My #THREAD coming up on the rather regrettable #NataliePortman saga, why it's so damaging and how it reflects on outlook of American Jewish community. 1. Firstly, no #NataliePortman, Israel was not created because of the Holocaust.
The Jewish people have had 3,000+ year connection & inextricable bond to the Land of Israel, with the modern Zionist movement long pre-detating the Holocaust.
Earlier today, the Ministry of Strategic Affairs released list of 20 orgs recommended to be denied entry into Israel based on their #BDS activities.
Lot of misinformation, so will endeavour to clarify here ⬇⬇⬇ 2. First & foremost, *EVERY* nation has right under int'l and domestic law to determine who enters and does not enter its borders. There is no automatic right of entry to non-citizens.
