Knesset Member Yariv Levin (Likud), chair of the Knesset Committee, has proposed a new law that would permit the Minister of the Interior to expel from Israel any foreign citizen who calls for the boycott of Israel of of anything produced in a settlement, and any person who calls for international trials for soldiers who will be involved in carrying out war crimes. Under the proposal, the Minister of the Interior will be able to bar such people from entering the country or expel them from Israel. (Hebrew)

Graffiti curses were sprayed last night on the wall of Chief Military Prosecutor, Major General Avihai Mandelblitt, calling him a traitor. Flyers were also attached to a vehicle parked near his home, saying: “Mandelblitt, don’t get in our way when we’re fighting” and “get your hands off an Israeli soldier.” Graffiti was also sprayed outside Mandelblitt’s home comparing him to Judge Richard Goldstone, who investigated the events of Operation Cast Lead (Hebrew).
