“A controversial fight between Israel and one of its most vociferous human rights critics, the outcome is the expulsion of the director of Human Rights Watch based in Israel, Omar Shakir, who is a US citizen but was accused by the Israelis of advocating BDS, a Palestinian-led campaign calling for the boycotiing divestment and sanctioning of Israel until it meets what it describes as Israel’s obligations under international law. The Israelis say Mr Shakir is in violation of a 2017 law. Human Rights Watch say Mr Shakir’s expulsion places Israel in the same camp as Venezuela Iran and Egypt in barring Human Rights Watch researchers.”
