I've been thinking a lot about #LaraAlqasem today, because I realized we aren't that different. I was in Students for Justice in Palestine, then studied abroad at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I got my student visa with no problem, entered with no problem.
I wonder if I would be able to repeat this today. There was no Canary Mission back then, as far as I know, and BDS was in its infancy. I went from SJP, taking part in Israel apartheid week and helping organize a Palestinian cultural event, to Hebrew U.
And I didn't just go from SJP to Hebrew U, I eventually ended up at an internship for, wait for it, The Israel Project. I lived in Israel, traveled up and down it, all around the West Bank. I lived and learned. Why shouldn't #LaraAlqasem have the same chance?

There is an incredible amount of fake news being spread regarding Israel's fight against the anti-Semitic #BDS campaign and the case of #LaraAlqasem. It's time to set the record straight. Here are the facts: 1/5
Israel, like every democracy, has the right to prevent the entry of foreign nationals, especially those working to harm the country. Therefore we work to prevent the entry of those who promote the anti-Semitic BDS campaign, which calls for Israel's destruction #LaraAlqasem 2/5
#LaraAlqasem was President of a chapter of one of the most extreme and hate-filled BDS groups in the US- the SJP. SJP chapters have repeatedly engaged in anti-Semitic and violent activity with the goal of bullying and silencing students simply for their support of Israel. 3/5

The same Israeli court system which forbid revoking the Israeli citizenship of a Muslim terrorist who planted a bomb on a crowded bus in Tel Aviv, now force sthe gov to allow Lara to study in the Hebrew U.
#Israel's Supreme Court ruled a person can act against the state of Israel for years, but if there is no hard evidence he acted against Israel during the last year,the gov is not allowed to deny his entry to Israel based on his past activity
