French mayor denied entrance to Israel

JERUSALEM – Patrice Leclerc, the mayor of Gennevilliers, a suburb of Paris, and his wife, were barred from entering Israel from Jordan via the Allenby Bridge border crossing due to his support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel and for a Palestinian state.

Ordered by Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, the denial was widely reported in French newspapers.

Leclerc said in a post on Facebook that he had been detained at the border for six hours and questioned six times before his entry was denied. He called the situation whereby Israel can refuse supporters of a Palestinian state entry into Israel “intolerable.”
