January 08, 2018 - This weekend, Israel made public a list of 20 organizations, including five U.S.-based organizations, whose leadership is barred from entering Israel due to their support for boycotts for Palestinian rights. Israel's blacklist is a sign of desperation and the latest recognition that the grassroots movement for Palestinian rights is growing in the U.S. and around the world. It is also an alarming reminder that Israel will resort to increasingly repressive means to quash diss...

The store closure comes as a former employee at Leviev’s company testified in a Manhattan court as part of a bribery trial that in 2008 Leviev’s diamond store attempted to pay off New York City police to quash A...

text Department of Justice says Americans can’t challenge the legality of U.S. aid to Israel by Grant F. Smith
The U.S. Department of Justice once again insisted that individual citizens do not have standing to sue the U.S. federal government over foreign aid to Israel. Several Americans from Fagan Dickson in 1975 to author Isaac Asimov in 1991 have tried. But their claims, based on Establishment Clause separation of church and state appeals, failed. But what about challenges to U.S. foreign aid to Israel through the Administrative Procedure Act? IRmep has filed a case that breaks into new territory....

The CIA wants the US District Court for the District of Columbia to dismiss an IRmep lawsuit filed in 2015 that seeks disclosure of top-line budget numbers for secret U.S. intelligence aid to Israel.
