Israeli ‘Thought Police’ Lose Effort to Ban Student Over BDS

Imagine being detained and ordered into deportation just for trying to attend a foreign university. That’s what happened to Laura Alqasem, an American student of Palestinian origin. Alqasem arrived in Israel earlier this month to study law at Hebrew University. Alqasem had a student visa, but was detained for over two weeks. Israel fought her entry because Alqasem was on a blacklist for supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS. Her detention made headlines around the world and sparked a major legal battle.
