Aryeh Deri, July 22, 2019.

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri has taken steps to revoke the Israeli residency of Omar Barghouti, the front man for the international anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanctions campaign to destroy the Jewish State.

“Tonight, I instructed the Population and Immigration Authority to prepare an opinion to cancel the residency in Israel of Omar Barghouti, founder of the boycott movement against Israel,” Deri wrote in a post on Twitter.

“This is a man who works to harm the country, to carry out libel against it, so he must not enjoy the right to be an Israeli resident.”

At present, Deri continues to carry out his duties as an interim Interior Minister in the caretaker government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu until the question of forming a new coalition government emerging from the second election of 2019 is resolved.

Given the current situation in which the country finds itself – with the two largest parties unable to form that coalition and neither able to convince the other to join in a unity government – it is possible that Israelis may be forced to return to the polls to break the deadlock in an unprecedented third election, which if necessary, probably would take place sometime in March 2020.
