Israeli sources have brought to light that the Obama administration has begun denying many more Israeli applicants entry into the U.S. than before, plus they’re requiring some of those with existing Visas to leave the country at least temporarily, while supposedly, awaiting renewal.
Sources inside the U.S. government state that it’s presumed the reason is related to the acceleration and success of the, BDS movement which is in “full-swing” in Europe.
The pro-Palestinian / pro-leftist “BDS” tactic, has largely been ignored (of course) by the left-leaning American Media.
This seems to fit right in with Obama’s policy changes and treatment of Israel since Obama took command. They portray Gazan children as deprived even with all the million$ in aid …
Sources in Israel’s Foreign Ministry charged that the increase in rejections stems from political motives, and was meant to remove Israel from the “white list” of nations with a visa rejection rate of under 3%. Citizens of nations on the list do not need a visa to visit America.
It was further revealed, two weeks ago, that Israeli security agents are similarly being discriminated against by America. Senior security personnel reported that in the past year there have been hundreds of cases of Shin Bet and Mossad defense workers being told they cannot visit America.
Security personnel already in the US are similarly only being given short-term visas according to the reports, forcing them to leave for Canada and wait weeks for their visas to be renewed.
The rising rates of rejection come as Kerry’s pressure on Israel to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority (PA) has led to heightened tension between the two countries.
Reports in January revealed Kerry as being behind European boycotts targeting Israel, and he has likewise called Israel’s demand for recognition as a Jewish state “a mistake.”
