US-based Jewish Voice for Peace was also on the blacklist, which Lapid say was particularly dumb since, as a group with Jewish members, they could all come to Israel under Israeli law irrespective of this ban.
American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker group on the list, said it would continue to work for "peace and justice". There are a few groups from South America and one from South Africa as well.
European groups on the list include BDS France; BDS Italy; War on Want; Friends of Al-Aksa; The European Coordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine; and Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
The ban is "an overt violation of the constitutional rights of Israeli citizens and the rights guaranteed to Palestinian residents of the OPT under global humanitarian and human rights law".
"The UK government must condemn this latest crackdown on human rights defenders".
Not only Palestinians but also anyone standing up for the rights of the Palestinians will be silenced!
According to Diker, "Over the last two years the government has done a lot of homework to determine who are the worst violators in the BDS campaign that completely reject Israel's very right to exist as a Jewish State".

"Boris Johnson must take robust action to protect the rights of United Kingdom citizens to protest peacefully and to cross borders without illegitimate restriction".
Some of the organizations included in the ban responded on social media, with the Jewish Voice for Peace tweeting: "Israel's decision to specifically ban JVP is disconcerting but not surprising, given the further erosion of democratic norms and rising anxiety about the power of BDS as a tool to demand freedom". "No country would have allowed critics coming to harm the country to enter it".
"The boycott organizations need to know that the state of Israel will act against them and not allow [them] to enter its territory to harm its citizens", he said. It said "central figures in key boycott organisations" risked being prevented entry.
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan declared in a statement that the move reflected how Israel has "moved from defense to attack" and called out the BDS movement for spreading "false propaganda". He called the blacklist "another step in our battle against the incitement and lies spread by the boycott groups".
In the years since its formation, the BDS movement has persuaded several church organizations to divest themselves of Israel-related investments and has garnered support on US college campuses.
Supporters of the movement say the tactics are a nonviolent way to promote the Palestinian cause, while Israel says the campaign goes beyond fighting its occupation of territory Palestinians claim for their state and often masks a more far-reaching aim to delegitimize or destroy the nation of Israel.
