On November 27, my colleague Belén and I were denied entry to Israel. The official reason: “prevention of illegal immigration considerations.” The allegation: participation in human rights demonstrations. The consequences: expulsion back to Germany and, according to our Israeli lawyers, an implicit five-year travel ban to Israel. We’re now taking legal action to appeal this decision, and I’d like to tell my side of the story.
