cohen, he’s a really nice guy. Just 22, he got his eye shot out demonstrating against the occupation a few years back. Now he’s an active proponent of boycott/divestment/sanctions, and Noam Sheizaf reports, he was detained for three hours at Ben Gurion airport and had to sign a paper

“They searched my stuff and then asked me to sign a form, on which it was written that I am ‘a suspect of hostile terrorist activity.’” Cohen says that he was told that this sentence doesn’t relate to a specific charge, but rather is a permanent status, determined by the ISA.
